She Took The Wind From His Sails         George Strait

Intro [D][A]
[D] Outer banks of North Carolina
lies a sleepy harbor town
generations of old sailors
dropped their sails and [G] settled down
[D] sam he is a young seafarer
grandson of a schooner man
Catherine is a sail makers' daughter
today he's gonna [G] take her hand

Chorus 1:
[A] Calm [G] waters, [A] wish them [G] well
his [Em] ships' come [F#] in, [G] she's put the [A] wind in his [D] sails

[D] Catherine is a canvas painter
paints the sun and sand and sea
lately she's been painting a portrait
Sam he is a [G] dad to be

Repeat Chorus 1:

[D] January brought the fever
Sam was right there by her side
doctor told him son, I'm sorry,
but Catherine need your [G] prayers tonight

[D] Morning light brought Sam a daughter
fever took his better half
Sam gave Catherine to the water
as he held their baby [G] to his chest

Chorus 2:
[A] Calm [G] waters, [A] wished him [G] well
his [Em] ship came [F#] in, but [G] she took the [A] wind from his [D] sails

his [Em] ship came [F#] in, but [G] she took the [A] wind from his [D] sails
