...SAIL ON... by The Commodores
-------------..................

*from 'Midnight Magic' (1979)*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: C#)


Intro:

C, Dm, C

Verse 1:

C
 Sail on down the line,
         Dm
About a, half a mile or so.
Don't really wanna know,
C
 Where you're going.

C
 Maybe once or twice you see,
Dm
 Time after time I tried,
To hold on to what we got,
    C
But now you're going.

Chorus 1:

F            G
 And I don't mind,
          C             C/B   Am      C7
About the things you're gonna sail on,
F              G            C    C/B  Am, C7
 I give all my money and my time.
F              G
 I know it's a shame,
        C          C/B       Am
But I'm giving you back your name,
G      F
 Yeah, yeah.

Bridge 1:

     F       C     Dm
Yes, I'll be on my way,
  F        C       Dm
I won't be back to stay.
  F          C      Dm
I guess I'll move a-long,
                  C      G
I'm looking for a good...time.

Interlude:

C, Dm, C

Verse 2:

C
 Sail on down the line, it's,
Dm
 Funny how the time can go,
Friends says they told me so,
       C
But it doesn't matter.

C
 It was plain to see,
     Dm
That a small town boy like me,
Just wasn't your cup of tea,
      C
I was wishful thinking.

Chorus 2:

F              G
 I gave you my heart,
      C        C/B      Am     C7
And I tried to make you happy,
F                G             C    C/B  Am
 And you gave me nothing in re-turn.
C7           F                G
 You know it ain't so hard to say;
          C           C/B  Am
Would you please just go a-way...
G      F
 Yeah, yeah.

Bridge 2:

     F        C      Dm
I've thrown away the blues,
    F        C     Dm
I'm tired of being used.
       F     C      Dm
I want every-one to know,
                  C      G
I'm looking for a good...time.
Bb    F     G
 Good time...

Coda:

Fmaj7     Em7
 Sail on, honey,
Fmaj7              Em7     Dm7
 Good times, never felt so good.

Fmaj7     Em7
 Sail on, honey,
Fmaj7              Em7     Dm7
 Good times, never felt so good.

(Repeat to Fade)
