The Island

Capo on 3rd fret
	  		Capotraste 3 casa 



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

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

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

G D G Bm G D But hey, don't listen to me! This wasn't meant to be no sad song. G A D I've sung too much of that before. G A D G Right now I only want to be here with you Bm A D 'Til the morning dew comes falling. G D And I wanna take you to the island, G A D Trace your footprints in the sand. G A D G And in the evening when there's no one around, Bm A D We'll make love to the sound of the ocean.

D Bm G D 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. G A And how this twisted wreckage down on main street D G Bm Will bring us all together in the end G A D G And we'll go marching down the road to freedom D Bm Freedom D G Freedom
