I Am An Island   Merle Haggard

Heres another good Haggard song. I just worked these chords out. I think
they're right but may need changed alittle.
My cowpie newsletter is about the only email I look forward to getting. Keep
em coming.

(G) They say no man is an island
(C) Thats all I hear from my old (G) friends
They say I should forget you
And (C) learn to love (D) again
But (G) I don't need nobody
(C) Tryin to tell me what to (G) do
And I don't want nobody else
(D) If I can't have (G) you.

(G) I am an (C) island, I just (Am) want to be (G) alone
Time means nothing to a (D) stone
I am an (G) island
I am an (C) island, I'm (Am) driftin on the (G) sea
Till you come back to (D) me
I am an (G) island

(G) I've boarded up the windows
(C)Locked and bolted all the (G) doors
I don't want nobody
Comin (C) round to see me (D) anymore
I (G) just wanna  hold your picture
(C) Lose my mind in your sweet (G) perfume
Sit here in the shadows
Starin (D) out the window of our (G) room
