Twenty-Six Miles:The Four Preps:
#2 in 1958.

C          Am7    Dm7       G
Twenty-six miles across the sea,
C         Am7       Dm7         G
Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me.
C     Am7           Dm7    G    C
Santa Catalina, the island of romance, 
  Am7      Dm7      G
romance, romance, romance.

C          Am7      Dm7  G
Water all around it everywhere,
C        Am7           Dm7   G
Tropical trees and the salty air.
        C      Am7            Dm7     G        C    Dm7 C C7
But for me the thing that's a-waitin' there..romance.

   Dm7      G        C          Am     C
It seems so distant, twenty-six miles away.
F              G         C
Restin' in the water, serene.
    Dm7      G       C        Am7
I'd work for anyone, even the Navy,
          D              Dm7    G
Who would float me to my island dream.

C           Am7       Dm7       G
Twenty- six miles, so near, yet far.
C                       Am7             Dm7   G
I'd swim with just some water-wings and my guitar.
        C         Am7            Dm7         G
I could leave the wings but I'll need the guitar 
      C        Am7      Dm7      G     
for romance, romance, romance, romance.


Dm7        G      C          Am
A tropical heaven out in the ocean.
F            G         C
Covered with trees and girls.
Dm7          G          C        Am7
If I have to swim, I'll do it forever,
         D               Dm7    G
Till I'm gazin' on those island pearls.

C         Am7         Dm7       G
Forty kilometers in a leaky old boat.
C       Am7           Dm7   G
Any old thing that'll stay afloat.
     C  Am7          Dm7    G
When we arrive we'll all promote 
  C        Am7      Dm7      G
romance, romance, romance, romance.

C          Am7    Dm7       G     
Twenty-six miles across the sea.
C         Am7       F           G
Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me.(x2)(Fade)

A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
