Intro: G C G G C G
G C G
I want to go back to the island,
C D G
where the shrimp boats tie up to the pilin'.
Give me oysters and beer
for dinner every day of the year and I'll feel fine.
I'll feel fine.
C D G
'Cause I want to be there,
C D Em
I want to go back down and lie beside the sea there.
C G B7 Em
With a tin cup for a chalice, fill it up with good red wine,
A7 D G C G
and I'm a' chewin', on a honey-suckle vine.
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.
(repeat chorus and fade)
