Gerry Rafferty
album: City to City 1978
song: The Ark
Transcribed by Brett Stengs

played by Gerry's acoustic guitar.

Verse 1
-------------

G                           D
See the dark night has come down on us
G                          D
The world is livin' in its dream
G                           D
But now we know that we can wake up from this sleep
D                  A
And set out on the journey
G              C            D
Find a ship to take us on the way.

Verse 2
-------------
G                                D
The time has come to trust that guiding light
G                          D
And leavin' all the rest behind
G                                   D
We'll take the road that leads down to the waterside
D                     A
And set out on the journey
G              C             D
Find a ship to take us on the way.

Chorus:
================================
(D)       C   Am             G
And we'll sail    out on the water

(G)       D            A
Yes we'll feel the sea grow

(A)        Em             G
Yes we'll meet out on the water

(G)                         A   Asus4 A
Where are all strangers are known.

G                                   D
And when your heart can see just one thing in this life
D                   A
We'll set out on the journey

The world is livin' in its dream
