Capo 2

G        Em             C              G
North by north— lest we have to settle down
G       Em              C            G
we can sail without the wind in this town
G           Em           C      G
Things that London never saw
G         Em              C   G
Northern winters start to thaw;
   Em          C        
To islands on the sea,
G           C
lands I’ve never seen,
G               Em     C      G
things will get calmer—follow me.


Am         G6               C
You said a long long time ago
         G                     Am
you were happy being someone
Am       G6                C
Let's go far far far from home
         G
I'll be glad to be with someone


Am, Em, G (x2)


G           Em       C             G
Land pneumonia, your engines in repair;
G           Em       C               G
plant begonias, and orchids in your hair.
G               Em      C       G
Continents all made of clay
G            Em         C
Dreamers leaving every day
     Em          C        
To islands on the sea,
G           C
lands I’ve never seen,
G               Em     C      G
things will get calmer—follow me.


G            Em            C            G
Someone told me you had oceans in your eyes
G            Em         C        G
Cold as shadows over European skies
G         Em      C       G
Coasting out the shallow day
G           Em       C      G
Leaving London in decay
      Em          C        
To islands on the sea,
G           C
lands I’ve never seen,
G               Em     C      G
things will get calmer—follow me.
