Em7-5 (0201)  Fm6 (1213)  Ab (5343)

C               Em            Em7-5                A7
I sit somewhere along the bay and stare at islands far away
Dm                   Fm6        D7              Dm7  G7
Their gray and misty outlines appear way out to sea
C                    Em             Em7-5                      A7
But clouds are never what they seem and far off winds dissolve my dreams
Dm                Fm6      Dm7     G7       C  G7
I do believe this ocean is far too wide for me

C             Em         Em7-5               A7
With Honolulu on my mind and someone there I left behind
Dm                     Fm6        D7              Dm7   G7
I wish that there were someway to walk across the sea
C                Em          Em7-5             A7
It seems to me I always lose when fighting any homesick blues
Dm                Fm6      Dm7     G7       C    
I do believe this ocean is far too wide for me

Bridge:
Am                D7                  G
I wish I could be watching those blue waters flow
       F                       C
As the tradewinds blow all the clouds away
Ab                                       Eb
And you would be there, sweet and lovely by my side                      
       F                       C               G7
As the sea birds glide and the palm trees sway

C                   Em         Em7-5                  A7
But there is little I can do except to dream when I’m feeling blue
Dm                      Fm6              D7               Dm7  G7
It seems that there are some things that are not meant to be
C             Em           Em7-5                            A7
As I get up I feel a chill what this place needs is getting used to still
Dm                Fm6      Dm7     G7       C   Dm7 Fm6 C
I do believe this ocean is far too wide for me
