Like a ship on the see
Em  D   G          Em D G
    Her love rolls over me

like a ship on the sea

Go away, go away
Em  D  G  . . Em D | G . .
Let me be
            
Like a weeping willow tree
Her love hangs over me
Like a weeping willow tree
Her love hangs over me

Go away, go away
Let me be
            
Bb                              F        C
Standin' on the white cliffs of Dover
C         G           D
  Lookin' out into space
Bb         F                C
   Another channel to cross over
   Cm            D7
another dream to chase

The night is dark and dreary
The wind is howling loud
Your heart is hangin' heavy
When your sweet love ain't around
            
Like a leaf on a tree
her love is shakin' me
Like a leaf on a tree
her love is shakin' me

Go away, go away
       Em  D  G  Em   D G    Em D   G
Let me be
      [Oh, to be like a ship on the sea] 
            
       D     G    F C
Like a leaf, like a ship
       Em  D  G  Em   D G    Em D   G
on the sea
      [Oh, to be like a ship on the sea]
