Harry Belafonte – Island In The Sun chords

C FThis is my island in the sun
G7 CWhere my people have toiled since time begun.
C DmI may sail on many a sea
C G7 CHer shores will always be home to me.
C FOh, island in the sun,
G7 CWilled to me by my father's hand
C FAll my days I will sing and praise
G7 COf your forests, waters, your shining sands.
C FAs morning breaks the heaven on high
G7 CI lift my heavy load to the sky.
C DmSun comes down with a burning glow
C G7 CMingles my sweat with the earth be low.
C FI see woman on bended knees
G7 CCutting cane for her family.
C DmI see man at the water side
C G7 CCasting nets at the surging tide.
C FI hope the day will never come
G7 CThat I can't awake to the sound of a drum,
C DmNever let me miss carnival
C G7 CWith calypso songs philosophical.
