Isle Of Hope Isle Of Tears Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Recorded by Celtic Thunder, Written by Brendan Graham. Also recorded by Mylene Ford, The Celtic Tenors, Celtic Woman / Thunder, Sean Keane and the man himself Brendan Graham.

[G]On the first day[D] on January,
[C]Eighteen ninety-[G]two,
They[C] opened Ellis[Am] Island and they[C] let
The people[D] through.
[G]And the first to cross the[D] treshold
Of that[C] isle of hope and[G] tears,
[C]Was Annie Moore from[Am] Ireland
Who was[C] all of fifteen[D] years.

CHORUS:

[C]Isle of hope, isle of[D7] tears,
Isle of[G] freedom, isle of[Em] fears,
But it's[C] not the isle you left[D] behind.
[C]That isle of hunger, isle of[D7] pain,
Isle you'll [G]never see a[Em]gain
But the[C] isle of home is al[D]ways[C] on your[G] mind.

In a little bag she carried
All her past and history,
And her dreams for the future
In the land of liberty.
And courage is the passport
When your old world disappears
But there's no future in the past
When you're fifteen years

Chorus

When they closed down Ellis Island
In nineteen fourty-three,
Seventeen million people
Had come there for sanctuary.
And in Springtime when I came here
And I stepped onto it's piers,
I thought of how it must have been
When you're fifteen years.

Chorus
