About this tab version
The chords are best on this version and the words are correct. In my review of other contributions, I couldn't find one that had both the correct chords and lyrics. In addition, the format of this submission is far easier to play, especially around a campfire. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Calypso   
Words and Music by John Denver, 1975
Lyrics and chords are correct.

A                         A6
To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean
    Amaj7                  A           Bm/A
To ride on the crest of a wild raging storm
    A                      A6
To work in the service of life and living
     Amaj7         A                        Bm/A
In search of the answers to the questions unknown
       A                        A6
To be part of the movement and part of the growing
Amaj7      A              Em7/A (open for two bars)
Part of beginning to understand

CHORUS
D                A
Aye Calypso the places you've been to
       D                   A
The things that you've shown us
     E           A
The stories you tell
D                A
Aye Calypso, I sing to your spirit
     D             A            E7
The men who have served you so long and so well

             E               D     A
Hi - dee  - ay  -- ee  -   ooo------

            E            D        A
do  - dle - oh   ---  do do do do do

              E          D      A
do - dle  -  ay  -  ee  ----------

           E             Dsus4  D   A    D/A   A   D/A
do-dle  - ay    -  ee.


          A                          A6
Like the dolphin who guides you, you bring us beside you
    Amaj7                     A           Bm/A
To light up the darkness and show us the way
     A                          A6
For though we are strangers in your silent world
   Amaj7         A                        Bm/A
To live on the land we must learn from the sea
       A                    A6
To be true as the tide and free as a wind swell
Amaj7       A                  Em7/A (open for two bars)
Joyful and loving in letting it be

CHORUS
D                A
Aye Calypso the places you've been to
       D                   A
The things that you've shown us
     E           A
The stories you tell
D                A
Aye Calypso, I sing to your spirit
     D             A            E7
The men who have served you so long and so well

             E               D     A
Hi - dee  - ay  -- ee  -   ooo------

            E            D        A
do  - dle - oh   ---  do do do do do

              E          D      A
do - dle  -  ay  -  ee  ----------

           E             Dsus4  D   A    D/A   A   D/A
do-dle  - ay    -  ee.

D                A
Aye Calypso the places you've been to
