Isle of Capri
T&M: Will Groz
'twas on the Isle of Capri that I found her,
beneth the shade of an old valnut tree.
Oh, I can still se the flowers blooming 'round her,
C G7 C
where we met on the Isle of Capri.
She was as sweet as the rose of the dawning,
but somehow Fate hadn't ment her for me.
And tho' I sailed with the tide in the morning,
C G7 C C7
still my heart's on the Isle of Capri.
Summertime was nearly over,
blue Italian skies above.
I said: "Lady, I'm a rover,
D7 G G7
can you spare a sweet word of love?"
She whispered softly: T'is best not to linger",
then as I kissed her, her hand I could see.
She wore a plain golden ring on her finger,
C G7 C
'twas goodbye to the Isle of Capri.
Summertime was nearly over...
