Islands by Young the Giant Ukulele Chords

That’s my cover of this amazing song by Young the Giant and these are the exact chords I
used. I tried to keep that same open the session feeling it had.

I know that in my cover, the strumming rhythm I use for the last half of the song is
different than the rhythm in the orignial version but that’s because in one part, I could
play that rhythm and sing at the same aaaand it’s also easier that way xD. Well I hope
this helps anyone! 🙂

Five days
Near your island
Off the coast

Five ways
You were my lover
Of the tide

In rhyme

Oh, all in the glow I’ll find you waiting
Oh, has it been so long now, I
Oh, I thought you knew that I’d be coming
The way you move, the foreign groove, at night

I could never
I could never hold you

C-Bm7 (1x)

Watch it rise up, where you hide your pearls
Feel it pile up, where you cast those stones you wear
Am7 G Am7
When no one’s home, do they feel cold on your bones
G Am7 G
All the years I’ve missed your warmth,
Have you missed my warmth?
On your island
