       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
Oh I'm sailing away, my own true love 
    Em      D/F#        G       C    G    G - G/F# 
I'm sailing away in the morning 
         Em(9)           Em(9)          C - C(9)   G   C   G   G - G/F# 
Is there something I can send you from across the sea 
         Em          D/F#    G       C    D/F#    G - C/G   G - G/F# 
From the place where I'll be landing 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
There's nothing you can send me, my own true love 
    Em      D/F#        G       C    G    G - G/F# 
There's nothing I'm wishing to be owning 
         Em          D/F#    G       C    D/F#    G - C/G   G - G/F# 
Just carry yourself back to me unspoiled 
       Em          D/F#    G       C    D/F#    G - C/G   G - G/F# 
From across that lonesome ocean 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
Oh, but I just thought you might want something fine 
    Em      D/F#        G       C    G    G - G/F# 
Maybe silver or of golden 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
Either from the mountains of Madrid 
         Em          D/F#    G       C    D/F#    G - C/G   G - G/F# 
Or from the coast of Barcelona 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
If I had the stars of the darkest night 
    Em      D/F#        G       C    G    G - G/F# 
And the diamonds from the deepest ocean 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
I'd forsake them all for your sweet kiss 
         Em          D/F#    G       C    D/F#    G - C/G   G - G/F# 
That's all I wish to be owning 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
Oh, I might be gone a long ol' time 
    Em      D/F#        G       C    G    G - G/F# 
And it's only that I'm asking 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
Is there something I can send you to remember me by 
         Em          D/F#    G       C    D/F#    G - C/G   G - G/F# 
To make your time more easy passing 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
How can, how can you ask me again 
    Em      D/F#        G       C    G    G - G/F# 
Well it only brings me sorrow 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
Oh, the same thing I would want today 
         Em          D/F#    G       C    D/F#    G - C/G   G - G/F# 
I would want again tomorrow 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
Oh, I got a letter on a lonesome day 
    Em      D/F#        G       C    G    G - G/F# 
It was from his ship a-sailing 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
Saying, I don't know when I'll be coming back again 
         Em          D/F#    G       C    D/F#    G - C/G   G - G/F# 
It depends on how I'm feeling 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
If you, my love, must think thataway 
    Em      D/F#        G       C    G    G - G/F# 
I'm sure your mind is a-roaming 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
I'm sure your thoughts are not with me 
         Em          D/F#    G       C    D/F#    G - C/G   G - G/F# 
But with the country where you're going 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
So take heed, take heed of the western wind 
    Em      D/F#        G       C    G    G - G/F# 
Take heed of stormy weather 
       Em(9)     Em(9)  C - C(9)  G     C   G    G - G/F# 
And yes, there is something you can send back to me 
         Em          D/F#    G       C    D/F#    G - C/G   G - G/F# 
Spanish boots of Spanish leather (end on last G.)
