Tune down whole step:

[note: add one whole tone to each chord below to find shapes, e.g., C = D, F

|| C C F G | C C F G ||

Ooh...

 

C C F G

The Red-chins in their millions

C C F G

Will overspill their borders

C C F G C

And chaos then will reign in our Rael

 

The country of my fathers

A proud land of old order

Like a goldfish being swallowed by a whale

 

Bb Ab

Rael, the home of my religion

Bb Ab G

To me the center of the earth

 

The Red-chins in their millions

Will overspill their borders

And chaos then will reign in our Rael

 

My heritage is threatened

My roots are torn and cornered

And so to do my best I'll homeward sail

C F G Bb Bb Bb Bb

And so to do my best I'll homeward sail

 

Bb (Bb/A) (Bb/G) F (F/Eb) (F/D) (F/C)

Now captain, listen to my instructions

Bb F

Return to this spot on christmas day

Bb F

Look toward the shore for my signal

Bb Ab G

And then you'll know if in Rael I'll stay

 

|| G G G/F# C/G C/G G ||

 

G G/F# C/G G

If a yellow flag is fluttering

G G/F# C/G G

Sickly herald against the morn

G G/F# F

Then you'll know my courage has ended

C G C/G G

And you'll send your boat ashore

 

But if a red flag is flying

Brazen bold against the blue

Then you'll know that I am staying

And my yacht belongs to you

 

Bb F

Now captain, listen to my instructions

Return to this spot on christmas day

Look toward the shore for my signal

Bb Ab G

And then you'll know if in Rael I'll stay

 

|| G G G/F# C/G C/G G || A A A/Ab D/A D/A A || G...

 

|| Bb Bb Bb/A Eb/Bb Eb/Bb Bb ||

 

Ooh ooh ooh

What I see is all I've seen

F C

In my sweetest sleeping dreams

F C

What I feel is all I've felt

F Am

When by newborn babes I've knelt

F C Am

What I know now is all I've known

F

That has been good while I have grown

C

Bless the thoughts that made me sail

F A5

And the god who made Rael
