Come Sail Away  Styx

Written by Dennis DeYoung
Lead Vocals by Dennis DeYoung
 Intro - C - Dm - Em - Dm - C - G

[C]I'm sa[Bm]iling a[Am]way, [G] [F] set an open course for the v[G]irgin sea
[C]I've g[Bm]ot to be fr[Am]ee, [G] [F]free to face the life that's ah[G]ead of me
[Am] On board, I'm the captain, [G]so climb aboard
[Am] We'll search for tomorrow on e[G]very shore
And I'll [C]try, oh[Bm] Lord, I'll t[Am]ry [G] [F]to carry o[G]n[C] [Dm] [Em] [Dm] [C] [G]
[C]I lo[Bm]ok to the s[Am]ea, [G] [F]reflections in the waves spark my me[G]mory
S[C]ome ha[Bm]ppy, some s[Am]ad[G] [F]
I think of childhood friends and the dr[G]eams we had
[Am] We live happily forever,[G] so the story goes
[Am] But somehow we missed out[G] on that pot of gold
But w[C]e'll try b[Bm]est that we [Am]can[G], [F] to carry [G]on[C] [Dm] [Em] [Dm] [C] [G]
( Im still not sure about this part.
Looks like variations of C and G. Corrections welcome. )
A ga[C]thering of angels ap[G]peared above my head
They s[C]ang to me this song of hope, and t[G]his is what they said
They said c[C]ome sail away, come sail away
Come s[G]ail away with me .. lad
C[C]ome sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with [Ab]me
(This break uses Ab most of the way i think)
I tho[C]ught that they were angels, b[G]ut to my surprise
They cli[C]mbed aboard their starship and he[G]aded for the skies
Singing c[C]ome sail away, come sail away
Come a[G]way with me
C[C]ome sail away, come sail away
Come s[G]ail away with [Ab]me
