John Denver 

        A                                 A6
To sail on a dream, on a crystal blue ocean,
        A7                              A                 Bm/A    
To ride on the crest of a wild raging storm,
         A                               A6               
To work in the service of life and the living,
          A7                   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 the 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               A
The men who have served you so long and so well

                  E               D       A
Hi - dee-- ay -- ee -- ooo
              E               D                A         E          D     A
Do-dle-oh-ooo do do do do do do-dle ay-ee
              E          Dsus4      D    A(add B)    A    D/A    A(add B)   D/A

                    A                                     A7
Like the dolphins to guide you, you bring us beside you
       A7                                       A               Bm/A
To light up the darkness and show us the way
           A                                       A6
For though we are strangers in your silent world,
    Amaj7           A                                       Bm/A
To live on the land we must learn from the sea
             A                           A6
To be true as the tide and free as a wind swell
Amaj7           A                     Em7/A
Joyful and loving and letting it be
