The Dark Island.

C                        F          C
Away to the Westward I'm longing to be
C                     Em       C           G
Where the beauties of heaven unfold by the sea
G                                   F/C          C   
Where the sweet purple heather runs fragrant and free

On a hill top high above the Dark Island.

Oh Isle of my childhood I'm dreaming of thee
C                     Em       C        G
As the steamer leaves Oban and passes Tiree
G                                F/C         C
Soon I'll capture the magic that lingers for me
C                        G7           C 
When I'm back once more upon the Dark Island

C                             F           C
So gentle the sea breeze that ripples the bay
C                          Em         C              G
Where the stream joins the ocean, and young children play
G                                  F/C          C
On the strand of pure silver, I'll welcome each day
C                     G7            C
And I'll roam forever more the Dark Island

C                        F             C
True gem of the Hebrides bathed in the light
C                Em           C           G
Of the midsummer dawning that follows the night
G                                F/C         C    
How I yearn for the cries of the seagulls in flight
C                     G7           C
As they circle high above the Dark Island
