2. Send every wave as it rolls on its way,

                    Am                   C                     G7           G

    searchin’ high, searchin’ low, searchin’ each little bay.

4. Ask all the fish as they swim out to sea,

                       Am                C            G7          G

    would they pass on the word as a favour to me.

       G7             G           G7              G

    Maybe they look out some little brook, 

     G7               G         C

    and find the one I adore.
