Clear Water by Fairport Convention

Clear Water chords by Fairport Convention

Guitar chords with lyrics

Verse:

N.C.
I want clear water from here to the horizon


N.C.
I want some calm seas for the journey still ahead


N.C.
Fair weather as we head for the skyline


N.C.
A clear sky in the morning and every sunset red


Verse:

    F   C      G        Am
I want clear water as we sail out to the head


F       Em     Dm       G
All I want to hear is the ripple from the bow


F      C      G        Am
Let us be at ease now and know our true position


    F       C      G         C
Like a compass to the star, like a team hooked to the plough


Verse:

  F              Em
And as for all the history, it's best it's left unwritten


Dm     C      Dm        G
Few would believe if we told all we have seen


F     C      G      Am
Comedy and tragedy have come along unbidden


   F        C         G     C
They are the port and starboard that we sail in between


Verse:

    F   C     G       Am
I want clear water for each new destination


  F          Em      Dm       G
And if the storm should break we will take it in our stride


  F      C        G         Am
We rode out the tempest when the clouded stars were hidden


    F       C       G      C
And the rising of the moon proved to be a fickle guide


Verse:

  F               Em
And if we hear the timbers creak, we'll be give and take


Dm       C    Dm        G
Voices from outside, we know our craft is strong


  F       C       G      Am
As long as we can speak without raising our voices


  F      C        G        C
The music of the storm is in the guarding of the song


Bridge:

                 G
At night upon the deck I want to feel the salty spray


   F               G
Like warm tears on my face for the passing of the day


 F                Em
I watch the wheeling star 'til the light breaks in the east


Dm             G
May the journey never end, let us be at peace


Instrumental:
F C G Am F Em Dm G
F C G Am  F C G C

Verse:

    F   C     G       Am
I want clear water from here to the horizon


F         Em       Dm        G
Maybe scarred and feathered, but who'd say we were wrong


  F        C      G        Am
The journey not the goal was the only thing that mattered


     F           C          G      C
While the wounds you thought had healed can still be opened by a song


Verse:

    F   C     G       Am
I want clear water from here to the horizon


      F  Em      Dm       G
I want some calm seas for the journey still ahead


F  C       G      Am
Fair weather as we head for the skyline


F        C      G      C
Clear sky in the morning and every sunset red


 F        C      G      C
A clear sky in the morning and every sunset red
