Em Am D Em Em Am D Em

  Em                Am               
I laid on a dune, I looked at the sky
When the children were babies
And played on the beach
    Em                   Am           
You came up behind me, I saw you go by
You were always so close
And still within reach

G Bm  Am  
Sara, Sara
D                         C           Em   
Whatever made you want to change your mind?
G Bm  Am  
Sara, Sara
   D                   C         Em  
So easy to look at, so hard to define

I can still see them playin'
With their pails in the sand
     D                       Em             
They run to the water  their buckets to fill
I can still see the shells
Fallin' out of their hands
        D                   Em              
As they follow each other   back up the hill

G Bm  Am  
Sara, Sara
 D                        C          Em  
Sweet virgin angel, sweet love of my life
G Bm  Am  
Sara, Sara
D              C        Em  
Radiant jewel, mystical wife

Em Am D Em Em Am D Em G Bm
Am D C Em G Bm Am D C Em                    

Sleepin' in the woods by a fire in the night
Drinkin' white rum in a Portugal bar
Them playin' leapfrog
And hearin' about Snow White
You in the marketplace in Savanna-la-Mar

Sara, Sara
It's all so clear, I could never forget
Sara, Sara
Lovin' you is the one thing I'll never regret

I can still hear the sounds
Of those Methodist bells
I'd taken the cure
And had just gotten through
Stayin' up for days in the Chelsea Hotel
Writin' "Sad-Eyed Lady
Of the Lowlands" for you

Sara, Sara
Wherever we travel we're never apart
Sara, Sara
Beautiful lady, so dear to my heart

How did I meet you? I don't know
A messenger sent me in a tropical storm
You were there in the winter
Moonlight on the snow
And on Lily Pond Lane
When the weather was warm

Sara, Sara
Scorpio Sphinx in a calico dress
Sara, Sara
You must forgive me my unworthiness

Now the beach is deserted
Except for some kelp
And a piece of an old ship
That lies on the shore
You always responded when I needed your help
You gimme a map and a key to your door

Sara, Sara
Glamorous nymph with an arrow and bow
Sara, Sara
Don't ever leave me, don't ever go
