INTRO
| G  C/G | G C/G G    |


VERSE 1
       Em9             D7/F#   | G   C/G | G | 
Oh I'm sailin' away my own true love
          [ Em ]                              Dylan (accidentally) plays an Em here.
Em9       D7/F#      | G   C/G | G | 
I'm sailin' away in the morning
         Em                             C/G      | G   C/G | G |
Is there something I can send you from across the sea
         Em9        D7/F#   C/G G      D7/F# | G |
From the place that I'll be landing?


VERSE 2
            Em9                         D7/F#   | G   C/G | G | 
No, there's nothin' you can send me, my own true love
        Em9       D7/F#     | G   C/G | G | 
There's nothin' I wish to be ownin'
     Em                     C/G | G   C/G | G |
Just carry yourself back to me unspoiled
      Em9        D7/F#    C/G   G   D7/F# | G | % |
From across that lonesome ocean


VERSE 3
        Em9                      D7/F#        | G   C/G | G | 
Oh, but I just thought you might want something fine
        Em9    D7/F# | G   C/G | G | 
Made of silver or of golden
       Em                 C/G | G   C/G | G |
Either from the mountains of Madrid
            Em9      D7/F#   C/G   G   D7/F# | G | 
Or from the coast of Barce - lona


VERSE 4
            Em9                         D7/F#   | G   C/G | G | 
Oh, but if I had the stars from the darkest night
        Em9               D7/F# | G   C/G | G | 
And the diamonds from the deepest ocean
       Em                C/G       | G   C/G | G |
I'd forsake them all for your sweet kiss
           Em9     D7/F#         C/G   G   D7/F# | G | % |
For that's all I'm wishin' to be ownin'
     


VERSE 5
       Em9             D7/F#   | G   C/G | G | 
That I might be gone a long old time
         Em9  D7/F#   | G   C/G | G | 
And it's only that I'm askin'
         Em                            C/G     | G   C/G | G |
Is there something I can send you to remember me by
             Em9       D7/F# C/G   G   D7/F# | G |
To make your time more easy  passin'?


VERSE 6
        Em9              D7/F#  | G   C/G | G | 
Oh, how can, how can you ask me again
   Em9  D7/F#    | G   C/G | G | 
It only brings me sorrow
    Em                 C/G  | G   C/G | G |
The same thing I would want today
        Em9   D7/F#  C/G   G   D7/F# | G |
I would want again tomorrow


VERSE 7
   Em9                 D7/F#   | G   C/G | G | 
Oh I got a letter on a lonesome day
       Em9      D7/F# | G   C/G | G | 
It was from her ship a-sailin'
       Em                        C/G        | G   C/G | G |
Saying I don't know when I'll be comin' back again
     Em9      D7/F#   C/G   G   D7/F# | G |
It depends on how I'm feelin'


VERSE 8
   Em9                D7/F#       | G   C/G | G | 
If you, my love, must think that-a-way
    Em9       D7/F#  | G   C/G | G | 
I'm sure your mind is roamin'
    Em                     C/G    | G   C/G |
I'm sure your thoughts are not with me
             Em9        D7/F#        C/G   G   D7/F# | G | 
But with the country to where you're goin'


VERSE 9
        Em9                    D7/F#  | G   C/G | G | 
So take heed, take heed of the western wind
     Em9         D7/F#  | G   C/G | G | 
Take heed of the stormy weather
    Em                             C/G        | G   C/G | G |
And yes, there's something you can send back to me
        G     Em9    D7/F#      C/G   G   D7/F# | G |
Spanish boots o-o-of Spa-a-nish leather
