Island in the Sun

Lord Burgess, Harry Belafonte / Harry Belafonte (1957)

E !Bemerkung A
This is my island in the sun,
B7 E
Where my people have toiled since time begun.
E F#m
I may sail on many a sea,
E B7 E
Her shores will always be home to me.
E A
Oh, island in the sun,
B7 E
Willed to me by my father's hand.
E A
All my days I will sing and praise
B7 E
Of your forest, waters, your shining sands.
 
As morning breaks the heaven on high, 
I lift my heavy load to the sky. 
Sun comes down with a burning glow, 
Mingles my sweat with the earth below. 
Oh, island in the sun, 
Willed to me by my father's hand 
All my days I will sing and praise 
Of your forest, waters, your shining sands. 
 
I see woman on bended knees 
Cutting cane for her family. 
I see man at the water side 
Casting nets at the surging tide. 
Oh, island in the sun, 
Willed to me by my father's hand 
All my days I will sing and praise 
Of your forest, waters, your shining sands. 
 
F A#
I hope the day will never come,
C7 F
That I can't awake to the sound of drum,
F Gm
Never let me miss carnival,
F C7 F
With calypso songs philosophical.
F A#
Oh, island in the sun,
C7 F
Willed to me by my father's hand
F A#
All my days I will sing and praise
C7 F
Of your forest, waters, your shining sands.
