[G]    [D]    [Em]    [C]    [G]    [D]    [C]    [G]    
[G]    [D]    [Em]    [C]    [Cmaj7]    [D]    [G]    
In the [D]year of thirty-nine
Assembled [Em]here the volunteers
In the [C]days when [G]lands were [D]few  
And the [Em]ship sailed [Em7]out    
into the [C]blue and sunny mornin'
The [Dsus4]sweetest [D]sight ever [G]seen

And the [D]night followed day
And the [B7]story tellers say
That the [Em]score brave souls in[Am]side   
For [G]many a lonely day
Sailed a[D]cross the milky seas
[C]Never looked [Em]back [C]never [D]feared [C]never [G]cried[D]    

Don't you [G]hear my call
Though you're [C]many years a[G]way  
Don't you hear me [C]call[G]ing [Dsus4]you      [D]    
Write your [G]letters [B7]in the [Em]sand   
For the [C]day I'll [G]take your [Am]hand   
In the [G]land that our [D]grand-children [G]knew

In the [D]year of thirty-nine
Came a[Em] ship in from the blue
The volun[C]teers came [G]home that [D]day  
And they [Em]bring good [Em7]news    
Of a [C]world so newly born
Though their [Dsus4]hearts so [D]heavily [G]weigh

For the [D]earth is old and grey
Little [B7]darlin' well away
But my [Em]love this cannot [Am]be   
Oh, so [G]many years have gone
Though I'm [D]older than a year
[C]Your mothers [Em]eyes [C]from your [D]eyes [C]cry to [G]me  [D]    

Don't you [G]hear my call
Though you're [C]many years a[G]way  
Don't you hear me [C]call[G]ing [Dsus4]you      [D]    
Write your [G]letters [B7]in the [Em]sand   
For the [C]day I'll [G]take your [Am]hand   
In the [G]land that our [D]grand-children [G]knew

Don't you [G]hear my call
Though you're [C]many years a[G]way  
Don't you hear me [C]call[G]ing [Dsus4]you      [D]    
All your [G]letters [B7]in the [Em]sand   
Cannot [C]heal me [G]like your [Am]hand   
For my [G]life still a[D]head pity [G]me  

[G]    [D]    [Em]    [C]    [G]    [D]    [C]    [G]    
[G]    [D]    [Em]    [C]    [Cmaj7]    [D]    [G]
