Intro: C, D, Fmaj7, C,G    Fmaj7= 033210

The continent of Atlantis was an island
which lay before the great flood
in the area we now call the Atlantic Ocean
C                        G
so great an area of land, that from her western 
shores, those beautiful sailors journeyed
to the South and the North Americas with ease
Fmaj7                             C  G
in their ships with painted sails
            C                                D
To the east, Africa was her neighbor across a short strait of sea miles
Fmaj7                                               C           G
The great Egyptian age is but a remnant of the Atlantian culture
The Antedeluvian kings colonized the world
All the gods who play in the mythological legends and all legends
Fmaj7                                 C  G
from all lands were from fair Atlantis
C                                                               D
Knowing her fate, Atlantis sent out ships to all corners of the earth
On board were the twelve: the poet, the physician, the farmer, the scientist,
    C                                 G
the magician, and the other so-called gods of our legends
C                                               D
Though gods they were and, as the elders of our time choose to remain blind
                          Fmaj7                             C
let us rejoice and let us sing and dance and ring in the new
Hail, Atlantis!
C                   D         Fmaj7           C           G
Way down, below the ocean, is where I want to be, she may be
