INTRO - G C Bm Am X2
******
------------------------------------------------
VERSE 1
********
    G             Em
You always were a city kid
C                       D
Though you were country raised
    G            Em
And back in some forgotten time
   C                     D
We shared the cold north days

------------------------------------------------
CHORUS
*******
        G               Em
But the simple life was not your style
        C           D
And you just had to escape
        G       C     Bm   Am     D     G
So it's goodbye to my lady of the islands

------------------------------------------------
VERSE 2
********
G                      Em
On Remembrance Day the bands all played
    C                        D
The bells pealed through the park
        G                 Em
And you lay there by the "Do Not" signs
    C                     D 
And shamed them with your spark

------------------------------------------------
CHORUS
*******
     G               Em
Now, winter moans in old men's bones
       C              D
As the day falls into dark
         G       C     Bm   Am     D     G
And it's goodbye to my lady of the islands

------------------------------------------------
BRIDGE
*******
       Bm             Em
It was just like this behind
               Am            D
The kisses you so soon swept away
     Bm               Em
Oh I always knew that some day 
         Am                D      Am   Bm  Am
You'd be bound to just get pulled away

------------------------------------------------
VERSE 3
********
G                    Em
The summer sun beats on and on
    C                 D
The shops swim in the heat
           G               Em
And you're standin' by the traffic signs
     C             D 
With taxis at your feet

------------------------------------------------
CHORUS
*******
        G                 Em
Well, I know that in your city skin
       C            D
You're feeling more complete
        G       C     Bm   Am     D     G
So it's goodbye to my lady of the islands
