SOUTHERN CROSS
Jimmy Buffett
(Curtis/Curtis/Stills)
Album: Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays

Intro

Got out of (A) town on a (G) boat for the southern is(D)lands.
Sailing a (A) reach be(G)fore a followin' (D) sea. (A)
She was makin' for the (G) trades on the (D) outside, 
And the (A) downhill (G) run to Papeete (D) Bay. (A)
On this heading off the (G) wind lies the Marq(D)uesas.
We got (A) eighty feet of the (G) waterline.
(D) Nicely making (A) way.
In a noisy bar in (G) Avalon I tried to (D) call you.
But on a (A) midnight watch I (G) realized why (D) twice you ran a(A)way.

Think about
(G) Think about how (D) many times (G) I have (A) fallen,
(G) Spirits are (D) using me, (G) larger voices (A) callin'.
(G) What heaven (D) brought you and me (G) cannot be forgot(A)ten.

I have been a(D)round (G) the (A) world,
(D) Lookin' for that (G) woman, (A) girl,
Who (D) knows (G) love can en(A)dure.
And you know it (G) will. (D)  And you know it (A) will.

When you (A) see the Southern (G) Cross for the (D) first time,
You (A) understand now why you (G) came this (D) way. (A)
'Cause the truth you might be (G) runnin' from is so (D) small. 
But it's as (A) big as the pr(G)omise, the promise of a coming (D) day. (A)
So I'm sailing for to(G)morrow, my dreams are a (D) dyin'.
And my (A) love is an anchor tied to (G) you, (D) tied with a silver (A) chain.
I have my (G) ship and all her flags are a (D) flyin'
She is (A) all that I have (G) left and (D) music is her (A) name.

Think about
(G) Think about how (D) many times (G) I have (A) fallen,
(G) Spirits are (D) using me, (G) larger voices (A) callin'.
(G) What heaven (D) brought you and me (G) cannot be forgot(A)ten.

I have been a(D)round (G) the (A) world,
(D) Lookin' for that (G) woman, (A) girl,
Who (D) knows (G) love can en(A)dure.
And you know it (G) will. (D)  And you know it (A) will.

So we cheated and we (G) tried and we (D) tested
And we (A) never failed to (G) fail, it was the (D) easiest thing to (A) do.
You will sur(G)vive being (D) bested.
But somebody (A) strong comes along and (G) make me forget 
For(D)get about loving (A) you.
At the Southern Cross. (G) (D) (A) (G) (D)
