Sail Away Chords

   
...SAIL AWAY... by Randy Newman
---------------................

*from 'Sail Away' (1972)*


*CAPO 3rd FRET*

(Original Key: F)


Verse 1:

D     Bm7               E7sus
 In A-merica you'll get food to eat.
A7
 Won't have to run through the jungle,
    D
And scuff up your feet.
D            Bm7
 You'll just sing about Jesus,
          E7sus
And drink wine all day;
A7                            D
 It's great to be an American.


D         Bm7
 Ain't no lions or tigers,
         E7sus
Ain't no mamba snake,
A7
 Just the sweet watermelon,
        D
And the buckwheat cake.
Bm7
 Everybody is as happy,
     E7sus
As a man can be,
A7
 Climb aboard little wog;
       D
Sail a-way with me.

Chorus 1:

       D    Dsus
Sail a-way,
       G    Gsus4
Sail a-way,
        D                Bm7
We will cross the mighty ocean,
                E7   G/A
Into Charleston Bay.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/randy_newman/sail_away_crd.html ]
       D    Dsus
Sail a-way,
       G    Gsus4
Sail a-way,
        D         Bm7    E7
We will cross the mighty ocean,
     G/A        D   Bm7  E7sus
Into Charleston Bay.

Verse 2:

D     Bm7          E7sus
 In A-merica every man is free,
A7
 To take care of his home,
        D
And his family.
D             Bm7
 You'll be as happy,
                 E7sus
As a monkey in a monkey tree;
A7                D
 You're all gonna be an American.
D
 Be an American.

Chorus 2:

       D    Dsus
Sail a-way,
       G    Gsus4
Sail a-way,
        D                Bm7
We will cross the mighty ocean,
                E7   G/A
Into Charleston Bay.

       D    Dsus
Sail a-way,
       G    Gsus4
Sail a-way,
        D         Bm7    E7
We will cross the mighty ocean,
     G/A        D   Bm7  E7sus
Into Charleston Bay.
