Island In The Sun chords by Harry Belafonte
Guitar chords with lyrics
[CC]This is my island [FF]in the sun
Where my [G7G7]people have toiled since [CC]time begun.
[CC]I may sail on [DmDm]many a sea
Her [CC]shores will always be [G7G7]home to [CC]me.
[CC]Oh, island [FF]in the sun,
[G7G7]Willed to me by my [CC]father's hand
[CC]All my days I will [FF]sing and praise
Of your [G7G7]forests, waters, your [CC]shining sands.
[CC]As morning breaks the [FF]heaven on high
I [G7G7]lift my heavy [CC]load to the sky.
[CC]Sun comes down with a [DmDm]burning glow
[CC]Mingles my sweat with the [G7G7]earth be[CC]low.
[CC]I see woman on [f]bended knees
[G7G7]Cutting cane for her [CC]family.
[CC]I see man at the [DmDm]water side
[CC]Casting nets at the [G7G7]surging [CC]tide.
[CC]I hope the day will [FF]never come
That [G7G7]I can't awake to the [CC]sound of a drum,
[CC]Never let me miss [DmDm]carnival
With caly[CC]pso songs philo[G7G7]sophi[CC]cal.
