Ku`u Home `O Kahalu`u

Composer:  Jerry Santos

D	   G                     D
I remember days when we were younger
		    G			  D
We used to catch 'o'opu in the mountain stream
		  G		    D
Round the Ko'olau hills wed ride on horseback
	       G	      D	    D7
So long ago it seems it was a dream
G			    D
Last night I dreamt I was returning
G			   D
And my heart called out to you
	       G	       D
But I fear you won't be like I left you
		A7	    D
Me kealoha ku'u home 'o kahalu'u
 
	       G		 D
I remember the days when we were wiser
		   G		    D
When our world was small enough for dreams
             G		       D
And you have lingered there my sister
	 G	       D    D7
And I no longer can it seems
G			    D
Last night I dreamt I was returning
G			   D
And my heart called out to you
	       G	       D
But I fear you won't be like I left you
		A7	    D
Me kealoha ku'u home 'o kahalu'u


A7			     D
Change is a strange thing it cannot be denied
A7				 D
It can help you find yourself or make you lose your pride
G		       D
Move with it slowly as on the road we go
G			 A7
Please do not hold on to me we all must go alone


D	       G		 D
I remember the days when we were smiling
		    G		         D
When we laughed and sang the whole night long
	   G		  D
And I will greet you as I find you
		 G		D    D7
With the sharing of a brand new song
G			    D
Last night I dreamt I was returning
G			   D
And my heart called out to you
	       G	       D
But I fear you won't be like I left you
		A7	    D
Me kealoha ku'u home 'o kahalu'u
