The Last Farewell

	  D7        G                    D7    Am7     G 
There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbor; 
 
D7 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 
And I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow, 
 
            G               G7                C 
Though my heart is full of tears at this farewell; 
 
 
Refrain: 
 
D9  Am7  D7  G    Em   C      C/B        Am7  
For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly, 
 
      C      C/B     Am7     D7       G    Am7  G 
More dearly than the spoken word can tell. 
 
D9  Am7  D7  G    Em   C      C/B        Am7  
For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly, 
 
      C      C/B     Am7     D7       G    Am7  G  D7 
More dearly than the spoken word can tell. 
 
 
D7    G               D7    Am7     G 
I've heard there's a wicked war a-blazing, 
 
D7        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. 
 
D7 G                D7       Am7       G 
I have no fear of death, it brings no sorrow; 
 
D7       G         G7                 C 
But how bitter will be this last farewell, 
 
 
Repeat Refrain: 
 
 
D7       G                 D7    Am7   G 
Though death and darkness gather all about me, 
 
D7  G             G7            C 
My ship be torn apart upon the seas, 
 
   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. 
 
D7    G                   D7    Am7     G 
And should I return safe home again to England, 
 
         G                G7                      C 
I shall watch the English mist roll through the dells, 
 
 
Repeat Refrain:
