Capo 1

Intro G
                  G                               D7                  G
There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbor
                               G7               C
tomorrow for old England she sails
       Am                                              C
far away from your land of endless sunshine
            Am7                                    D7
to my land full of rainy skies and gales
      G                   D7                        G
and I shall be on aboard that ship tomorrow
                                           G7                C
though my heart is full of tears at this farewell

Chorus:
Am   Bm D   G       Em   Am                        D7
For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
            Am7                    D7                    G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Am Bm  D   G        Em   Am                        D7
for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
           Am7                     D7                    G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell

Verse#2
G                             D7                   G
I heard there's a wicked war a blazing
                                      G7                C
and the taste of war I know so very well
           Am                                         C
Even now I see that foreign flag a raising
           Am7                                      D7
their guns on fire as we sailed into hell
    G                       D7                         G
I have no fear of death it brings no sorrow
                                        G7           C
but how bitter will be this last farewell

Chorus:
Am  Bm D    G       Em    Am                     D7
For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
           Am7                 D7                     G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Am Bm D    G        Em    Am                     D7
for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
            Am7                 D7                     G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell

Verse#3:
G                                              D7                   G
Though death and darkness gather all about me
                                  G7                    G
and my ship be torn apart upon the sea
            Am                                                    C
I shall smell again the fragrance of these islands
             Am7                                                       D7
in the heaving waves that brought me once to thee
          G                             D7                    G
and should I return safe home again to England
                                           G7                           C
I shall watch the English mist roll through the dale

Chorus:
Am Bm  D    G       Em   Am                           D7
For you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
           Am7                    D7                     G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
Am Bm  D   G      Em    Am                           D7
for you are beautiful and I have loved you dearly
            Am7                   D7                     G
more dearly than the spoken word can tell
