        Another tune I couldn't find on here, so have subbed how I play it,
        the Drun is just a D chord played slowly down then back up,
        play with it yourself, see what feels and sounds right for you.
        I have probably made a pile of mistakes on this one, but if it
        prompts someone else to submit a better version, everyone wins.

          As always any mistukes, feck ups or otherwise are mine,
          
                   if you like it,  go on,  go mad RATE IT !

                            THE ISLAND
                       ** CAPO 3rd FRET**

        D    A    D   A       D   A   D   A

                D         A          D       A
 They say the skies of Lebanon are burning
                D       A             D     A
 Those mighty cedars bleeding in the heat
                    D    A             D      A
They're showing pictures on the tele-vision
            D        A           Drun
Women and children dying in the street
G
Now we're still at it in our own place
                  D         A                  Drun
Still trying to reach the future through the past,   Still tryin' to
  G                      G  (TACET)
Carve tomorrow from a tombstone
     A                          D                          G
But hey don't listen to me,    This wasn't meant to be no sad song
                 A             D   A   D
We've heard too much of that before
                         A                           G      A           D
Right now I only want to be here with you 'til the morning dew comes falling

                          G                      A               D  A  D
I wanna take you to the island and trace your footprints in the sand
                             A   
And in the evening when the sun goes down 
            G            A            D       D
We'll make love to the sound of the ocean

                  D      A             D     A
They're raising battles over by the markets
                D    A                D     A
Whitewashing slogans on the shipyard wall
                D     A              D     A
Witchdoctors praying for a mighty showdown
           D    A             D run
The way a holy flag is gonna fall
G                                               D        A          D run
Up here we sacrifice our children,To feed the,Worn out dreams of yesterday
                 G                        G (TACET)
And teach them "Dying will lead us into Glory"
                 A             D                          G
But hey don't listen to me,   This wasn't  meant to be a sad song
                 A             D   A   D
We've heard too much of that before
  D                    A                           G      A           D
Right now I only wanna be here with you 'til the morning dew comes falling

CHORUS....I wanna take you to the island etc

            D                A             D    A
I know us plain folks don't see all  the story
          D         A                  D  A
I know  peace and love's just copping out
                D          A             D      A
I guess these young boys dying in the ditches
                 D      A          Drun
That's just what being free is all about
           G                       G
How this twisted wreckage down on Main Street
               D      A          Drun
Will bring us all together in the end
            G                        G         G       G
As we go marching down the road to freedom...        Freedom
