Anchor me, anchor me
A            G#m    D             C#m
As the compass turns and the glass it falls
A                  G#m    D                C#m
And the storm clouds roll, and the gulls they call

Anchor me, anchor me

A                  G#m    D           C#m
Let the salt spray lash the shivering skin
A                     G#m    D                C#m
Where the green waves crash and the whirlpools spin

Anchor me, anchor me

Bridge
C                  Bm     Bb                   A
Where the Banshees cry    and the bells they sound
F#m              A    C#m                Bm
When you lift me high, when you pull me down
                 D                       A
When you pull me down, when you pull me down
