(John Denver)

   A                    A6
To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean
   Amaj7                    A           Bm/A
To ride on the crest of the wild raging storm
   A                      A6
To work in the service of life and the living
   Amaj7         A                      Bm/A
In search of the answers to questions unknown
      A                        A6
To be part of the movement and part of the growing
Amaj7     A               Em7/A
Part of beginning to understand
        D                 A
        Aye, Calypso, the places you've been to
            D                  A             E           A
        The things that you've shown us, the stories you tell!
        D               A
        Aye, Calypso, I sing to your spirit
            D            A             E7
        The men who have served you so long and so well
               E     D A        E         D        A
        Hi-dee-ay-ee-ooo do-dle-oh-ooo Do do do do do
               E  D A           E    Dsus4 D A D
        Do-dle-ay-ee     do-dle-ay-ee

Like the dolphin who guides you, You bring us beside you
To light up the darkness and show us the way
For though we are strangers in your silent world
To live on the land we must learn from the sea
To be true as the tide  And free as a windswell
Joyful and loving in letting it be
