    Island In The Sun:
    Harry Belafonte

    Verse1:
    C F
    This is my island in the sun,
    G7 C
    Where my people have toiled since time begun.
    C Dm
    I may sail on many a sea
    C G7 C
    Her shores will always be home to me.

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

    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

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

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

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

    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

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