[Em] [D] [Em] [D]  
[Em]Goodbye, little Rob[D]in-Marie
[Em]Don't try following [D]me
[Em]Don't cry, little Rob[D]in-Marie
'cause you [C]know I'm [C/B]comi[Am]ng [Em]home soon.
[Em]My ship's leaving on a [D]three-year tour
[Em]The next tide will take us from [D]shore
[Em]Windlaced, gather in [D]sail and spray
On a [C]search for the [C/B]migh[Am]ty [Em]sperm whale
[A]Fly your willow [E]branches
Wrap your [F#m]body round my [C#]soul
[D]Lay down your reeds and [A]drums on my soft [G]sheets
There are [A]years behind us [E]reaching
to the [F#m]place where hearts are [D]beating
and I [A]know you're the last true [D]love I'll ever [F#m]meet,
and I [A]know you're the last true [D]love I'll ever [F#m]meet.
