#108 on BB Hot 100 (Bubbling Under)on
MGM Records in 1961.

INTRO:
D      Gbm  G     A      D     Gbm   G     
Oooooo-oooo-ooooo-ooooo..ooooo-ooooo-ooooo-
A
ooooo..

#1.
  D         A         G      D         G
A boy met a girl on a lonely beach and soon 
          A       D
they were holding hands.
D            Gbm          G      D         G
They fell in love on that lonely beach and kissed 
       A      D
on the silver sand.

CHORUS:
D                 Gm7                 D
Til the water was red and the day was done.
D                 Gm7                  D   A
Til the water was red from the setting sun.

#2.
     D               Gbm       G         D
They returned to the beach whenever they could
                     A        D
and stayed until the moon was bright.
D                  Gbm                G
And once they were swimming where the water was 
D                      A         D     Bb
deep and the white fin came into sight.

#3.
    Eb        Gm7        Ab Gm7          Eb
The shark had struck and disappeared and left his 
Bb         Eb
sweetheart dead.
Eb        Gm7        Ab     Eb         Bb
And as he pulled her to the shore, the boring waves 
     Eb
were red.

CHORUS:
                  Abm                     Eb
Oh, the water was red with what the shark done.
                   Abm                  Eb   B
Yes, the water was red and his love was gone.

#4.
   E                  Abm          A       E
He looked towards the water and he saw the fin so he 
A      B              E
gently put her on the sand.
E                Abm          A           E
He walked to the water with a tear in his eye and a 
A        B            E
gleaming knife in his hand.

OUTRO:
E                 Am       E
And the water was red once again..yes, the water was 
Am               E                               B
red as he walked towards his sweetheart with the fin in 
    E
his hand.
                  Am        E                        Am
And the water was red once again, yes, the water was red..(Fade.)
