Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
        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**

        C    F    C   F       C   F   C   F

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

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

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

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