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

Sara, Sara
   
D                   
C         
Em  
So easy to look at, so hard to define

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

G

Sara, Sara

Sweet virgin angel, sweet love of my life

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
