Intro: G C G G C G
[G]I want to go [C]back to the [G]island,
where the s[C]hrimp boats t[D]ie up to the p[G]ilin'.
[Em]Give me oysters and beer
for [A7]dinner every day of the year and I'll feel [D]fine.
I'll feel [D7]fine.
[C]'Cause I [D] want to [G]be there,
I want to [C]go back down and [D]lie beside the [Em]sea there.
With a [C]tin cup for a chalice, fill it [G]up with [B7]good red [Em]wine,
and I'm a' [A7]chewin', on a [D]honey-suckle [G]vine.[C] [G]
Yeah, now, the sun goes slidin' 'cross the water;
Sailboats, they go searchin' for the breeze.
Salt air it ain't thin, I can stick right to you skin,
and make you feel fine. It makes you feel fine.
Yes, and now you heard my strange proposal;
Get that pack gear up and let's move.
I want to be there 'fore the day, tries to steal away
and leave us behind. I've made up my mind.
