Living On The Island
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
 
G
Day by day they drink and dream, old men staring out to sea,
                Am      D                        G
From the island, living on the island,
G
And down in the harbour it's a show,
G
Watching all the people as they come and go,
             Am     D                        G
On the island, living on the island;
 
G
And up in the mountains they're alright,
G
Tasting the first of a summer wine,
             Am     D                        G
On the island, living on the island,
                D                              C
I wanna feel that sunshine in my heart,
                    G                              D
And let it blow my worries away,
                F                                  C                      G   D
I wanna spend a night in the ocean with her;
 
G
That little lady lover who's in love with me,
G
Prettiest little lady that I've ever seen,
             Am     D                          G
On the island, living on the island;
 
G
Ooh, and when I finally sail away,
G
I know for sure I'll be back someday,
             Am     D                          Em E
On the island, living on the island,
             Am     D                      
On the island, living on the island,
G                                                          Am
I wanna feel that sunshine on my back,
Am       D                             Em E
Oh, oh, oh, living on the island,
             Am     D                                       G
On the island, we'll be living on the island,
G                                                            Am    D
I wanna feel that wind blow in my hair,
                            G
Living On the island...
