The Dark Island
(Stewart Ross)

In the years long ago
When I first left my home
I was young and I wanted
The whole world to roam;
But now I am older
And wiser, you see,
For that lovely dark island
Is calling to me.

cho: O, I've wandered away
     From the land of my birth,
     And been roaming around
     To the ends of the earth,
     Still my heart is at home
     In that land far away
     That lovely dark island
     Where memories stray.
One day I'll return
To that far-distant shore,
And from that dear island
I'll wander no more.
'Til the day that I die
I will no longer roam
For that lovely dark island
Will be my last home.
