[Intro]
 Am        Em            C          G
Away to the west ward I'm longing to be,
                     Em        G          D
Where the beauties of heaven unfold by the sea
         Am           Em             C            G
Where the sweet purple heather blooms fragrant and free
                   D            C G
On a hilltop high above The Dark Island
 
[Chorus]
    G                        C           G
Oh, isle of my childhood, I'm dreaming of thee,
                     Em       G         D
As the steamer leaves Oban and passes Tiree
         Am          Em         C           G
Soon I'll capture the magic that lingers for me
                         D           C  G
When I'm back once more upon The Dark Island

[Verse]
  Am         Em              C           G
So gentle the sea breeze that ripples the bay
                          Em        G              D
Where the stream joins the ocean and young children play
      Am             Em          C            G
On the strand of pure silver I'll welcome each day
                     D             C  G
And I'll roam forever more The Dark Island

[Chorus]
    G                        C           G
Oh, isle of my childhood, I'm dreaming of thee,
                     Em       G         D
As the steamer leaves Oban and passes Tiree
         Am          Em         C           G
Soon I'll capture the magic that lingers for me
                         D           C  G
When I'm back once more upon The Dark Island

 [Verse]
    Am          Em       C             G
True gems of the Hebrides bathed in the light
                 Em           G            D
Of the mid-summer dawning that follows the night
     Am            Em           C          G
How I yearn for the cries of the seagull in flight
                     D            C  G
As they circle high above The Dark Island

[Outro]
    G                        C           G
Oh, isle of my childhood, I'm dreaming of thee,
                     Em       G         D
As the steamer leaves Oban and passes Tiree
         Am          Em         C           G
Soon I'll capture the magic that lingers for me
                         D           C  G
When I'm back once more upon The Dark Island
