Lyrics and Music by David Coverdale, Adrian Vandenberg


Intro: :2/4: D#m7 | D#m7
       D#m | C#/F
       F# C#/F D#m7 C# | B Bsus2

       C# | B Bb
       D#m D#m7add11 | D#m7add11

       D#m | C#/F
       F# C#/F D#m7 C# | B Bsus2

       C# | B Bb
       D#m D#m7add11 | D#m6

       G#m | E/G# | F#/G# | B
       E/G# | F#sus4 F# | C# | C#

D#m      C#/F
Do you remember
F#  C#/F D#m7   C# B   Bsus2
Standing on the shore,
     C#
Your head in the clouds,
     B       Bb          D#m     D#m7add11
Your pockets filled with dreams.
D#m       C#/F
Bound for glory
       F# C#/F D#m7 C# B Bsus2
On the seven seas of life,
        C#       B     Bb       D#madd9
But the ocean is deeper than it seems.

D#m          C#/F
The wind was with you
         F#   C#/F   D#m7 C# B  Bsus2
When you left on the morning tide,
    C#
You set your sail
       B     Bb      D#m  D#m7add11 D#m6
For an island in the sun,
D#m      C#/F
On the horizon,
F#   C#/F D#m7 C# B Bsus2 C#
Dark clouds up ahead,
        B         Bb     D#m  D#m7add11
For the storm has just begun.

 G#m       E/G#
   Take me with you,
   F#/G#         B
   Take me far away,
 E/G#          F#sus4 F#      C#     /C# /C
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   Bbmadd9     C#
     Sail your ship
      D#sus4add9 Bbmadd9 C# D#sus4add9
     Across the water,
   Bbmadd9       C#
     Spread your wings
      D#sus4add9 Bbmadd9 C# D#sus4add9
     Across the sky.
   D#m7sus2   F#      G#6sus4
     Take the time to see
     D#m7sus2            F#        G#6sus4
     You’re the one, who holds the key,
   F#add9       G#6             D#sus2
     Or sailing ships will pass you by.

Instrumental: :2/4: D#m | C#/F
              F# C#/F D#m7 C# | B Bsus2

              C# | B Bb
              D#m D#m7add11 | D#m6

D#m         C#/F
You cry for mercy,
         F#    C#/F   D#m7 C#   B    Bsus2
When you think you’ve lost your way,
    C#
You drift alone,
   B        Bb      D#m   D#m7add11
If all your hope is gone.
    D#m                   C#/F
And find the strength and you will see
     F#  C#/F D#m7  C#   B    Bsus2 C#
That you controlled your destiny,
      B     Bb        D#madd9
After all is said and done.

 G#m          E/G#
   So take me with you,
   F#/G#         B
   Take me far away,
 E/G#          F#sus4 F#      C#     /C# /C
   And lead me to the distant shore.

Chorus:
   Bbmadd9     C#
     Sail your ship
      D#sus4add9 Bbmadd9 C# D#sus4add9
     Across the water,
   Bbmadd9       C#
     Spread your wings
      D#sus4add9 Bbmadd9 C# D#sus4add9
     Across the sky.
   D#m7sus2   F#      G#6sus4

     Or sailing ships will pass,
   F#/Bb     G#/C
     Sailing ships will pass you,
   F#/C#     G#/D#               D#sus2
     Sailing ships will pass you by…
