39 Guitar Tablature
(Roger Taylor from Queen)

       D7                    Em
In the year of '39 assembled here the Volunteers
       C         G          D7
In the days when lands were few
         Em          G            C                
Here the ship sailed out into the blue and sunny morn
    G        D7         G
The sweetest sight ever seen.

And the night followed day
And the story tellers day
         Em                Am
That the score brave souls inside
    G                        D7
For many a lonely day sailed across the milky seas
             C           D7            G       D7
Ne'er looked back, never feared, never cried.

          G                          C          G
Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
          G               D7
Don't you hear me calling you
           G       Hm     Em
Write your letters in the sand
D6      C     Bm        Am
For the day I take your hand
       Bm            D7            G
In the land that our grandchildren knew. 

In the year of '39 came a ship in from the blue
The volunteers came home that day
And they bring good news of a world so newly born
Though their hearts so heavily weigh
For the earth is old and grey, to a new home we'll away
But my love this cannot be
For so many years have gone though I'm older but a year
Your mother's eyes in your eyes cry to me.

Don't you hear my call though you're many years away
Don't you hear me calling you
All the letters in the sand cannot heal me like your hand 

For my life
Still ahead
Pity Me.

Ebdim: Eb A Eb F#
