    BmBm9Gm7G6AGABm
     
    Bm is fingered as a barre chord off of the second fret.
    Bm9 is fingered the same way as Bm, but you let go of your middle finger.
    GM7 is fingered strangely:
    Pointer Finger: 2nd fret high E
    3rd fret B
    Ring Finger: 4th fret G
    Pink Finger: 5th fret D
    (You can bar the entire second fret
    with your pointer finger if you like.)
    For the G6, finger the GM7 but let
    go of your pointer finger on the
    E
    high . 
    (Begins with 4x melody intro.)
    BmBm9
    An old man by a seashore 
    Gm7G6
    At the end of day 
    AG
    Gazes the horizon 
    ABm
    With seawinds in his face 
    BmBm9
    Tempest-tossed island 
    Gm7G6
    Seasons all the same 
    AG
    Anchorage unpainted 
    ABm
    And a ship without a name 
    (Bm for 3 bars before singing continues.)
    BmBm9Gm7G6
    Sea without a shore for the banished one unheard 
    AGA
    He lightens the beacon, light 
    Bm
    at the end of world 
    BmBm9Gm7G6
    Showing the way lighting hope in their hearts 
    AGABm
    The ones on their travels homeward from afar 
    (Bm for 1 measure before singing continues.)
    BmGDABm
    This is long-for got-ten 
    GDEmBm
    Light at the end of the world 
    GDABm
    Hori-zon cry-un 
    GDEm
    The tears he left behind long ago 
    (2x Melody intro thing intercedes.)
    BmBm9
    The albatross is flying 
    Gm7G6
    Making him daydream 
    AG
    The time before he became 
    ABm
    One of the world's unseen 
    BmBm9
    Princess in the tower 
    Gm7G6
    Children in the fields 
    AG
    Life gave him it all: 
    ABm
    An island of the universe 
    (4 measures of Bm and if you cool
    you can say Ohh on the 3rd measure.)
    BmBm9
    Now his love's a memory 
    Gm7G6
    A ghost in the fog 
    AG
    He sets the sails one last time 
    ABm
    Saying farewell to the world 
    BmBm9
    Anchor to the water 
    Gm7G6
    Seabed far below 
    AG
    Grass still in his feet 
    ABm
    And a smile beneath his brow 
    (Bm for 3 measures before singing continues.)
    BmGDABm
    This is for long-for got-ten 
    GDEmBm
    Light at the end of the world 
    GDABm
    Hori-zon cry-un 
    GDEm
    The tears he left behind so long ago 
    (Intro melody x2, Bagpipe-thing solo, chorus, Introx2, Ending Bagpipe solo. Sing "So long
    ago" between the Intro melodies.)
    Judging from the videos I've seen of Marco playing it, I don't think he uses the same fingerings
    for the chords but it sounds the same to me.
