“ verse #1 ”

Am Gm
A Stolen scene from Casablanca
Am Gm
with gypsies in the wings
Am Gm
a golden candlelight’s escaping
Am Gm
as it whispers secret things
Am Gm
coconuts are crashing
Am Gm
through the cactus and the jade
Am Gm
meanwhile seven sacred sisters
Am Gm
are watching moonbows fade
…………………….

“ bridge ”

{ C x 2 – D x 12 } x 4 …. Gm x 4

……………………..

“ chorus ”

Gm C Gm Fm Gm

Another shell upon the shore
My former self is washing up and wanting more
Another shell upon the shore
You give me shivers Your freedom on the dance floor
Your freedom on the dance floor
Your freedom on the dance floor
Gm x 12
——————————————————————————————

* above is “one complete pass” of the entire song structure
—————————————————————————————

Instrumental verse #1 / complete pass
……………………………………………..

verse #2 w/ bridge & chorus

Now I’m rolling on a deep groove
as my skateboard’s sliding down
Baldwin Avenue is slipping
into Paia Town
A land of coconut milk and honey
slap back and circumstance
with cosmic chaos in the tropics
beneath Pueo’s glance

bridge – chorus
……………………………………………..

Instrumental verse #2 / complete pass
……………………………………………..

verse #3 w/ bridge & chorus

Now the lizards in the lounge chair
as the Eastern winds they trade
You’ll find me searching for the substance
in Paia’s Nightshade
A little glimpse of North Shore Maui
where the gypsies surf the wind
and golden sunsets are escaping
as their chanting sacred things

bridge – chorus

……………………………………………..

extended outro jam

Gm … very long
