Sail On  Commodores

...SAIL ON... by The Commodores

*from 'Midnight Magic' (1979)*
(Original Key: C#)
C, Dm, C
Verse 1:
[C] Sail on down the line,
About a, [Dm]half a mile or so.
Don't really wanna know,
[C] Where you're going.
[C] Maybe once or twice you see,
[Dm] Time after time I tried,
To hold on to what we got,
But [C]now you're going.
Chorus 1:
[F] And I don't [G]mind,
About the [C]things you're [C/B]gonna [Am]sail on,[C7]
F G C C/B Am, C7
I give all my money and my time.
[F] I know it's a [G]shame,
But I'm [C]giving you [C/B]back your [Am]name,
[G] Yeah, [F]yeah.
Bridge 1:
Yes, [F]I'll be [C]on my [Dm]way,
I [F]won't be [C]back to [Dm]stay.
I [F]guess I'll [C]move a-[Dm]long,
I'm looking for a [C]good...[G]time.
C, Dm, C
Verse 2:
[C] Sail on down the line, it's,
[Dm] Funny how the time can go,
Friends says they told me so,
But it [C]doesn't matter.
[C] It was plain to see,
That [Dm]a small town boy like me,
Just wasn't your cup of tea,
I was [C]wishful thinking.
Chorus 2:
[F] I gave you my [G]heart,
And I [C]tried to [C/B]make you [Am]happy,[C7]
[F] And you gave me [G]nothing in re-[C]turn.[C/B] [Am]
[C7] You know it [F]ain't so hard to [G]say;
Would you [C]please just [C/B]go a-[Am]way...
[G] Yeah, [F]yeah.
Bridge 2:
I've [F]thrown aw[C]ay the [Dm]blues,
I'm [F]tired of [C]being [Dm]used.
I want [F]every-[C]one to [Dm]know,
I'm looking for a [C]good...[G]time.
[Bb] Good [F]time..[G].
[Fmaj7] Sail on, [Em7]honey,
[Fmaj7] Good times, never [Em7]felt so [Dm7]good.
[Fmaj7] Sail on, [Em7]honey,
[Fmaj7] Good times, never [Em7]felt so [Dm7]good.
