Southern Cross

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		

           G         F                     C  

Got out of town on a boat gon' to southern islands.  

          G     F                  C  

Sailing a reach before a following sea.  

        G              F             C  

She was making for the trades on the outside,  

        G        F           C  

And the downhill run to Papeete.  



        G            F               C  

Off the wind on this heading lie the Marquesas.  

       G              F         C      Am     G  

We got eighty feet of waterline nicely making way.  

     G            F                  C  

In a noisy bar in Avalon, I tried to call you,  

         G                F            C         Am   G     G  

But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away. (think about)  



F               C          F      G  

Think about how many times I have fallen.  

F           C         F             G  

Spirits are using me; larger voices callin'.  

F                   C          F            G  

What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten.  

            C   F      G      C                F     G  

I have been around the world, lookin' for that woman-girl  

    C          F      G  

Who knows love can endure.  

                G G  F F  C C C C  

And you know it will.  

                G G  F F  C C C G  

And you know it will  



         G                F             C  

When you see the Southern Cross for the first time,  

    G              F                 C  

You understand now why you came this way.  

           G                  F               C  

'Cause the truth you might be runnin' from is so small,  

            G          F            C            Am     G  

But it's as big as the promise, the promise of a comin' day.  



       G           F                         C  

So I'm sailing for tomorrow. My dreams are a-dying.  

       G          F                   C           Am     G  

And my love is an anchor tied to you, tied with a silver chain.  

                    F                   C  

I have my ship, and all her flags are a-flying.  

       G               F         C     Am     G      G  

She is all that I have left, and music is her name. (think about)  



F               C          F      G  

Think about how many times I have fallen.  

F           C         F             G  

Spirits are using me; larger voices callin'.  

F                   C          F             G  

What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten.  

            C   F      G      C                F     G  

I have been around the world, lookin' for that woman-girl  

    C          F      G  

Who knows love can endure.  

                G G  F F  C C C C  

And you know it will.  

                G G  F F  C C C G  

And you know it will  



      G              F           C  

So we cheated and we lied and we tested.  

       G               F                C       Am       G  

And we never failed to fail; it was the easiest thing to do.  

G           F          C  

You will survive being bested.  

G                  F                  C            Am     G  

Somebody fine will come along make me forget about loving you  



                 G G  F F  C C C C / G G  F F  C C C G  

In the Southern Cross.
