Guitar Chords for THE ISLAND PAUL BRADY    

*****  PJs Guitar Chords & Lyrics  -  http://www.guitarsongs.info  *****


Capo 3rd  Fret

               D       A           D        A
They say the skies of Lebanon are burning
              D        A             D       A
Those mighty cedars bleeding in the heat
                 D       A           D     A
They're showing pictures on the television
            D       A             D *
Women and children dying in the street
And we're still at it in our own place
D                          A                  D *
Still trying to reach the future through the past
Still trying to carve tomorrow from a tombstone... 

But Hey! Don't listen to me!
D7                          G
This wasn't meant to be no sad song
                 A              D
We've heard too much of that before 
Right now I only want to be here with you
          G       A         D
Till the morning dew comes falling 
I want to take you to the island
                A                 D
And trace your footprints in the sand
And in the evening when the sun goes down 
            G           A                  D
We'll make love to the sound of the ocean

They're raising banners over by the markets 
Whitewashing slogans on the shipyard walls 
Witchdoctors praying for a mighty showdown 
No way our holy flag is gonna fall 
Up here we sacrifice our children 
To feed the worn-out dreams of yesterday 
And teach them dying will lead us into glory... 

Repeat chorus 

Now I know us plain folks don't see all the story 
And I know this peace and love's just copping out 
And I guess these young boys dying in the ditches 
Is just what being free is all about 
And how this twisted wreckage down on main street 
Will bring us all together in the end 
And we'll go marching down the road to freedom... 

D *

G           0  2
D  4  2  4
