She Took the Wind From His Sails  George Strait

"She Took the Wind from His Sails"
by George Strait from the album "George Strait"
Written by Dean Dillon and Donny Kees
Transcribed by Jason and Jennifer Hannan
Intro: D A
[D]Outer banks of North Carolina
Lies a sleepy harbor town
Generations of old sailors
Dropped their sails and [G]settled down
[D]Sam he is a young seafarer
Grandson of a schooner man
Catherine is a sail maker’s daughter
Today he’s gonna [G]take her hand
[Bm]Calm [G]waters
[Bm]Wish them [G]well
His ship’s come in
[A]She’s put the wind in his [D]sails
[D]Catherine is a canvas painter
Paints the sun and sand and sea
Lately she’s been painting a portrait
Sammy is a [G]dad to be
Repeat chorus
[D]January brought the fever
Sam was right there by her side
Doctor told him son I’m sorry
But Catherine needs your [G]prayers tonight
[D]Morning light brought Sam a daughter
Fever took his better half
Sam gave Catherine to the water
As he held their baby [G]to his chest
[Bm]Calm [G]waters
[Bm]Wished him [G]well
His ship came in
But [A]she took the wind from his [D]sails
His [G]ship came in
But [A]she took the wind from his [D]sails
