UkeOke: White Sandy Beach of Hawaii

A most beautiful song by an incredible artist, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. Posted here because my husband loves it, and this is the best version of the video I’ve seen.

Audio interview on NPR: http://www.npr.org/player/v2/mediaPlayer.html?action=1&t=1&islist=false&id=131812500&m=131842319

Written version: http://www.npr.org/2010/12/06/131812500/israel-kamakawiwo-ole-the-voice-of-hawaii

And some chords for me to reference (although I’m still working on finding all the right chords):

WHITE SANDY BEACH OF HAWAII

C
I saw you in my dreams

We were walking hand in hand
F Fm C
On a white, sandy beach of Hawaii

We were playing in the sun

We were having so much fun
F Fm C
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii

G7
The sound of the ocean
F G7
soothes my restless soul

The sound of the ocean
F G G7
rocks me all night long

C
Those hot long summer days

Lying there in the sun
F Fm C
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii

G7
The sound of the ocean
F G7
soothes my restless soul

The sound of the ocean
F G G7 G
rocks me all night looooooong

C
Last night in my dreams

I saw your face again
F ?Fm
We were there in the sun
Fm C
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii
