Lyrics and Chords:
-----------------

     G               Em
I am sailing, I am sailing
      C               G
Home again 'cross the sea
      Am             Em
I am sailing, stormy waters
      Am            [ G    D]
To be near you, to be free

I am flying, I am flying
Like a bird 'cross the sky
I am flying, passing high clouds
To be near you, to be free

Can you hear me, can you hear me
Through the dark night, far away?
I am dying, forever crying
To be with you, who can say

Can you hear me, can you hear me
Through the dark night far away?
I am dying, forever crying
To be with you, who can say

We are sailing, we are sailing
Home again 'cross the sea
We are sailing stormy waters
                    [ G
To be near you, to be free

D     ]        Am            [ G
Oh Lord, to be near you, to be free
D     ]        Am            [ G
Oh my Lord, to be near you, to be free
D     ]        Am            [ G
Oh my Lord, to be near you, to be free

Oh Lord...

   G       D      Am

----------------------------

"Sailing" was recorded by Rod Stewart for his first album recorded in North America rather than Great Britain: Atlantic Crossing, which album was recorded April – June 1975 at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio with Tom Dowd producing. The first single from the album, "Sailing" afforded Stewart an international hit notably in the UK where "Sailing" was No. 1 for four weeks in September 1975: augmented by a return to the UK chart in 1976 and – to a lesser extent – 1987, "Sailing" remains the Rod Stewart single to have the greatest success in its UK release. However, "Sailing" failed to afford Stewart a major hit in his newly adopted US homeland.
