Taken from MORGANGC's version - I have corrected the chords and some
lyrics as they didn't sound right. I *think* these are right ;-)
Happy playing, its a great song...

ON AN ISLAND

(Gilmour/Gilmour - Samson)

[Intro]  Em Em Em Em


[Verse]
Em            Am
Remember that night...
      Cmaj7        Bm  B       Em
White steps in the moonlight
               Am
They walked it too...
              Cmaj7            Bm      B        Em
Through empty playground, this ghost's town
         Am               Cmaj7          Bm B       Em
Children again on rusting swings getting higher
          Am
Sharing a dream
      Cmaj7         Bm   B        
On an Island.... it felt right
   Em          Bm          
We lay side by side,
            Dm           Am
Between the moon and the tide
Cm          Gm          A
Mapping the stars for a while


[Chorus]
G       A        Em
Let the night surround you
G              A      Em
We're half way to the stars,
G       A
Ebb and flow
G      A   G        A        Em
Let it go, feel her warmth beside you


[SOLO 1]


[Verse]
Em            Am
Remember that night,
    Cmaj7          Bm   B     Em
The warmth and the laughter
        Am
Candles burn...
           Cmaj7      Bm   B     Em
Though the church was deserted
                Am                 Cmaj7          Bm B     Em
At dawn we went down through empty streets to the harbour
             Am                  Cmaj7    Bm B   
Dreamers may leave, but theye're here everafter...
Em Bm Dm Am Cm Gm A
Da da da da da....


[Chorus]
G       A        Em
Let the night surround you
G              A      Em
We're half way to the stars,
G       A
Ebb and flow
G     A   G        A        Em
Let it go, feel her warmth beside you


[SOLO 2]

Nice work but what about de B7 at the end? a G or Bm would sound better I think.

Thanks. It is a G - it was a typo and I don't know how to get it changed....
