the song is basically a descending open chord pattern that changes tempo during choruses and interludes it's really simple, just stay in the rhythm and I might add, a great song by a, sadly, little known songwriter D C#m6 you can leave the island C Bm7 but you can't leave my love G F#m6 Em7sus4 you can't take back what you gave away D C#m6 you can leave the island C Bm7 but you can't leave my heart G F#m6 Em7sus4 you know the memory remains D of the moonlit nights C#m6 and the stars were high C Bm7 you can see Savannah shine across the waves D dance along the shore C#m6 take our time for more C Bm7 and all along you know our hearts will sing D C#m6 you can leave the island C Bm7 but you can't leave my love G F#m6 Em7sus4 you can't take back what you gave away D C#m6 you can leave the island C Bm7 but you can't leave my heart G F#m6 Em7sus4 you know the memory remains D C#m6 and I loved you C Bm7 from the moment we first met D C#m6 thinkin of you C Bm7 and I never will forget D and the feeling C#m6 had me reeling C I can't believe it Bm7 it's so easy G F#m6 Em7sus4 to be free D of the moonlit nights C#m6 and the stars were high C Bm7 you can see Savannah shine across the waves D I know you must move on C#m6 and I will carry on C Bm7 as long as the memory remains D C#m6 you can leave the island C Bm7 but you can't leave my love G F#m6 Em7sus4 you can't take back what you gave away D C#m6 you can leave the island C Bm7 but you can't leave my heart G F#m6 Em7sus4 you know the memory remains jam on the chords the rest of the lyrics are ad libbed the feeling rarely ever fades and how I wish the you could stay
