Eb
Eb
We were born before the wind
Eb
Also younger than the sun
Bb
'Ere the bonny boat was won
Bb Eb
As we sailed into the mystic
Eb
Hark, now, hear the sailor's cry
Eb
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Bb
Let your soul and spirit fly
Bb Eb
Into the mystic.
Gm Ab Eb
When that foghorn blows, I will be comin' home, Mmm hmm hm
Gm Ab Bb
When that foghorn blows, I wanna hear it, I don't have to fear it
Bb Eb
And I wanna rock you gypsy soul
Eb
Just like way back in the days of old
Bb
And magnificently we will float
Bb Eb
Into the mystic
{TWO-SAX SOLO} Eb ... Bb ... Eb
Gm Am Eb
When that foghorn blows, you know I will be comin' home
Gm Ab Bb
And when that foghorn whistle blows, I've gotta hear it, I don't have
to fear it
Eb
And I wanna rock your gypsy soul
Eb
Just like way back in the days of old
Bb
And together we will float
Bb Eb
Into the mystic ............... Come on girl!
{TWO-SAX SOLO} Eb ... Bb ... Eb
Eb Bb Eb
........ Too late to stop now-o-ow!...... {THE END}

NOTES
~~~~~
If playing the C, G, Em, F shapes with a capo, the fills become easier to play.
For example the intro can be played by playing the C-shape Eb major and hammer-
ing onto the 4th string (D string), then using the 3rd fret on the same string
to play the final note of the fill. I personally tend to use the 2nd and 3rd
frets on the treble-e string (string 1) to play the fill leading into the lines
"When that foghorn blows...". Experiment with it.
As with nearly all of Van's songs, the timing of the lyrics seems free-form and
doesn't tie in with obvious beats in the rhythm. What's important is that you
sing a word when you feel it's right, so don't worry if you end up playing the
chord above one word when you're singing another. You will probably want to
add a few treble notes to some of the chords to match the original tune
(especially the G minor chords). Unfortunately, most of us don't have two sax
players on hand when we need them, so those gorgeous sax solos will be missing.
That's life I'm afraid.
Ryan.
