VERSE 1

A                        E7 
Somewhere the sun is shining,

                        A 
Somewhere the songbirds dwell;

                      E 
Hush, then, thy sad repining,

B7                    E 
God lives, and all is well.

E7         A 
Somewhere, somewhere,

F#m       B7      E7 
Beautiful isle of somewhere!

A           E              A     D 
Land of the true, where we live anew,

A                 E7  A 
Beautiful isle of somewhere!

VERSE 2

A                        E7 
Somewhere the day is longer,

                      A 
Somewhere the task is done;

                       E 
Somewhere the heart is stronger,

B7                    E 
Somewhere the guerdon won.

E7         A 
Somewhere, somewhere,

F#m       B7      E7 
Beautiful isle of somewhere!

A           E              A     D 
Land of the true, where we live anew,

A                 E7  A 
Beautiful isle of somewhere!

VERSE 3

A                         E7 
Somewhere the load is lifted,

                 A 
Close by an open gate;

                         E 
Somewhere the clouds are rifted,

B7                   E 
Somewhere the angels wait.

E7         A 
Somewhere, somewhere,

F#m       B7      E7 
Beautiful isle of somewhere!

A           E              A     D 
Land of the true, where we live anew,

A                 E7  A 
Beautiful isle of somewhere!
