Key: Em
  D  A   G         Em 
 
Em                        Am 
If you smile at me I will understand 
                         Em 
'Cause that is something everybody everywhere does 
       Am 
In the same language 
      Em                                         Am 
I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side 
                 Em 
There's just one thing I've got to know, 
                Am      Em        Am 
Can you tell me please, who won 
          Em 
Say can I have some of your purple berries 
               Am              Em 
Yes, I've been eating them for six or seven weeks now, 
Am 
Haven't got sick once 
                 Em           Am 
Probably keep us both alive 
 
D  A  G 
 
Em                        D A  D 
Wooden ships on the water very free and easy 
Em                       D     A  D 
You know the way it's supposed to be 
Em                              D   A  D 
Silver people on the shoreline, let us be 
              C             Em 
Talking about very free and easy 
 
Jam over Em > Am 
 
D 
 
Em                    D     A   D 
Horror grips us as we watch you die 
Em                         D A       D 
All we can do is echo your anguished cries 
Em                 D  A     D 
Stare as all human feelings die 
       C                  Em 
We are leaving, you don't need us 
 
Jam over Em > Am 
 
D 
 
Em                      D  A   D 
Go take a sister, then, by the hand 
Em                      D  A    D 
Lead her away from this foreign land 
Em                       D     A D 
Far away, where we might laugh a-gain 
       C                  Em 
We are leaving, you don't need us 
 
           Em        Am 
And it's a fair wind blowing 
                Em                       Am 
Warm out of the south over my shoulder 
           Em                    Am 
Guess I'll set a course and go
