J.P. Cormier - The Island


CAPO: 3rd Fret




INTRO: D C G D C G D C G D

                            A          D
The heart of a young man is ruled by desire
                                A           D
It only climbs mountains if the next one is higher
G        C            G                A
Over the hillside and down through the glen
       D                    A          D    C-G-D
I have followed its calling back home again


                       A               D
Mile after mile I have searched but in vain
                                       A              D
For the place where my dreams won't be drowned by the rain
G        C        G           A
Over and over the lesson I've learned
       D                              A          D    C-G-D
Is the place I should be is where the home fires burn

 
CHORUS:
          A                         Em
Where the mountains are weeping and calling my name
        G                      D            A
And the sea sings a song of my father's who came
       D                     A            D
To the Island, the Island my heart will remain


INSTRUMENTAL: 


                    A              D
Music and magic and friends by the fire
                              A           D
A memory of a place where the spirits are higher
G             C          G            A
Last looks at beauty and tears of goodbye
D                   A          D    C-G-D
Live in my soul and burn in my eyes


CHORUS:
        A                         Em
For the mountains are weeping and calling my name
        G                      D            A
And the sea sings a song of my father's who came
       D                     A            D
To the Island, the Island my heart will remain


INSTRUMENTAL: 


                               A            D
The road's turning back now as time turns a page
                                A             D
I no longer feel the shoes of a younger man's age
G          C           G              A
She let me go with her blessings back then
      D                             A           D    C-G-D
But I know she'll be glad to have me back home again


CHORUS:
          A                         Em
Where the mountains are weeping and calling my name
        G                      D            A
And the sea sings a song of my father's who came
       D                     A            D    C-G-D
To the Island, the Island my heart will remain


CHORUS:
          A                         Em
Where the mountains are weeping and calling my name
        G                      D            A
And the sea sings a song of my father's who came
       D                     A            D    C-G-D
To the Island, the Island my heart will remain
       D                     A            D    C-G-D  C-G-D  C-G-D
On the Island, the Island my heart will remain
