Southern Cross
Welcome to the Community!

An interesting song about (I think) seeking, priorities in life and relationships and the watery journey of it all.

A                    G                    D
Got outta town on a boat going to southern islands
A                  G                  D
Sailing a reach before a a following sea
A                       G               D
She was making for the trades on the outside
A                G           D
And the downhill run to Paapete
A                        G                 D
Off this wind on this heading lie the Marqueses
A                             G        D    Bm     A
We got eighty feet of the waterline nicely making way
A                     G                  D
In a noisy bar in Avalon I tried to call you
A                         G              D      Bm     A
But on a midnight watch I realized why twice you ran away
Think about
  G               D          G        A
Think about how many times I have fallen
  G               D          G        A
Spirits are using me larger voices calling
  G                  D          G           A
What heaven brought you and me cannot be forgotten
 D              G         A
I have been around the world
 D               G        A
Looking for that woman girl
 D              G         A
Who knows love cant ignore
A                    G             D
And you know it will
A                    G             D
And you know it will
  A                       G                   D
When you see the Southern Cross for the first time
  A                  G               D
You understand now why you came this way
 A                          G                  D
Cause the truth you might be runnin from is so small
 A                       G
But its as big as the promise
      D            Bm     A
The promise of a coming day

So Im sailing for tommorrow my dreams are a dying
And my love is an anchor tied to you
Tied with a silver chain
I have my ship and all her flags are a flying
She is all that I have left
And music is her name

(Repeat chorus)

So we cheated and we lied and we tested
And we never failed to fail
It was the easiest thing to do
You will suvive being bested
Somebody fine will come along
Make me forget about losing you

In the southern cross............
