[C] My [G7] ship set [C] sail to [F] Bluebird [C] Island
And slowly [G7] drifted out to [C] sea
Her [G7] silver [C] sails to [F] cross the [C] ocean
My lover's [G7] lonely heart set [C] free.
[C] Then out a-[F] cross the [C] waves, the [G7] bluebirds [C] came one day
Out [G7] o'er the silver sea, your [C] message brought to me
To [D] sail my ship of love along the [G7] moonlit bay
And [D] anchor in the harbor of your [G7] heart.
[NC] The trade winds [C] there on [F] Bluebird [C] Island
Soon dried her [G7] lonely tears a-[C] way
The [G7] treasure [C] I found [F] broken-[C] hearted
Was locked [G7] within my heart to [C] stay.
