Island
   ------The Allman Brothers Band

Sometimes it seems like only yesterday
Other times more than a million years
Oh, little girl ... sweeter than the angels
When I think of her I laugh ... and drown in my own tears
Ohhh!

You drew your first breath ... so close to me
Now we've been apart for years and years
She can wash the land away ... tide's turnin' every day
All I really came to say is ... I still love you my sweet Island

Maybe time will someday build a bridge for us
Somewhere further down the line
As the time to call arise ... I know
But for you this song ... to show you who's on my mind

She can wash the land away ... tide's turnin' every day
All I really came to say is ... I still love you my sweet Island
Oh!

Whatever they might say ... about my silence
Remember I'm an island too
We're connected by more than an ocean ... my blood runs in you!

She can wash the land away ... tide's turnin' everyday
All I really came to say is ... come see me, babe
I still love you, my sweet Island
Ohhh!
I still love you, my sweet Island
