                [[This song is my dad's favorite lullaby, because my mom sang it to him when they 
were dating. I don't know what key it's in originally, but I worked out suitable 
chords for myself in key of D. I also like to play it with a 3/4 finger-picking 
pattern of: p-i-m-a-m-i. I love its gentle prettiness. :) ]]


(v.1)
D
Far away places with strange-sounding names
D                  A7
Far away over the sea
       D                          G
Those far away places with their strange-sounding names
    D         A7     D
Are callin', callin' me.


(v.2)
D
Goin' to China, or maybe Siam
D                    A7
I want to see for myself
       D                        G
Those far away places I've been reading about
     D            A7            D
In a book that I took from the shelf.


(Bridge:)
   G                        D
I start gettin' restless whenever I hear
     A7           D
The whistle of a train.
   G                     D
I pray for the day I can get underway
    E                          A
And look for those castles in Spain.


(v.3)
      D
They call me a dreamer, well maybe I am
D                  A7
But I know that I'm yearnin' to see
       D                          G
Those far away places with their strange-sounding names
          D        A7     D
That are callin', callin' me.


(Repeat entire.)
