[Intro]

Am   Dm   G   C   G/B

[Verse 1]
Am                      Dm
I thought the tropical breeze
             G
And añejo tequila
                    C   G/B
Would do what it should....
Am                            Dm
I thought that beach bonfire parties
                  G
And songs by Bob Marley
                     C   G/B     
Would make me feel good.....
   Am                            Dm
And I thought that I would find heaven
                 G                     C   G/B
If I could just get outta my neighborhood.....

[Chorus]
               F                G
But hell is an island without you
       Em                 Am
Hotel room with an ocean view
              F               G
Who knew the sky could be so blue
               Em  
And hell is an island
         Am
Without you

[Post-Chorus]
Am                             Dm
 I thought it wouldn't be the same down here
    G                       C        G/B 
So I got me a ticket on a plane down here
      Am                            Dm 
Yeah, I thought I’d be better if I came down here
     G                            C         G/B
But I ain't any better I'm just down, down here
            Am                          Dm
Yeah, the breeze and the waves and the sand ain’t doin' it for me
G                       C               G/B      Am          
.And this drink in my hand ain't doin' shit for me..
                      Dm                         G     C
Who knew the sky'd be blue and the sun would be shinin'..
   G/B         Am
And hell is an island
Dm                    G     C   G/B
 Who knew hell is an island........

[Verse 2]
     Am                    Dm 
This pineapple strawberry daiquiri's
           G                         C 
Takin' me back to the night that we met
G/B        Am
I figured you’d disappear
           Dm                         G         
But you’re just getting clearer and clearer
              C
The drunker I get
      Am                    Dm
Guess it doesn't matter how far that I go
         G                       C   G/B
Girl, I can’t get you outta my head.....

[Chorus]
               F                G
But hell is an island without you
       Em                 Am
Hotel room with an ocean view
              F               G
Who knew the sky could be so blue
               Em  
And hell is an island
         Am
Without you

[Post-Chorus]
Am                             Dm
