A7 A7+5 D Edim A7 D G `Twas on the Isle of Capri that I found her, A7 D B7 Em7 A7 Beneath the shade of an old walnut tree; Em7 Edim A7 Oh, I can still see the flow'rs bloomin' round her Edim D A7 D A7 Where we met on the Isle of Capri. A7 A7+5 D Edim A7 D G She was as sweet as a rose at the dawning, A7 D Cdim Em7 A7 But somehow fate hadn't meant her for me; Em7 Edim A7 And though I sailed with the tide in the morning, Edim D A7 D A7 Still my heart's on the Isle of Capri. Bridge: G G/F# D G Edim D Summertime was nearly over, blue Italian sky above; G G/F# D E7 Bm7-5 A7 I said "Lady, I'm a rover, can you spare a sweet word of love?" A7 A7+5 D Edim A7 D G She whispered softly "It's best not to linger." A7 D Cdim Em7 A7 And then as I kissed her hand I could see, Em7 Edim A7 She wore a lovely meatball on her finger Edim D A7 D 'Twas goodbye at the Villa Capri.
