Song Description

my brother and sister in-law inspired me to write this song it is based on their sail boat that they have and the adventures and sights they see when they are out on the ocean...

Story Behind the Song

well to be truthful...after my brother in law purchased this boat and I saw the freedom and serenity of the open water, I wrote this song on the prospective that my wife and I would just take it out and sail around..maybe forever...

POINTS UNKNOWN / JIM ANDERSON
D C7
THEY SAILED OFF, IN THE MISTY WATERS NAME__________________________
G7 D
LEAVING THEIR PAST BEHIND
D C7
LIFE FOR THEM, HAD BECOME, SIMPLE
G7 D7
LIFE BEFORE--- HAD TURNED UNKIND

C G D
THEY SAILED OFF, TO POINTS UNKNOWN

D C7
THEY WERE TIRED OF, THEIR COMPLEX LIVING (DOUBLE DROP D)
G7 D (CAPO 1ST)
TOO MANY WAYS TO BE PULLED
D C7
LIFE FOR THEM, HAD NO MORE MEANING
G7 D
COULD A LIFE GET TOO FULL

C G D (OPT MOVE)
(SO) THEY SAILED OFF, TO POINTS UNKNOWN

D C7
THEY SAILED EAST AND TOOK IN THE SUNRISE
G7 D
A SIGHT THEY, NEVER GAVE MUCH THOUGHT
D C7
LOOKED OUT AT, THE CLEAR BLUE WATER
G7 D
IS THIS THE LIFE THEY ALWAYS SOUGHT

C G D (OPT MOVE)
(SO) THEY SAILED OFF, TO POINTS UNKNOWN

REPEAT FIRST VERSE...

C G D
(SO) THEY SAILED OFF, TO POINTS UNKNOWN X 2
