Sierra Leone

	  		
verse 1 
  C            G             C       G 
I found an old letter caught under a stone 
       C          G          F            G 
By the sea in the lee of the cliffs, all alone 
    C          Am            Em           F 
Its pages were tattered from where it had blown 
   Dm            C         G         C 
To land from the hand of a sailor, unknown 
F            C          G      C 
There by the coast of Sierra Leone 


verse 2 
                  G             C               G 
"Dear Friend", it read, "I have missed you, you know 
         C              G              F        G 
When you walked and you talked with me so long ago 
  C           Am        Em            F 
I shoved you aside as I rushed to and fro 
Dm             C           G         C   F  C  G  C  Am 
Friend, my old friend, who never let go"

Interlude: C verse 3 C G C G My ship hugs the rocks, and the gale?s my back door C G F G Lashing and smashing and waging its war C Am Em F My crew man the lifeboat, please see them ashore Dm C G C All told, it won?t hold even one person more F C G C Here by Sierra Leone?s rocky floor verse 4 G C G Forgive my neglect, old friend, it was my loss C G F G I wait for my fate as the ship starts to toss C Am Em F I feel the cold waters, I see the dark moss Dm C G C F C G C Am Will I sail through this gale or to heaven on a cross?

Interlude C Verse 5 C G C G As I stood on the rocks of Sierra Leone C G F G By the sea, the blue sea of Sierra Leone C Am Em F Close by the spot where the letter had blown Dm C G C And thought for naught of the sailor, unknown F C G C There by the coast of Sierra Leone Verse 6 G C G Then I saw old letters carved into the stone C G F G By the sea, the blue sea of Sierra Leone C Am Em F 'Thank you, old Friend', just those words, alone Dm C G C Carved there like a prayer by a sailor, unknown F C G C Here on the coast of Sierra Leone F C G C Here by the hand of a sailor, unknown
