The Last Farewell

** "Songbook" Songbook.TheLastFarewell -> Songbook.FullName ontrail

By: Roger Whittaker & R.A. Webster, 1975


D7 G D7 Am7 G D7
There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbour
G G7 C
Tomorrow for old England she sails
Am C C/B Am Am7
Far away from your land of endless sunshine
Am Am+7 Am7 Am7/G D7
To my land full of rainy skies and gales
G D7 G D7
And I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow
G G7 C
Though my heart is full of tears at this farewell
 
Chorus
Am D G Em Am D7
For you are beautiful, and I have loved you dearly
Am D7 G Em Am
More dearly than the spoken word can tell
D G Em Am D7
For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly
Am D7 G
More dearly than the spoken word can tell
 
D7 G D7 Am7 G D7
I've heard there's a wicked war a blazing
G G7 C
And the taste of war I know so very well
Am C C/B Am Am7
Even now I see the foreign flag a raising
Am Am+7 Am7 Am7/G D7
Their guns on fire as we sail into hell
G D7 Am7 G D7
I have no fear of death, it brings no sorrow
G G7 C
But how bitter will be this last farewell
 
Chorus
 
D7 G D7 Am7 G D7
Though death and darkness gather all about me
G G7 C
My ship be torn apart upon the sea
Am C C/B Am Am7
I shall smell again the fragrance of these islands
Am Am+7 Am7 Am7/G D7
And the heaving waves that brought me once to thee
G D7 Am7 G D7
And should I return safe home again to England
G G7 C
I shall watch the English mist roll through the dell
 
Chorus
