I will live my life as a lobsterman's wife on an island in the blue bay.
A                    E           A7             D
He will take care of me, he will smell like the sea,
     A           E                 A
And close to my heart he'll always stay.


A                 E               A         D             A
I will bear three girls all with strawberry curls, little Ella and
E         A
Nelly and Faye.
A                       E             A7            D
While I'm combing their hair, I will catch his warm stare
       A      E          A
On our island in the blue bay.


     E        E7             D       A
Far away far away, I want to go far away.
     E                       A
To a new life on a new shore line.
          E         E7          D          A
Where the water is blue and the people are new.
    E            D - hold -  
To another island, in another life.

There's a boy next to me and he never will be anything but a boy at the bar.
                     E               A7         D
And I think he's the tops, he's where everything stops.
      A        E             A
How I love to love him from afar.
        A                E          A       D         A
When he walks right pass me then I finally see on this bar stool I can't 
E
stay.
        A         E         A7          D
So I'm taking my frown to a far distant town
       A      E         A
On an island in the blue bay.

Where the water is blue and the people are new.

To another island, in another life.

I want to go far away, far away.

Where the water is blue and the people are new.

To another life, to another life.

To another shore line
