Sail Me Away chords

Elton John

Key: 

verse 1 A When stars are born. Bm/A Are they cast out? E D A To wander cold and lonely lost in space. Cdim7 A loveless point of light Bm That can't return. Bm7 E Forever fixed within one place. verse 2 A Bm/A When love is lost and dreams are cast. E D A Like bruised and battered pieces left to die. Cdim7 When hands that reach out are betrayed. Bm Bm7 E How can my tortured soul survive? Bridge C#m F#m There's only one thing left. D E And that's the one thing that I needed most of all. C#m F#m But the freedom that I've gained Bm Bm/A G G/F# E Is the loss that led me aimless to the shore.
A C#m7 F#m F#m/E And I'm borne high on these waves. D A/C# E Swept by the wind and alone. A C#m7 D E Sail me away, carry me back to my home. D I'm tired, I've been torn. E/D C#7 C#7/E F#m A cruel wretched storm churns like a gale in my bones. F#m/E Bm Oh sail me away. D/E E Dadd2 Carry me back to my home.
verse 3 A These scars run deep. Bm/A E D A The future holds a hunger for an innocence that passed away. Cdim7 A My callous shadows mock. Bm Bm7 E And make it clear some things were not enough to make them stay. Bridge C#m F#m The moment time stands still D E Is the moment that the writing's on the walls. C#m F#m The words are clear as ringing bells Bm Bm/A G G/F# E That pride is present right before the fall.
A C#m7 F#m F#m/E And I'm borne high on these waves. D A/C# E Swept by the wind and alone. A C#m7 D E Oh, sail me away, carry me back to my home. D I'm tired, I've been torn. E/D C#7 C#7/E F#m A cruel wretched storm churns like a gail in my bones. F#m/E Bm Oh sail me away. D/E E Dadd2 Carry me back to my home. F#m/E Bm Sail me away! D/E E Dadd2 A Carry me back to my home!
