Intro 

|G  |C  |G  |   |C  |   |G  | 
|G  |C  |G  |   |D  |C  |G  | 

verse 1 
     G          C           G 
Six  years I've been in the desert 
          C                    G 
And every night I dream of the sea 
         G    C              G 
They say home   is where you find it 
              D     C              G 
But will this place   ever satisfy me 

verse 2 
      G             C          G 
For I come from the salt water people 
          C            G 
We always lived by the sea 
        G        C             G 
Now I'm out here west of Alice Springs 
       D    C           G 
With a wife   and a family 

Chorus 
              Em 
And my island home 
          G 
My island home 
          D    C                  G 
My island home   is a waiting for me 

verse 3 
       Em          D        G 
In the evening the dry wind blows 
         G                    C 
From the hills and across the plains 
  Em       D            G 
I close my eyes and I'm standing 
     G                C 
In a boat on the sea again 
        Em           D           G 
And Iā??m holding that long turtle spear 
               G                          C 
And I feel Iā??m close now to where it must be 
              D    C                  G 
And my island home   is a waiting for me

For I come from the salt water people 
          C            G 
We always lived by the sea 
        G        C             G 
Now I'm out here west of Alice Springs 
       D    C           G 
With a wife   and a family

From the hills and across the plains 
  Em       D            G 
I close my eyes and I'm standing 
     G                C 
In a boat on the sea again 
        Em           D           G
