The Last Farewell

Song Author Roger Whittaker og R.A. Webster Performer: Roger Whittaker Submitted by: jonagust


[D7]There's a [G]ship lies rigged and [D7]ready [Am7]in the h[G]arbor;
[D7]Tom   [G]orrow for old [G7]England she [C]sails,
Far a[Am]way from your l[C]and of [C/B]endless s[Am]unshine,[Am7]    
To my l[Am]and    [Am+7]full of r[Am7]ainy     [Am7/G]skies and g[D7]ales.
And [G]I shall be ab[D7]oard that ship tomo[G]rrow,
Though my he[G]art is full of t[G7]ears at this farew[C]ell;


[D9]For    [Am7]you a    [D7]re b   [G]eauti[Em]ful, [C]I have [C/B]loved you d[Am7]early,
More d[C]early t[C/B]han the [Am7]spoken w[D7]ord can t[G]ell. [Am7]    [G]    
[D9]For    [Am7]you a    [D7]re b   [G]eauti[Em]ful, [C]I have [C/B]loved you d[Am7]early,
More d[C]early t[C/B]han the [Am7]spoken w[D7]ord can t[G]ell. [Am7]    [G]    [D7]    


[D7]I've h[G]eard there's a w[D7]icked [Am7]war a-bl[G]azing,
[D7]And the ta[G]ste of war I k[G7]now so very [C]well;
Even [Am]now I see the f[C]oreign [C/B]flag a-r[Am]aising, [Am7]    
Their g[Am]uns on f[Am+7]ire as [Am7]we sail [Am7/G]into he      [D7]ll.   
[D7]I h   [G]ave no fear of de[D7]ath, it b[Am7]rings no s[G]orrow;
[D7]But how b[G]itter will[G7] be this last farew[C]ell,


[D9]For    [Am7]you a    [D7]re b   [G]eauti[Em]ful, [C]I have [C/B]loved you d[Am7]early,
More d[C]early t[C/B]han the [Am7]spoken w[D7]ord can t[G]ell. [Am7]    [G]    
[D9]For    [Am7]you a    [D7]re b   [G]eauti[Em]ful, [C]I have [C/B]loved you d[Am7]early,
More d[C]early t[C/B]han the [Am7]spoken w[D7]ord can t[G]ell. [Am7]    [G]    [D7]    


[D7]Though de[G]ath and darkness g[D7]ather [Am7]all ab[G]out me,
[D7]My s   [G]hip be torn ap[G7]art upon the s[C]eas,
I s[Am]hall smell again the fr[C]agrance[C/B] of these [Am]islands [Am7]    
And the h[Am]eaving w[Am+7]aves that br[Am7]ought me[Am7/G] once to t[D7]hee.   
[D7]And sh[G]ould I return safe h[D7]ome ag[Am7]ain to E[G]ngland,
I shall w[G]atch the English [G7]mist roll through the de[C]lls,


[D9]For    [Am7]you a    [D7]re b   [G]eauti[Em]ful, [C]I have [C/B]loved you d[Am7]early,
More d[C]early t[C/B]han the [Am7]spoken w[D7]ord can t[G]ell. [Am7]    [G]    
[D9]For    [Am7]you a    [D7]re b   [G]eauti[Em]ful, [C]I have [C/B]loved you d[Am7]early,
More d[C]early t[C/B]han the [Am7]spoken w[D7]ord can t[G]ell. [Am7]    [G]    [D7]    

There's a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbor;
Tomorrow for old England she sails,
Far away from your land of endless sunshine,
To my land full of rainy skies and gales.
And I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow,
Though my heart is full of tears at this farewell;

For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly,
More dearly than the spoken word can tell.
For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly,
More dearly than the spoken word can tell.

I've heard there's a wicked war a-blazing,
And the taste of war I know so very well;
Even now I see the foreign flag a-raising,
Their guns on fire as we sail into hell.
I have no fear of death, it brings no sorrow;
But how bitter will be this last farewell,

For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly,
More dearly than the spoken word can tell.
For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly,
More dearly than the spoken word can tell.

Though death and darkness gather all about me,
My ship be torn apart upon the seas,
I shall smell again the fragrance of these islands
And the heaving waves that brought me once to thee.
And should I return safe home again to England,
I shall watch the English mist roll through the dells,

For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly,
More dearly than the spoken word can tell.
For you are beautiful, I have loved you dearly,
More dearly than the spoken word can tell.
