A F#m Looking out forward over the prow of our long ship, E/D D Em pulling our oars and listening to the foam; A F#m helmets and sheepskins salt-damp in the sea-mist: E/D D Em We're going home. Em Dm Aslak of Langadale, Einar Thorgeirsson, Em Dm Olaf the White and Sigurd the Powerful.................. A F#m Looking for constellations above the horizon, E/D D Em West wind cutting sharper than our blades; A F#m smiling forever into an endless sunrise, E/D D Em we're flying on the waves. Em Dm Thorfin Karlsefny, Aud the Deep-Minded, Em Dm Snorri Thorbrandsson, Thorstein the Black............... A F#m Out of dark Vinland, with grey waves racing before us E/D D Em We want no rest. A F#m Back to the homeland, Iceland, sleeping in winter E/D D Em back from the West. E/D D Em Five years we roam; E/D D Em now we're going home.
