2. The Island: Come and See/The Landlord's Daughter/You'll Feel Not the Drowning

INTRO

Em

VERSE 1

There's an island hidden in the sound
Lapping currents lay your boat aground 
                    G
Affix your barb and bayonet
    A                   Bb
The curlews carve their arabesques
    Em
And sorrow fills the silence all around
Come and see 

VERSE 2

There's a harbor lost within the reeds
A jetty caught in over-hanging trees
                 G
Among the bones of cormorants
   A        Bb
No boot-mark here nor fingerprint
    Em
The rivers roll down to a soundless sea
Come and see
         G G/F# Em
Come and see 

CHORUS

              D        C
The tides all come and go witnessed by no waking eye
Em     D                C
The willows mark the wind
    Em     D   C
And all we know for sure amidst this fading light
Em    D               C
We'll not go home again
         B7    C
Come and see
         B7    C   D   Em
Come and see 

VERSE 3

In the lowlands, nestled in the heath
A briar-cradle rocks its babe to sleep
                        G
Its contents watched by Sycorax
    A         Bb
And Patagon in parallax
  Em
A foretold rumbling sounds below the deep         
Come and see
         G G/F# Em
Come and see 

CHORUS

              D        C
The tides all come and go witnessed by no waking eye
Em     D                C
The willows mark the wind
Em         D        C
And all we know for sure amidst this fading light
Em    D               C
We'll not go home again
         B7    C
Come and see
         B7    C   D   Am
Come and see

*The Landlords Daughter*

Am D Am D Am D Am D
Am                D Am              D
As I was a-ramble down by the water
Am            D Am                      D  Am D Am D
I spied in sable the landlord's daughter 
Am                 D  Am           D
I produced my pistol, then my saber
Am                   D  Am                       D
Said, "Make no whistle or thou will be murdered!"

Am D     Am D Am D Am D Am D Am D Am D
La-Ha-Ha      La-Ha
Am                     D   Am                D
She cursed, she shivered, she cried for mercy
Am                D Am                      D
"My gold and silver if thou will release me!"

G Bb F G# Eb Bbm A 

Dm                  Bb    Dm              Bb       
I'll take no gold, miss. I'll take no silver.
Dm                       Bb    Dm                Bb
But I'll take those sweet lips and thou will deliver!

Am D     Am D Am D Am D Am D Am D Am D

*You'll Feel Not the Drowning*

INTRO

Am Asus2 

VERSE 1

Am   C
I will dress your eyelids
     Am    C
With dimes upon your eyes
Am       C
Lay you close to water
Am       C
Green your grave will rise 

CHORUS

G
Go to sleep now, little ugly
Am
Go to sleep now, you little fool
G
Forty winking in the belfry
F     G
You'll not feel the drowning
F     G  G#+
You'll not feel the drowning

VERSE 2

Am           C
Forget you once had sweethearts
Am          C
They've forgotten you
Am         C
Think you not on parents
Am        C
They've forgotten too 

CHORUS

G
Go to sleep now, little ugly
Am
Go to sleep now, you little fool
G
Forty winking in the belfry
F     G
You'll not feel the drowning
F     G  G#+
You'll not feel the drowning

VERSE 3/OUTRO

Am        C 
Hear you now the captain
Am           C
Heave his sorrowed cry
Am           C
The weight upon your eyelids
Am                          C
Is dimes laid on your eyes

I want to thank you so much for this, I've wanted to play it for ages but there was no way I would've managed to figure it all out.

The end of The Landlord's daughter isn't quite right, it stays on Dm, rather than Am, for the last ah-la's, and there's a G after "And though will deliver" to bring it into the ah-la's.

Otherwise it's absolutely fantastic and I'm thrilled it's here!
