Paul Brady – Island chords

Chords
Transpose:
        Another tune I couldn't find on here, so have subbed how I play it,
        the Drun is just a D chord played slowly down then back up,
        play with it yourself, see what feels and sounds right for you.
        I have probably made a pile of mistakes on this one, but if it
        prompts someone else to submit a better version, everyone wins.

          As always any mistukes, feck ups or otherwise are mine,
          
                   if you like it,  go on,  go mad RATE IT !
                                         - flatwound -

D A D A They say the skies of Lebanon are burning
D A D A Those mighty cedars bleeding in the heat
D A D AThey're showing pictures on the tele-vision
D A DrunWomen and children dying in the street
GNow we're still at it in our own place
D A DrunStill trying to reach the future through the past, Still tryin' to
G G (TACET)Carve tomorrow from a tombstone
A D GBut hey don't listen to me, This wasn't meant to be no sad song
A D A DWe've heard too much of that before
A G A DRight now I only want to be here with you 'til the morning dew comes falling
G A D A DI wanna take you to the island and trace your footprints in the sand
A And in the evening when the sun goes down
G A D DWe'll make love to the sound of the ocean
D A D AThey're raising battles over by the markets
D A D AWhitewashing slogans on the shipyard wall
D A D AWitchdoctors praying for a mighty showdown
D A D runThe way a holy flag is gonna fall
G D A D runUp here we sacrifice our children,To feed the,Worn out dreams of yesterday
G G (TACET)And teach them "Dying will lead us into Glory"
A D GBut hey don't listen to me, This wasn't meant to be a sad song
A D A DWe've heard too much of that before
D A G A DRight now I only wanna be here with you 'til the morning dew comes falling
CHORUS....I wanna take you to the island etc

G G G GAs we go marching down the road to freedom... Freedom
