G                 Am
I am told that my life is a clipper
F          C                G
The sea of time has tossed about
G                       Am
And I know that there's only one skipper
F       C                 G
Who can guide that ship about
Em                          D
Do the wakening eyes of the wondering soul
F       C               G
See within and then without
G            Am
Silently the truth speaks more loudly
F         C             G
Than what falls from my mouth
G                       Am
Seems my dreams are the wings of a spirit
F           C                    G
This vessel sails can't fill without
G                        Am
From it's wind comes the light of inspiration
F       C           G
And the darkness of doubt
Em                       D
Gales of anger that wane into the calm.
F              C            G
Please take me drifting far away
G                   Am
From the  wordy and worldly explanation
F       C             G
Of the space we call today.
     Bm
Sail away
F         C        G
Sail away from the shore.
G     Em    C         D            G
Situations, weigh the anchor once more.
     Bm
Sail away
F         C        G
Sail away from the shore.
G     Em    C         D            G
Situations, weigh the anchor once more
