[Intro]

Fmaj7 Ebmaj7 Fmaj7 Bb3/D Gm6


[Verse 1]

Fmaj7              F#m7b5    Bb3/D  Gm6 
When I was three I went to Honolulu,
Fmaj7           F#m7b5              Bb3/D  Gm6 
Dad wore aloha shirts, Mom wore a muumuu
      Bbmaj7      Abmaj7       Fmaj7
The centipedes are all that I remember
   Bbmaj7           Abmaj7            Fmaj7 
I think I dropped my toy drum in the cinders
Fmaj7         F#m7b5         Bb3/D Gm6   Fmaj7  Ebmaj7 Emaj7 Fmaj7
Down into the mouth of some volcano near Honolulu


[Verse 2]

Fmaj7              F#m7b5       Bb3/D       Gm6 
Granddaddy used to fight in the Pacific Fleet
Fmaj7           F#m7b5          Bb3/D        Gm6 
Grandma used to say the air was warm and sweet
Bbmaj7        Abmaj7           Fmaj7 
But at last we had to move back to the States
    Bbmaj7          Abmaj7           Fmaj7 
Back to the land of natural gas and rattlesnakes
Fmaj7                 F#m7b5       Bb3/D Gm6     Fmaj7   Ebmaj7  Emaj7 Fmaj7 
Granddaddy stayed and opened up a laundry out in Honolulu


[Verse 3]

   Fmaj7    F#m7b5              Bb3/D   Gm6 
My Honolulu granddaddy drove a Cadillac
   Fmaj7              F#m7b5           Bb3/D          Gm6 
He did card tricks and told us how the deck was stacked
    Bbmaj7       Abmaj7          Fmaj7 
He told us dirty jokes about the naval corps
    Bbmaj7           Abmaj7               Fmaj7 
And how one day the airplanes started up a war
Fmaj7               F#m7b5          Bb3/D Gm6  Fmaj7   Ebmaj7 Emaj7 Fmaj7
And how they buried bodies in long trenches in Honolulu


[Verse 4]

Bbmaj7       Abmaj7 Fmaj7 
Oh it used to be so nice
Bbmaj7                 Abmaj7            
When he took us on his knee 
                                 Fmaj7
And told us about that tropical paradise
         Bb3/D  Gm6        
It was alright


[Verse 5]

Fmaj7            F#m7b5    Bb3/D   Gm6 
Someday I’m going back to Honolulu
Fmaj7           F#m7b5               Bb3/D  Gm6 
I’ll wear aloha shirts, she’ll wear a muumuu
Bbmaj7          Abmaj7       Fmaj7 
Hawaii calls and who am I to stop it
Bbmaj7            Abmaj7            Fmaj7 
I think I’ll buy a new toy drum and drop it
Fmaj7        F#m7b5         Bb3/D Gm6  Fmaj7   Ebmaj7 Emaj7 Fmaj7     
Down into the mouth of some volcano in Honolulu


[Verse 6]

Fmaj7      Fmaj7 F#m7b5  Fmaj7      
Aloha ‘oe, aloha,         boys
Fmaj7      Fmaj7 F#m7b5  Fmaj7       
Aloha ‘oe, aloha         toys 
Bb3/D    Gm6  Fmaj7 Emaj7 Fmaj7        
Until we meet again
