(Intro) Cm Abmaj7 Cm Abmaj7
(Verse 1)
[Cm]Waiting at the water's edge, watching all the ships
As [Bb/D]they are [Eb]heading for the [Ab]harbour [Bb]wall;
I was [Cm]just a boy,[Abmaj7] I was [Cm]just a boy,[Abmaj7]
Dreaming of the [Cm]wide world,[Abmaj7] dreaming of the [Cm]wide world,[Abmaj7]
(Verse 2)
[Cm]Watching as they disappear, reading out the names of
[Bb/D]All the [Eb]places I have [Ab]never [Bb]been;
Looking [Cm]out to sea,[Abmaj7] looking [Cm]out to sea,[Abmaj7]
Dreaming of a [Cm]wide world,[Abmaj7] dreaming of a [Cm]wide world,[Abmaj7]
Oo[Fm]h, Ooo[Cm]h, Oo[Fm]h, Ooo[Bb]h, I wish I was
[Eb]Sailing [Ab]away, [Eb]sailing a[Ab]way, [Eb]sailing a[Ab]way[Bb]
With [Cm]you tonight, [Abmaj7] with [Cm]you tonight
(Verse 3)
[Cm]Walking down another street, underneath the red lights
[Bb/D]I am [Eb]watching where the [Ab]shadows [Bb]fall,
Looking [Cm]at the girl[Abmaj7]s, listening [Cm]to the girls[Abmaj7],
Dreaming of a [Cm]new world, [Abmaj7] dreaming of that [Cm]new world,[Abmaj7]
[Fm]Ooh, O[Cm]ooh, [Fm]Ooh, O[Bb]ooh, I wish I was
[Eb]Sailing [Ab]away, [Eb]sailing a[Ab]way, [Eb]sailing a[Ab]way[Bb]
In your [Cm]arms tonight,[Abmaj7] in your [Cm]arms tonight[Abmaj7]
I wish I was [Eb]sailing a[Ab]way, [Eb]sailing a[Ab]way
[Eb]Sailing a[Ab]way,[Bb] with [Cm]you now,[Abmaj7] with [Cm]you now.
Cm Abmaj7 Cm Abmaj7 (repeat to fade)
