Isle Of Innisfree

	  		 

G    G7    C    Am    D    D7    G    D7 

              G         G7             C        Am  
I've met some folks who say that I'm a dreamer  
            D              D7                 G     D7 
And I've no doubt, there's truth in what they say 
           G      G7            C        Am 
But sure a body's bound to be a dreamer 
             D         D7            G      D7 
When all the things he loves are far away 
   
             G          G7             C      Am 
And precious things are dreams unto an exile 
              D        D7              G    D7 
They take him o'er the land across the sea 
           G       G7              C      Am 
Especially when it happens he's an exile 
               D      D7           G     G7 
From that dear lovely Isle of Innisfree 

             C         C                G         G      
And when the moonlight peeps across the rooftops 
              A     A7               D    D7 
Of this great city, wondrous tho' it be 
           G        G7            C         Am 
I scarcely feel its wonder or its laughter 
         D           D7           G     D7 
I'm once again, back home in Innisfree 

G    G7    C    Am    D    D7    G    D7 
G    G7    C    Am    D    D7    G    D7 

         G          G7                    C        Am 
I wander o'er green hills, through dreamy valleys 
           D        D7               G     D7 
And find a peace no other land could know 
           G          G7            C       Am 
I hear the birds make music fit for angels 
              D      D7               G     D7 
And watch the rivers laughing as they flow 

           G    G7             C       Am 
And then into a humble shack I wander 
            D       D7         G     D7 
My dear old home, I tenderly behold 
            G      G7                   C         Am 
The folks I love, around the turf-fire, gathered 
          D        D7        G     G7 
On bended knee the rosary is told 

                 C            C                 G        G 
But dreams don't last, though dreams are not forgotten 
             A       A7         D    D7 
And soon I'm back to stern reality 
                G        G                   C          Am 
But though they pave the footpaths here with gold-dust 
              D         D7           G      D7 
I still would choose my Isle of Innisfree 
           G        G7            C         Am 
I scarcely feel its wonder or its laughter 
         D           D7           G     G7 
I'm once again, back home in Innisfree 
              D         D7           G      C     G 
I still would choose my Isle of Innisfree
