Sail On

Chords and lyrics for Sail On by Lionel Richie

 
Sail  
C# 
on down  
F# 
the 
 
 
D#m 
line
 
‘Bout  
F# 
 
 
C# 
half a mile or so
And I don’t really wanna know
 
Where you’re  
D#m 
going
 
Maybe once or  
C# 
twice you see
 
Time after time I  
D#m 
tried 
 
to
D# 
Hold 
 
 
D#m 
on to what  
D# 
we 
 
got
 
But  
C# 
now you’re goin’
 
And I  
G# 
don’t 
 
mind
About the things you’re gonna say Lord
 
I gave all  
A#m 
my money and  
G# 
my 
 
time
 
I know  
A#m 
it’s a shame
 
But  
F# 
I’m giving you back your name, yeah yeah
 
Guess I’ll be on my  
C# 
way
G# 
I won’t be back  
C# 
to 
 
stay
 
I guess I’ll  
D#m 
move 
 
along
F# 
I’m looking  
C# 
for a good time

Sail on down the line

D#m 
Ain’t it funny how the time can  
C# 
go
 
All my friends say they told  
D#m 
me 
 
so
D# 
But it doesn’t matter
 
It was  
C# 
plain to see
 
That a  
A#m 
small town  
G# 
boy like me
 
Just wasn’t your  
F# 
cup of tea
C# 
I was wishful thinking
 
I  
G# 
gave you my  
A#m 
heart
 
And I tried  
F# 
to make you happy
 
And you gave me nothin’  
D#m 
in 
 
return
F# 
You 
 
 
D#m 
know it ain’t so  
G# 
hard to  
B 
say
 
"Would  
F# 
you 
 
 
G# 
please just go away?"
Yeah yeah

 
A#m 
I’ve thrown away the  
Fm 
blues
 
I’m tired  
A#m 
of bein’ used
 
I want  
D#m 
everyone to  
A#m 
know
 
I’m looking  
G# 
for 
 
 
Fm 
a good time, good time
 
G# 
Ooh sail  
D#m 
on 
 
honey
A#m 
Good times never  
G# 
felt 
 
 
Fm 
so 
 
good
 
Sail  
F# 
on 
 
honey
 
Good times never  
D#m 
felt so good
A#m 
Sail on  
Fm 
sugar
G# 
Good times never felt so good
