G G                               D7 D7                  G G
There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbor
G7 G7 C C
tomorrow for old England she sails
Am Am C C
far away from your land of endless sunshine
Am7 Am7 D7 D7
to my land full of rainy skies and gales
G G D7 D7 G G
and I shall be on aboard that ship tomorrow
G7 G7 C C
though my heart is full of tears at this farewell

Chorus:
Am Am Bm Bm D D G G Em Em Am Am D7 D7
For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
Am7 Am7 D7 D7 G G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Am Am Bm Bm D D G G Em Em Am Am D7 D7
for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
Am7 Am7 D7 D7 G G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell

Verse#2
G G D7 D7 G G
I heard there's a wicked war a blazing
G7 G7 C C
and the taste of war I know so very well
Am Am C C
Even now I see that foreign flag a raising
Am7 Am7 D7 D7
their guns on fire as we sailed into hell
G G D7 D7 G G
I have no fear of death it brings no sorrow
G7 G7 C C
but how bitter will be this last farewell

Chorus:
Am Am Bm Bm D D G G Em Em Am Am D7 D7
For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
Am7 Am7 D7 D7 G G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Am Am Bm Bm D D G G Em Em Am Am D7 D7
for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
Am7 Am7 D7 D7 G G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell

Verse#3:
G G D7 D7 G G
Though death and darkness gather all about me
G7 G7 G G
and my ship be torn apart upon the sea
Am Am C C
I shall smell again the fragrance of these islands
Am7 Am7 D7 D7
in the heaving waves that brought me once to thee
G G D7 D7 G G
and should I return safe home again to England
G7 G7 C C
I shall watch the English mist roll through the dale

Chorus:
Am Am Bm Bm D D G G Em Em Am Am D7 D7
For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
Am7 Am7 D7 D7 G G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Am Am Bm Bm D D G G Em Em Am Am D7 D7
for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
Am7 Am7 D7 D7 G G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
