An Island  Devendra Banhart

Song: an island
Album: nino rojo (2004)
Cmaj7 G (x2)
[Cmaj7]All my fingers ran off and I, I just couldn't follow th[G]em
[Cmaj7]Your eyelash was an island, and your eyes were someone's fr[G]iend
Who could there have [Am]been oh oh oh [G]woh
Well i heard it [Am]was a real sweet [G]thing
N[Cmaj7]ow when my smells grew some more smells,
and I just couldn't smell them [G]all la de da de da de dum
I smell my [Cmaj7]sister in the winter and my father in the [G]fall
Cross sand and [Am]snow oh oh oh [G]woh
A tired [Am]moon, oh oh oh [G]who
Am G(single strum)
Oh oh oh who...
