F F Dm Dm Gm Gm C7 C7 F F Dm Dm
Somewhere beyond the sea

Gm Gm C7 C7 F F A7 A7 Dm7 Dm7
Somewhere waiting for me

C7 C7 F F F7 F7 Bb Bb D7 D7 Gm7 Gm7
My lover stands on golden sands

A7 A7 Dm Dm Db7 Db7 C7 C7
And watches the ships that go Sail -ing


F F Dm Dm Gm Gm C7 C7 F F Dm Dm
Somewhere beyond the sea

Gm Gm C7 C7 F F A7 A7 Dm7 Dm7
She's there watching for me

C7 C7 F F F7 F7 Bb Bb D7 D7 Gm7 Gm7
If I could fly like birds on high

A7 A7 Dm Dm (Db7 Db7) C7 C7 F F E7 E7
Then straight to her arms I'd go Sai -ling (pow)


A A F#m F#m Bm7 Bm7 E7 E7 A A F#m F#m
It's far beyond the stars

Bm7 Bm7 E7 E7 A A E7 E7 A A G7 G7
It's near beyond the moon (Pow) (Pow)

C C Am Am Dm7 Dm7 G7 G7 C C Am Am
I know beyond a doubt

Dm Dm G7 G7 C C C C
My heart will lead me there soon


F F Dm Dm Gm Gm C7 C7 F F Dm Dm
We'll meet beyond the shore
Gm Gm C7 C7 F F A7 A7 Dm7 Dm7
We'll kiss just as before
C7 C7 F F F7 F7 Bb Bb D7 D7 Gm7 Gm7
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
A7 A7 Dm Dm Db7 Db7 C7 C7
And never again I'd go sai -ling

Apparently the D7 D7 and Db7 Db7 towards the end of the verses are supposed to be D9 D9 and Db9 Db9. I think it sounds better my way.

About this song

"Beyond the Sea" is a 1946 contemporary pop song with music taken from the song "La Mer" by Charles Trenet and lyrics by Jack Lawrence. Trenet had composed "La Mer" (which means "The Sea") with French lyrics totally different and unrelated to the English language version that Lawrence composed. Trenet's French version was an homage and ode to the changing moods of the sea, while Lawrence, by just adding one word "Beyond" to the title, gave him the start whereby he made the song into one of a lover pining for a lost love.[1]
