G7 C Am Dm7 G7 C Am Somewhere beyond the sea, F G7 C E7 Am Somewhere waiting for me, G7 C C7 F A7 Dm7 My lover stands on golden sands G7 Am Cdim Dm7 D7 G7 And watches the ships that go sail - ing. C Am Dm7 G7 C Am Somewhere beyond the sea, F G7 C E7 Am She's there, watching for me. G7 C C7 F A7 Dm7 If I could fly like birds on high, G7 Am Cdim Dm7 G7 C Am Cdim B7 Then straight to her arms I'd go sail - ing. Bridge: E C#m7 A B7 E C#m7 It's far, beyond a star, A B7 E C#m7 Gdim D7 It's near, beyond the moon; G Em Am7 D7 G Em I know beyond a doubt Am7 D7 G Gdim Edim G7 My heart will lead me there soon. C Am Dm7 G7 C Am We'll meet beyond the shore, F G7 C E7 Am We'll kiss, just as before; G7 C C7 F A7 Dm7 Happy we'll be, beyond the sea, First Time: G7 Am Cdim Dm7 G7 C Am Cdim B7 And never a - gain I'll go sail - ing. Last Time: G7 Am Cdim Dm7 G7 C Am Dm7 And never a - gain I'll go sail - ing. G7 C Am Dm7 G7 C Am Dm7 Fdim CM7 No more sailin' bye-bye sailin'.
