Words & Music by Chris de Burgh

         F                                F/A
Lady love, go back to sleep,
              Bb                          F
Dry the tears from your eyes,
         Dm                         Am
But I cannot stay with thee
Until the morning,
C7sus4 - C            Bbmaj7
_________For the dawn is breaking,
             Dm         C6          Am
And my ship is waiting for me,
And I must go,
But I'll be back, yes,
     Bb                      Csus4
Before this year is over;

C11      F                           F/A
So we sailed across the sea,
Till we found America,
'Round the Cape of Storms
We set our sails for home,
And when the sea was roaring
And the Lord I called
To help my drowning men,
I saw the light, yes, the candle in your window...

C      F         Am               Bb
And I have brought you silver,
        F           Am                 Bb  
And I have brought you gold,
          F        C/E            Bb/D               F/C - Csus4
And spices from the Indies__ in the hold;
C               F         Am       Bb
I've seen ships on the horizon,
                F               Am      Bb
That I'd swear were going down,
           F     C/E            Bb/D
But now I know for certain,
                          F/C - Csus4
The world is round,
C         Bb  C11         C              F - C - Bb - F - C - Bb - Gm7 - C - Gm7
I have seen, ___my eyes have seen.

C        F          Am  Bb  
One day says Galileo,
         F       Am              Bb
A man will reach the sky,
        F           C/E                Bb/D
And see the world completely,
               F/C - Csus4
From outside,
C      F        Am                 Bb
And gazing down from yonder,
                F     Am                Bb
On a world of blue and green,
         F               C/E        Bb/D
He'll say with eyes of wonder,
           F/C  Csus4  C          Bb
I have seen,______ I have seen,
C11  C            F    Am7 - Bb - F - C/E - Bb - F/C
My eyes have seen.
C        Bb
I have seen,
C11                  F     Fsus4 - F
My eyes have seen.
