I Was An Island by Allison Weiss
Tabbed By Titanium Drew


Capo 5th Fret


Simple song with all of four chords basically.  The chord marked "G2" on here is just a pretty
common transitional G Maj (half step down on low E string and A string opened, like this):

 F   C2
-3- -3-|
-3- -3-|
-0- -0-|
-0- -0-|
-2- -0-|
-3- -2-|

The strumming is pretty easy to pick up from the song and there are only a couple strum patterns
throughout.  There is a nice little instrumental solo in the middle and she did an 
version
on what I think was her first youtube video of this song.  It is basically just a few 
using
the chord shapes themselves.  Look it up on youtube, it should be the first result if 
seach for
this song.  It is a nice addition to a easy, pretty song.  Enjoy  -TD


VERSE 1

         F                       Am
I was an island  before you came along

         F                                 G
but your boat in my sand  hand in my hand  heart in my songs

        F                     Am
I was a fighter  and I was so brave

      F                                                  G
but I lowered my sword  and you held me and swore  you'd stay stay stay

CHORUS

   F       G       F     C2 Am
oh I can't do this alone anymore

      F      G          F   C2 Am
cause I'm no good on my own anymore

F                G             F            C2    Am
what did I do to deserve this  what did you do to me

F                  G                       F
baby come back you know I don't want to be free

VERSE 2

        F                  Am
I was a rebel  but I had a cause

     F                                       G
'til you came to town  pushed me around  and showed me what love was

        F                         Am
I was a wolf dear  apart from the pack

        F                                          G
but you answered my cry  in the dead of the night  told me that you had my back

CHORUS

   F       G       F     C2 Am
oh I can't do this alone anymore

      F      G          F   C2 Am
cause I'm no good on my own anymore

F                G             F            C2    Am
what did I do to deserve this  what did you do to me

F                  G                       F
baby come back you know I don't want to be free

F                  G                       Am
