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. copyright Stewart Ross RG
