Capo 7

Intro: C

 C
Day by day they drink and dream,
C
Old men staring out to sea,
         Dm     G              C
From the island, living on the island,

     C
And down in the harbour, it's a show,
 C
Watching all the people as they come and go,
       Dm     G              C
On the island, living on the island,

    C
And up in the mountains, they're alright,
 C
Tasting the first of the summer wine,
       Dm     G              C
On the island, living on the island,

         G                 F
I wanna feel that sunshine in my heart,
             C               G
And let it blow my worries away,
          Bb                 F           G G7
I wanna spend a night in the ocean with her,

      C
That little lady lover who's in love with me,
  C
Prettiest little lady that I've ever seen,
       Dm     G              C
On the island, living on the island,

G F C G Bb F G G7

           C
Ooh, and when I finally sail away,
    C
I know for sure I'll be back someday,
       Dm     G              A   A7
On the island, living on the island,
       Dm     G              C
On the island, living on the island,
       Dm     G              C
On the island, living on the island,
       Dm     G              C
On the island, living on the island, (I wanna feel that sunshine on my back),
       Dm     G              C
On the island, living on the island, 
       Dm     G                       C              
On the island, we'll be living on the island, (I wanna feel that wind blow in my face),
       Dm     G              C
On the island, living on the island,
       Dm     G              C
On the island, living on the island,
       Dm     G              C
On the island, living on the island...
