My Home, Cape Breton

{My Island Home}
{st:by; Brad McDougall}
{c:August 24/07}

[E]I call this place a pa[G]radise
I[D] never want to r[A]oam
Th[E]rough sunset and sun[G]rise
I [D] call this place my [A] home
T[E]he place where I gr[G]ew up in
I ne[D]ver want to pa[A]rt
S[E]he's called Cape Breton Is[G]land
The is[D]land of my he[A]art

[E]       [G]      [D]      [A]

Fr[E]om the great fortress at Lou[G]isburg
To the sh[D]ores of Inv[A]erness
Sh[E]e'll treat you kind
A[G]nd take you in
H[D]er people are the be[A]st

I[E]n days of old S[G]he mined the coal
Sy[D]dney made the st[A]eel
A[E]nd now it's just good me[G]mories
N[D]o more driving wh[A]eel

[E]   [G]    [D]    [A]

T[E]he lakes of Bradoor
La[G]ke Anislie
T[D]he Mira river t[A]oo
Fi[E]sh and swim, wa[G]terski
Me[D]et a friend ot t[A]wo


W[E]hen you go down t[G]o her shores
Yo[D]u'll see what I me[A]an
Br[E]eath in her sw[G]eet salt air
G[D]o swimming in her s[A]ea

O[E]f all the places i[G]n the world
Sh[D]e's the one for m[A]e
I[E] never want to[G] leave you
M[D]y island in the s[A]ea

[E]     [G]     [D]     [A].

{eoc}
[/song]


Just a little tune about my Island home. I think it needs a chorus to complete it.


.....Badeye.

I must have done something wrong as it did not come out "all nice and purdy"  ooops.

Re: My Home, Cape Breton

Hey Brad - I like it but I think you're right. A chorus might break it up a bit. Great sentiment though

Re: My Home, Cape Breton

Thanks Jets, I'll work on one. How are things in Gainesville?
Do you have a song about your home??


Have a good day...Badeye.

Re: My Home, Cape Breton

I've kind of bounced around for a few years with the military but I think Gainesville, where I live now, is nice but it doesn't feel quite like the home I remember from when I was a kid. That was Asheville, NC and it was pretty nice but most of the people who live there now are either retired or part of service industry which is a nice way of saying it's tough to make a good living there unless unless you already have money. I kind of wish I had what you have: a one place you think of as home. For me home is more about the people that the place.

Re: My Home, Cape Breton

Yes Jets a real home is a nice place. I had to leave it for twenty plus years to find my way in life but found my way home. This place will be my end, hopefully not for a while though.

Take Care...Badeye.

Hi Badeye,
lovely song about your home place! Between your self and Mhebert i will be getting the travel bug again!
The link you left i played! It sounds very Celtic in its rendition. Has to be Irish genes there somewhere! Beautiful video also..

Well done Badeye! Say "Hi" to Gem from me!
