Charts, TAB, and Guitar Pro Files are only made available to our TARGET Members Islands in the Stream is a song written by the Bee Gees and sung by American country music artists Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton.

The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States, giving both Rogers and Parton their second pop number-one hit.

In this lesson we take a look at how the Bee Gees performed it as well as Robin Gibb's version singing it by himself. Their arrangement is done in the key of C and is relatively easy to play.

It also covers Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton's duet version, which is progression wise the same, but it includes a key change when getting into the female part, resulting in a new set of chords.
