Island In The Sun

Höfundur lags: Harry Belafonte Höfundur texta: Harry Belafonte Flytjandi: Harry Belafonte Sent inn af: Anonymous
[C]This is my island [F]in the sun
Where my [G7]people have toiled since [C]time begun.
[C]I may sail on [Dm]many a sea
Her [C]shores will always be [G7]home to [C]me.  

[C]Oh, island [F]in the sun,
[G7]Willed to me by my [C]father's hand
[C]All my days I will [F]sing and praise
Of your [G7]forests, waters, your [C]shining sands.

[C]As morning breaks the [F]heaven on high
I [G7]lift my heavy [C]load to the sky.
[C]Sun comes down with a [Dm]burning glow
[C]Mingles my sweat with the [G7]earth be[C]low.

[C]Oh, island [F]in the sun,
[G7]Willed to me by my [C]father's hand
[C]All my days I will [F]sing and praise
Of your [G7]forests, waters, your [C]shining sands.

[C]I see woman on [F]bended knees
[G7]Cutting cane for her [C]family.
[C]I see man at the [Dm]water side
[C]Casting nets at the [G7]surging [C]tide.

[C]Oh, island [F]in the sun,
[G7]Willed to me by my [C]father's hand
[C]All my days I will [F]sing and praise
Of your [G7]forests, waters, your [C]shining sands.

[C]I hope the day will [F]never come
That [G7]I can't awake to the [C]sound of a drum,
[C]Never let me miss [Dm]carnival
With caly[C]pso songs philo[G7]sophi[C]cal.

[C]Oh, island [F]in the sun,
[G7]Willed to me by my [C]father's hand
[C]All my days I will [F]sing and praise
Of your [G7]forests, waters, your [C]shining sands.

This is my island in the sun
Where my people have toiled since time begun.
I may sail on many a sea
Her shores will always be home to me.

Oh, island in the sun,
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing and praise
Of your forests, waters, your shining sands.

As morning breaks the heaven on high
I lift my heavy load to the sky.
Sun comes down with a burning glow
Mingles my sweat with the earth below.

Oh, island in the sun,
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing and praise
Of your forests, waters, your shining sands.

I see woman on bended knees
Cutting cane for her family.
I see man at the water side
Casting nets at the surging tide.

Oh, island in the sun,
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing and praise
Of your forests, waters, your shining sands.

I hope the day will never come
That I can't awake to the sound of a drum,
Never let me miss carnival
With calypso songs philosophical.

Oh, island in the sun,
Willed to me by my father's hand
All my days I will sing and praise
Of your forests, waters, your shining sands.
