Verse:
Em  Am            D     G   Em  Am
      When you're on a holiday
           D        G        Em  Am
You can't find the words to say
          D          G       Em  Am
All the things that come to you

      D      G       Em  Am
On an island in the sun
           D          G      Em  Am
We'll be playing and having fun
        D        G       Em
And it makes me feel so fine

           D       G   Em  Am
You don't need no memory
         D      G          Em  Am
Just a place to call your own
        D      G      Em  Am
As we drift into the zone


Chorus:
      D      G       Em  Am
On an island in the sun

And it makes me feel so fine
   Am        D       G
I can't control my brain


Bridge:

 We'll run away together

 We'll spend some time forever
C             Am          D
 We'll never feel bad anymore

  1. Saculunch

    i like 5+ and using the high Am (3002) and high Dm (5122), but for ease, high D (5222) still sounds good. i don’t know much about music theory but this sounds right in my skullsounds. for strumming, i do (Am)Dx- (Dm)Dx- (G)Dx- (C)U UDU

    • Saculunch

      if you’re real cool you can do it all barred:
      Am – 3542
      Dm – 5122
      G – 2324
      C – 3345

      but i feel like this sounds too happy

  2. daniellefry26

    I find the strum works best:

    dd- dd- uudu -dd
    (Em) (Am) (D) (G)

    then on the the bridge use:
    dd- dd
    (D) (G)

    The last line of the bridge, use the island strum: ddu-udu

  3. massive legend

    the strumming pattern- dd dd ddud dd is probably the easier strumming patter for this song hit yknow that’s just me

  4. I use ddu-dd-uudu-d

    Idk if it’s right but it sounds right to me so  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  5. PassionFruit

    I do d dud du u dudu for strumming
