Harry Belafonte - Island in the sun

(verse 1)
 C                F
This is my island in the sun
           G                       C
Where my people have toiled since time begun
Am7            Dm
I may sail on many a sea
      C                    G      C
Her shores will always be home to me

C          F  
Oh, island in the sun
 G                   C
Willed to me by my father's hand
Am7                 Dm
All my days I will sing in praise
          G                    C
Of your forest, waters, your shining sand

(verse 2)
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


(verse 3)
I see woman on bended knee
Cutting cane for her family
I see man at the waterside
Casting nets at the surging tide


(verse 4)
I pray the day will never come
When I can't awake to the sound of drum
Never let me miss carnival
With calypso songs philosophical
