Sail Away
David Gray

Capo 1
Strum: B   D DU UB DU U
       1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
[Bmadd11][F#m7+11]   [G]     [Em]    [D]     [G6]    [A7] 
   [F#m11]   [Aadd9][Dmaj7]
Intro:  [Bmadd11] x4
[Bmadd11]                [F#m7+11]
Sail away with me honey, I put my heart in your hands.
[Bmadd11]               [G]  [Em]   
Sail away with me honey now, now, now,
[Bmadd11]  [D]          [G]       [Em]
Sail      away with me, what will be will be,
[G6]             [A7]  [Em]
I wanna hold you now, now, now
[Dmaj7]              [F#m11]
Crazy skies all wild above me now
[Dmaj7]              [F#m11]
Winter howling at my face
[Dmaj7]              [F#m11]
And everything I held so dear
[Bmadd11]             [Aadd9]
Disappeared without a trace
[Dmaj7]              [F#m11]
Of all the times I've tasted love
[Dmaj7]              [F#m11]
Never knew quite what I had
[Dmaj7]              [F#m11]
Little darling, if you hear me now
[Bmadd11]            [Aadd9]
Never needed you so bad,
[G6]                    [Em]
Spinning round inside my head
[Dmaj7]              [F#m11]
I've been talking drunken gibberish
[Dmaj7]              [F#m11]
Falling in and out of bars,
[Dmaj7]              [F#m11]
Trying to get some explanation here
[Bmadd11]            [Aadd9]
For the way some people are
[G6]                    [Em (2 hold)]
How did it ever come so far.
