Chris De Burgh - Lonely Sky
 
 
CAPO: 5th Fret
 
 
INTRO: Cadd9 C Am Dm G Cadd9 C
 
     C 
That cold North wind they call "La Bise"
   E7 
Is swirling 'round about my knees
Am               Dm              G
Trees are crying leaves into the river
    C 
I'm huddled in this French cafe
   E7 
I never thought I'd see the day
     Am                Dm              G
When winter's here and summer's nearly over


         F                        G
Even the birds have packed up and gone
               C               F
They're flying south with this song
       C                 F      
And my love, she too has gone
           G
She had to fly, take care
 
 
CHORUS: 
            C           Am
It's such a lonely sky
                                      Dm               G
They'll trap your wings, my love, and hold your flight
                                    C         Am
They'll build a cage and steal your only sky
                                  Dm
Fly away, fly to me, fly when the wind is high
    G                          C            Am  Dm  G  C
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky
 
 
    C 
The old cathedral lights are low
E7 
She and I, we'd often go there
Am            Dm                 G
To admire and sometimes kneel in prayer
C 
Lords and ladies lying in stone
E7 
Hand in hand from long ago
Am                     Dm                    G
Though their hands are cold, their love's forever


         F                     G
Even the choir rehearses those songs
    C                F
For Christmas is not long
       C            F      
And we may sing our song
           G
She had to fly, out there
 
 
CHORUS:   (# fade towards end #)
            C           Am
It's such a lonely sky
                                      Dm                G
They'll trap your wings, my love, and hold your flight
                                    C         Am
They'll build a cage and steal your only sky
                                  Dm
Fly away, fly to me, fly when the wind is high
    G                          C           Am
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky
                                Dm
Fly away, fly to me, and if you need my love
    G                          C           Am
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky
                        Dm
I'm coming in with the dawn____
    G                          C           Am
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky
                    Dm
On the wings of the morn____
    G                          C           Am
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky
                         Dm
Above the world we'll be flying____
    G                          C           Am
I'm sailing beside you in your lonely sky
