Blue Is The Eye Chord Ye Vagabonds

Capo 3 with [C] [F] [G] [Am]


VERSE
A crack in the sky lends a light to the dark
The wind blows the ember of coal from the hearth
You carry it proudly through ditches and trees
And cross the horizon to lie down and sleep

CHORUS
Lie down and sleep, sleep well my darling
Blue is the eye watches over the sea
Lie down and sleep, sleep well my darling
Blue is the eye that looks after thee

POST-CHORUS

VERSE
Under the fire from the hearth on the hill
The coal and the ember, they glow away still
Songs to the stranger, familiar and clear
Ring out in chorus for all you hold dear

CHORUS
Lie down and sleep, sleep well my darling
Blue is the eye watches over the sea
Lie down and sleep, sleep well my darling
Blue is the eye that looks after thee

POST-CHORUS

VERSE
A flash in the dark glimmers silver and blue
Breaches the waves for a moment or two
Moves away slowly back into the deep
Blue is the eye watches over the sea

CHORUS
Lie down and sleep, sleep well my darling
Blue is the eye watches over the sea
Lie down and sleep, sleep well my darling
Blue is the eye that looks after thee

CHORUS
Lie down and sleep, sleep well my darling
Blue is the eye watches over the sea
Lie down and sleep, sleep well my darling
Blue is the eye that looks after thee
