Beautiful Isle O'er The Sea

 

E - A - B7 - E    - E - A - B7 - E

[E]I will not be your sweet[A]heart

I'll [B7]tell you the reason [E]why

My mother always [A]told me

To [B7]pass a drunkard [E]by

 

[E]Beautiful isle o'er the [A]sea, O'er the sea

[B7]Beautiful isle o'er the [A]sea, O'er the [E]sea

Beautiful isle o'er the [A]sea, O'er the sea

There's [B7]someone waiting for [E]me

E - A - B7 - E    - E - A - B7 - E

Now young man I will tell you

If you want my heart my hand

You better quit your drinking

And be a sober man

CHORUS    + E - A - B7 - E    - E - A - B7 - E

Go prove yourself be faithful

Go prove yourself be true

And sometime in the future

Perhaps I'll marry you

CHORUS    + E - A - B7 - E    - E - A - B7 - E

CHORUS
