CAPO: 5th Fret
 
 
INTRO: F Am G Em F  Am G F Em   Am G Em F  Am G Am
 
                     G             Em          F
There's a love in my life, neither mistress or wife 
        Am                 G              F   Em
And she waits for me every morning by the sea 
          Am           G              Em            F
Where the fishing hawk wheels and the sun warms the seals 
          Am                 G             Am
There she lays at her silent anchorage for me 
 
 
                    G               Em            F
She is fine, she is fleet, she will run, reach or beat 
       Am          G               F     Em
With a song in her rigging and her sails 
         Am     G             Em        F
And when day is done, we will lay-to as one 
    Am                       G             Am
And sleep 'neath the rolling rhythm of the stars 
 
 
CHORUS:
       F     Em          F       C
And we sail away, off to Jericho Bay
          Am          D7            G
Where the blue of the sea meets the sky 
        F             Em           F              C
And the song that she sings me, it brings me such peace 
         Am           D7        G
When the seas rise up angry and high 
        F                   C         Cmaj7   C
She's a friend of mine, The Minstrel 
 
 
          Am           G            Em        F
There are loons off to port and the porpoises sport 
       Am           G                  F     Em
In her wake, as she breaks the rolling main 
         Am              G              Em           F
And with the wind in her sails, we will run with the whales 
        Am                         G           Am
As they swim through their dark, diminishing domain 
 
 
CHORUS:
       F     Em          F       C
And we sail away, off to Jericho Bay
          Am          D7            G
Where the blue of the sea meets the sky
        F        Em           F              C
And the song she sings me, it brings me such peace 
         Am           D7        G
When the seas rise up angry and high 
        F                   C         Cmaj7   C
She's a friend of mine, The Minstrel
