Verse 1:
  Cmaj7                                  Dm7
I love this place I call my home it’s my endless paradise
     Cmaj7                             Dm7             
There is no other quite this because Hawaii is so nice
  Cmaj7                                Dm7
I live my life inna de island style no other way can do
   Cmaj7                              Dm7
And if I ever change it up I would be so lost and confused

          Am7                    Em7
I’m gonna keep myself rooted, no other place is suited
Dm7                   (Dm7 - Em7)
For a native like me
Fmaj7                   Em7
Keep my feet planted, Hawaiian I am branded
    F
You know there ain’t no changin’ me


Chorus:    Cmaj7                 Dm7
‘Cause I’m homegrown, from these islands
   Yes I’m homegrown, from these islands
   Yes I’m homegrown, from these islands
   Yes I’m homegrown, from these islands, yeah

Verse 2: (Cmaj7, Dm7)
Yeah, I wake up in the morning, smell the sweet fragrance
I think I’m gonna take a ride
It’s perfect for the keiki, they’ll appreciate it greatly
Grow up with a sense of pride
The teachings of our people through the generations
Are still alive and well today
So let’s keep the culture strong, continue moving forward
Aloha is the only way
