[Intro]
G C G D
G Em D G
 
[Verse 1]
                 G                         Em
An island in the sunlight, laughter in the rain. 
                D                               C
A whisky in the darkness, it all feels just the same.
                      G                                Em
Watch the sunset over Hynish see the twilight merge to dawn 
                          D                              C
Hear the waves caress the shoreline as the island carries on.
 
[Chorus]
         G         C             G             D
I've been walking, walking these shores all my days 
         Em         C        D              G
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves
         G         C             G             D
I've been walking, walking these shores all my days 
         Em         C        D              G
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves

[Verse 2]
                          G                                 Em
There's two lovers on the machair and they walk down to the sand
                             D                            C
Their silhouettes are on the water as they paddle hand in hand.
                          G                                     Em
And it's a game of sweet surrender when there's nothing left to say 
                           D                               C
And there are moments to remember once these days are long away.
 
[Chorus]
         G         C             G             D
I've been walking, walking these shores all my days 
         Em         C        D              G
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves
         G         C             G             D
I've been walking, walking these shores all my days 
         Em         C        D              G
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves

[Verse 3]
*slow*
                       G                               Em
So you look out on the ocean see the headlands and the strands
                    D                              C
And you wonder what horizons will shape tomorrow's plans
                              G                             Em
And through the turning of the seasons and the cycle of the days
                      D                           C
Every drink's another reason to let tomorrow sail away.
 
[Chorus]
         G         C             G             D
I've been walking, walking these shores all my days 
         Em         C        D              G
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves
         G         C             G             D
I've been walking, walking these shores all my days 
         Em         C       D              G
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves

[Bridge]
*slow*
    C              G          C               G
The surging of the ocean, the breakers on the shore
    Am                           C                D
The echoes of our bodies, To the lovers’ dream we soar.
 
[Chorus]
         G         C             G             D
I've been walking, walking these shores all my days 
         Em         C        D              G
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves
         G         C             G             D
I've been walking, walking these shores all my days 
         Em         C        D              G
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves
         G         C             G             D
I've been walking, walking these shores all my days 
         G         Em        D              G
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves
