Guitar tabs with lyrics

"The voyage of the Moon", by Donovan
------------------------

Standard tuning, no capo is used for this beautiful song.
So quiet, so relaxing ... Plus, it's really easy to play ;) !

The same piece is repeated all through the song : play it once
entirely for the introduction, then sing with it. Pay attention
to the second part, as you'll have to sing one note differently.

To introduce, play it once, entirely. At the end of each verse,
you'll have to play again too. Repeat first verse to finish.
As usual, listen to the record to get everything.

 Her ropes that limply run,             my love

 O may it be in mine,                   my love,

 The ships will genlty land,            my love. (*)

    And  with a sail  of      gauze,    my love,
   -I see her pearly mast,              my love
    Down to the carved prow,            my love,
   -Though many are their kind,         my love,
    When men will proudly rise,         my love,

    Fair folk will meet them there,     my love,

 And seems to    slightly       pause    upon     her
-Far from her seashell past     and gently
 Down to her mermaid prow       and softly
-Though all need but one wind   to make their
 And board to sail the skies    moonships from
-As each the other meets        will smile and
 With golden flowing hair       and great will
