INTRO:  G,  C,  G,  C,   F,  C,  G,  C,   C


C Em F CHave you stood by the ocean, on a diamond-hard morning
G Dm C GAnd felt the hor-izon stir deep in your soul
C Em F CWatched the wake of a steamer as it cut through blue water
Em Dm G C (*)And been gripped by a fever you just can't con-trol
C Em F COh to throw off the shackles and fly with the seagulls
Em Dm C G (*)To where green waves tumble before a driving sea wind
C Em F COr to lie on the decking on a warm summer's evening
Em Dm C G CWatch the red sun fall burning, be-neath the earth's rim
CHORUS:
C Em F GBut to every sailor, comes time to drop anchor
C Em F GHaul in the sails, and make the lines fast
C G F GYou deep water dreamer, your journey is over
C G F *You're safe in the harbour at last
C G F *You're safe in the harbour at last

C Em F CSome men are sailors, but most are just dreamers
G Dm C GHeld fast by the anchors they forge in their minds
C Em F CWho in ther hearts know they'll never sail over deep water
Em Dm G C (*)To search for a treasure they're a-fraid they won't find
C Em F CSo in sheltered harbours, they cling to their anchors
Em Dm C G (*)Bank down their boilers and shut down their steam
C Em F CAnd wait for the sailors to re-turn with bright treasures
Em Dm C G CThat will fan the dull embers and fire up their dreams
CHORUS:
C Em F GBut to every sailor, comes time to drop anchor
C Em F GHaul in the sails, and make the lines fast
C G F GYou deep water dreamer, your journey is over
C G F *You're safe in the harbour at last
C G F *You're safe in the harbour at last
C Em F CAnd some men are schemers who laugh at the dreamers
G Dm C GTake the gold from the sailors and turn it to dross
C Em F CThey're men in a prison, they're men without vision
Em Dm G C (*)Whose only hor-izon is profit and loss
C Em F CSo when storm clouds come sailing a-cross your blue ocean
Em Dm C G (*)Hold fast to your dreaming for all that your're worth
C Em F CFor as long as there's dreamers, there will always be sailors
Em Dm C G CBringing back their bright treasures from the corners of earth
