Back To The Island  Jimmy Buffett

[Eb]Now the day is gone
[Cm]And I sit alone and think of you girl
What can[Gm] I do without[Ab] you[Bb] in my l[Eb]ife
[Cm]Wonderin' if you [Gm]love me or
[Ab]just making a fool of [Cm7]me.
Well I h[Ab]ope you u[Bb]nderstand
I just [Ab]had to go [Bb]back to the [Eb]island
And watch the sun go dow[Ab]n
Hear the sea roll i[Eb]n
I'll be thinkin' of y[Bb]ou
And how it might've be[Eb]en      [Eb7]
[Ab]Hear the nightbird cry
[Eb]Watch the sun set die
Well I [Ab]hope you u[Bb]nderstand
I just [Ab]had to go [Bb]back to the is[Eb]land
[Cm]Through all the sunny[Eb] skies
[Ab]It's rainin' in my [Eb]heart
[Gm]I know down in m[Ab]y sou[Bb]l
I'm really gonna[Eb] miss you
[Cm]But it had to end this[Eb] way
[Ab]With all the games we've[Eb] played.
Well I h[Ab]ope you [Bb]understand
I just [Ab]had to go [Bb]back to the [Eb]island
And watch the sun go do[Ab]wn
Hear the sea roll [Eb]in
I'll be thinkin' of [Bb]you
And how it might've [Eb]been  [Eb7]
Hear the nightbird cr[Ab]y
Watch the sun set di[Eb]e
Well I h[Ab]ope you un[Bb]derstand
I just h[Ab]ad to go ba[Bb]ck to the is[Eb]land ... repeat and fade
Phins Up! -
