One Particular Harbor
======================
By Jimmy Buffett and Bobby Holcomb

Intro:  E     E A B  B A E  (repeat)

E         A  B
IA ORA TE NA-TURA                 [English translation: below]
  B   A E         A  B
E MEA A-ROFA TEIE AO NEI
E         A  B
IA ORA TE NA-TURA
  B   A E         A  B
E MEA A-ROFA TEIE AO NEI

  E                      D
I know I don't get there often enough
       E               D
But God knows I surely try
       E             D
It's a magic kind of medicine
        A       G            E
That no doctor     could prescribe

          E                    D
I used to rule my world from a pay phone
    E                D
And ships out on the sea
        E
But now times are rough
         D
And I got too much stuff
       A           G           E
Can't explain  the likes   of me

Chorus:
      E               A   B          E
     But there's this one particular harbor
        A       B      E
     So far but yet so near
             A       B            E    A
     Where I see the days as they fade away
         A       B      E
     And finally   disappear
                                    B
          But now I think about the good times
                                E
          Down in the Caribbean sunshine
                                   B
          In my younger days I was so bad
                                 B   A  E
          Laughin' about all the fun we had
                                       B
          I've seen enough to feel the world spin
                                          E
          Mixin' different oceans meetin' cousins
                                         B
          Listen to the drummers and the night sounds
                                         B     A  E
          Listen to the singers make the world go round

(SOLO [repeats chorus chords])

IA ORA TE NATURA
E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI
IA ORA TE NATURA
E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI

Lakes below the mountains
Flow into the sea
Like oils applied to canvas
They permeate through me

And there's that one particular harbor
Sheltered from the wind
Where the children play on the shore each day
And all are safe within

A most mysterious calling harbor
So far but yet so near
Where I see the day when my hair's full gray
And I finally disappear

IA ORA TE NATURA               [translation:]
E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI            NATURE LIVES (LIFE TO NATURE)
IA ORA TE NATURA                   HAVE PITY FOR THE EARTH
E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI            (LOVE THE EARTH)

UA PAU TE MAITAI NO TE FENUA       BOUNTY OF THE LAND IS EXHAUSTED
TE ZAI NOA RA TE ORA O TE MITIE    BUT THERE'S STILL ABUNDANCE
                                   IN THE SEA

The chords in the chorus are almost completely inaccurate (there should only be an "E" that resolves to a "B" for each line)--three stars.

**Also, you could just rearrange nearly every "B" and "E" in the chorus, instead of my previous correction.

I think it is good. I'd suggest a correction to the chords for the last lines of each phrase in the chorus (Below). They are listed as B - A - E.
When I play it, it sure sounds like it should be A - B - E.
Just make a quick reverse and it works for me.. :)
Just my thoughts... Hope this helps.
I'll give you 4 stars, because I didn't have to sit down and start tabbing this song from scratch in order to play it.. :)

Laughin' about all the fun we had
Listen to the singers make the world go round
