Somewhere On The Island Song Lyrics And Chords. Written and recorded by Gary Fjellgaard regarding the clear cutting of lumber in western Canada

[C] Look at all these Islands
all Granite walls and [F] sandstone
See the mighty [G] evergreens
Standing by the [C] shore
[C] How those waves have pounded
Down thru the [F] ages
Somewhere thru [G] eternity
It’s gone for ever [C] more
 
 
chorus
[C] And I can hear a [G] heartbeat. somewhere on the ocean
Somewhere on the [F] changing [C] tide
I can hear the wind [G] so wild. shouting cross the [C] sand
And I can hear an [G] eagle. screaming of an eagle
Somewhere in the F] distant [C] sky
I hear somebody [G] crying. someone softly crying
Somewhere on the [C] Island

 
[C] Look at all the old men
All watered eyed and [F] shaking
Still dreaming bout the [G] olden days          
Behind their mystic [C] door
[C] When they lived upon the Island
And never made a [F] footprint
They just barely touched their [G] moccasins
Upon the forest [C] floor
chorus

 

[C] Someone said that's progress
Someone said [F] destruction
Someone said that I don't [G] really care
I just don't give a [C] damn
[C] Look at all the children
Trust upon their [F] faces
Hoping for a [G] legacy
Untouched by foolish [C] hands.
chorus.
