About this tab version
This is a difficult tune to play well and recommended for advanced palyers only. It was built on from the previous version which was good but inexact. Missing were the G#/C 's at the end of the verses, which are in the recording and add breath to the song. Also, importantly, the last two verses are now aligned with the vocal la-la-la parts, so the chord changes and lyric syllabals line up. A singer can now time them corrctly. This is actually a big deal in performing this song, that edit helped hugely. This is the same sheet we use when we play the song live at shows. Was this info helpful? Yes No

La Isla Bonita - Madonna
[percussion, 4 bars]
[Intro]
C#m B C#m C#m 
C#m B C#m C#m 
Como puede ser verdad

[Verse 1]
C#m          B             C#m
Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
A       C#m     E             B
  Just like I'd never gone, I knew the song
  C#m             B             C#m
A young girl with eyes like the desert
A    C#m            E              B    G#/C
  It all seems like yesterday, not far away

[Chorus]
C#m            G#m  G#m7    F#m             E           
Tropical the island breeze  All of nature wild and free 
B               B/F#    F#m          B  C#m
This is where I long to be   La isla bonita
               G#m G#m7    F#m                 E      
And when the samba played    The sun would set so high
     B                   B/F#     F#m                   B C#m
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes  Your Spanish lullaby 

C#m B C#m C#m    C#m B C#m C#m

[Verse 2]
C#m        B            C#m
I fell in love with San Pedro
A      C#m          E              B
  Warm wind carried on the sea, he called to me
C#m         B      C#m
        Te dijo te amo
A/C#  C#m             E                     B       G#/C
    I prayed that the days would last, they went so fast

[Chorus]
C#m            G#m  G#m7    F#m             E                
Tropical the island breeze  All of nature wild and free      
B               B/F#    F#m          B  C#m                  
This is where I long to be   La isla bonita                  
               G#m G#m7    F#m                 E             
And when the samba played    The sun would set so high       
     B                   B/F#     F#m                   B C#m
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes  Your Spanish lullaby 

C#m B C#m C#m    C#m B C#m C#m


F#m       D            E             Bsus2
I want to be where the sun warms the sky
          F#m        D            E            
When it's time for siesta you can watch them go by
F#m       D         E             Bsus2
Beautiful faces, no cares in this world
        F#m          D          E       G#7/C#   C#m
Where a girl loves a boy, and a boy ... loves a  girl

C#m          B             C#m

C#m            G#m  G#m7    F#m             E
