Island Home

	  		
This version of the song is taken from "the panel" cd. 
the lyrics aren't exactly the same as the original but 
i've never heard the original. i just had to figure this 
out for a friend and i thought i'd tab it out for any 
aussies who want this version. 
 
standard tuning 
capo on 2 
 
Intro: 
 
C  F  X4 
 
    C          F           C 
Six years I've been in the city 
      F                     C 
Every night I dreamt of the sea 
         C    F            C 
They say home is where you find it 
     G            F           C 
Will this place ever satisfy me 
 
      C             F          C 
For i come from the salt water people 
        F             C 
We always live by the sea 
        C         F             C 
Now i'm down here living in the city 
        G   F     C 
With my man and a family 
 
 
        Am              C 
My island home, my island home 
          G      F         C 
My island home, is waiting for me x 2 
 
 
       Am          C        
In the evening the dry wind blows 
                             F 
From the hills and across the plains 
  Am       G            C 
I close my eyes and I'm standing 
    C                F 
In a boat on the sea again 
        Am                G      C 
And I'm holding that long turtle spear 
               C                          F 
And i feel i'm close now to where it must be 
           G  F           C 
My island home is waiting for me 
 
 
(ooh yeah bit) 
Verse 1 music once through 
 
 
      C             F          C 
For i come from the salt water people 
        F             C 
We always live by the sea 
        C         F             C 
Now i'm down here living in the city 
        G   F     C 
With my man and a family 
 
 
        Am              C 
My island home, my island home 
          G      F         C 
My island home, is waiting for me x 2 
 
          G   F           C 
My island home, my island home 
         G    F           C 
My island home, my island home 
 
(end on last C slowly strummed)
