Sweet Lady of Waihole

F
Early  in the morning, she would gather all her island fruits
                     F7             Bb
And pack them as she starts another day
Bbm                          F                   Dm  
Carefully she makes her way, beside the mountain stream
       Gm               C7            F   C7
As she sings and island chant of long ago

Chorus
F                Bb                   F
Sweet lady of Waihole, sitting by the Highway
              Gm    C7                     F       C7
Selling her papaya, and her green and ripe banana


F
Walking down her damp and rocky road her humble wagon stops
                         F7                 Bb
She watched the sun peek through the valley sky
Bbm                                           
Smiles and wipes the sweat up from her brow
F         Dm                 Gm
Continues on, and starts her journey through
    C7             F  C7
The highway rising sun

Chorus

F                 
Later in the evening, she would gather all her island fruits
                     F7           Bb
And pack them as she ends another day
Bbm                         F                   Dm
Carefully she makes her way beside the mountain stream
       Gm               C7            F   C7
As she sings and island chant of long ago

Chorus
