Bridge:
       Bm          G                 D
If you follow your heart, you will understand
            Bm           G                 A7
That there’s no place on earth, like these islands

E
Strolling along on a moonlit night 
D
Telling stories by the firelight
A
Breathing the ocean breeze
           E
Of these islands


E
Where rivers flow out to the sea
D
And returns to the lands, as it rains on me
A
There’s no other feelings like
                E
Life in these islands

D A             E    B A               E
Life in these islands, life in these islands

Life in these islands….
