INTRO: in G

Verse#1:
G          C                    G            C      G
There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbor
C                C7           F
tomorrow for ol' England she sails
     Dm             F               Dm       F
far away from your land of endless sunshine
       Dm          F                G
to my land full of rainy skies and gales
    C             G                C        G
and I shall be on board that ship tomorrow
C                           C7              F
though my heart is full of tears at this farewell

Chorus:
Dm   G      C     Am        Dm             G7
For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
      Dm              G7              C
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Dm   G      C     Am        Dm             G7
for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
      Dm              G7              C
more dearly than the spoken word can tell

Verse#2
G  C               G            C       G
I heard there's a wicked war a blazing
         C             C7           F
and the taste of war I know so very well
   Dm             F               Dm       F
Even no I see that foreign flag a raising
       Dm          F                G
their guns on fire as we sailed into hell
    C             G                   C        G
I have no fear of death it brings no sorrow
C                           C7    F
but how bitter will be this last farewell

Chorus:
Dm   G      C     Am        Dm             G7
For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
      Dm              G7              C
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Dm   G      C    Am          Dm            G7
for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
      Dm              G7              C
more dearly than the spoken word can tell

Verse#3:
G      C                  G          C         G
Though death and darkness gather all about me
         C           C7            F
and my ship be torn apart upon the sea
        Dm               F                 Dm       F
I shall smell again the fragrance of these islands
       Dm                 F                  G
in the heaving waves that brought me once to thee
     C                   G              C        G
and should I return safe home again to England
C                         C7                    F
I shall watch the English mist roll through the dale

Chorus:
Dm   G      C     Am        Dm             G7
For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
      Dm              G7              C
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Dm   G      C    Am          Dm            G7
for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
      Dm              G7              C
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
