I Was An Island by Allison Weiss
Tabbed By Titanium Drew


Capo 5th Fret


Simple song with all of four chords basically.  The chord marked "G2" on here is just a pretty
common transitional G Maj (half step down on low E string and A string opened, like this):

 G   G2
-3- -3-|
-3- -3-|
-0- -0-|
-0- -0-|
-2- -0-|
-3- -2-|

The strumming is pretty easy to pick up from the song and there are only a couple strum patterns
throughout.  There is a nice little instrumental solo in the middle and she did an 
version
on what I think was her first youtube video of this song.  It is basically just a few 
using
the chord shapes themselves.  Look it up on youtube, it should be the first result if 
seach for
this song.  It is a nice addition to a easy, pretty song.  Enjoy  -TD

but your boat in my sand  hand in my hand  heart in my songs

        G                     Em
I was a fighter  and I was so brave

      C                                                  D
but I lowered my sword  and you held me and swore  you'd stay stay stay

C                D             G            G2    Em

'til you came to town  pushed me around  and showed me what love was

        G                         Em
I was a wolf dear  apart from the pack

        C                                          D
but you answered my cry  in the dead of the night  told me that you had my back
