the song is basically a descending open chord
pattern that changes tempo during choruses and
interludes it's really simple, just stay in the rhythm
and I might add, a great song by a, sadly, little known songwriter

D                 C#m6
you can leave the island
C                      Bm7
but you can't leave my love
G                 F#m6             Em7sus4
you can't take back what you gave away
D                 C#m6
you can leave the island
C                      Bm7
but you can't leave my heart
G                 F#m6             Em7sus4
you know the memory remains
       D
of the moonlit nights
        C#m6
and the stars were high
            C                          Bm7
you can see Savannah shine across the waves
 D
dance along the shore
C#m6
take our time for more
C                                      Bm7
and all along you know our hearts will sing
D                 C#m6
you can leave the island
C                      Bm7
but you can't leave my love
G                 F#m6             Em7sus4
you can't take back what you gave away
D                 C#m6
you can leave the island
C                      Bm7
but you can't leave my heart
G                 F#m6             Em7sus4
you know the memory remains
D            C#m6
and I loved you
C                      Bm7
D            C#m6
thinkin of you
C                      Bm7
and I never will forget
         D
and the feeling
        C#m6
had me reeling
        C
I can't believe it
        Bm7
it's so easy
G       F#m6     Em7sus4
to be free
        D
of the moonlit nights
        C#m6
and the stars were high
     C                               Bm7
you can see Savannah shine across the waves
        D
I know you must move on
     C#m6
and I will carry on
            C          Bm7
as long as the memory remains
D                 C#m6
you can leave the island
C                      Bm7
but you can't leave my love
G                 F#m6             Em7sus4
you can't take back what you gave away
D                 C#m6
you can leave the island
C                      Bm7
but you can't leave my heart
G                 F#m6             Em7sus4
you know the memory remains

 jam on the chords
 the rest of the lyrics are ad libbed

the feeling rarely ever fades

and how I wish the you could stay
