G                   D        
Long afloat on shipless oceans
G/C                       Em
I did all my best to smile
G                           D
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
G/C               Em 
Drew me loving to your isle
G 
And you sang
F
Sail to me
Em
Sail to me
             G
Let me enfold you
Em
Here I am
G           
Here I am
              D              G/C
Waiting to hold you, 

G                            D
Did I dream you dreamed about me?
G/C                   Em
Were you hare when i was fox?
G                               D
Now my foolish boat is leaning 
G/C                          Em
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,
G                     
For you sing,
F
"Touch me not, 
Em
touch me not, 
G
come back tomorrow
Em               
O my heart, 
G
O my heart 
D                     G/C          G
shies from the sorrow" 

Instrumental break: verse chords

G                   D
I am puzzled as the newborn child
G/C                Em
I am troubled at the tide
G                         D
Should I stand amid the breakers?
G/C                     Em
Should I lie with death my bride?
G                                                                              
Hear me sing,  
F
"Swim to me, 
Em
Swim to me, 
G
Let me enfold you

Em              G              D                        G/C               G
Here I am, Here I am, Waiting to hold you"
