We were borne before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonny boat was won
We sailed into the mystic

 

Hark now hear the sailor's cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly
Into the mystic

 

When the foghorn whistle blows
I will be comin' home
When the foghorn whistle blows
I wanna hear it
Never gonna fear it

 

I wanna rock your gypsy soul
Like way back in the days of old
Effervescently we flow 
Into the mystic

 

When the foghorn whistle blows
I will be comin' home
When the foghorn whistle blows
I wanna hear it
Never gonna fear it

 

I wanna rock your gypsy soul
Like way back in the days of old
You and I will flow 
Into the mystic

Into the Mystic

This song needs to be played in the key of F because of the voicing of the add 9 chord on the tonic. F is a little high for me to sing. When I'm playing live I usually just suck it up and sing the song in F. For the recording, I tuned the guitar down a half step This has me actually singing in the key of E - much more comfortable. The first chart is in the key of F. This is how I actually played it, although the guitar was tuned down a half step. The second chart would be what the concert pitch of the guitar is when tuned down.
