    G    Em  C  D7         G    Em   C     D7          G  B7  Em
Somewhere       beyond the sea   Somewhere waiting for me        
D7       G         Em     C     E7  Am
My lover stands on golden sands      
    D7     A     Em    C       A7  D  D7
And watches the  ships that go sailing

    G    Em  C  D7         G   Em     C     D7           G  B7  Em
Somewhere       beyond the sea  She's there watching for me       
D7         G        Em       C    E7  Am
If I could fly like birds on high      
     D7          A     Em   C      Am7  D7  Gm7
Then straight to her   arms I'd go sail     ing

Gb7    B   Ab    E6  Gb7      B    Ab       E6   Gb7        B
   Its far           beyond a star     it's near beyond the moon     
A7  D    Bm  G  A7       D    Bm     Em         A7            D   D7 Bm
  I know        beyond a doubt,   my heart will lead me there soon

Verse 3:
D7     G    Em  C  D7         G     Em      C    D7        G    B7 Em
 We'll meet        beyond the shore,  we'll kiss just as before      
D7          G     Em      C   E7  Am
Happy we'll be beyond the sea     
    D7    A    Em    C       A7   D7  G
And never a    gain, I'll go sail     ing.

    -2 Not sure how anyone could think that the key as written is correct. It’s definitely in F as Bobby sings it. Unless there’s another version I don’t know about…

  3. Thanks for this,
    Would there be any chance for the Roger Kellaway “Remembering you”
