Sand And Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 08/19/2004) (song#3401)

Warm days of sand and sunshine
When we stroll down by the bay
Is a wonderland on a far flung shore
A song of love that’s sung for evermore

Warm days of sand and sunshine
In the tradewinds of summer time
Tells me that my dreams come true
In these days of sand and sunshine
With you

Just being here with you is like a summer breeze
A breeze that makes sweet memories
A wonderland on a far flung shore
A song of love that’s sung for evermore

(Warm days of sand and sunshine)
In the tradewinds of summer time
Tells me that my dreams come true
In these days of sand and sunshine
With you



When You Find An Island Love (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2004) (song#3402)

When you find an island love
You’re all joyful and excited
It’s like the whole world’s been invited
Like a dream just alighted
When you’ve just found an island love
Under tropic stars above

When you find an island love
Your heart that never sang is singing
Maui chimes that never rang are ringing
Your once empty arms now are clinging
To your new found island love
When you find an island love

It doesn’t matter now
How you felt back then
For island love will disavow
All loneliness ever again

When you find an island love
Cloudy days won’t even phase you
Though polynesian eyes may daze you
And paradise may amaze you
When you’ve just found an island love
Under a tropic moon above

It doesn’t matter now
How you felt back then
For island love will disavow
All loneliness ever again

Cloudy days won’t even phase you
Though polynesian eyes may daze you
And paradise may amaze you
When you find an island love
When you find an island love



Dream That Came Strolling (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2004) (song#3403)

 

Where gentle waves seem to always come rolling
I thought I saw a dream come strolling
Yes, I did
Yes, I did

And as she was walking
I thought I heard her talking
Aloha, e komo mai
Which sounded grand in island sand
Of paradise

I thought I saw her hula dancing
Which was the formula for romancing
Yes, it was
Yes, it was

And when that dream was falling in my arms
I kept recalling all her island charms
There was no harm in saying Aloha, too
For that dream that came strolling
Where gentle waves were rolling
Seems to be only you

There was no harm in saying Aloha, too
For that dream that came strolling
Where gentle waves were rolling
Seems to be only you



My Tomorrow Has Come (Larry W. Jones 08/23/2004) (song#3404)

 

I’ll be sailing tomorrow
I must leave you, my friends
Aloha ‘oe, farewell and sorrow
Hear the call of tradewinds
Out on the seas I must dwell

I’ll be sailing as surely
As outgoing tides leave the bay
For my tomorrow has come
And I must be sailing away

Oh, you must know from the start
Of this pain in my heart for tomorrow
I must leave you, my friends
Aloha ‘oe, farewell and sorrow
Hear the call of tradewinds
Out on the seas I must dwell

I’ll be sailing as surely
As outgoing tides leave the bay
For my tomorrow has come
And I must be sailing away

For my tomorrow has come
And I must be sailing away



That Island Melody (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2004) (song#3405)

 

I fell in love with an island melody
That captured me, enraptured me
My poor heart in its every part
Is now haunting me
Wanting to sing in harmony
With that island melody

Every night and every day
Like some mystical, magical charm
That island melody appears
Brings me to tears with its souvenirs
But it’s still oh, so warm

So, go ahead and play that island melody
Play that sweet refrain tenderly
Even though it haunts me so
That music of love from across the sea

My heart will listen to that harmony
Which will linger forever in my memory
For I will dream away as they play
That island melody

So, go ahead and play that island melody
Play that sweet refrain tenderly

My heart will listen to that harmony
Which will linger forever in my memory
For I will dream away as they play
That island melody



Canebreak Island Song (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2004) (song#3406)

Down in the canebreak by the old sugar mill
There lived an island girl named Leilani Lil
When I told her I loved her, I meant it to be strong
And when I serenaded her, this was my song

Hele mai, ku’u ipo, my canoe is lying low
It lies at the bay where gentle breezes blow
Hele mai, ku’u ipo, so lovely and brown
Come with me and we will go
Around to old Lahaina town

Down in the canebreak, she waits I know
Down where the tropic moon is risin’ low
I know that she’s waitin’ by her cottage door
And I know she’s happy on this island shore

Down in the canebreak, down by the bay
We’ll hear those Maui chimes ringin’ some day
In a brand new cottage in a brand new little bed
There’ll be a little keiki island baby, just as I said

Down in the canebreak, by the old sugar mill
Love we will forever make, me and Leilani Lil
Until our days are over, our love will still be strong
And I will serenade her with my canebreak island song



Moonglow Of Yesterday (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2004) (song#3407)

 

Hawaiian skies are purple at twilight time
The right time to remind my melancholy heart
That we’re apart as the moon begins to climb
Up in the tropic sky, love beams to impart

I still see you that day strolling far away
And today this song just will not die
Island love is the moonglow of yesterday
The music of love and woe in paradise

Now each lonely night I seem to spend
In dreams to the music of an island song
It’s a melody of love that we once knew
Like a dove that coos for a mate thereof
When your dream was me and mine was you

Your kisses were not just imagination
But that was before you strolled away
Now my heart has no consolation
Except in the moonglow of yesterday

Outside an island cottage door
When moonbeams are shining on the shore
Once again I hold you in my arms
Birds of paradise sing a sweet refrain
Of a paradise that’s gone away
And though my dreams are now in vain
I still see the moonglow of yesterday
In the memory of your love again



Rose Of The Polynesian Sea (Larry W. Jones 08/24/2004) (song#3408)

 

On a polynesian sea
Lives a maiden dear to me
A lovely one and oh, so fair
A sweet tiare in her hair
Rose of the polynesian sea

In dreams I sail so far away
To that distant Opunohu bay
Where a song still rings of her
With words my heart sings today

White sails out on the blue
Polynesian isles come into view
Those sails have taken me
Once again across the sea to you

Heavenly is this dream of you
Rose of the polynesian sea
A flower of love that I knew
Now a dream that won’t let me be

When the full moon begins to beam
I begin again with all my schemes
Of how to make this dream reality
And make you mine eternally
My rose of the polynesian sea



Down Makaha Road (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2004) (song#3409)

 

As I picked my koa guitar strings
The rhythm of the islands helped us sing
And we would rock there in harmony
With the tradewinds in that old porch swing
I played kiho’alu on my old koa guitar
Believing that someday I’d be a star
And future plans, happiness would bring

So, I left her there on west Makaha road
Played luaus and hotels lookin’ for that motherload
Chasing empty dreams in Hawaii blue
While she made all of hers come true
Now I’m down and out in Lahaina town
And without a doubt, she’s not around
To hear me pick my koa guitar strings and sing

My thoughts go ram’lin’ down Makaha road
Trying to find that dream of mine
I left a dream come true for a heavy load
When I left that girl waitin’ down Makaha road

I’m playin’ hotels and luaus at a faster pace
No one can tell I’m lookin’ for her face
I still dwell on thoughts that send me back there
She’s somewhere in old Oahu
While I’m in Lahaina town feelin’ blue
I can still see the flower in her hair

My thoughts go ram’lin’ down Makaha road
Trying to find that dream of mine
I left a dream come true for a heavy load
When I left that girl waitin’ down Makaha road

My thoughts go ram’lin’ down Makaha road
Trying to find that dream of mine
I left a dream come true for a heavy load
When I left that girl waitin’ down Makaha road



Under A Golden Moon (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2004) (song#3410)

 

Slowly the golden moon
Climbs into starlit skies
Tradewinds whisper as lovers sigh
You and I, with hearts in tune
Have found our paradise

Under a golden moon
With you here in my arms
It’s always the month of June
As your charms beguile my heart for keeps

Under a golden moon
On a night so balmy warm
This night with you was made to swoon
With you in my arms so beautiful and sweet

Here in my heart, love for you will remain
And the moon will play its part just the same

Under a golden moon
With you here in my arms
Soon your charms will be all mine for keeps
Under a golden moon
Under a golden moon



Leilani Mine (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2004) (song#3411)

 

Leilani mine, don’t let your heart pine, dear
Summertime, anytime, you know I’m near
Don’t be blue in Hawaii blue
For where tuberoses bloom
I’ll soon return to you, Leilani mine

Leilani mine, you’re the tropic sun to me
My sunshine here by the bluest sea
Don’t let your days be dreary even for awhile
Let your smile chase away clouds from the isle

Leilani mine, Leilani mine
The yellow moon will come and shine
And I’m the fellow who’ll be there
To claim the loveliest flower mine

When turtle doves coo for their love
Even if the moon is hiding above
I won’t mind because I know I’ll find
The light of love somewhere in paradise
It will be in your eyes, sweet Leilani mine

I won’t mind because I know I’ll find
The light of love somewhere in paradise
It will be in your eyes, sweet Leilani mine



My Open Arms (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2004) (song#3412)

 

mm-mm-mm
mm-mm-mm

My open arms, arms that reach for you
But if they have to wait
My open arms will only wait for you

And here where tradewinds gently play
My arms will be open just this way
Until you return to fill my open arms some day

Each lonely night when I go to sleep
mm-In my mind and heart
Sweet dreams of you I always keep

My open arms won’t be open long
Because I heard a song that said you’re comin’ home
And when you return to this island shore
My open arms will close around you once more

mm-yeah, my open arms
Will close around you once more



An Island Is A Dream (Larry W. Jones 08/25/2004) (song#3413)

 

An island is a dream
That seems to somehow be enchanted
Don’t take an island for granted
For it’s a little world that’s all aglow
Ask all the lovers, they’re the ones who know

And when you see a tropical falling star
That’s when you know an island is enchanted
It’s a topic for an island love, just plant it
Plant it in the sand and watch love grow

Another enchanted thing that’s really grand
Is strolling hand in hand with your lover
In the twilight when the moon just begins to rise
In an island scene like that, you’ll soon discover
The enchantment of an isle of paradise

Islands in the stream are yours and mine
And there it seems you’re enchanted all the time

Another enchanted thing that’s really grand
Is strolling hand in hand with your lover
In the twilight when the moon just begins to rise
In an island scene like that, you’ll soon discover
The enchantment of an isle of paradise

Islands in the stream are yours and mine
And there it seems you’re enchanted all the time



Ocean Liner Goodbye (Larry W. Jones 08/26/2004) (song#3414)

Every time we say Aloha ‘oe goodbye
I feel like I’m gonna die
Every time we say Aloha ‘oe goodbye
I can’t help but wonder why

Why does the man in the moon above
The one who knows where the tradewind blows
Why doesn’t he keep you here with me
Instead of allowing you to go

But when you’re here with me on the shore
There’s something with glee about it
Birds are singing I never heard before
There’s something of paradise to me about it

No love song written could be finer
When my heart sings a love song lullaby
But every time you take that ocean liner
The notes are major and never minor
Every time we say Aloha ‘oe goodbye



Sweet Island Siren (Larry W. Jones 08/26/2004) (song#3415)

 

Well, if I were Don Ho
I’d write you a letter, I know
Or even better, somethin’ island inspirin’
For a sweet island siren
Where breezes blow

Well, I might be no poet
And don’t you know, I know it
But anyhow
This song, I avow
Is a perfect fit for you

You’re the reason for my everything
In every season you’re my song to sing
When I’m slumbering, you’re my tropic sun
You’re always numbering my number one

Every time I kiss you, I’m so glad
And every time I miss you, I’m so sad
You are the swoon of the moon
And soon will come the June I’ve been waiting for
There’ll be a tune to a wedding by the shore
Who could ask for more
The only task I ask of you, and I ain’t lyin’
Is to be my sweet island siren for evermore



Our Faded Island Love (Larry W. Jones 08/26/2004) (song#3416)

 

When you left, you didn’t say Aloha ‘oe goodbye
And you left me to wonder why
Why I stand in island sand here in paradise
Here in Hawaii blue, so blue I could cry

Raindrops come raining down around my head
They’re not from the skies but from my eyes instead
The skies are beautiful above but only remind me of
Our beautiful but faded island love

High up in the tall palm trees
The birds are so in love with the breeze
Then they simply fly away
And there’s nothing left to be speaking of
It reminds me of that day when you took away all of
Our beautiful but faded island love

I’m like the waving fronds in the tall palm trees
Once a bird of paradise was fond of me
You are that bird of paradise I tried to please
Here on this island in the sea

I was so joyful that our paths had crossed
My heart was filled with joy, full of love that cost
It was beautiful to see, but was not to be
Our beautiful but faded island love

I’m like the waving fronds in the tall palm trees
Once a bird of paradise was fond of me
You are that bird of paradise I tried to please
Here on this island in the sea

I was so joyful that our paths had crossed
My heart was filled with joy, full of love that cost
It was beautiful to see, but was not to be
Our beautiful but faded island love



Dear Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 08/26/2004) (song#3417)

 

So enchanting is this island scene
As the tropic moon up there is beaming
And tradewinds fill the balmy air at Waikiki

Twinkling stars are in the sky so clean
There are no bars to stop me from dreaming
Of you and your sweet love eternally

No place is so fair as dear Hawaii
A lovely isle, lovely you and deep blue sea
No place is so fair as dear Hawaii
A lovely smile, lovely you and love for me

When I’m far away from your charms
Back to Hawaii nei I’m always thinking
And of that sweet day when I met you

More than my heart is wrapped up in your arms
I watch as the evening sun is sinking
As if winking to an island dream come true

No place is so fair as dear Hawaii
A lovely isle, lovely you and deep blue sea
No place is so fair as dear Hawaii
A lovely smile, lovely you and love for me



My Tropic Moon (Larry W. Jones 08/26/2004) (song#3418)

 

Tell me, is her love still true
Oh, tell me true, my tropic moon
Will she be coming out tonight
To meet me in your moonlight
Oh, tell me true, my tropic moon

Will she meet me at her cottage gate
Or for her loving arms, must I wait
If you know, please tell me so, my tropic moon
For you know how much I love her so
Will she hurry or must I worry if she’s slow
If you know, please tell me so, my tropic moon

I guess you can see I’m lonely now
Where can my ku’u ipo sweetheart be
Tell me if you know, my tropic moon
Why is there a cloud across your face
Will I be feeling the loss of her embrace
Tell me if you know, my tropic moon

My tropic moon, for her I’m sighing
And very soon, to you I’ll be crying
If she doesn’t change her tune
If she doesn’t hurry on the double
My poor heart will soon be in big trouble
Oh, don’t let love float away like a big balloon

So, my tropic moon, you big yellow bubble
Have pity on this fellow in his trouble
Tell her I want to marry her in June
Oh, please tell her soon, my tropic moon



An Island Toward The Sun (Larry W. Jones 08/26/2004) (song#3419)

 

There’s someone who will sail with you, far away
To a new horizon far away
Oh yes, he will come some day
And take you to an island toward the sun, far away
Oh yes, he will come some day

And when he comes, he will share
All the love there is on shores of paradise
Just look at me and you will see
That someone is right before your eyes

Who else can treat your heart so kindly
Far away, when you’re far away
The one who will be with you finally
On that island toward the sun, far away

And when he comes, he will share
All the love there is on shores of paradise
Just look at me and you will see
That someone is right before your eyes

Oh yes, he will come some day
And take you to an island toward the sun, far away
Island love will show the way

And when he comes, he will share
All the love there is on shores of paradise
Just look at me and you will see
That someone is right before your eyes

Let me sail away with you, far away
Let me share my love forever and a day
I’ll take you to an island toward the sun, far away
To an island toward the sun, far away



Tahiti O Tahiti (Larry W. Jones 08/26/2004) (song#3420)

 

Each time I hear a Tahiti white tern sing
I see racks of copra drying in the sun
O Tahiti, beauty to the world you bring
And oh, how I long for my return

There in an old grass covered cottage
I played as a child there by the sea
And just as they say in that old adage
My island home is home sweet home to me

Tahiti, O Tahiti, I remember olden ways
And my sweetheart in golden barefoot days
Deep blue skies and polynesian eyes
Keep before me scenes of paradise

O Tahiti, beauty to the world you bring
And oh, how I long for my return

Tahiti, O Tahiti, I remember olden ways
And my sweetheart in golden barefoot days
Deep blue skies and polynesian eyes
Keep before me scenes of paradise
Tahiti, O Tahiti, I can hear you calling me



On This Golden Shore (Larry W. Jones 08/27/2004) (song#3421)

 

Tradewinds, playin’ with the tall palm trees
Caressing all their green green leaves
As we stroll by
Gentle, kisses that we share down by the bay
Showing that we care in every way
In this paradise
Warm, is the softness of a moonlit night
Feelings that we know are oh, so right
And oh, so nice

Oh, why must happy times end this way
So soon after islands called
Away from where tradewinds blow, I must go
And I know that the rain will fall
I wish I didn’t have to go, I love you so
I never wanted to let you go

And when the snow, drifts against my cabin door
I’ll remember island days again
And dream of you on this golden shore

Oh, why must happy times end this way
So soon after islands called
Away from where tradewinds blow, I must go
And I know that the rain will fall
I wish I didn’t have to go, I love you so
I never wanted to let you go

And when the snow, drifts against my cabin door
I’ll remember island days again
And dream of you on this golden shore



And There I’ll Stay (Larry W. Jones 08/31/2004) (song#3422)

 

Life there is a song, as they say
Hearts there are in love every day

So, sail on, ‘cross the ocean
To that isle of peace and love
And there I’ll stay

This mainland is in a rush everywhere
As if no one has time to even care

So, sail on, ‘cross the ocean
Where love is in the air
And Aloha is what they say

Island people know how to find joy
In their music is how they say
E komo mai, come be an island boy
You’re welcome to stay

So, there is where I will stay
Forever and a day

So, sail on, ‘cross the ocean
To that isle of peace and love
And there I’ll stay
And there I’ll stay
There I’ll stay



With You By My Side (Larry W. Jones 08/31/2004) (song#3423)

 

I’ll stroll in the sun with you by my side
I’ll hold your hand in the warm island sand
For you, I’ll do anything, even turn the tide
Because I love you more than any island man

Tradewinds will whisper your name
Birds of paradise will sing for all times
People will bow and to you proclaim
For you is the ring of sweet Maui chimes

I’ll be around in old Lahaina town
To kiss away tears from your eyes
Every happiness in you I have found
All the love there is in paradise

Love songs sung for you will never die
And the joy of them all will be mine
Stars will shine and the moon will sigh
And for you is the ring of sweet Maui chimes

I’ll stroll in the sun with you by my side
I’ll hold your hand in the warm island sand
For you, I’ll do anything, even turn the tide
Because I love you more than any island man

Tradewinds will whisper your name
Birds of paradise will sing for all times
People will bow and to you proclaim
For you is the ring of sweet Maui chimes



For The Last Time (Larry W. Jones 08/31/2004) (song#3424)

 

For the last time before the next time
Sweetheart, I want to hold you tight
Just one more kiss won’t be a crime
Then I’ll say Aloha ‘oe goodnight

Your kisses are sweet to linger on
And though I must be on my way
Just one more kiss to dream on
Then Aloha ‘oe is what I’ll say

A thousand hugs and kisses ago
I said Aloha ‘oe here at your door
But those goodbyes now I know
Didn’t stop me from wanting more

So, for the last time before the next time
And before you disappear from sight
For the last time before the next time
I’ll kiss you Aloha ‘oe goodnight

A thousand hugs and kisses ago
I said Aloha ‘oe here at your door
But those goodbyes now I know
Didn’t stop me from wanting more

So, for the last time before the next time
And before you disappear from sight
For the last time before the next time
I’ll kiss you Aloha ‘oe goodnight
I’ll kiss you Aloha ‘oe goodnight
I’ll kiss you Aloha ‘oe goodnight



For Old Mem’ries Sake (Larry W. Jones 08/31/2004) (song#3425)

 

This pain in my heart will come again tomorrow
But I remember when all things were right
So, for old mem’ries sake, please heal this ache
And bring back that old island love so bright

If old mem’ries no longer thrill you
And you’ve forgotten the island’s love call
Just remember that I still care
And remenber when we used to share
And let old mem’ries around your heart fall

So, for old mem’ries sake
Let me hold you in my arms again
Please heal this ache
Remember when we were best friends
Before my heart felt this pain

So, kiss me one more time
And try to remember again
The sound of sweet Maui chimes
And maybe island love will awake
Just for old mem’ries sake

So, kiss me one more time
And try to remember again
The sound of sweet Maui chimes
And maybe island love will awake
Just for old mem’ries sake
Just for old mem’ries sake



This Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 09/01/2004) (song#3426)

 

Please take this island rose
This beautiful and tender island rose
That on this island grows
With tender and loving care

And may it be a symbol of
With its crimson petals held so close
This love we have to share
Here where softly the tradewind blows

And please take this, my heart, the same
This heart that loves you so well
And may it forever for you flame
As islands of paradise forever dwell

And may it be a symbol of
With its crimson petals held so close
This love we have to share
Here where softly the tradewind blows

Please take this island rose, my own
As you, the same, now take my heart
For polynesian eyes now tell
This island rose and my heart
Must never part from you
Must never part from you alone



Sail Away With You (Larry W. Jones 09/01/2004) (song#3427)

 

If somebody asked me to paint a landscape
Of an island in a sea of blue
The only scene I would need to make
Would be a rainbow made for two
Your little greeting of Aloha
Would make the island magic too
When I painted a landscape
Of paradise for me and you

If somebody asked me to throw a luau
And invite a special guest or two
I guess it wouldn’t take much knowhow
To know which one to send an invitation to
I would only need your address
And maybe a stamp or two
To invite the one my heart loves best
To a luau in paradise for two

I always had an ambition
To just sail away into the blue
And now that you are in my vision
I just want to sail away with you

If somebody asked me to build a castle
I wouldn’t need big building blocks or glue
An island man could build one of sand
That would last a lifetime too
I would build it to your design
And add a corner tower or two
If you would say that you’d be mine
I’d build a castle of love for me and you

I always had an ambition
To just sail away into the blue
And now that you are in my vision
I just want to sail away with you



Empty Island Love (Larry W. Jones 09/01/2004) (song#3428)

 

Nothing could mean so much to me
Than to have your love here by the sea
But when I reach out to touch you
I find you’re gone, and my dreams too
That’s what a dream of island love will do

And sweetheart, I was so surprised
When I realized I had lost the prize
Of loving you

I always heard that love would grow
On an island where tradewinds blow
But I guess they didn’t know about me

If you would only be my love
And be the dream I’m dreaming of
Then island love would grow deeper
Deeper than the deep blue sea

And the only thing that I would ever want
In this big wide world
Would be for you to be my island girl
I’m so blue in Hawaii blue
Just wanting you
That’s what empty island love will do



Ginger Lei (Larry W. Jones 09/01/2004) (song#3429)

 

A ginger lei, a luau by the bay
And an Aloha kiss that day
These are the souvenirs
That we’ve had through the years
Ever since I fell in love with you

My every dream came true in Hawaii blue
At that bay side luau dance
My tongue was tied with a passing glance
That blossomed into true romance

When I gave to you a ginger lei
At that luau by the bay
I kissed you then and paved the way
For Aloha to fill the night time skies
Right on time for paradise

My every dream came true in Hawaii blue
At that bay side luau dance

A ginger lei, a luau by the bay
And an Aloha kiss that day
These are the souvenirs
That we’ve had through the years
That will never fade away



Hea Mai Ia’u ‘O Onaona Leilani (Larry W. Jones 09/01/2004) (song#3430)

I sing of sweet Leilani
Girl that I love
My pretty lehua blossom
Under tropic skies above
I sing of sweet Leilani
Song of my heart

Hea mai ia’u ‘o onaona Leilani
Wahini me ke Aloha
Ku’u pua nani lehua
Malalo moku lewa lani maluna
Hea mai ia’u ‘o onaona Leilani
Ka mele o ku`u pu`uwai

I sing of sweet Leilani
Girl that I love
My pretty lehua blossom
Under tropic skies above
I sing of sweet Leilani
Song of my heart

Hea mai ia’u ‘o onaona Leilani
I sing of sweet Leilani
Ka mele o ku`u pu`uwai



Nothing In Between (Larry W. Jones 09/01/2004) (song#3431)

 

Some people have talked
That love is somewhere between a song and dance
But they’ve never walked
Through life as yours and my romance
Here in this island scene
I’d much rather be seen
Forever with you
With nothing in between

Pineapples and sugar cane are sweet
And so is honey at first glance
But your treat just can’t be beat
The island makes it so enhanced
Here on this isle of love
You’re the sweetest island scene
It’s only you I’m dreaming of
With nothing in between

I’ll meet you tonight
By the shore just at twilight
Maybe nobody will be around
To interrupt the sound
Of two hearts beating as one

Some people have talked
That love is somewhere between a song and dance
But they’ve never walked
Through life as yours and my romance
Here in this island scene
I’d much rather be seen
Forever with you
With nothing in between



Tradewinds In My Memory (Larry W. Jones 09/02/2004) (song#3432)

 

You’re the tradewinds in my memory
That keep whispering your name
You’re the tradewinds in my memory
That keeps calling for my return

I left you there on the isle
With an Aloha ‘oe and a smile
And nothing has ever been the same
Except these tradewinds in my memory
That keep whispering your name

I should have stayed when I had a chance
To see if love would grow
But I left too soon and failed romance
With someone who’s love was true, I know

I left you there on the isle
With an Aloha ‘oe and a smile
And nothing has ever been the same
Except these tradewinds in my memory
That keep whispering your name

And nothing has ever been the same
Except these tradewinds in my memory
That keep whispering your name



Island Of Yesterday (Larry W. Jones 09/02/2004) (song#3433)

The island of yesterday is now a dream
That flows like a river through my mind
Made of golden sand, mountains and valley streams
That I knew as the child I left behind

Birds of paradise winging in the sun
Taught me a lesson that I would need
And their song was one that’s not undone
No matter where life’s path may lead

You never know the path of the wind
It’s as free as it can be
And you never know if in love you’ll win
On an island in the sea

I had a love that somehow I lost
She and the wind were next of kin
Now I’m free but at great cost
For my heart will never love again

Gone are the carefree island days
And the island boy I used to be
But I still hear the tradewind’s voice
At least you knew love here by the sea

Now there’s no reason to regret
Even though I may have lost it all
Except that her love I can’t forget
Every time the islands call

Gone are the carefree island days
And the island boy I used to be
But I still hear the tradewind’s voice
At least you knew love here by the sea



This Side Of Paradise (Larry W. Jones 09/02/2004) (song#3434)

 

I strolled by your cottage as daylight dies
Looked inside your gate at my demise
Knowing that you don’t know how my heart cries
This side of paradise

Someone else is happy there with you
I wonder if he will be forever true
I’ll miss the dreams I meant for only you
This side of paradise

Your wedding day really drew a crowd
All were smiling as I almost cried out loud
That wave you gave as you strolled along
Meant Aloha ‘oe to a love that was my own
My heart will be a slave to memories I’ve known
This side of paradise

(This side of paradise)
(This side of paradise)

Your wedding day really drew a crowd
All were smiling as I almost cried out loud
That wave you gave as you strolled along
Meant Aloha ‘oe to a love that was my own
My heart will be a slave to memories I’ve known
This side of paradise



I’m Sailin’ On (Larry W. Jones 09/02/2004) (song#3435)

 

See that sailing ship settin’ sails and tack
Means your sweet island daddy ain’t comin’ back
Cause I’m sailin’ on
I’ll soon be gone, to another zone
Don’t you look for me, I’ll be out at sea
Cause I’m sailin’ on

That departing whistle sounded loud and blue
Said Aloha to Tahiti, I’m comin’ to you
Cause I’m sailin’ on
Sing another island song
You won’t be laughin’ at me in Tahiti
Cause I’m sailin’ on

Mister captain, won’t you listen to my plea
Cause I gotta find a wahini in Tahiti
So, keep sailin’ on, from night til dawn
Tahiti’s my goal, let this old ship roll
And keep me sailin’ on

Mister first mate, don’t delay the motion
This clipper’s the fastest in the southern ocean
To keep me sailin’ on, keep sailin’ on
Get me there on time just to ease my mind
And keep sailin’ on

Well, my island baby didn’t pay me no mind
I found out maybe she’s the rovin’ kind
Now I’m sailin’ on, to another zone
She left me all alone, I’ll be all long gone
Cause I’m sailin’ on

You went and strolled away, now you’ve gotta pay
For no island woman can treat me that way
Cause I’m sailin’ on, your island daddy is gone
So, take my advice, treat your next man nice
Cause I’m sailin’ on

Someday you’ll wish your island daddy had stayed
Well, sweet island baby, this is all I’ll say
Keep sailin’ on, I’ll be just as gone
I’m through with you in Hawaii blue
Cause I’m sailin’ on



Polynesian Girl In Love (Larry W. Jones 09/02/2004) (song#3436)

 

The eyes of a polynesian girl in love
Are oh, so beautiful that way
There’s no denying a polynesian girl in love
When Aloha is the word they say

The tropic moon up in the sky
Must have lent to you its glow
But it really doesn’t matter the reason why
I just love everything about you so

A tiki flame makes polynesian eyes shine
The eyes of a polynesian girl in love
And I only hope they gaze forever into mine
Cause my heart’s ablaze with love
Ablaze with a polynesian girl in love

And I only hope they gaze forever into mine
Cause my heart’s ablaze with love
Ablaze with a polynesian girl in love



Sweet Leilani Mine (Larry W. Jones 09/02/2004) (song#3437)

Sweet Leilani mine
Why must we say Aloha ‘oe goodbye
You know each time my heart will pine
And next time it might even die

Ku’u ipo, listen to my prayer
Sweet Leilani mine
My arms are for you alone to share

All I want is all your love forever more
To have and to hold on this golden shore

Sweet Leilani mine
Please say those words that sound divine
That you’ll be my island love
For now and for all of time

All I want is all your love forever more
To have and to hold on this golden shore

Sweet Leilani mine
Please say those words that sound divine
That you’ll be my island love
For now and for all of time



Over The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 09/02/2004) (song#3438)

 

Over the ocean, over the sea
Over where my heart is longing to be
Let the moon shining up above
Shine on the island girl I love

Beams of a full yellow moon
That lights up the sea
Are shining tonight on tall palm trees
Let the moon shining up above
Shine on the island girl I love

Over the ocean, over the sea
Over where my heart is longing to be
Let the moon shining up above
Shine on the island girl I love

I hear island music and I want to sing
A song for an island rose of the spring
A rose as pretty as a rose can be
Let this love song that comforts me
Comfort the island girl I love

Over the ocean, over the sea
Over where my heart is longing to be
Let the moon shining up above
Shine on the island girl I love

Over the ocean, over the sea
Over where my heart is longing to be
Let the moon shining up above
Shine on the island girl I love



Yellow Gold And Tuberoses White (Larry W. Jones 09/02/2004) (song#3439)

 

It’s yellow gold and tuberoses white
When your island lover strolls your way
It’s yellow gold and tuberoses white
The island folks all say

The old talk story of a golden yellow moon
Upon an island tuberose did glow
An island boy and girl fell in love, and soon
It made the island tuberoses grow

They were both in love in paradise
And tradewind breezes whispered low
See the tuberoses grow tonight
In the golden yellow moonlight glow
And as they kissed with tender care
Tuberoses grew around them everywhere

And that’s why the island folks all recite
If there’s a golden yellow moon above
It’s yellow gold and tuberoses white
When an island boy and girl’s in love



Strolling Hand In Hand (Larry W. Jones 09/03/2004) (song#3440)

 

So this is the island of love
So this is the isle of golden sand
While islands call for love
Just give me all your love
Strolling hand in hand

So this is the island of love
My dreams of it were so grand
We’ll never leave it now
True love you’ll receive, I vow
Strolling hand in hand

Love is what the moon up above is
And hand in glove is what our love is
It’s island love’s command

So this is the island of love
And here in the tradewinds we stand
Let’s stroll under a rainbow now
As that lover’s refrain goes now
Strolling hand in hand

So this is the island of love
And here in the tradewinds we stand
Let’s stroll under a rainbow now
As that lover’s refrain goes now
Strolling hand in hand
Strolling hand in hand



Gently Gently (Larry W. Jones 09/03/2004) (song#3441)

 

Gently, gently as a quiet sea
I will kiss your lips so tenderly
Gently, gently I will turn the key
And open up your heart for love

I will care for you so gently
And tell you that I’ll never leave, no never
Here on this island in the sea
My love for you will last forever

Sometimes an island has a special song to sing
And you’re that special song on my heart strings

So gently, gently as a quiet sea
I will kiss your lips so tenderly
Gently, gently I will turn the key
And open up your heart for love

Gently, gently I will turn the key
And open up your heart for love



Your Word Of Aloha (Larry W. Jones 09/03/2004) (song#3442)

 

Grant me your word of Aloha
That your Aloha love never dies
Grant me your word of Aloha
That you feel the same in paradise

For a lifetime my heart will beat for you
And every beat will treat my word as true
It only wants to make your dreams come true
And my dreams too

So, if you will only
Grant to me your lips
And kiss me once again
Then I won’t be lonely
Or love when love’s in vain

Grant me a promise to guide me
Say that you’ll stay beside me
Grant me your word of Aloha now

So, if you will only
Grant to me your lips
And kiss me once again
Then I won’t be lonely
Or love when love’s in vain

Grant me a promise to guide me
Say that you’ll stay beside me
Grant me your word of Aloha now



Dreamboat Baby (Larry W. Jones 09/03/2004) (song#3443)

 

Dreamboat baby, you dreamboat baby
Your charms are as warm as an island note
I would paddle my outrigger canoe
And straddle all seven seas for you

Truly, I love you so truly
I would stroll with you on any shore
Dreamboat baby, you dreamboat baby
I want to be yours for evermore

I once had a dream about a dreamboat
And my dreamboat baby made my dreams all float
I still dream about my dreamboat
And here’s the song that I wrote

Dreamboat baby, you dreamboat baby
Your charms are as warm as an island note
I would paddle my outrigger canoe
And straddle all seven seas for you

Truly, I love you so truly
I would stroll with you on any shore
Dreamboat baby, you dreamboat baby
I want to be yours for evermore



Sailing Ship Blues (Larry W. Jones 09/03/2004) (song#3444)

 

I was born in Lahaina in a little grass shack
Down by the water front a little set back
A sailing ship it was that always caught my eye
The whistle of the captain was my island lullaby
I’ve got the sailing ship blues
Got ’em down to the bottom of my deck hand shoes
I’ve got the sailing ship blues
I’ve got the sailing ship blues

And when the captain blows that whistle, I gotta go
I gotta say Aloha ‘oe goodbye, cause don’t you know
The reason why is, I’m never gonna lose
These sailing ship blues

Well, my daddy was a sailor and my mama, dear
She was the daughter of a maritime engineer
My ku’u ipo darlin’ left for foreign ports unknown
Maybe someday I’ll find her in some tropic zone
I’ve got the sailing ship blues
Got ’em down to the bottom of my deck hand shoes
I’ve got the sailing ship blues
I’ve got the sailing ship blues

And when the captain blows that whistle, I gotta go
I gotta say Aloha ‘oe goodbye, cause don’t you know
The reason why is, I’m never gonna lose
These sailing ship blues

I’ve got the sailing ship blues
Got ’em down to the bottom of my deck hand shoes
I’ve got the sailing ship blues
I’ve got the sailing ship blues



From Tahiti With Aloha (Larry W. Jones 09/03/2004) (song#3445

 

From Tahiti with Aloha
I’m sailing back to you
Not quite as foolish
As when I bid Aloha ‘oe goodbye to you

I have sailed the world
Only to learn
That I must now return
From Tahiti with Aloha to you

I have sailed to many places
Seen faces from old Rio
There were times that I smiled
But your mem’ry haunted me so

Even in my letters
My tongue seemed to be tied
I should have known better
Maybe it was only my pride

But if you are ever to be my bride
True love for you I must show
So, I’m sailing from Tahiti with Aloha
And begging that you don’t say no

Away to Tahiti I sailed
I was going to stay, and then
Tradewinds whispered your name like a gale
And I knew how much I missed you again

My sailing the world is now through
This sail is my last hurrah
For I’ll be sailing back to you
From Tahiti with Aloha



From The Bottom Of My Heart (Larry W. Jones 09/03/2004) (song#3446)

 

From the bottom of my heart
Ku’u ipo, I love you
What more can I say
From the bottom of my heart
My love for you is true
Forever and a day
From the bottom of my heart

My every breath is for you alone
Ku’u ipo, I love you
I need you for my very own
More than you ever knew
From the bottom of my heart
It’s only you that I adore
From the bottom of my heart
No one else could love you more

Every minute that we’re apart
I miss you from the very start
And ku’u ipo, what’s more
I’d be on my way to paradise
Here on this island shore
If you’d just tell me with your eyes
E ke Aloha ku’u ipo
From the bottom of your heart

And ku’u ipo, what’s more
I’d be on my way to paradise
Here on this island shore
If you’d just tell me with your eyes
E ke Aloha ku’u ipo
From the bottom of your heart



Empty Arms Full Moon (Larry W. Jones 09/03/2004) (song#3447)

 

Empty arms, full moon and a golden shore
This golden shore was made for two to share
And so was the golden moon up there
But oh, where are you, I wonder where

On a warm and tropic night like this
The topic of love should leave sweet memories
And I believe that with just one kiss
You and I could start a dream to beat eternally

Empty arms, full moon and a golden shore
Tonight I’ll use a star to wish upon
And next time there comes a full moon
Here on this golden shore
My empty arms won’t be empty anymore

Empty arms, full moon and a golden shore
Tonight I’ll use a star to wish upon
And next time there comes a full moon
Here on this golden shore
My empty arms won’t be empty anymore



Wide Blue Rolling Ocean (Larry W. Jones 09/03/2004) (song#3448)

 

As I was out riding and roping one day
I spied a waihini a-strollin’ my way
A fair island maid, as fair as could be
And I was a paniolo cowboy by the blue sea

Where are you going, my fair island maid
Just down by the ocean, in the palm shade
Just down by the ocean, and a song I will bring
To see the wild blue rolling ocean
And hear birds of paradise sing

We hadn’t been there but a few minutes or so
Til I took out my guitar for to play it real low
I tuned my kiho’alu guitar on each of its strings
And I sang her a love song over and over again

But I being a paniolo cowboy, I should move along
Oh no, said this island maid, play another love song
For I’d rather hear your guitar played on each string
Than to see the wide blue rolling ocean
And hear the birds of paradise sing



Kaua’i Isle Of Love (Larry W. Jones 09/04/2004) (song#3449)

 

I discovered a garden isle long ago
kaua’i, where the air is fragrant and sweet
And where the Mokihana berries grow
Kaua’i, shaded with tall palm trees
Where birds of paradise sing, morn til night
Sing to me of love and a garden isle’s delight

Kaua’i, garden isle of happiness
Where tropic skies of deepest blue
Shine over valleys and mountains with views
Kaua’i, now that I have discovered you
Hope and gladness are mine
Kaua’i, isle of love and happiness divine

In this fair garden isle, I will forever stay
With Aloha in my heart each hour of each day
No dark clouds dim the tropic skies above
No tears are in this garden isle of love

Kaua’i, garden isle of happiness
Where tropic skies of deepest blue
Shine over valleys and mountains with views
Kaua’i, now that I have discovered you
Hope and gladness are mine
Kaua’i, isle of love and happiness divine



Big Jet To Maui (Larry W. Jones 09/05/2004) (song#3450)

 

Well, we’re on a big jet to Maui
Me and my love are Kahului bound
Yeah, we’re takin’ a big jet to Maui
Gonna take in old Lahaina town

We’re gonna drive the road to Hana
Me and my love who looks so fine
We’re gonna drive the road to Hana
Fifty four bridges left behind

We’re gonna listen to slack key guitars
Of George Kahumoku, Led Kaapana kind
And we’ll be strolling under the stars
On the shores of Maui one more time

Yeah, we’re on a big jet to Maui
Not there yet, but we can’t wait
Gonna make a lot of Maui wowee
When this big jet gets to the paradise gate



Marvelous (Larry W. Jones 09/16/2004) (song#3451)

 

Every time you look at me
Another song begins here by the sea
Played on a million guitar strings
While sweet Maui chimes above me rings
Marvelous, marvelous you are to me

Tradewinds whisper ku’u ipo before my eyes
My sweetheart you are in paradise
My feet grow wings and to dreams they fly
Marvelous, marvelous you are to me

Something magical happens whenever you are near
Warm and magical as island sand that brings me cheer

A kiss from you can’t be denied
An island miss like you could be my bride
No wonder tropic stars are staring eyes
Marvelous, marvelous you are to me

A kiss from you can’t be denied
An island miss like you could be my bride
No wonder tropic stars are staring eyes
Marvelous, marvelous you are to me



Aloha Oe To Lahaina (Larry W. Jones 09/16/2004) (song#3452)

 

Aloha ‘oe to Lahaina
Goodbye to Lahainaluna hill
And to dear old Maui island
I bid ye farewell
I am bound for the arctic
On a ship ready to sail
Where the ice there is so thick
We will hunt for the whale

Aloha ‘oe to friends unsurpassed
For a long while we’ll be apart
And the same to that dear island lass
Who has fairly won my heart
But the cold ice of the arctic
Will not my love ever chill
Though I will be heartsick
Her true love for me I will feel

Our ship has three tall masts
And she’s trimmed full of sails
Eyes to the arctic are all cast
Where swims the great monster whales
Where icebergs are in motion
And the stormy gales blow
Where the land and the ocean
Feel the cold of the snow

There is no warm island sand
On a coast so barren as there
And the king of the arctic land
Is the great snow white bear
No love for the arctic there will be
Only for home we will yearn
When our ship’s hold is full, we
Will to Maui and old Lahaina return



Maui On My Mind (Larry W. Jones 09/17/2004) (song#3453)

 

Island meles bring sweet memories
Just as they have from the start
And they all make me think of Maui
And make me wonder why we ever parted

On days when tropic islands call
With their heartfelt song
I yearn to return to old Maui
Back to the isle where I belong

Maui, Maui, where skies are blue
An old sweet island mele
Keeps Maui on my mind

Maui, Maui, oh how I long for you
A song is in my heart so clear
And it always sounds like Maui chimes

Other places I have seen
But none of them will do
For I have seen in all my dreams
Old Maui in a sea of blue

Maui, Maui, every day I find
An old sweet island mele
Keeps Maui on my mind
An old sweet island mele
Keeps Maui on my mind



An Island Love Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 09/17/2004) (song#3454)

 

Oh, if you travel to warm islands fair
Where tradewinds come from off the brine
Perhaps you’ll see a polynesian beauty there
She once was an island love of mine

Oh, if you go to where rainbows form
When the sunshine beams through the rain
You will see her strolling sands so warm
Even though her heart be filled with pain

Her raven black hair, it hangs so long
And in the tropic breeze it blows so fine
Perhaps when you’re there, you’ll hear her song
The one that flows now through my mind

I wonder every time the islands call
If she still remembers me at all
I can only pray there’ll come a day
When I’ll return to her island small

Oh, if you travel to warm islands fair
Where tradewinds come from off the brine
Perhaps you’ll see a polynesian beauty there
She once was an island love of mine



Give Me The Tropic Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 09/17/2004) (song#3455)

 

Just give me tropic moonlight
Give me a sweet wahini girl
And leave the rest to a tropic night
Where the ocean breakers curl

Just give me an island song
Played on some steel guitars
And leave the rest for strollin’ along
Under all those winking stars

Just give me a table for two
In a cafe down at Waikiki
And leave the rest to Hawaii blue
And she’ll fall in love with me

Now there’s no doubt about it
Might as well shout about it

Just give me tropic moonlight
Give me a sweet wahini girl
And leave the rest to a tropic night
Where the ocean breakers curl

Just give me an island song
Played on some steel guitars
And leave the rest for strollin’ along
Under all those winking stars

Just give me a table for two
In a cafe down at Waikiki
And leave the rest to Hawaii blue
And she’ll fall in love with me

Just give me tropic moonlight
And she’ll fall in love with me



My Beautiful Leilani (Larry W. Jones 09/17/2004) (song#3456)

 

Many years ago on an island in the sea
True love where breezes blow filled this heart of me
She meant the world to me, dreams were coming true
In days when skies were always fair and blue

Then came a breeze one night
From some foreign tradewind skies
And my island rose so bright
Closed her polynesian eyes
Now every night I stroll
Along this lonely island shore
As tradewinds come to toll
Like a raven singing never more

My beautiful Leilani left me alone by the sea
She was as lovely as any flower blooming in May
My beautiful Leilani is now gone eternally
A foreign tradewind breeze came and took her away

My beautiful Leilani is now gone eternally
Birds of paradise still daily sing for me
But I only wish they could bring to me
My beautiful Leilani



Golden Records In The Sand (Larry W. Jones 09/17/2004) (song#3457)

 

From the city of Honolulu
And the golden Waimanalo sand
From the islands of Hawaii
Came a slack key guitar man

From a steel guitar and a twelve string
Came the songs that the islands know
Under the stars that the night time brings
He was heard at luaus, bars and on the radio

Gabby Pahinui and the Gabby Pahinui band
Played slack key kiho’alu in golden Hawaiian sand
Gabby was the king
When it came to island tunes
Playin’ on his twelve string
In Waimanalo afternoons

Then Gabby put his guitar aside
The show was over and the story told
In nineteen eighty, Gabby Pahinui died
And left us a legacy of Hawaiian gold

From the city of Honolulu
And the golden Waimanalo sand
From the islands of Hawaii
Came a slack key guitar man

Gabby Pahinui and the Gabby Pahinui band
Played slack key kiho’alu in golden Hawaiian sand
Gabby was the king
When it came to island tunes
Playin’ on his twelve string
In Waimanalo afternoons

Gabby Pahinui was a slack key island man
Gabby left us golden records in the sand
Now the show is over and the story has been told
We’ve got the golden records
Of a man whose voice was pure as gold



Aloha Tropic Sunshine (Larry W. Jones 09/17/2004) (song#3458)

 

Aloha tropic sunshine
Aloha tropic sunshine
Aloha tropic sunshine

Sometimes I just need to smile
And when the tropic sunshine’s out
It’s a lovely day here on the isle
And I’ve got something to smile about
Cause I’ve got a topic to talk about
I’m in love, I’m in love
And it’s a tropic sunshine day

Aloha tropic sunshine
Aloha tropic sunshine
Aloha tropic sunshine

We go for a stroll
And the tropic sun is shining down
Feels warm to my feet and to my soul
Here in old Lahaina town

Aloha tropic sunshine
Aloha tropic sunshine
Aloha tropic sunshine

We stop and sit beneath a tall palm tree
I’m in love with her and she’s in love with me
Everything feels so good
And she sure is looking fine
I smiled and I know she understood
I just smiled because she’s mine

Aloha tropic sunshine
Aloha tropic sunshine
Aloha tropic sunshine
Because she’s mine



Goodnight Ku’u Ipo (Larry W. Jones 09/17/2004) (song#3459)

 

The moon is shining its magic glow
Stars are twinkling where tradewinds blow
The island is sleeping in the valleys below
But midnight has come and we must part

Let me have just one more fond embrace
My heart with yours has found its place
And my eyes see love in your lovely face
Reflecting your love for me within your heart

Tropic stars are shining from up above
My heart will be pining for the girl I love
Like birds of paradise and the dove
When they need a nest for the love they keep

Night time stillness hovers over islands fair
Darkness covers fragrant tuberoses there
Should lovers have to part at times so rare
But the coming day says it’s time to sleep

Goodnight, ku’u ipo, as shadows gently fall
The stars and moon are watching over all
And as the dying tiki torches glow
Tradewinds are whispering soft and low
Goodnight ku’u ipo, goodnight
Goodnight ku’u ipo, my sweetheart, goodnight



Island Girl Of My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 09/17/2004) (song#3460)

 

Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever see the day
When the island girl of my dreams will exist
And even as I wonder, I hope that some way
She won’t be just in dreams to be kissed
I see her every night in that tropic zone
She’s as sweet as the roses in bloom
But when I awake, I find she is gone
Dreams fading away with the moon

There’s lots of dreamy girls in her island world
One for every island boy, so they say
So, I’ll just wait here with tears
Until my island dream girl appears
I know she’ll come strolling by some day
I’d be glad to find at the break of dawn
If I had her forever mine here in my arms
Then I wouldn’t have to sigh
And I wouldn’t have to say Aloha ‘oe goodbye
To the island girl of my dreams and her charms

Aloha ‘oe island girl of my dreams
Aloha ‘oe island girl of my dreams
You don’t know how I feel
But I feel that you are real
For you’re really mine, so it seems
The love in your eyes softly gleams
And I know it’s for me that love is true
So, I will forever love only you
Though in dreams I say Aloha, hello
When dawn has come, I’ll say, I know
Aloha ‘oe, goodbye island girl of my dreams



Sailor Remember Me (Larry W. Jones 09/18/2004) (song#3461)

 

When the moon is just a-risin’
And the twilight is fallin’
And tradewinds across the sand does blow
I hear the voice of my sweet darlin’
The island girl I loved so long ago

(Sailor remember me)

When I’m over where the breezes blow
Over where the palm trees grow
I can hear her voice sighing in the wind
And I can hear her plea again

(Sailor remember me)

And yes, forever I’ll remember
That girl there by the sea
Though dying is the ember
Sailor remember me

Sometimes I find myself thinking of
If I’ll find another where breezes blow
Who can take the place of her sweet love
But somehow, I guess I know
I’ll hear her voice calling in tradewinds
Blowin’ through the palms by the sea

(Sailor remember me)

And yes, forever I’ll remember
That girl there by the sea
Though dying is the ember
Sailor remember me

(Sailor remember me)
(Sailor remember me)



My Island Baby (Larry W. Jones 09/18/2004) (song#3462)

 

Drums of the islands are drummin’
Strings of my heart are hummin’
My island baby’s sailin’ o’re the sea
Her heart to me she’s bringin’
I hear sweet Maui chimes a-ringin’
Soon we’ll be island flingin’
Just my island baby and me

Somewhere out on the ocean blue
Sails are bringin’ a ship and crew
And bringing the reason why I’m singing
Returning my island baby home to me
That’s why the island drums are drummin’
And why my heart strings are hummin’
My island baby’s returnin’ home to me

I sure was sad when she was leavin’
I’ll sure be glad to stop this grievin’
Even flowers are smilin’ in Hawaii too
She’s left that old noisy mainland
Comin’ home to poi and island sand
I can’t wait to see her smile
When I say Aloha, I missed you

I’ll meet her at the Aloha Tower dock
I won’t be late, I’ll set my clock
She’ll be a lovely sight to see
My island baby’s comin’ home to me
I’ll meet her at the Aloha Tower dock
I won’t be late, I’ll set my clock
She’ll be a lovely sight to see
My island baby’s comin’ home to me



Shopping For A Lei (Larry W. Jones 09/18/2004) (song#3463)

 

In Waikiki I’m shopping for a lei
That is as fresh as the dew
A question I’ll be popping without delay
And I hope your answer is true

This lei will be woven at the dawn
Its meaning is already foregone
My love for only you has been born
And I hope your answer is true

The tropic sun is beamng morning rays
As warm as my love for you
I feel like I’m dreaming in a haze
And I hope your answer is true

This lei I’ll be buying in Waikiki
Is for my undying love eternally
When your love I have won by the sea
We’ll live and love in Hawaii blue

This lei will be woven at the dawn
Its meaning is already foregone
My love for only you has been born
And I hope your answer is true



Goodbye Island Dream (Larry W. Jones 09/18/2004) (song#3464)

 

Well, our island romance was sublime
And then you told me it was time to fly
What happened to those Maui chimes
And what turned Aloha to Aloha ‘oe goodbye

All the tropic stars fell from the heavens
And the moon is hiding behind a cloud
The tradewind breeze singing in palm trees
Suddenly strangely no longer is allowed

Our island dream is over and done
You have bid me Aloha ‘oe farewell
We had our fun in the island sun
But this is the end now, I can tell

Who was it anyway who said that day
That a dream is not what it may seem
I see love is not all peaches and cream
So, Aloha ‘oe, goodbye island dream

Who was it anyway who said that day
That a dream is not what it may seem
I see love is not all peaches and cream
So, Aloha ‘oe, goodbye island dream



Red Grow The Roses (Larry W. Jones 09/18/2004) (song#3465)

 

Red grow the roses, all covered with dew
Blue is my world since parting from you
Green are the islands and mountains there too
Red grow the roses, but my world is blue

Red grow the roses that remind me of you
The one I think of was my only love
Now I’m so lonely, you know that it’s true
Red grow the roses, but my world is blue

Red grow the roses that perfumed your bower
Red was the color of your favorite flower
Your island is green but love’s scene was untrue
Red grow the roses, but my world is blue

Red grow the roses, all covered with dew
Blue is my world since parting from you
Green are the islands and mountains there too
Red grow the roses, but my world is blue
Red grow the roses, but my world is blue



Twice As Much (Larry W. Jones 09/18/2004) (song#3466)

 

Well, I love you twice as much as you love me
That’s why I worry twice as much, can’t you see
I’m nice to you but you still put me down
And that’s not nice to do in old Lahaina town

I miss you twice as much as you miss me
You threw my love into the deep blue sea
I’d never be this blue in Hawaii blue, you see
If I didn’t love you twice as much as you love me

I’m nice to you but you still put me down
And that’s not nice to do in old Lahaina town

I miss you twice as much as you miss me
You threw my love into the deep blue sea
I’d never be this blue in Hawaii blue, you see
If I didn’t love you twice as much as you love me

I’d never be this blue in Hawaii blue, you see
If I didn’t love you twice as much as you love me



Leilani Is My Destiny (Larry W. Jones 09/18/2004) (song#3467)

 

Where soft breezes blow
There flows a name, Leilani
She’s strolling there I know
Where sweet tuberoses grow, Leilani

Before I had to go
Leilani stole the show every night
The stars twinkled with delight
Oh, I miss Leilani so

Every day I see her in my mind
So beautiful with all her charms
The islands call but I can’t find
The way to have Leilani in my arms

Oh, I must return across the sea
It’s so very plain to see
Leilani is my destiny
She’s the only girl for me

Every day I see her in my mind
So beautiful with all her charms
The islands call but I can’t find
The way to have Leilani in my arms

Oh, I must return across the sea
It’s so very plain to see
Leilani is my destiny
She’s the only girl for me



In Island Sand Again (Larry W. Jones 09/19/2004) (song#3468)

 

I saw your tears when I sailed away
In that hour just before the dawn
But it’s good to see your smile today
And it’s so good to be back home

Birds of paradise now sing of love
From the skies just up above
So, you can now forget your tears
For we can smile throughout the years
As heaven watches over hearts in love

Every heavy load is so much lighter
Your sweet smile is so much brighter
That sad Aloha ‘oe has changed to Aloha again
Yesterday’s sorrow we have known
But tomorrow’s light has shone
I sailed far away but here we are today
Hand in hand in island sand again

Birds of paradise now sing of love
From the skies just up above
So, you can now forget your tears
For we can smile throughout the years
As heaven watches over hearts in love

Yesterday’s sorrow we have known
But tomorrow’s light has shone
I sailed far away but here we are today
Hand in hand in island sand again



Happy Sailor (Larry W. Jones 09/19/2004) (song#3469)

 

I love to go a-sailin’
When the wind is at my back
And when I sail, a song I wail
About an island and a little grass shack

Aloha, Aloha
Aloha, Aloha ha ha ha ha ha
Aloha, Aloha
A happy song about an island
And a little grass shack back home

I love to fish in a valley stream
On old Maui isle back home
The islands are always calling me
To sing my happy song

Aloha, Aloha
Aloha, Aloha ha ha ha ha ha
Aloha, Aloha
A happy song about an island
And a little grass shack back home

Overhead flies the arctic tern
He’s one that never could stay home
But, like me, he’ll some day return
As o’re the rolling sea we roam

Aloha, Aloha
Aloha, Aloha ha ha ha ha ha
Aloha, Aloha
A happy song about an island
And a little grass shack back home



Harbor Of Island Dreams (Larry W. Jones 09/19/2004) (song#3470)

 

When the tropic sun is dying and the island world is still
Twilight comes a-creeping o’re every vale and hill
Golden beams of the western sun paint the isles aglow
And tradewinds whisper songs of love from long ago

Sweet voices from the islands call to me, it seems
And then wanders through my mind the best of scenes
Hiding in my mem’ry is a ship that sails to golden sands
And it always anchors at the harbor of island dreams

Tropic stars are watching like angel eyes above
Birds of paradise are singing their sweet carol of love
The velvet night is a mantle over island sand and sea
Such a sight is a lei of beautiful mem’ries made for me

Drifting along with a song where tradewinds blow
I close my eyes and view paradise in sweet repose
Drawing me onward, a beacon of love light now gleams
Until again I anchor at the harbor of island dreams

As I return through all the years of smiles and tears
Again I sail away to a beautiful isle and peaceful bays
And the journey, it seems, leads to soft moonbeams
When again I anchor at the harbor of island dreams



Journey To Paradise (Larry W. Jones 09/19/2004) (song#3471)

 

I undertook a journey
To find a place called paradise
I forsook all for the sea
To find harbors filled with spice

My dream was to find an island
On a far and distant shore
A peaceful place and a lovely face
Someone to adore

The moon and stars up in the blue
Soon spoke of love upon the shore
So, I begged the stars to guide me to you
And to a love called evermore

My dream was to find an island
On a far and distant shore
A peaceful place and a lovely face
Someone to adore

The moon and stars all heard my cries
There on that lovely shore
When I met you, it was paradise
And my journey was through for evermore



Kimo The Lonely Kalua Pig (Larry W. Jones 09/19/2004) (song#3472)

 

Kimo, a rather lonely kalua pig
Had a spotted manly snout
The island he lived on wasn’t big
And Kimo the kalua pig would pout

He never could get a piggy date
Though he thought he had great appeal
But every time he tried to find a mate
She would run out the gate and squeal

Kimo, the lonely kalua pig
Was a wallflower at the luau show
He danced his own little hula jig
When they wanted to roast him slow

He ran back home to his big pig pen
Pouting about his unhappy fate
He would pout about the shape he was in
And how to escape and find a mate

Kimo, the rather lonely kalua pig
Had some friends but they wouldn’t tell
That even a kalua pig belongs in the brig
When he’s got a big pig piggy smell



Have I Sailed The Seas Too Long (Larry W. Jones 09/19/2004) (song#3473)

 

Have I sailed the seas too long
I sure have missed the breeze and songs
If I sailed home to you tonight
Would you still be my ku’u ipo sweetheart
And could I hold you tight
Or, have I sailed the seas too long

The harbor light is shining strong
Is your sweet love still as strong
If I sailed home to you tonight
Would your love light still be burnin’
Or would you send my ship turnin’
Have I sailed the seas too long

My ship’s outside old Lahaina town
Soon I’ll be docking at the shore
I guess I’ll wait til the sun goes down
To come a-knocking on your door

I don’t even know if you’re still there
Maybe I should leave old Lahaina town
And sail on to another shore
You’re not to blame if you put me down
I just had places to explore

I wonder if my dreams are gone
If it seems that I’ve done wrong
If I sailed home to you tonight
Would you still be my ku’u ipo sweetheart
And could I hold you tight
Or, have I sailed the seas too long

If I sailed home to you tonight
Would you still be my ku’u ipo sweetheart
And could I hold you tight
Or, have I sailed the seas too long



She Took Another Look (Larry W. Jones 09/19/2004) (song#3474)

 

She took another look inside her heart
And found a memory from Hawaii blue
I thought that love’s tiki flame had died
But a spark of love was inside, I knew
She took another look inside her heart

She took another look at all her dreams
And some were still the way they were
I said I was through with all my schemes
And that I was still the one for her
She took another look at all her dreams

When twilight shadows fell upon the shore
I would find that my heart was in such pain
Crying for her love was my nightly chore
And trying to win back her love again

Since we’ve been apart I’ve dearly yearned
For the day she’d want me to return
She took another look that played the part
And found a spark of love there by the sea
She took another look inside her heart for me



Come On Up With Me (Larry W. Jones 09/19/2004) (song#3475)

 

Come on up with me and let me show you
Show you all the stars tonight
The Lurline served a heck of a fabulous supper
Now let’s climb to the deck that’s upper
And let me show you the fabulous stars tonight

Come on up with me and let me show you
What the stars look like out on the sea
Come on, let’s take a hike for two
I sure would like your company

We’ll go for a stroll tonight
Round and round the Lurline’s deck
Let me show you all the stars tonight
Like a necklace worn around your neck

You and I can take it slow
Cruising where the tradewinds blow
We can be as free as we can be
On our honeymoon to Hawaii

We’ll go for a stroll tonight
Round and round the Lurline’s deck
Let me show you all the stars tonight
Like a necklace worn around your neck

You and I can take it slow
Cruising where the tradewinds blow
We can be as free as we can be
On our honeymoon to Hawaii



Sailor On A Ship Of Fools (Larry W. Jones 09/19/2004) (song#3476)

 

I want to love, that’s what life is of
I’ve been a sailor on a ship of fools
It’s been push and shove
And things thereof
That keeps me sailing on a ship of fools

Love doesn’t follow rules
I keep sailing on a ship of fools
Love doesn’t follow rules

I’ve sailed to Mandalay
I’ve sailed to Hanalei
I’ve sailed the oceans on a ship of fools
I’ve chased my own dreams
Embraced my own schemes
That keeps me sailing on a ship of fools

Love doesn’t follow rules
I keep sailing on a ship of fools
Love doesn’t follow rules

I keep sailing on a ship of fools
Searching for an island where love’s not cruel
Love doesn’t follow rules
I’ve been a sailor on a ship of fools



Fifty Four Bridges To Hana Town (Larry W. Jones 09/20/2004) (song#3477)

 

Well, there’s 54 bridges to Hana town
We counted ’em every one
617 curves go up and down
Some in the shade, some in the sun

Yeah, there’s 54 bridges to Hana town
One way through and hair pin turns
Everything is green and nothing’s brown
Covered with waterfalls and ferns

From Paia and Ho’okipa
Windsurfers ride the windy bay
And on the Keanae peninsula
Real Hawaiians rule the day

Yeah, there’s 54 bridges to Hana town
Bamboo jungles, streams and pools
You ain’t been til you’ve been around
The road to Hana with the other fools

If you search close at Kipahulu
Down at Palapala Hoomau
Charles Lindberg’s grave’s there too
There’s no sign to tell you how

Well, there’s 54 bridges to Hana town
We counted ’em every one
617 curves go up and down
Some in the shade, some in the sun

There’s 54 bridges to Hana town
Pack a picnic basket and have some fun
There’s 54 bridges to Hana town
Some in the shade, some in the sun



Like Lost Island Love (Larry W. Jones 09/23/2004) (song#3478)

 

Just like an island rose
Fragrance so heavenly it throws
But its leaves have tears to disclose
For in the midst of thorns it grows
Just like lost island love
Just like lost island love

Grown to bloom upon the breast
Known for love that has been blessed
Though thorns are gathered with the rest
Just like lost island love
To the heart all must be pressed
Just like lost island love

Just like an island rose
Fragrance so heavenly it throws
But its leaves have tears to disclose
For in the midst of thorns it grows
Just like lost island love
Just like lost island love

Just as with hands the bud is severed
Love may die and live again no, never
And painful thorns as sharp as ever
Painful thorns as sharp as ever, oh

Just like an island rose
Fragrance so heavenly it throws
But its leaves have tears to disclose
For in the midst of thorns it grows
Just like lost island love
Just like lost island love



Heart Of The Ocean (Larry W. Jones 09/24/2004) (song#3479)

 

Well, I’ve looked high, and I’ve looked low
Lookin’ for a place where breezes blow
I’m looking for an island
In the heart of the ocean

Someday I know, I know it’s so
Gonna tell my friends I’ve gotta go
I’m looking for an island
In the heart of the ocean

Heart of the ocean
Where peaceful island people grow
Heart of the ocean
Feel the tradewinds as they blow
Oh, oh, oh

I want some sand, be an island man
I want to sleep under palm trees and get a tan
Livin’ on an island
In the heart of the ocean

Someday I know, I know it’s so
Gonna tell my friends I’ve gotta go
I’m looking for an island
In the heart of the ocean

Heart of the ocean
Where peaceful island people grow
Heart of the ocean
Feel the tradewinds as they blow
Oh, oh, oh



Kahului Bay Baby (Larry W. Jones 09/24/2004) (song#3480)

 

I met an island baby down by the bay
She’s the cutest island baby with a hula sway
She’s got some ‘uli ‘uli’s that she shakes around
Does the best dance in Maui that can be found
Oh, she’s my Kahului Bay baby
Kahului Bay baby of mine

She’s a hula baby, she’s island born
Who can do the hula from night til morn
I think she even hula’s in her sleep
Shakes her ‘uli ‘uli rattles while countin’ sheep
Yeah, she’s my Kahului Bay baby
Kahului Bay baby of mine

Her mama said to papa, what can we do
I think she’d rather hula instead of goin’ to school
Her papa said to mama, it may be strange, but true
Our baby does the hula like you used to do

I met an island baby down by the bay
She’s the cutest island baby with a hula sway
She’s got some ‘uli ‘uli’s that she shakes around
Does the best dance in Maui that can be found
Oh, she’s my Kahului Bay baby
Kahului Bay baby of mine

Hula, hula, Kahului Bay baby
Hula, hula, Kahului Bay baby
Hula, hula, Kahului Bay baby
Rock-a-hula baby
Rock-a-hula baby
Kahului Bay baby of mine

She’s a hula baby, she’s island born
Who can do the hula from night til morn
I think she even hula’s in her sleep
Shakes her ‘uli ‘uli rattles while countin’ sheep
Yeah, she’s my Kahului Bay baby
Kahului Bay baby of mine



Blessings By The Number (Larry W. Jones 09/24/2004) (song#3481)

 

Blessing number one was when I met you
I always knew that there would come a day
Blessing number two was when you said you loved me too
As we listened to slack key guitars down by the bay

Now I’ve got blessings by the number
Fortunes by the shore
In every way I’ve been blessed
Since you strolled through my door

Yes, I’ve got blessings by the number
You’re more than just a friend
And my blessings are still mounting
Here in the soft tradewind

Blessing number three was when the islands called me
And I knew that I would have to stay
The love that was created here by the shore
Is a dream that will last forever and a day

Now I’ve got blessings by the number
Fortunes by the shore
In every way I’ve been blessed
Since you strolled through my door

Yes, I’ve got blessings by the number
You’re more than just a friend
And my blessings are still mounting
Here in the soft tradewind

And my blessings are still mounting
Here in the soft tradewind



Heartbreak Isle (Larry W. Jones 09/24/2004) (song#3482)

 

Here on this shore in the tropic sun
You swore that you would be my only one
And that your love for me was true
Then came the time we had to part
And you said that I should wait for you
And keep your love here in my heart
And keep your love here in my heart

I’m waiting and wondering if it’s all worthwhile
Night after lonely night my heart’s on trial
Waiting for you here on heartbreak isle

I guess I’m just a fool to wait for you so long
Have you broken the rule and found another love
I’m still here waiting in the tropic sun
Waiting for the one I’m dreaming of
But you’re still so very far away
Will you come back and marry me someday
Come back and marry me someday

I’m waiting and wondering if it’s all worthwhile
Night after lonely night my heart’s on trial
Waiting for you here on heartbreak isle

On heartbreak isle most every night
I dream of how I held you tight
And wonder if again I’ll see your smile
Here on heartbreak isle

I guess I’m just a fool to wait for you so long
Have you broken the rule and found another love
I’m still here waiting in the tropic sun
Waiting for the one I’m dreaming of

On heartbreak isle most every night
I dream of how I held you tight
And wonder if again I’ll see your smile
Here on heartbreak isle

And wonder if again I’ll see your smile
Here on heartbreak isle



Leilani Come To Me (Larry W. Jones 09/24/2004) (song#3483)

 

Leilani ties her long black hair with a yellow lei
Her polynesian eyes are bright as sunshine on the sea
Leilani smiles and tells everyone that she’s OK
But Leilani’s tears are known to only me

Leilani wears a bright red flower in her hair
An island blossom made for everyone to see
She strolls the sand with such an island flair
But Leilani’s tears are known to only me

Leilani, hele mai, come to me and take my hand
There’ll be no sorrow come tomorrow like today
Leilani, hele mai, come to me and you’ll understand
That my love will be the answer and I’ll be here to stay

Leilani, I will buy for you a wedding ring
I’ll place it on your finger like a golden string
On this isle, a smile my love will ever bring
Instead of tears that are known to only me

Leilani, hele mai, come to me and never part
Happiness you’ll find is waiting for you in my heart
Leilani, hele mai, come to me, I love you so
Leilani, come to me, I love you so



Aloha Hello (Larry W. Jones 09/24/2004) (song#3484)

 

I’ve tried to find here in my mind
A kind of dream to knock upon my door
I’ve seen you stroll a hundred times
As you extol such beauty by the shore
Aloha, hello, you’re everything I’m looking for

You’ve got those polynesian eyes
You’ve got that pleasing island smile
You’ve got that look of paradise
That took my breath away awhile
I never know just what to say
So I’ll just say to you today
Aloha, hello, I want you to know
How much I know that I love you

I love to see the sunlight shining on your hair
I’d love to tell you every day
How much I truly care
My heart just overflows where tradewinds blow
Aloha, hello, I had to let you know

Sometimes I wish upon a star
When I feel lonely and feel blue
Sometimes I wonder where you are
And who might be kissing you
Sometimes I don’t know where to start
To let you know what’s in my heart
So, I’ll just impart a word or two
Aloha, hello, I’m so in love with you



Aloha Hawaii Hello (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2004) (song#3485)

 

Aloha ‘oe West, Aloha ‘oe East
Aloha ‘oe to the North
And South to say the least
Aloha Hawaii, Hello

I’ve been on the run, out of the sun
But now that’s done
So, E Komo Mai to your native island son
Aloha Hawaii, Hello

Oh, mister captain
Don’t leave me at the dock
Please mister captain
I’m lookin’ at the clock, and

I’ve been on the run, out of the sun
But now that’s done
So, E Komo Mai to your native island son
Aloha Hawaii, Hello

I can tell by your charting
To Hawaii your ship will be departing
I can’t afford but I beg of you
Let me board and take me to
Hawaii, where tradewinds blow
Aloha Hawaii, hello
Aloha Hawaii, hello



Soft Melody Of You (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2004) (song#3486)

 

Dreams of Hawaii come back on occasions
From isles of paradise and friendly persuasions
There on the shore under skies of blue
Tradewinds whisper a soft melody of you

I still have an occasional dream of you
It’s the equational sum of every day or two
The bottom line says I’m still in love with you
It feels divine, especially when I’m blue

Dreams of Hawaii come back on occasions
From isles of paradise and friendly persuasions
There on the shore under skies of blue
Tradewinds whisper a soft melody of you

The day I sailed away and we had to part
I knew that I would miss your loving arms
But remember, I promised to return, sweetheart
And I keep that ember warm without a doubt
Every time I dream about your charms

Dreams of Hawaii come back on occasions
From isles of paradise and friendly persuasions
There on the shore under skies of blue
Tradewinds whisper a soft melody of you



I’ll Be Finding You (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2004) (song#3487)

 

There’s an isle of love somewhere, they say
Where the sun shines on warm sand
I’m going to find that isle someday
And someone to stroll with hand in hand
She’ll be standing there beside me
Somewhere by a sea of blue
For I know it to be true
Someday I’ll be finding you

For everyone there’s someone
That’s what the old folks say
Someday I’ll find my someone
Somewhere by a peaceful bay
I’ll look and look until I’m blue
For I know it to be true
Someday I’ll be finding you

It’s been a cold and lonely journey
But I’ll be sailing with the tide
Somewhere far across the sea
And I’ll be by your side
By your side

I don’t look for fame or fortune
Someone else can have it all
I’m only looking for the sun
Where peaceful islands call
I know that there I’ll find true love
For I know it to be true
Someday I’ll be finding you

I know that there I’ll find true love
For I know it to be true
Someday I’ll be finding you



Where Is My Island Love (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2004) (song#3488)

 

When tradewinds from the islands call
Your memory I soon recall
Calling through warm summer rain
Whispering again your lovely name

Oh, where is my island love
Oh, where is my island love

The islands had so much love to bring
Fun in the sun and everything
When I gave to you my heart
I never dreamed that we’d ever part

Oh, where is my island love
Oh, where is my island love

While I’m waiting here, I feel you near
And I wonder how it all went wrong
I wonder if your arms are empty
And if you’re calling from across the sea
Return to me, return to me

I’ve been waiting for the tradewinds
To call me back to your isle to stay
But I don’t know if I’ll ever find a way
To win back again the one I’m dreaming of

Oh, where is my island love
Oh, where is my island love



There Goes My Island Baby (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2004) (song#3489)

 

In the twilight, golden moonlight skies
She goes strolling every night in paradise
And every time she does
It makes me feel so bad because

There goes my island baby, there she goes now
And it’s no surprise why I cry
She’s strolling with another guy
Well, there goes my island baby, there she goes now
Strolling with her new love in paradise
She’ll never be mine or hear my cries

I never see her stroll alone
I’m too shy to call her on the phone
I hear the tradewinds call her name
But whispering tradewinds just aren’t the same

There goes my island baby, there she goes now
And it’s no surprise why I cry
She’s strolling with another guy
Well, there goes my island baby, there she goes now
Strolling with her new love in paradise
She’ll never be mine or hear my cries

There goes my island baby, there she goes now
And it’s no surprise why I cry
She’s strolling with another guy
Well, there goes my island baby, there she goes now
Strolling with her new love in paradise
She’ll never be mine or hear my cries



Aloha Little Island Bluebird (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2004) (song#3490)

 

Aloha little island bluebird
Won’t you come and abide awhile with me
You could sit beside your nest and sing love words
Up in your favorite tall palm tree

Aloha little island bluebird
Bring the tropic sunshine along with you
Since all my dreams fell through
It seems I need a friend or two

I’ve been so lonesome here in paradise
And these tears aren’t just raindrops in my eyes
So, Aloha little island bluebird
Won’t you come and be my friend
And let my blue heart feel sunshine
And learn how to sing love songs again

Aloha little island bluebird
Won’t you come and abide awhile with me
You could sit beside your nest and sing love words
Up in your favorite tall palm tree

So, Aloha little island bluebird
Won’t you come and be my friend
And let my blue heart feel sunshine
And learn how to sing love songs again



Sweet Leilani’s Melody Of Love (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2004) (song#3491)

 

Over where the tropic skies smile tenderly
Sunlight kisses the palms rising slenderly
By a valley stream, island lovers came to dream
Beneath a yellow moon in days of long ago
And tradewinds whispered love songs sweet and low

Sweet Leilani strolled there tearfully
Looked upon the stream there fearfully
For there in that tropic zone
Sweet Leilani was all alone
And the banyan tree boughs bent low
As if to cover all her woe
And softly began to flow
Music to soothe her lonely soul

And the island song that was sung
Was sweet Leilani’s melody
The island music rung of days that used to be
As Leilani sat beneath the banyan tree
Every leaf above eased the grief of love
As the tradewind breeze whispered sweet Leilani’s melody

The trees and the breeze sang it tenderly
A song of love there by the sea
Now the birds of paradise
All sing in sweet reprise
Sweet Leilani’s melody of love



West Maui Wind (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2004) (song#3492)

In the west Maui mountains
Many tall trees you will find
I remember the ironwood trees
That my friends and I used to climb

And now whenever I get lonely
I endeavor to dream and pretend
That I’m back in my west Maui mountains
And it seems I can feel once again
The west Maui wind

I left my west Maui home for riches to find
Riches and pleasures of all mainland kinds
But that dream has been empty
It simply never did begin
I would have been better off back where I’ve been
In my west Maui mountains
In the west Maui wind

Heartaches and troubles turned out to be real
Cold mainland cities don’t have that island feel
And now whenever I get lonely
I endeavor to dream and pretend
That I’m back in my west Maui mountains
And it seems I can feel once again
The west Maui wind

The islands are calling me again
Back to my west Maui mountains
And the west Maui wind



Roses Of Kaua’i (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2004) (song#3493)

It’s rose time again on Kaua’i, garden isle
Roses in the spring seem to bloom for you
And the bird’s sweet song is sung for your smile
As I return to find your love for me is true

A year has passed, seems such a long while
But I have now returned, our love to renew
You were among the roses of Kaua’i, garden isle
On the day that I came sailing back to you

You were among the roses of Kaua’i, waiting there
On the day that I came sailing back to you
You were wearing a fragrant rose in your hair
Looking for all the world, the loveliest girl I ever knew

Your lips were the blushing red of roses
I kissed them as the flowers fresh with dew
On Kaua’i is where the flowers discloses
That I found your love for me was true

The kiss that you then gave to me
Was sweet as the rose when flushed and red
That kiss on Kaua’i by the sea
Meant more than words have ever said

Island roses were blooming as if to smile
Upon a love that proved to be true
You were among the roses of Kaua’i, garden isle
On the day that I came sailing back to you



Ocean Schooner Boogie (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2004) (song#3494)

Well, Captain Matson was a mighty sailor man
Now he’s resting in island sand
But the only music he could understand
Was a three masted schooner under his command

He made that ocean schooner boogie
Ocean schooner boogie
Yeah, he made that ocean schooner boogie
Captain Matson always got it there on time
He made that ocean schooner boogie
Ocean schooner boogie
Captain Matson was the captain of the Matson Line

When the dockmaster started ringin’ the bell
Everybody knew Captain Matson was comin’ to town
The ocean schooner boogie was the way they could tell
That three masted schooner was ridin’ the swells
Headin’ into port in old Lahaina town

He made that ocean schooner boogie
Ocean schooner boogie
Yeah, he made that ocean schooner boogie
Captain Matson always got it there on time
He made that ocean schooner boogie
Ocean schooner boogie
Captain Matson was the captain of the Matson Line



When It Was Time (Larry W. Jones 09/25/2004) (song#3495)

The tropic stars and yellow moon are shining
And on the island birds of paradise do sing
But here in sadness my heart is pining
For my true island love has taken wing

I was longing for the day when I’d see her
And listen to those Maui chimes sweetly ring
She was mine and no other love was sweeter
When it was time for birds of paradise to sing

When I sailed away I said I’d be returning
And to my true love such treasures I’d bring
Now I’ve returned and here I’m yearning
For my true love’s gone to hear another sing

I know I heard her say that she’d be waiting
And her word to my heart great joy did bring
Please return to me and don’t be hesitating
When it was time for birds of paradise to sing



When I Found You (Larry W. Jones 09/26/2004) (song#3496)

They say Manoa valley is where the rainbows form
I watched every day, in every way forlorn
Then one day a ray of gladness replaced my sadness
And here’s the reason why
With a little tropic sunshine from the sky
I saw a rainbow shining through
And I found the rainbow’s gold when I found you

I never thought I’d see the light of day
Nothing came out right was my middle name
But then a new sensation thrilled my imagination
And since that day life’s never been the same
This island just became a brand new state
A brand new state of mind before it was too late

I found gold at the end of a rainbow
A Manoa valley rainbow smiled on me
A world of happiness I found in your caress
On an island in the sea

They say Manoa valley is where the rainbows form
I watched every day, in every way forlorn
Then one day a ray of gladness replaced my sadness
And here’s the reason why
With a little tropic sunshine from the sky
I saw a rainbow shining through
And I found the rainbow’s gold when I found you



Paniolo Cowboy Joe (Larry W. Jones 09/26/2004) (song#3497)

Listen and you can hear it playing
Listen to what tradewinds are saying
A paniolo’s guitar playing love songs again
A Hawaiian cowboy singing in tradewinds

Over in old Kohala
On the isle where breezes blow
There once lived a famous paniolo
They just called him paniolo cowboy Joe
He played his slack key guitar
To the island girl that he loved so
Beneath the twinkling tropic stars

Listen and you can hear it playing
Listen to what tradewinds are saying
A paniolo’s guitar playing love songs again
A Hawaiian cowboy singing in tradewinds

He sang of the day when they’d be wed
When the branding was over and done
His plans were great in the words he said
For the girl of his dreams that he’d won
But he never returned from the branding
The longhorns trampled him at his post
Sometimes the tradewinds play his music
All along the beautiful Kohala coast

Listen and you can hear it playing
Listen to what tradewinds are saying
A paniolo’s guitar playing love songs again
A Hawaiian cowboy singing in tradewinds



Diamond Dew (Larry W. Jones 09/26/2004) (song#3498)

The tropic moon was softly shining
On a little island cottage home
Sweet fragrance of tiare filled the air
An island girl was writing a letter pining
For her sailor boy so far across the foam
Be careful darling, sailing over there

Diamond dew on the golden sand tonight
How it shines when the tropic moon is right
Sailor boy, so far across the sea
I pray for your return so you can see
Diamond dew on the golden sand tonight

Stars like diamonds shine over the isle tonight
While you sail your ship their silvery light
Please keep those sails all flying high
And come back soon when the moon is high
Stars like diamonds shine over the isle tonight

Diamond dew on the golden sand tonight
I pray that you come through the foam alright
When you go to sleep and dream of me
Then sweetheart, you will surely see
Diamond dew on the golden sand tonight

Darling Sweet Leilani (Larry W. Jones 09/26/2004) (song#3499)

Darling sweet Leilani
Strolling alone by the sea
Darling sweet Leilani
Please keep your love warm for me

Over in old Lahaina town
Where tradewinds blow
Lives a darling little Maui miss
That I love so
From this mainland one day I’ll depart
And I’ll return to old Maui
To where my darling sweetheart
Waits by the sea

Darling sweet Leilani
On Maui she waits by the sea
Darling sweet Leilani
On that lovely shore she’s waiting for me

Darling sweet Leilani
One day your waiting will end
Back in my arms you will be
My darling sweet Leilani

Darling sweet Leilani
One day your waiting will end
Back in my arms you will be
My darling sweet Leilani



Thirty Five Hundred (Larry W. Jones 09/19/2004) (song#3500)

Thirty five hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Thirty five hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Thirty five hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun

If you ever ask me how long for you my love will be
Thirty five hundred lifetimes, then we would wait and see
If I could do it over, not a thing would I ever change
I could sing you island songs of love that I’ve arranged

If you ever ask me how deep for you my love will be
I can only tell you that my love is deeper than the sea
Thirty five hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

Thirty five hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Thirty five hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Thirty five hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
Thirty five hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun



Islands With Mountains (Larry W. Jones 09/27/2004) (song#3501)

Islands with mountains are calling me
Away from these lowlands I daily see
And in my dreams I breath the balmy air
I am home among the palms when I’m out there

I dream as other dreamers dream
For another place in another scene
There’s no better place toward which to roam
When islands with mountains call you home

And the deep blue mighty ocean
Keeps right on rolling to the shore
Like the endless tolling of emotion
That from a lonely heart will pour

Islands with mountains are calling me
I can hear them call from across the sea
And when the morning sunlight comes
I’ll be sailing on toward the island sun

Islands with mountains are calling me
I can hear them call from across the sea
And when the morning sunlight comes
I’ll be sailing on toward the island sun



Let’s Make Believe (Larry W. Jones 09/27/2004) (song#3502)

As the wind did blow sometime long ago
A boy and girl looked up one summer eve
While staring at the sky as white clouds floated by
They said to each other, let’s play make believe

Let’s make believe those clouds are islands in the blue
Let’s make believe they were made for me and you
Let’s make believe as they go floating by
That we’ll find our dreams somewhere in paradise

Years went by and they became a groom and bride
And today they room on the island’s leeward side
All of their dreams they finally achieved
On an island where dreams aren’t just make believe

Let’s make believe those clouds are islands in the blue
Let’s make believe they were made for me and you
Let’s make believe as they go floating by
That we’ll find our dreams somewhere in paradise



Southern Isles And Sand (Larry W. Jones 09/27/2004) (song#3503)

Let me sing to you a song of the sea
Away, o’er oceans grand
Let me sing to you a song of the sea
We’re bound for southern isles and sand

So, away ye lads to where breakers curl
Away, o’er oceans grand
So, good day to all ye pretty mainland girls
We’re bound for southern isles and sand

Well, it’s goodbye to Mary and to Sue
Away, o’er oceans grand
We’ll say Ia Orana to sweet Leilani Lou
Down in southern Tahitian isles and sand

So, man the capstan as ye heave around
Away, o’er oceans grand
Haul that anchor to a sailor’s chanty sound
We’re bound for southern isles and sand

Our gallant ship sailed out across the bar
Away, o’er oceans grand
We billowed her sails toward the southern star
We’re bound for southern isles and sand

The lines are belayed and the sails are set
Away, o’er oceans grand
Goodby to the maids that we’ll n’ere forget
We’re bound for southern isles and sand

So, away ye lads to where breakers curl
Away, o’er oceans grand
So, good day to all ye pretty mainland girls
We’re bound for southern isles and sand



The Might Of Island Love (Larry W. Jones 09/28/2004) (song#3504)

Island love, fresh as the tradewind air
Island love, as none other can compare
One love that was meant for two
Heaven sent for me and you

Like a fragrant tuberose
That grows where tradewinds blow
Somehow I always knew
Island love like that would grow

You and I now have the right
To make our dreams all turn out right
Here in paradise we are today
And island love will show the way

Our future plans look oh, so bright
Like tropic stars glow in the night
They’ll point us in the way that’s right
Such is the might of island love

Our future plans look oh, so bright
Like tropic stars glow in the night
They’ll point us in the way that’s right
Such is the might of island love



At Home In Hawaii Nei (Larry W. Jones 10/09/2004) (song#3505)

Home is where the islands are
Where they play slack key guitars
And that is where I am today
At home with my heart in Hawaii nei

Who needs a castle on a hill
To see what you can see
An island will my dreams fulfill
As long as you’re at home with me

I used to be the roving kind
Who didn’t stick around too much
But that was way before your time
And before your gentle touch

Home is where the islands are
Where they play slack key guitars
And that is where I am today
At home with my heart in Hawaii nei

Home is where the islands are
Where twilight welcomes moon and stars
And every night I have to say
I love you more in every way

I used to be the roving kind
Who didn’t stick around too much
But that was way before your time
And before your gentle touch

Home is where the islands are
Where they play slack key guitars
And that is where I am today
At home with my heart in Hawaii nei



Home Sweet Home Means Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2004) (song#3506)

Way out across the sea there’s a tropic sun
Where tradewinds are blowing warm and free
And lovely islands there can’t be outdone
When it comes to home sweet home for me
If you follow the old polynesian trail
From the southern seas to Hawaii’s hills
Then you’ll know why they came to sail
Where they would find their dreams to fulfill

Home sweet home means Hawaii
Home sweet home means green mountains
And it means the sand and the sea
Way out where the tropic sun shines
Are the islands that I love the best
Never have I seen what so defines
Home sweet home in islands blessed

When the setting sun brings the end of day
Gold is the color of the rainbow skies
My heart will yearn for the turquoise bays
If ever I’m away from my island paradise
Where the tropic moon sheds its magic light
And the tradewinds whisper low
It’s like a love song that just feels right
And it’s sung in the loveliest place I know

Home sweet home means Hawaii
Home sweet home means green mountains
And it means the sand and the sea
Way out where the tropic sun shines
Are the islands that I love the best
Never have I seen what so defines
Home sweet home in islands blessed



My Pineapple Pie (Larry W. Jones 10/13/2004) (song#3507)

She was a sweet island girl
Livin’ on the north shore by the bay
Now her head is in a whirl
She just had to explore the USA
But I know she hears tradewinds today
And she knows what the tradewinds say

My pineapple pie, you’re drivin’ me crazy
In Hawaii blue, my skies are hazy
I’m strivin’ to figure out why you roam
Please return to your island home

Oh, my pineapple pie
Please return to where you belong
I wanna hear Aloha, not goodbye
I wanna hear your island song

Oh, my pineapple pie
I’ll have to be specific
Come back home before I die
Across the blue pacific
Oh, my pineapple pie
Please return to me

Oh, my pineapple pie
Please return to where you belong
I wanna hear Aloha, not goodbye
I wanna hear your island song
Oh, my pineapple pie
I wanna hear your island song



Isle Of No Concern (Larry W. Jones 10/15/2004) (song#3508)

I’m checking out of the isle of no return
All my skies are turning blue
I’m checking into the isle of no concern
And I reckon it’s because I met you

Goodbye to tears and doom and gloom
Goodbye to a broken heart that I once knew
The isle of no return won’t be my tomb
And I discern it’s because I met you

I dreamed that I felt your loving kiss
And I felt my heart melt in happiness
That dream came true just in time
Now I’m so glad that you’re mine, cause

I’m checking out of the isle of no return
All my skies are turning blue
I’m checking into the isle of no concern
And I reckon it’s because I met you

Goodbye to tears and doom and gloom
Goodbye to a broken heart that I once knew
The isle of no return won’t be my tomb
And I discern it’s because I met you

I’m checking out of the isle of no return
I’m checking into the isle of no concern
All my skies are turning blue
And I reckon it’s because I met you



A Luau Lei And An Aloha Kiss (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2004) (song#3509)

A luau lei and an Aloha kiss
On a night when dreams came true
Of that day I still reminisce
And of that night when I met you

How I remember that fleeting glance
That chance meeting and isle romance
My dreams came true in Hawaii blue
With a luau lei and an Aloha kiss with you

I gave to you a mokihana lei
Under Kauai’s velvet twilight skies
You gave to me your heart that day
That was the start of our paradise

A luau lei and an Aloha kiss
Will be souvenirs of yours and mine
A happy island man and island miss
We’ll be until the end of time

A luau lei and an Aloha kiss
On a night when dreams came true
Of that day I still reminisce
And of that night when I met you



Blue Hawaiian Island Blues (Larry W. Jones 10/16/2004) (song#3510)

I know I was foolish in my prime
I said goodbye to Maui chimes
Now I just pine for island climes
And for island folks I left behind
I’ve got those blue Hawaiian island blues
My mainland dreams unravelled
Now I’m standing by the quay
My bags are packed to travel
Back to blue Hawaii far away

I’m gonna hug my dear old ma
Tug the hukilau with dear old pa
Stroll along that sandy shore
And I’m never gonna leave anymore
I’ve got those blue Hawaiian island blues
I wanna smell lehua blossoms
Watch sunsets that are awesome
Paddle out in that peaceful bay
Back in blue Hawaii far away

I see a cottage with a tiki light
Mama and papa with hair so white
Wondering where’s their son tonight
And I wonder if they’re still alright
I’ve got those blue Hawaiian island blues
My mainland dreams unravelled
Now I’m standing by the quay
My bags are packed to travel
Back to blue Hawaii far away



You And I (Larry W. Jones 10/17/2004) (song#3511)

You and I have kept the music playing
You and I have made it last
On an isle where palms are swaying
Our love will last

I lost my heart to someone
But I never lost my way
You and I bask in the sun
Of Aloha every day

And even though the times are changing
You and I remain the same
Nothing between us needs rearranging
For island love is our refrain

You and I are best of lovers
You and I are best of friends
You and I were blessed to discover
Each other in the warm tradewinds

You and I know how it goes
When a song of love begins
And this song of ours, I suppose
Is island music that never ends



I Tell Them All (Larry W. Jones 10/20/2004) (song#3512)

Through isles of fragrant flowers
Where we shared smiles for endless hours
I stroll along, singing a song
And dreaming of you

I say to the tropic sun
My lonely days are over and done
I stroll along, singing a song
And dreaming of you

I tell all the birds of paradise
Just how nice you are
I tell the palm trees waving in the breeze
How you’re far more than par

I tell the yellow moon
That I’m the fellow who’ll wed in June
I stroll along, singing a song
And dreaming of you

I’m like a happy castaway
Who just got rescued yesterday
By a lovely wahini where breezes play
And I’m dreaming of you

The shady little stream, the waterfalls
Rainbows that light the scene when islands call
I tell them all
That I dream of you

I’m like a happy castaway
Who just got rescued yesterday
By a lovely wahini where breezes play
And I’m dreaming of you

The shady little stream, the waterfalls
Rainbows that light the scene when islands call
I tell them all
That I dream of you



Beautiful Hana (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2004) (song#3513)

Evermore I shall sing the praise
Of Hana’s shore and its lovely bays
Of the fragrant beauteous mountains
And the tradewinds blowing there

Maui isle is my dear home
Hana town’s where I belong
The winding road will take me
Home through valleys beyond compare

I am welcomed with open arms
By Hana town’s many island charms
The granduer of the peaceful sea
Calls to all and surely me

Fragrance of lokelani in the air
Waits for those who wander there
Beautiful Hana, beautiful Hana
Beautiful Hana, island town beyond compare

Haina ia mai kapuana la mau loa
Let the refrain be told evermore
Of beautiful Hana, beautiful Hana
Island town beyond compare



How Are Things In Bora Bora (Larry W. Jones 10/22/2004) (song#3514)

I can hear a bird, a paradise bird
Singing from an island
Where love, the word of love is heard
I can hear a wind, a soft tradewind
Calling from across the seas
From an island for my return again
So, I ask you please

How are things in Bora Bora
Does the sweet tiare still scent the air
Is it still the favorite blossom
That vahinis wear in their hair

How are things in Bora Bora
And does the rainbow shine o’re the bay
Does that vahini with polynesian eyes
Still smile at someone and stroll away

I’m sad when I’m dreaming
The love she had was only scheming
My weeping’s like the willow
So, with my tears upon my pillow
This is all I have to say
How are things in Bora Bora this fine day



This Fair Island Flower (Larry W. Jones 10/23/2004) (song#3515)

She twined ‘mid the ringlets of her raven black hair
Tuberoses so pale and lehua so fair
Mokihana so fragrant of emerald hue
And the yellow ilima of islands in bloom

She sang and she danced with her hula sway
She ceased her wild weeping, drove sorrow away
Though her heart was breaking, never shall he know
That his name made her tremble and her cheeks to glow

She’ll dream of him never, that she would say
She’ll charm every heart with her hula sway
She’ll live yet to see him regret that dark hour
When he won, then neglected, this fair island flower

He told her he loved her, and promised thereof
Through good and misfortune, all others above
But he won another, another heart fell
He left her in silence, no Aloha ‘oe farewell

He taught her to love him, this sweet island flower
That blossomed for him like a rose by a bower
When she woke from her dreaming, her love was astray
Her visions of love had all faded away

She’ll dream of him never, that she would say
She’ll charm every heart with her hula sway
She’ll live yet to see him regret that dark hour
When he won, then neglected, this fair island flower



The Canoe That Came Ashore (Larry W. Jones 10/24/2004) (song#3516)

They sailed both day and night
And paddled if winds were light
Far across deep blue seas they did roam
Polynesians followed their hoku star
To paradise islands near and far
Searching for a new place to call home

From Otahiti they did come
And Nuku Hiva sent its sons
Men and women in canoes all alone
Sun, moon and cloud and guiding stars
Allowed them horizons without bars
To find islands in another tropic zone

Ha’alele koa wa’a i koa kanaka
The koa canoe has departed island sand
Ke kai lipolipo polihua a Kane
The dark blue ocean out of sight of land

‘Au i ke kai me he manu ala
They crossed the sea like a bird’s wings beat
Pae mai la ka wa’a i ka ‘aina
The canoe has come ashore, we will eat

To Havaiki the voyagers came
Pa’ao, Paumakua, Mo’ikeha, men of fame
Far across deep blue seas they did roam
They are gone but their talk story’s told
In the tradewinds and sands of gold
Of Havaiki, islands that became their home

Haina ia mai ka puana la mau loa
Let the refrain be told forever
Of the canoe that came ashore



It Sounds Like A Song (Larry W. Jones 10/27/2004) (song#3517)

It sounds like a song
It feels like a song
It must be a song of love’s refrain
It’s meritorious, even glorious
It feels like a song
That belongs to a rainbow after the rain

I hear an old island talk story
That’s as new as morning’s glory
And it’s obligatory that I tell you
It sounds like a song
It feels like a song
That belongs to a dream come true

Let those island drums keep on drumming
Let those slack key guitars keep on strumming
It sounds like a song made for two
It feels like a song for me and you

I hear an old island talk story
That’s as new as morning’s glory
And it’s obligatory that I tell you
It sounds like a song
It feels like a song
That belongs to a dream come true

Let those island drums keep on drumming
Let those slack key guitars keep on strumming
It sounds like a song made for two
It feels like a song for me and you



When I Looked At You (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2004) (song#3518)

When I looked at you, I said to myself
True love I’ll never find just sitting on the shelf
So I dared myself to say it out loud
If true love we shared, I’d be on a cloud

When I looked at you, I said to my heart
Go ahead and take a chance
And let our romance have a start

Like a tiki fire in a tradewind, light displays
I’ll be your lover and your friend
Until the end of my days
I knew that my dream had come true
When I looked at you

When I looked at you, I said to my heart
Go ahead and take a chance
And let our romance have a start

Like a tiki fire in a tradewind, light displays
I’ll be your lover and your friend
Until the end of my days
I knew that my dream had come true
When I looked at you



I Love Lahaina (Larry W. Jones 11/01/2004) (song#3519)

Every time I anchor at old Lahaina town
I cast my eyes upon a paraidse
Cause when I hear the cheers
There’s never any tears
And that’s when I realize

I love Lahaina in the springtime
I love Lahaina in the fall
I love Lahaina in the winter
Cause every season’s just like summer
When old Lahaina calls

I love Lahaina any time
And here’s the reason why I care
I love to hear sweet Maui chimes
And be near my love so fair
Any time I anchor there

I love Lahaina in the springtime
I love Lahaina in the fall
I love Lahaina in the winter
Cause every season’s just like summer
When old Lahaina calls

I love Lahaina any time
And here’s the reason why I care
I love to hear sweet Maui chimes
And be near my love so fair
Any time I anchor there



Rose Of Kauai (Larry W. Jones 11/02/2004) (song#3520)

Tradewinds ruffled her long dark hair
Lehua and mokihana scented the air
Nowhere else could ever be
Such a part of my memory
No other island was ever so fair

I left my heart on the garden isle
On Kauai where my dreams now lie
Years have come and rolled away
But still the island calls to say
Return to your dreams in paradise

I left my heart on the garden isle
On Kauai where the tradewind blows
And now when the days are dark and bare
I still see the sunshine over there
Where the rose of Kauai island grows

Nowhere else could ever be
Such a part of my memory
No other island was ever so fair

I left my heart on the garden isle
On Kauai where the tradewind blows
And now when the days are dark and bare
I still see the sunshine over there
Where the rose of Kauai island grows



Sailin’ To A Tropic Zone (Larry W. Jones 11/05/2004) (song#3521)

Cold rain soakin’ my Aloha shirt
Skies sure are cold and gray
I gotta get away from this mainland dirt
Where my dreams all faded away

Riding my thumb to the western coast
I hope I don’t end up dead
I’ve found nothing here for which to boast
Eatin’ this day old bread

Is anybody sailin’ to a tropic zone
One like warm Tahiti
A clime where the sun shines all the time
And where love is there to greet me

Tradewinds are blowin’ over there for me
Calling me home again
That’s why I’m goin’ back out to sea
Sailin’ back to where I’ve been

Yonder comes a ship that I soon will sail
Takin’ me back to my island home
Tomorrow I’ll see islands from the rail
Across the reef from the breaking foam

Is anybody sailin’ to a tropic zone
One like warm Tahiti
A clime where the sun shines all the time
And where love is there to greet me

A clime where the sun shines all the time
And where love is there to greet me



Our Isle Of Love (Larry W. Jones 11/09/2004) (song#3522)

My world was blue til I met you
Nothing was right and all was wrong
Now what was asunder is full of wonder
Since you came strolling along

My happiness is a cause of bliss
Cause you made it that way
I was pleased to meet you, Aloha greet you
At the luau down by the bay

Our isle of love will be the best
Isle of love that can be found
For castles in the air we’ll not quest
We’ll build our own here on the ground

There’ll be fragrant tuberoses on our garden isle
Birds of paradise will sing
And sweet Maui chimes will ring all the while

You are the star that led me to this isle of love
You must have come from heaven above
Just say Aloha and yes, and I’ll confess
I’ll buy you a wedding dress for our isle of love



Cottage Home On The Isle (Larry W. Jones 11/10/2004) (song#3523)

Tonight, my dear, I’m lonely without you
I’ve forgotten what it’s like to smile
Everything I do is done without you
In our little cottage home on the isle

Oh, I don’t understand, but I’m certain
I’ve been cryin’ for you for awhile
I sit and watch the moon through the curtain
In our little cottage home on the isle

I hope you’re happy dear, wherever you are
But my sad heart is still here on trial
I pray you’ll find your way back by some star
To our little cottage home on the isle

Now if you ever get to the end of your road
And you just can’t run away another mile
Return to me and let my love be bestowed
In our little cottage home on the isle

Now if you ever get to the end of your road
And you just can’t run away another mile
Return to me and let my love be bestowed
In our little cottage home on the isle



Song Of The Islands (Larry W. Jones 11/11/2004) (song#3524)

The tropic sun is low in skies above Honolulu
The palms and pandanus know we must part
Tradewinds whisper Aloha ‘oe to me and you
And they whisper love songs to my heart

I will always remember your laughter
And the days that we spent in the sun
No, I will never forget, even after
The song of the islands is done

Someday I’ll stroll these sands once more
Feel the breeze, see the rolling waves endeavor
I will return to adore this lovely shore
And hear the song of the islands forever
You will dance in my dreams until then

I will always remember your laughter
And the days that we spent in the sun
No, I will never forget, even after
The song of the islands is done

Under the stars the islands lie sleeping
Upon the ocean the full moon does shine
Know that you’re in my heart for safe keeping
As I leave the song of the islands behind



Throughout The Tropic Night (Larry W. Jones 11/11/2004) (song#3525)

Sleep my love and peace will meet you
Throughout the tropic night
Dreams from above will come to greet you
Throughout the tropic night
Drowsy hours like sleeping flowers
Now come a-creeping
Of you tonight my thoughts take flight
In lovelight keeping
Throughout the tropic night

While the stars their watch is keeping
Throughout the tropic night
While the island quietly is sleeping
Throughout the tropic night
Over you let dreams be stealing
Delightful visions be revealing
My true love for you be feeling
Throughout the tropic night

My love, to you my thoughts are turning
Throughout the tropic night
Only for you my heart is yearning
Throughout the tropic night
Although it’s sad our paths did sever
Such parting won’t end love’s endeavor
I’ll return and you’ll be mine forever
Throughout the tropic night



Mid The Green Palms Of Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2004) (song#3526)

Mid the green palms of Hawaii
In the valley of Manoa
There’s a little cottage homestead that I love
With its white painted picket fence
It’s the ticket for a love intense
My dear old island homestead that I love

There’s a peaceful rainbow shining there
O’re my happy island home so dear
And there is where my heart is every day
In Manoa Valley’s fragrant air
I will spend my golden years
Mid the green palms of Hawaii far away

Mid the green palms of Hawaii
Along the banks of Manoa Valley stream
I once strolled there to play and sing
I remember how I used to skip a stone
Into that lazy babbling brook
And dream that it would
Carry me away upon its wings

There’s a peaceful rainbow shining there
O’re my happy island home so dear
And there is where my heart is every day
In Manoa Valley’s fragrant air
I will spend my golden years
Mid the green palms of Hawaii far away



Love Has Called Me Back (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2004) (song#3527)

Sometimes the days are oh, so bleak
That I seek to find a guide
Just to see the face of my island love
Sometimes I can hardly speak
Knowing she’s not by my side
Under the tropic lover’s moon above

Oh, lonesome island times
Oh, lonesome island times
Where is that island sweetheart of mine
With her face that looks so fine
With her arms and mine entwined
We once strolled along the warm shoreline

Now tropic stars are bright above
We’re island sweethearts still in love
We sing again like two island doves
Her sweet love has called me back
To that little island shack
By the look in her eyes of island love

Her sweet love has called me back
To that little island shack
By the look in her eyes of island love



Over On The Other Shore (Larry W. Jones 11/12/2004) (song#3528)

My love’s waiting under a tall palm tree
Over on the other shore
She said that she’d always love me
Over on the other shore
Polynesian eyes and long black hair
She’s an island beauty beyond compare
I can’t wait til I kiss her there
Over on the other shore

Over on the other shore
Sweetest island girl that I adore
Never have I found such eyes of brown
And you can bet I got around
To the girl I can’t ignore
Over on the other shore

Where there’s a will, then there’s a way
Over on the other shore
I knew I’d marry her some day
Over on the other shore
So, while everybody was fast asleep
I paddled my outrigger across the deep
And my promise to marry her I’d keep
Over on the other shore



That Old Song Of Love (Larry W. Jones 11/13/2004) (song#3529)

Over in the isles lives a melody
An old song of love that I have known
I still dream about her by that peaceful sea
There in that moonlit tropic zone

It was there I found in old Lahaina town
A heart of love underneath the stars up above
And that moonlit isle where soft breezes blow
Still calls to my broken heart with love

In a moment so tender, she stole my heart
She’s the fairest rose that I’ve ever known
The moon was there to render its own magic part
And it still speaks to me even though I’m alone

This broken song from old Lahaina town
Is just a token of true love that I’ve known
And that old song of love, it still comes around
Like a fragrant tuberose from a tropic zone

And that old song of love, it still comes around
Like a fragrant tuberose from a tropic zone



Green Island Hills (Larry W. Jones 11/14/2004) (song#3530)

I am a sailor and a rambler
And a rover in pursuit of my dreams
My dreams will be filled, my heart will be thrilled
Only, it seems, when my rambling is stilled
Among the palms of the green island hills

I will return to the islands
To where the warm tradewinds blow
I will return to the green island hills
And to the green valleys below
As a sailor, I’m a poor man
But I have dreams to fulfill
I’m on my way to my island home
Among the palms of the green island hills

Island life is like a song there
I was raised right and never wrong there
There’s no doubt that I belong there
True love will sprout when I get home

Upon the seven oceans I have roamed
Now I must return to my green island home
Tomorrow I will find someone to fulfill
My dreams and my love
Among the palms of the green island hills



Keiki O Ki Uaua O Na Pali (Larry W. Jones 11/14/2004) (song#3531)

There’s an old paniolo on the island
Hawaiian cowboy riding range by the sea
There’s an old paniolo on the island
It’s strange, but in the mirror
He looks just like me

He can recall the old talk stories
Of George Vancouver bringing longhorns to the isle
And of Kamehameha when he discovered
He needed cowboys who were born Vaquero style

E ho`i na keiki o ki uaua o na pali
Home go the very tough lads of the hills
Cowboys in old Hawaii will all agree
They had to use all of their paniolo skills

Now the time has come for reflection
For an old Hawaiian cowboy such as me
As I look at the mirror’s recollection
Of an old keiki o ki uaua o na pali

There’s an old paniolo on the island
Hawaiian cowboy riding range by the sea
There’s an old paniolo on the island
It’s strange, but in the mirror
He looks just like me



Hawaiian Isles I Love (Larry W. Jones 11/17/2004) (song#3532)

I feel tradewinds sliding down the Ko’olau
There’s no hiding what I’m dreaming of
The touch to my skin and on my brow
Are always on my mind of isles I love

The fragrant smell of an island tuberose
Reminds me deep inside my blood that flows
Why it is I’m forever dreaming of
Returning to those Hawaiian isles I love

I circle my calendar for every moon that’s full
And I watch it drift up in the velvet sky
Deep in my heart I always feel it pull
And wonder why I ever said Aloha ‘oe goodbye

Each and every time I hear an island tune
I picture myself strolling the sands of Waikiki
My Hawaii, I’ll be returning to you soon
To feel Aloha again by your warm sea

I see your golden sun setting in the sky
As I watch in my dreams, sometimes I cry
Missing you is like missing the heavens above
Heaven send me back to the isles I love

Missing you is like missing the heavens above
Heaven send me back to the isles I love



Leilani Island Queen (Larry W. Jones 12/11/2004) (song#3533)

In the islands there’s told an old talk story
Of a fair wahini all the sailors know
It’s still as new as a morning glory
Over where the tradewinds softly blow

Underneath the moonlight by the silver sea
Standing all alone where palm trees gently sway
She waits for her sailor there so patiently
His words in her heart the day he sailed away

This lei will tell that I’ll be true
Aloha ‘oe Leilani island queen
Today I sail, but I’ll return to you
Aloha ‘oe Leilani island queen

The kiss she gave was with her promise
That she would wait on this isle of love
And every sailor knows that her promise
Was as faithful as the stars above

Underneath the moonlight by the silver sea
Standing all alone where palm trees gently sway
She waits for her sailor there so patiently
His words in her heart the day he sailed away

This lei will tell that I’ll be true
Aloha ‘oe Leilani island queen
Today I sail, but I’ll return to you
Aloha ‘oe Leilani island queen

The ocean waves roll without ending
And who’s to say what a sailor’s end may be
But with the full moon’s light descending
Sailors on their ships say this is what you’ll see

Underneath the moonlight by the silver sea
She stands there all alone where palm trees gently sway
And as they go sailing on the tradewind breeze
Sailors call to her and this is what they say

Your lei still means that he is true
Aloha ‘oe Leilani island queen
He sailed away but he’ll return to you
Aloha ‘oe Leilani island queen
Aloha ‘oe Leilani island queen



On The Tradewinds Tonight (Larry W. Jones 12/24/2004) (song#3534)

On the tradewinds tonight
I feel your love, love that’s so right
And I want, want you to know
That my love will forever flow
Just like the tradewinds tonight
Just like the tradewinds tonight

Do you remember, that night by the bay
The moon was yellow above
Our new love was as bright as the day
On that isle that I’m dreaming of

In my dreams before morning light
I behold you again
And I feel your love, love that’s so right
On the tradewinds tonight

Do you remember, that night by the bay
The moon was yellow above
Our new love was as bright as the day
On that isle that I’m dreaming of

In my dreams before morning light
I behold you again
And I feel your love, love that’s so right
On the tradewinds tonight

Do you remember, that night by the bay
The moon was yellow above
Our new love was as bright as the day
On that isle that I’m dreaming of

On the tradewinds tonight



Come And Ease My Mind (Larry W. Jones 12/24/2004) (song#3535)

Well, there’s an island talk story been goin’ round
As old as the islands anchored in the blue
And it must have started in old Lahaina town
Cause it’s done come true about you

Once I had a lovin’ island gal
Sweetest little thing in old Lahaina town
But now she’s gone from this locale
I was just a pawn that she turned down

Oh, nobody cares about me, you see
Nothing compares to this misery
Somebody, please won’t you come around
Come and ease my mind in old Lahaina town

I’ll sing you island love songs all the time
Sweet as the sound of sweet Maui chimes
Oh, nobody cares about me, you see
Nothing compares to this misery

Somebody, please won’t you come around
Come and ease my mind in old Lahaina town

I’ll sing you island love songs all the time
Sweet as the sound of sweet Maui chimes
Oh, nobody cares about me, you see
Nothing compares to this misery

Somebody, please won’t you come around
Come and ease my mind in old Lahaina town



I Beg Of You (Larry W. Jones 12/24/2004) (song#3536)

Your love is like the island breeze upon the bay
Your touch is all I need to make my day
I hope you feel the same, my love is not a game
I don’t know another way
To explain my love today

So, I beg of you
Share your love with me and be my wife
And I beg of you
Love me forever all your life
And whenever islands call, true love will never fall
I will give to you my all
For here I am
I beg of you
All that matters now where tradewinds blow
Is that somehow you let me know

So, I beg of you
Share your love with me and be my wife
And I beg of you
Love me forever all your life
And whenever islands call, true love will never fall
I will give to you my all
For here I am
I beg of you

I beg of you



I Know A Little Island (Larry W. Jones 12/26/2004) (song#3537)

There’s a whole lot of islands that shine
In the tropic sun all the time
And there’s one that’s yours and mine
Where love could be so divine
A little light of love is in your eyes
And it’s paradise I’m thinking of

I know a little island that’s made for a whole lot of love
Yeah, darlin’, I know a little island that’s made for a whole lot of love
A little bit of sweet Maui chimes
Is music for a whole lot of island love
Over where the moon shines bright at night
Underneath a whole lot of stars above
I know a little island that’s made for a whole lot of love

I’ve sailed the seven seas over
Lookin’ for a perfect little spot
From Mandalay to the cliffs of Dover
And now I’m gonna anchor my little yacht
I’m asking for your hand in island sand
And a lifetime of your sweet love

I know a little island that’s made for a whole lot of love
Yeah, darlin’, I know a little island that’s made for a whole lot of love

A little bit of sweet Maui chimes
Is music for a whole lot of island love
Over where the moon shines bright at night
Underneath a whole lot of stars above
I know a little island that’s made for a whole lot of love



Just A Lonely Sailor (Larry W. Jones 12/27/2004) (song#3538)

I am just a lonely sailor
And I’m sailing all alone
Like someone without a compass
Trying to find a tropic zone

Beyond the blue horizon lies an island
And that island’s calling me
So, raise the sails you lonely sailor
Through the haze lies your destiny

In my dreams she looks so pretty
I feel her near but oh, so far
I don’t want to be a lonely sailor
Always reaching for a distant star

Sail, sail, sail, sail along sailor
Sing, sing, sing, a lonely sailor’s song

Will I ever leave this lonely ocean
Under midnight stars that shine
I’ve got to find my blue horizon
I’ve got to find that island dream of mine

I am just a lonely sailor
And I’m sailing all alone
I’ve got no one to say I love her
I’ve got no one to call my own



Dreamy Kohala Moon (Larry W. Jones 12/28/2004) (song#3539)

There’s an isle I long to see
The one to which I bid goodbye
It’s such a dream to me
The sun and moon and tropic sky
My heart will always wander
To that girl far to the west
I stroll again in island sand
With the girl I love the best

Dreamy Kohala moon, shine upon the one I knew
Dreamy Kohala moon, please say “I’ll return to you”
We’ll be happy again together soon
Underneath that dreamy Kohala moon

Swaying palms will welcome me
To old Kohala’s shore
Memories I recall so well
Are calling to me once more
Moonlight will reveal warm kisses
That form within my heart
With love we’ll seal our vows
Never ever more to part

Dreamy Kohala moon, shine upon the one I knew
Dreamy Kohala moon, please say “I’ll return to you”
We’ll be happy again together soon
Underneath that dreamy Kohala moon



My Lovely Lani (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2005) (song#3540)

Over where tradewinds are blowing
Someone there makes my heart merry
To that someone I’ll be going
And she knows that soon we’ll marry

She has no stockings made of silk
She needs no shoes of finest leather
She wears a flower in her hair
On an isle with finest weather

Over here, I own things great and small
And they say my life is bonnie
But, away I’d give them all
For that island and my lovely Lani

Although she’s poor, as I recall
True love’s lure is just like honey
Fairest she is where islands call
Soon I’ll be there to marry my lovely Lani

Over where tradewinds are blowing
Someone there makes my heart merry
To that someone I’ll be going
And she knows that soon we’ll marry

Soon I’ll be there to marry my lovely Lani



Island Moon Of Desire (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2005) (song#3541)

Through every lonely night there streams
Visions of someone I call my own
Waltzing through the islands of my dreams
It seems just you and I alone
I look into your dark brown eyes
As to an island tune we sway
Soon, in the skies of paradise
Will rise the moon to light the bay

Island moon, yours and my moon
Island moon of desire
Your golden light on starlit night
Always sets our hearts afire
The island calls as nighttime falls
Oh, why did love’s rhyme end too soon
Waltzing with you, my heart’s enthralled
Underneath the island moon

While steel guitars sound so divine
We’ve found the time grows late
Against your lips I’m pressing mine
For your sweet love I cannot wait
As fragrant as an island tuberose
Your sighs fill my empty heart in vain
The rose and the moonlight knows
That we’ll never meet again

Island moon, yours and my moon
Island moon of desire
Your golden light on starlit night
Always sets our hearts afire
The island calls as nighttime falls
Oh, why did love’s rhyme end too soon
Waltzing with you, my heart’s enthralled
Underneath the island moon



Beautiful Tahiti (Larry W. Jones 01/03/2005) (song#3542)

Made for dreaming is the scene
When stars are twinkling in the night
Upon the waters of beautiful Tahiti
Where the silv’ry moon is beaming bright
And of you in my arms I’m dreaming
For all my love is with you tonight

Beautiful Tahiti, my dear and beautiful Tahiti
You are the loveliest isle in the southern seas
Beautiful Tahiti, my dear and beautiful Tahiti
Beautiful are your memories to me

Though I’m far away, my darling
I am always thinking of your charms
And of that day when love was starting
When I first held you in my arms
The tropic sun was sinking out of view
Til time itself is done, I’ll be true

Beautiful Tahiti, my dear and beautiful Tahiti
You are the loveliest isle in the southern seas
Beautiful Tahiti, my dear and beautiful Tahiti
Beautiful are your memories to me



Honolulu Clipper (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2005) (song#3543)

My flying boat is headed for the harbor of love
The Honolulu Clipper is flying through the blue
Soon, the moon in all its splendor above
Will tell me that my island gal’s love is true
Out the window I see the harbor lights below
Where tradewinds blow, she’s waiting, I know

Honolulu Clipper, Honolulu Clipper
Has brought me here to where I’ll settle down
I’ll have to thank the skipper
For bringing me back to Honolulu town
My Honolulu baby lives by Ala Moana canal
She’s an island girl who’s nice and brown
She said I better not forget ‘er, my island gal
Honolulu Clipper, Honolulu Clipper
Thanks for bringing me back to Honolulu town

Now, my flying boat is about to settle down
Honolulu harbor is such a lovely place to land
Everybody loves to see it come to town
The skipper will taxi up to island sand
The Honolulu Clipper is right on time, I see
And there’s my Honolulu baby, waiting for me

Honolulu Clipper, Honolulu Clipper
Has brought me here to where I’ll settle down
I’ll have to thank the skipper
For bringing me back to Honolulu town
My Honolulu baby lives by Ala Moana canal
She’s an island girl who’s nice and brown
She said I better not forget ‘er, my island gal
Honolulu Clipper, Honolulu Clipper
Thanks for bringing me back to Honolulu town



I’m Losing Someone (Larry W. Jones 01/05/2005) (song#3544)

From the shore, the island’s calling
On the warm tradewind it comes
I know lovers are strolling together
And I know I’m losing someone

I went to a luau party
Bent on having some fun
But I know I didn’t feel hearty
Because I know I’m losing someone

You see, I remember those brown eyes
And that hibiscus she wore in her hair
But the door is now closed to paradise
As well as the love that was there

Sometimes I wonder if she’s happy
Her departing was like losing the sun
Maybe my heart can find a new love
But for now, I’m losing someone

Sometimes I wonder if she’s happy
Her departing was like losing the sun
Maybe my heart can find a new love
But for now, I’m losing someone



I Dreamed A Dream Of You (Larry W. Jones 01/06/2005) (song#3545)

Somewhere I heard a wise man’s word
That if someone’s out of sight
Then that someone’s out of mind
I must have been blind
For every time I turned around
This is what I found

I took a trip on a sailing ship
And all I did was dream of you
I saw an isle, but I couldn’t smile
All the while dreaming of you

A band played a few bars under the stars
It had such a lovely island theme
The moon shone down on old Lahaina town
And it seemed I dreamed the same old dream

At all those luaus, when I think of them now
Why we parted, I don’t have a clue
And when I boarded the ship
My heart, it just skipped, feeling so blue

I looked over the rail
At the moonbeams so pale
Leaving a trail on the water to you
There was nothing to do, except to feel blue
As I dreamed a dream of you



We Will Never Be Lonely (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2005) (song#3546)

We will never be lonely
We will never be blue
Our love will never be undone
Under the sun in Hawaii blue

Dear, I will never be sorry
My love never will fade
True love will not be exchanged, dear
And my vows all will be paid

Islands are made for living
With Aloha in one’s heart
Every day will be thanksgiving
Knowing that we’ll never part

Our love is new, but it’s so true
For evermore will I love you
Our love will never be undone
Under the sun in Hawaii blue

Islands are made for living
With Aloha in one’s heart
Every day will be thanksgiving
Knowing that we’ll never part

Our love is new, but it’s so true
For evermore will I love you
Our love will never be undone
Under the sun in Hawaii blue



Aloha Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2005) (song#3547)

Aloha Hawaii, I can hear your islands call
Aloha is everywhere; winter, summer, spring and fall
You have green fertile valleys; tall mountains to explore
Aloha to your pacific ocean that rolls upon your shore

Aloha to ironwood forests, and fields of sugar cane
Aloha to tradewind breezes, and rainbows from the rain
Aloha to your island flowers, and luaus where I dine
Aloha Hawaii, islands that I’ll always know as mine

Aloha to your contribution, of ukuleles and guitars
Aloha Hawaii, to your golden moon and shining stars
Aloha to your sunsets, and to your long canoe
That brought to you, Hawaii, voyagers old and new

Aloha Honolulu, where people gather by the sea
Aloha all you islands that mean so much to me
Aloha Hawaii, islands made for love that’s gold
I will always love you, my Hawaii, even when I’m old

When the snow is on Mauna Kea
Your flowers in Manoa Valley are in bloom
That’s where I want to be, on your islands in the sea
Where the breeze is scented with perfume
And until the day I die, Aloha love will still apply
In my Hawaii, my island paradise



A Simple Island Life (Larry W. Jones 01/10/2005) (song#3548)

 

An island life, an island wife
An island life that’s simple by the sea
I don’t need the money for high society
And when my sweet wahini whispers
Aloha ku’u ipo, with you I’ll always be
A simple island life is good enough for me

We’ve got lots of time for luau things
And a bluebird by our cottage sings
Sweet Maui chimes here always rings
And when my sweet wahini whispers
Aloha ku’u ipo, with you I’ll always be
A simple island life is good enough for me

We’ve got clear blue skies that we can sing to
We’ve got Aloha love that we can cling to
A simple island life is our creed
That’s why our happiness is guaranteed
And when my sweet wahini whispers
Aloha ku’u ipo, with you I’ll always be
A simple island life is good enough for me

We’ve got clear blue skies that we can sing to
We’ve got Aloha love that we can cling to
A simple island life is our creed
That’s why our happiness is guaranteed
And when my sweet wahini whispers
Aloha ku’u ipo, with you I’ll always be
A simple island life is good enough for me

A simple island life is good enough for me



You Were Almost Gone (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2005) (song#3549)

 

I feel kinda silly, like a goof
I feel like I’ve got a leaky roof
What I’m speaking of is a man in love
Whose dreams almost went poof

Fess up to it, I guess I will
Even though it don’t make sense
My dreams almost went unfulfilled
I wonder at me still
Craziness is my only defence

I almost let the sweetest girl slip from my hands
You were almost gone, love’s sweet song
And the life we’d planned in island sands

But I awoke just in time
Just in time to hear sweet Maui chimes
And I held on to my prize
I realize I almost missed my paradise

I almost let the sweetest girl slip from my hands
You were almost gone, love’s sweet song
And the life we’d planned in island sands
And without your love, I’d be a lonely island man
And without your love, I’d be a lonely island man



It Grows Within My Heart (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2005) (song#3550)

The sweetest island flower that grows
That’s in this lei I know will do its part
For you, it is the tuberose
For me, it grows within my heart

For you, it is the tuberose
For me, it grows within my heart
Never will its fragrance fail
For I’ll one day our love renew
But, now away I must sail
Aloha, sweetheart, is what I bid to you

The sweetest island flower that grows
That’s in this lei I know will do its part
For you, it is the tuberose
For me, it grows within my heart

Never will its fragrance fail
For I’ll one day our love renew
But, now away I must sail
Aloha, sweetheart, is what I bid to you

The sweetest island flower that grows
That’s in this lei I know will do its part
For you, it is the tuberose
For me, it grows within my heart



Old Maui Island’s Hills (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2005) (song#3551)

 

I am dreaming of you, ku’u ipo, and I’m yearning
To return to where those tall palm trees wave
For my memory of your face is still burning
When I think of all the love and promises you gave

In my mind I see again the day we parted
It seemed the tradewind breeze stood still
The whipporwill was singing so downhearted
In the shadow of old Maui island’s hills

In the shadow of old Maui island’s hills
Where the bird of paradise ever trills
Where the tropic skies are blue
Oh, how I long to be with you
In the shadow of old Maui island’s hills

I am dreaming of my dear old island homestead
With island tuberoses sweet around the door
And I seem to hear you still there softly singing
Just the way you sang so happy by the shore

I can smell lehua blossoms covered fresh with dew
As their perfume all the isle with sweetness fills
Soon, I’ll return and there be always with you
In the shadow of old Maui island’s hills

In the shadow of old Maui island’s hills
Where the bird of paradise ever trills
Where the tropic skies are blue
Oh, how I long to be with you
In the shadow of old Maui island’s hills



Dreams Of You And Moonbeams Too (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2005) (song#3552)

 

The silence of the night now surrounds me
I contend that I’m so lonesome too
I wonder if you’re as lonely by the sea
Knowing that someone here thinks of you

The moon and the stars are reminiscing
Every time I say I’m missing you
They know it’s you in dreams I’m kissing
On your island in a sea of blue

Moonbeams are shining here tonight
Love dreams make lonely nights seem bright
Star gleams bring memories anew
Seems the best part of a love that’s true
Are dreams of you and moonbeams too

That same old moon is shining down on you
Those same bright stars are twinkling o’re the sea
I wonder if you have the same dreams too
And I wonder if you long for me

Moonbeams are shining here tonight
Love dreams make lonely nights seem bright
Star gleams bring memories anew
Seems the best part of a love that’s true
Are dreams of you and moonbeams too



Honolulu Hula Sway (Larry W. Jones 01/11/2005) (song#3553)

 

Over in Hawaii where the skies are clear
Where summer comes once all of the year
They have the lovin’-est dance that I know
When my wahini babe puts on a show

I want to hold her close and squeeze her tight
When she sways to the left then to the right
She makes the tide foam in the bay
When she decides to put on display
That Honolulu hula sway

Sway, sway, keep on a swayin’
Say, say, I feel like stayin’
When I look into my wahini baby’s eyes
I want to throw my arms around her
Let her know I’m glad I found her
She’s my Honolulu hula girl from paradise

She’s a tease I like to squeeze when wooin’
And I know she knows just what she’s doin’
She makes the tide foam in the bay
When she decides to put on display
That Honolulu hula sway

When I look into my wahini baby’s eyes
I want to throw my arms around her
Let her know I’m glad I found her
She’s my Honolulu hula girl from paradise

She’s a tease I like to squeeze when wooin’
And I know she knows just what she’s doin’
She makes the tide foam in the bay
When she decides to put on display
That Honolulu hula sway



Over Where The Tradewinds Gently Blow (Larry w. Jones 01/11/2005) (song#3554)

 

I was standing by the slip, waiting for my ship
At a California harbor way out west
That day seemed bright for me
For my dream I soon would see
That dear island girl I loved the best

I pictured her there by the sea
Where I strolled with Leilani
And that sugar cane plantation that I know
The tropic moon will surely shine
On that face of sweetheart mine
Over where the tradewinds gently blow

I can picture her tonight
Under moon and stars so bright
Hear island guitars playing soft and low
Over there is where I long to be
With sweet Leilani by the sea
Over where the tradewinds gently blow

When I reach that dear old place
And see her familiar lovely face
My heart, I know, will jump for joy
We’ll stroll together in the sand
And I’ll ask there for her hand
With all the love Aloha can employ

I can picture her tonight
Under moon and stars so bright
Hear island guitars playing soft and low
Over there is where I long to be
With sweet Leilani by the sea
Over where the tradewinds gently blow



Summertime In Aloha Land (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2005) (song#3555)

 

Birds of paradise were singing love songs
Over in Aloha land
When I posed the question that belongs
To the island lass I’d loved so long
And I knew that she would understand
When I said Aloha
I want to be your island man

Maui chimes were sweetly ringing
O’re the waves of foaming white
As the tropic sun was sinking in the sky
And it seemed the moon was bringing
Somewhat of a softer light
Just for my Aloha sweetheart and I

It was summertime in Aloha land
When I heard her whisper soft and low
E ke Aloha ku’u ipo, here’s my hand
I’ll marry you where island breezes blow

And when I kissed the fairest flower
That ever grew in island sand
My dreams came true that very hour
It was summertime in Aloha land

And when I kissed the fairest flower
That ever grew in island sand
My dreams came true that very hour
It was summertime in Aloha land



Under Tropic Skies With You (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2005) (song#3556)

 

Soft and low the trade breeze sings
Through palm trees when the sun swings low
It has the ring of guitar strings
That soothes my longing heart, I know

Tropic sun and island flowers
Still have a special place for me
Where you and I spent golden hours
Once more is in my memory

Oh, how I long for days of old
When my rainbow had shades of gold
If all my wishes and dreams came true
Life would be sublime, almost divine
Under tropic skies with you

Blow, blow tradewind, if you please
You bring mem’ries that I know
Flow, flow through tall palm trees
By deep blue seas that I love so

Oh, how I long for days of old
When my rainbow had shades of gold
If all my wishes and dreams came true
Life would be sublime, almost divine
Under tropic skies with you



My Pacific Island Queen (Larry W. Jones 01/12/2005) (song#3557)

 

On a south pacific isle, with her specific kinda smile
She lives where the tradewind blows
She is bashful as can be, on her island in the sea
But not a prettier tiare blossom grows
My true love for her I can’t restrain
So, to her I sing my heart’s refrain

Polynesian sea tiare, my pacific island queen
Of all the flowers that I’ve ever seen
Your beauty is lovely and serene
And nothing will ever come between
Me and my love for my pacific island queen

To our cottage by the bay, now we stray every day
For I have won the hand of this island queen
Now in every way I can, I try to be her island man
To her my heart belongs, so I sing this heartfelt song

Polynesian sea tiare, my pacific island queen
Of all the flowers that I’ve ever seen
Your beauty is lovely and serene
And nothing will ever come between
Me and my love for my pacific island queen



Somewhere In South Australia (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2005) (song#3558)

 

The sun went down in a dreary English town
As I kissed my love goodbye
I sailed away toward a new born day
Fame and fortune for to try

It was hard to roam from my love at home
I’ll return some day, I cried
Just keep me near, in your heart, my dear
Are the words that she replied

I’m now in south Australia
Somewhere in south Australia
Dreaming of the one I love so true
I’m working hard in south Australia
Somewhere in south Australia
On a home sweet home that’s built for two

I wrote back home for my love to cross the foam
To our new built home among the pines
And she wrote to me that I soon will see
The love that’s mine where the warm sun shines

I’m now in south Australia
Somewhere in south Australia
Waiting for my love to cross the foam
I’m now in south Australia
Somewhere in south Australia
In our home sweet south Australian home



Back Where I’ve Been (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2005) (song#3559)

 

I’ve been workin’ hard every day
Ever since you went away
Tryin’ to find a way to get you back again

I’ve thought of every little thing
Ever since I lost my dream
I just want to be back where I’ve been

It’s all my fault that you’re now gone
I tried to call on the telephone
I’m so blue I don’t know what to do

I’m just an island in the stream
My heart’s adrift without a dream
And the only harbor that’s safe enough is you

That’s why I’ve been workin’ hard every day
Ever since you went away
Tryin’ to find a way to get you back again

I’ve thought of every little thing
Ever since I lost my dream
I just want to be back where I’ve been

I find that I still see your face
It’s the kind I can’t replace
I just know I’m so in love with you

I’m just an island in the stream
My heart’s adrift without a dream
And the only harbor that’s safe enough is you

That’s why I’ve been workin’ hard every day
Ever since you went away
Tryin’ to find a way to get you back again

I’ve thought of every little thing
Ever since I lost my dream
I just want to be back where I’ve been
I just want to be back where I’ve been



On Honolulu Bay (Larry W. Jones 01/13/2005) (song#3560)

 

Honey, come with me in my canoe
As you see, there’s seats for two
There’s a moonlit place I want to go
Where the tradewinds gently blow

Honolulu bay right now awaits
It’s the place at night to congregate
We’ll listen to the music from the land
In our canoe at Waikiki’s golden sand

Guitars strumming, beach boys humming
Everybody’s chumming on Honolulu bay
Come on, we’ll paddle out that way
We’ll watch the guys and girls hula swaying
While the moonlight on the water’s playing
And I’ll let you steal my heart away
On Honolulu bay

Honolulu bay right now awaits
It’s the place at night to congregate
We’ll listen to the music from the land
In our canoe at Waikiki’s golden sand

We’ll watch the guys and girls hula swaying
While the moonlight on the water’s playing
And I’ll let you steal my heart away
On Honolulu bay



Moana By The Banyan Tree (Larry W. Jones 01/18/2005) (song#3561)

 

Where the sand is gold and the beaches wide
Moana dances by the ebbing tide
She does the hula down at Waikiki
While I strum my ukulele by the banyan tree

Moana is my polynesian queen of Oahu
She’s the prettiest scene of Hawaii too
I gave her my heart by the silver sea
As I strummed my ukulele by the banyan tree

No other maid have I ever seen
Like Moana, my polynesian island queen
Her dark brown eyes I love to see
As I strum my ukulele by the banyan tree

Moana is my polynesian queen of Oahu
She’s the prettiest scene of Hawaii too
I gave her my heart by the silver sea
As I strummed my ukulele by the banyan tree

No other maid have I ever seen
Like Moana, my polynesian island queen
Her dark brown eyes I love to see
As I strum my ukulele by the banyan tree

Her dark brown eyes I love to see
As I strum my ukulele by the banyan tree



Old Hawaiian Moon (Larry W. Jones 01/18/2005) (song#3562)

 

Long have I been away, as sailors say
From my home in old Hawaii
Once in a while, dreams that beguile
Seems to come and call to me
To return back to that little grass shack
Over in old Hawaii

Old Hawaiian moon, Old Hawaiian moon
You know I long for you
Your yellow beams, each night in dreams
Shine upon my love that’s true

Old Hawaiian moon, Old Hawaiian moon
You know why I’m lonesome and blue
I need that sweetheart mine for whom I pine
To know that I’ll come sailing soon
Together we’ll set a date in June
And get those island guitars in tune
For a wedding that can’t come too soon
Underneath that old Hawaiian moon

When I sail home with the gale and foam
Back to old Hawaii
I’ll never roam from where I belong
Cause my own true love is there for me

Guitars will ring as love takes wing
As that girl will welcome me
And I’ve made up my mind
To leave old sailing ships behind
For my old Hawaii

Together we’ll set a date in June
And get those island guitars in tune
For a wedding that can’t come too soon
Underneath that old Hawaiian moon



By Stars Above (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2005) (song#3563)

 

Aloha ‘oe, my love, the pipe is played
From o’re the lee it blew
The wind is fair, so too, the waves
Aloha ‘oe, my love, to you

Aloha ‘oe, farewell, haul the sails above
Through gales we’ll bound the main
Weep not for me, my own true love
For I’ll return around to you again

The isle recedes, the golden moon
Shines its light upon the blue
Wind has filled our sails, and soon
It will waft me far from you

Yet, my heart is with you, love
So, please don’t grieve for me
For I am yours, and by stars above
I will love you eternally

The isle recedes, the golden moon
Shines its light upon the blue
Wind has filled our sails, and soon
It will waft me far from you

Yet, my heart is with you, love
So, please don’t grieve for me
For I am yours, and by stars above
I will love you eternally

For I am yours, and by stars above
I will love you eternally



Hold Me In Your Memory (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2005) (song#3564)

 

O’er waves afar I sail today
And through the night so far away
My home is the sea, it’s true
But my thoughts return to you

Fair the breeze mid cloudy sky
Storms will come and seas run high
Yet, one hope I hold to me
That you hold me in your memory
That you hold me in your memory

When I arrive upon a distant shore
In case I see your face no more
May there shine a light in the darkest hour
On your heart and mine with all love’s power

For in sadness we were doomed to part
For in sorrow here now dwells my heart
Yet, one hope I hold to me
That you hold me in your memory
That you hold me in your memory



Crazy Beach Boy Dream (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2005) (song#3565)

 

Warm kalua and a surfboard
Big waves are on the way
Today I’m on the north shore
Overlookin’ Waimea bay

Surf’s been up for three days runnin’
My bones are feelin’ tired inside
But there’s no way I’ll be shunnin’
Today big waves I’m gonna ride

Silver sand and golden medals
Keep my feet just hangin’ on
Hula girls wearin’ red rose pedals
Will cheer me on until I’m gone

Crests of the waves I’ve traveled
And the bottom of the trough I’ve seen
I’m like a cowboy in the saddle
On this crazy beach boy dream

There’s no gold watch in my pocket
I guess never will there be
But down those waves I’ll be a rocket
Ridin’ that board free as the breeze

Silver sand and golden medals
Keep my feet just hangin’ on
Hula girls wearin’ red rose pedals
Will cheer me on until I’m gone

Crests of the waves I’ve traveled
And the bottom of the trough I’ve seen
I’m like a cowboy in the saddle
On this crazy beach boy dream



Cane Fields (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2005) (song#3566)

 

I remember the cane fields
Where the shorebirds gently fly
And the deep blue waves of the sea

I remember friendships sealed
As my childhood hurried by
And my island waiting there for me

That old golden tropic moon
Shining over Waikiki
I remember being there
I remember an island tune
Beneath a tall palm tree
That calls on the tradewind air

I remember my island love
And a last kiss she shared with me
By the green cane fields of home

That old golden tropic moon
Shining over Waikiki
I remember being there
I remember an island tune
Beneath a tall palm tree
That calls on the tradewind air

I remember my island love
And a last kiss she shared with me
By the green cane fields of home
By those green lovely cane fields
Of my home sweet island home



Ship Ahoy Sailor Man (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2005) (song#3567)

 

I said that I would leave the ocean
I said that I would leave the sea
I said with such emotion
This devotion wasn’t meant for me

But then I heard a familiar voice
As if someone else had made my choice
It was the wild blue ocean calling me
Calling me back to the wild blue sea

Ship ahoy, sailor man
Ship ahoy, sailor man
Your devotion was meant for me
Leave your island sand for the deep blue sea

I threw a lehua lei in the ocean
On the way it called out to me
Your one true love with such devotion
Is here on the deep blue sea

Ship ahoy, sailor man
Ship ahoy, sailor man
Your devotion was meant for me
Leave your island sand for the deep blue sea

Ship ahoy, sailor man
Leave your island sand for the deep blue sea



Twilight Sight Of You (Larry W. Jones 01/19/2005) (song#3568)

 

Summertime and sunshine and dreams of you
Birds of paradise flew through the blue
Tuberoses bloom there all year long
But only the tradewind air still bears my song

Maui chimes are in my memory so dear
Sometimes I still see you so clear
I’m lonesome for your love, it’s true
I need tonight, the twilight sight of you

Maybe we will meet at Lahaina town
Down where sweet love is still around
You know it would feel so divine
To steal away just one more time

Maybe my dreams won’t be in vain
The theme of love is still the same
It would be a joy for me to see
That your heart employs some sympathy

So, I’ll just wait til the sun goes down
Maybe we will meet at Lahaina town
I need to know if your love is true
I need tonight, the twilight sight of you
The twilight sight of you



Polynesian Mys’try (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2005) (song#3569)

 

The last page now is his’try
Of strolling golden sands in paradise
She was a polynesian mys’try
With long black hair and dark brown eyes
I held her hand in mine underneath the stars
Now I understand how time has no bars
Cause that polynesian mys’try now I find
Still lingers in my heart and on my mind

I know her heart must have been broken
By the way her gentle tears then fell
When we had to part with words unspoken
And the last page was Aloha ‘oe farewell

Her dark brown eyes then told me
That there was love that we both failed to find
And it’s still a mys’try to me
How that last page of his’try could unwind

The last page now is his’try
Of strolling golden sands in paradise
She was a polynesian mys’try
With long black hair and dark brown eyes
I held her hand in mine underneath the stars
Now I understand how time has no bars
Cause that polynesian mys’try now I find
Still lingers in my heart and on my mind

But the last page now is done
Our love had only just begun
She was a polynesian mys’try
A dream that now I wish I’d won

I held her hand in mine underneath the stars
Now I understand how time has no bars
Cause that polynesian mys’try now I find
Still lingers in my heart and on my mind



Warmer In A Tropic Zone (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2005) (song#3570)

 

Just send me back to old Lahaina
If I should die while on this sail
Bury me down in old Lahaina town
Where I won’t have to fight this gale
Lay me down in old Lahaina town
Even though I’ll be as cold as stone
Somehow I’ll feel warmer in a tropic zone

Lookin’ for horizons that were greener
I was young when I first sailed from home
With nothing in my blue jeans pocket
I signed aboard this old ship’s docket
And I set my sights on parts unknown

I tried some arctic whaling
But the cold winds there were always wailing
And wind in the rigging chilled me to the bone
Now I know why all kind of men love to roam
But there ain’t no time for love
When you’re sailing all alone

Just send me back to old Lahaina
If I should die while on this sail
Bury me down in old Lahaina town
Where I won’t have to fight this gale
Lay me down in old Lahaina town
Even though I’ll be as cold as stone
Somehow I’ll feel warmer in a tropic zone



I’ll Give You My Love (Larry W. Jones 01/20/2005) (song#3571)

 

I’ll give you birds of paradise that sing
I’ll give you my heart and everything
I’ll give you a kiss
But oh, so much more than this
I’ll give you my love

Here in this paradise, you’ll have it made
Palm trees will cool you in their shade
With gentle winds of trade
You’re not just any rose, I see
The tradewind blows your love to me
I’ll give you my love endlessly

And if there ever comes a storm
I’ll give you shelter, safe and warm
I’ll give you my heart
And right from the start thereof
I’ll give you my love

You’re not just any rose, I see
The tradewind blows your love to me
I’ll give you my love endlessly

And if there ever comes a storm
I’ll give you shelter, safe and warm
I’ll give you my heart
And right from the start thereof
I’ll give you my love



My Heart Is Beholden (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2005) (song#3572)

 

If island sand is golden
And skies of paradise are blue
Then my heart is beholden
To a love like yours that’s true

Your heart is made of finest gold, finest gold
Lovelight shines from it so true
Its home is a form of fairest mold, fairest mold
Of all things blessed, the islands made it you

If island sand is golden
And skies of paradise are blue
Then my heart is beholden
To a love like yours that’s true

A sweet tuberose is graceful as it grows, as it grows
It gives happiness here by the sea
Your face is much more beautiful, I know, yes I know
And it’s beautiful that you gave your heart to me

If island sand is golden
And skies of paradise are blue
Then my heart is beholden
To a love like yours that’s true

Yes, my heart is beholden
To a love like yours that’s true



Thank You Mr Captain (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2005) (song#3573)

 

Thank you, Mr captain, for everything you bring
But thank you most for bringin’ my love back home again
She’ll dock at Aloha tower, ’bout a quarter til nine
That Honolulu clipper, I know will be on time

I hear that big ship’s whistle, out across the reef
I’ll toss a lei to greet her, and love will end my grief
Soon my island baby, back by my side will be
That Honolulu clipper’s bringin’ happiness to me

I remember the day she went away
The warm tradewinds were feeling cold
But now I see her across the bay
And my blue tropic moon is turning gold

Sweet Maui chimes say that she loves me
And that soon she’ll be all mine
Islands have called her from across the sea
And that Honolulu clipper is right on time

I see steam from the stack a-rollin’
And it’s time to welcome her back
My poor heart she’ll be consolin’
In our home sweet little grass covered shack

I know she sees the palm trees swayin’
From the rail of the Matson line
Thank you, Mr captain
For bringin’ my island baby back on time

Back On My Island Home (Larry W. Jones 01/21/2005) (song#3575)

 

Sometimes I wonder how the folks are doing
Back on my island home
I wonder if they know how storms are brewing
Out here sailing o’re the foam
I wonder what they say about the day I sailed away
And left behind all the friends I’ve known

I seem to hear the longhorns lowin’ on the range
Paniolo cowboys playin’ songs that they exchange
I can hear the shorebirds cry as they’re flying by
And as o’re this boundless sea I roam
I wonder how the folks are doing
Back on my island home

That little cottage on the Parker ranch had lots of charm
Where mother’s ohana love shielded me from harm
And my sweetheart, too, promised to be true
No matter where I have to roam
I wonder how she’s doing
Back on my island home

I seem to hear the longhorns lowin’ on the range
Paniolo cowboys playin’ songs that they exchange
I can hear the shorebirds cry as they’re flying by
And as o’re this boundless sea I roam
I wonder how the folks are doing
Back on my island home

I wonder how the folks are doing
Back on my island home



Roses Will Bloom In Bora Bora (Larry W. Jones 01/22/2005) (song#3576)

 

I’m going back to Bora Bora
Where I’ll see my Luana Lou
I’m going back to Bora Bora
Where tropic skies are deepest blue

When I left fair Bora Bora
Luana shed a tear and cried
I promised that when I returned
Luana Lou would be my bride

Luana Lou, she is so pretty
Her polynesian eyes are like a spell
I’m going back to Bora Bora
And I’ll never say again farewell

Luana Lou knows that I love her
Soon we’ll be married by the bay
Roses will bloom in Bora Bora
On our wedding day

Luana Lou knows that I love her
Soon we’ll be married by the bay
Roses will bloom in Bora Bora
On our wedding day



Awaking In Your Arms (Larry W. Jones 01/25/2005) (song#3577)

 

Tonight when I go to sleep
I know I can’t keep from scheming
That I’ll be awaking in your arms
The arms of one I’m dreaming of

And when they turn out the tiki lights
Stars in the night will be beaming
To light my dreaming with your charms
There’s no harm in your sweet love

I knew one day love would come ashore
Someone whose heart I could explore
Tonight my dream will be a song of love
You seem to be an angel from above

And when they turn out the tiki lights
Stars in the night will be beaming
To light my dreaming with your charms
There’s no harm in your sweet love

Tonight when I go to sleep
I know I can’t keep from scheming
That I’ll be awaking in your arms
The arms of one I’m dreaming of



Some Island Sand (Larry W. Jones 01/25/2005) (song#3578)

 

I don’t have a dream of being a king
With all the things that such could bring
Someone else can be supreme
I’ve no illusions of being grand
Just give me some island sand

I don’t want to be the head of industry
Instead, the sea’s for me
Just give me some island sand

I don’t want to be president
Someone bent to rule and represent
I’m just meant for some island sand

Of cares, I don’t care to get in it
I don’t want to share that a minute
An island man, I’ve always been it
Just give me some island sand

If I could have a European queen
With Versailles and a bowling green
I’d demand without being mean
Just give me some island sand

Give me some island sand, my friend
An island with a soft tradewind
A lifetime to spend there would be grand
In island sand

A full yellow moon for a fellow to croon
An ukulele and an old log drum
A steel guitar so I could hear it hum
I’d go whole hog at the luau, chum
Just give me some island sand
Somewhere in a tropical sea
An island man is what I’ll be



Lure Of Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 01/25/2005) (song#3579)

 

I was down on the shores of Hawaii
There seemed to be more stars above
Tradewinds were over there sighing
A story of sweet island love

My heart just couldn’t resist it
Lis’ning to that island refrain
No one escapes the lure of Hawaii
You’re sure to return there again

On golden sands of Hawaii’s shore
I met a sweet girl whom I so adore
Those years have gone and now are o’re
On golden sand I held her hand
Down on Hawaii’s shore

Now I am far from Hawaii
Far from musical island bands
There’s no cure for the lure of Hawaii
Anyone who’s been there understands

Thoughts invade my dreams at night
Of palm tree shade where breakers curl
My heart breaks for that soft moonlight
How ‘oft I dream of my island girl



Now Sounds The Bell (Larry W. Jones 01/26/2005) (song#3580)

 

Look into my eyes, dear
They’re an open book, as you can see
Place your hand in mine, dear
Chase those tears and make them flee

We knew one day that I must part
Though blue may be our broken hearts
Oh, farewell forever, Aloha ‘oe
Now sounds the bell of ship and sea

Can nothing turn this heart from love of you
Though I may try, I know tears won’t be few
Aloha ‘oe, never again to see this lovely shore
Aloha ‘oe, our parting will be forever more

Never more shall I meet you
Each day will greet this sad adieu
My heart is clad in sorrow
That adds only to tomorrow’s missing you

We knew one day that I must part
Though blue may be our broken hearts
Oh, farewell forever, Aloha ‘oe
Now sounds the bell of ship and sea

Can nothing turn this heart from love of you
Though I may try, I know tears won’t be few
Aloha ‘oe, never again to see this lovely shore
Aloha ‘oe, our parting will be forever more



Island Angel On The Shore (Larry W. Jones 01/27/2005) (song#3581)

 

You must be an island angel
Correct me if I’m wrong
So, before you disappear into the blue
I’ll stroll along with you

I was dreaming of an island angel
To help me paddle my canoe
So, before you disappear into the blue
I’ll stroll along with you

I don’t see any little flaw at all
Although I have three or four
You came along when the islands called
An island angel on the shore

You must be an island angel
Correct me if I’m wrong
So, before you disappear into the blue
I’ll stroll along with you

I don’t see any little flaw at all
Although I have three or four
You came along when the islands called
An island angel on the shore



Island Song Bird Trill (Larry W. Jones 01/27/2005) (song#3582)

 

Bird of paradise, oh, bird of paradise
Sing now your sweet song by the bay
Bird of paradise, oh, bird of paradise
Shadows will come to greet the end of day

Oh, bird of paradise, lift now up your voice
For in the sunshine is when you rejoice
For in the sunshine is when you rejoice

Bird of paradise, oh, bird of paradise
Sing while it is day, before the evening still
Bird of paradise, oh, bird of paradise
Sweet is your lay, an island song bird trill

Bird of paradise, oh, bird of paradise
Your cloak is bright when seen on isles afar
Bird of paradise, oh, bird of paradise
Sing your song of island love where ‘ere you are

Oh, bird of paradise, lift now up your voice
For in the sunshine is when you rejoice
For in the sunshine is when you rejoice



Steal Away To The Old Sugar Mill (Larry W. Jones 01/27/2005) (song#3583)

 

Tonight, love, when shadows are falling
In Manoa valley and o’re the mill stream
And the tradewinds softly are calling
And the island’s preparing to dream

Then, love, so that I not have to worry
I’ll wait down by the old sugar mill
Listening for your footsteps, so hurry
As the full moon climbs over the hill

A secret I’ve held in my heart for you, love
Tradewinds and I will whisper to you
When the stars are all shining above
Then you’ll know that my promise is true

One kiss and it’s no longer a secret
You’ll understand, I’m sure that you will
Words of Aloha will convey all my love
So, steal away to the old sugar mill

One kiss and it’s no longer a secret
You’ll understand, I’m sure that you will
Words of Aloha will convey all my love
So, steal away to the old sugar mill



First Gift By The Sea (Larry W. Jones 01/28/2005) (song#3584)

 

If in this island there’s a flower
That to me is prettier than the rest
It’s the tuberose, snow white tuberose
The island rose that I love best

And here is the reason it’s so dear to me
It’s clear as to what I’m speaking of
Because it was the first gift by the sea
From one who will be forever my love
Because it was the first gift by the sea
From one who will be forever my love

Often I go to the shore where I dwell
Where island flowers, their perfume abound
I seek all the more and linger a spell
Where snow white tuberoses are found

And here is the reason it’s so dear to me
It’s clear as to what I’m speaking of
Because it was the first gift by the sea
From one who will be forever my love
Because it was the first gift by the sea
From one who will be forever my love

Of all that my heart learns to prize
Until life itself draws to a close
I’ll return to that part of paradise
That my eyes saw as true love’s rose

And here is the reason it’s so dear to me
Because it was the first gift by the sea
From one who will be forever my love
From one who will be forever my love



On The Island Of My Dreams (Larry W. Jones 01/28/2005) (song#3585)

 

In the shade of tall palm trees
On the island of my dreams
Roses grow where the tradewind blows
And the fish dance in the streams
As the days pass by so slowly
The tropic sun sets, oh, so lowly
And my heart knows what it means
On the island of my dreams

On this island in the stream
On the island of my dreams
By the tidal pool, with the right bait
The breeze is cool and the fish wait
And to think I used to be a rover
Watching white clouds passing over
Life now is happiness supreme
On the island of my dreams

Warm raindrops fall and make a rainbow
Seems like it’s just over there
See all the fields of tall cane grow
Reveals twilight time is in the air

The tropic sun is setting now before me
Time for home and love waiting for me
Keeping her love is my eternal theme
On the island of my dreams

In the shade of tall palm trees
On the island of my dreams
Roses grow where the tradewind blows
And the fish dance in the streams
As the days pass by so slowly
The tropic sun sets, oh, so lowly
And my heart knows what it means
On the island of my dreams



Immortal Song Of Love (Larry W. Jones 01/28/2005) (song#3586)

 

As twilight begins to fall
Shadows of the evening find
Beneath the stars so small
A fair island maiden divine

Loneliness in her heart she feels
Emptiness though filled with love
In hopefullness she appeals
To the heavens up above

She must keep her hope now strong
For the one she’s dreaming of
In her heart’s portal dwells a song
To impart words that belong
To her immortal song of love

But the words in her broken heart
Aren’t heard when love’s far apart
Only the stars up in the sky
Will see the lonely maiden cry

In her heart’s portal dwells a song
To impart words that belong
To her immortal song of love
Words that belong
To her immortal song of love



Down Waimanalo Road (Larry W. Jones 01/28/2005) (song#3587)

 

I grew up on the island kinda poor
I never knew what money was, for sure
But ohana love we always had to spare
Even on days when groceries weren’t there

I had to use my imagination
To fight the blues of my situation
I could choose how to carry my load
Down Waimanalo Road

I found a place down deep inside
Where I could keep my dream alive
And one thing that I found there
Was a song to sing without a care

A dream lifts you up when you’re down
Like gifts of a silver cup and crown
I lived by the unwritten code
On Waimanalo Road

A paradise island is a state of mind
Where the tropic sun shines all the time
Tradewinds blow and the ocean flows
By Waimanalo Road

Waimanalo’s a place here by the sea
Waimanalo’s pace sets my heart at ease
I have a dream and a small abode
Down Waimanalo Road



Summer On The Isle (Larry W. Jones 01/29/2005) (song#3588)

 

This tropic day will soon see twilight
We’ll say Aloha ‘oe to love, luaus and poi
Though this goodbye will never seem right
I’ll remember island summer as a time of joy

I’ll be satisfied, we strolled together in summer
I held you in my arms here in Hawaii blue
But when autumn comes tomorrow
I know there’ll be no sorrow
Tradewinds will send a memory
Of island summer and you

The tiki fire will smolder into ashes
Island love was like a flame for awhile (for awhile )
But I won’t be lonesome when my mem’ry flashes
Oh, no, I’ll have these…
Reminders of you and summer on the isle

The tiki fire will smolder into ashes
Island love was like a flame for awhile (for awhile )

But I won’t be lonesome when my mem’ry flashes
Oh, no, I’ll have these…
Reminders of you and summer on the isle

But I won’t be lonesome when my mem’ry flashes
Oh, no, I’ll have these…
Reminders of you and summer on the isle



Bound For Hawaiian Sand (Larry W. Jones 01/30/2005) (song#3589)

 

I’m tired of this old mainland
Tired of the look and feel
I’m tired and I don’t understand
Why dreams can’t turn out real
So, I’m gonna sprout some wings
Fly a route to find my dreams
To that isle of paradise
Neath those blue Hawaiian skies

I’m bound for Hawaii, bound for Hawaii
Bound for that Hawaiian sand
To hear an ukulele and ‘uli ‘uli rattle
Watch paniolos herd longhorn cattle
I’m bound for Hawaiian sand

I’ll ride range on the Parker Ranch
Exchange this gray for tropic sun
Old Hawaiian cowboys never die
They always live in paradise

When I’ve saved up a little money
I’ll find me a wahini honey
We’ll find a cottage with roses growin’ wild
Make a home for us and a little keiki child

We’ll have luaus down by the bay
I’ll sing her songs at the end of day
Songs about the moon in velvet skies
And the tropic stars twinkling in her eyes

I’m bound for Hawaii, bound for Hawaii
Bound for that Hawaiian sand
To hear an ukulele and ‘uli ‘uli rattle
Watch paniolos herd longhorn cattle
I’m bound for Hawaiian sand



I’ll Follow My Dream (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2005) (song#3590)

 

Tomorrow I’ll be in a tropic zone
Yesterday was filled with rain
So, today I’ll follow my dream

Tomorrow I’ll be singing an island song
Yesterday was filled with rain
So, today I’ll follow my dream

Time, you know, does not stand still
But the island’s pace is nice and slow
So, I’ve no more time to kill
I’m bound for where the tradewinds blow, oooh

Tomorrow I’ll be in a tropic zone
Yesterday was filled with rain
So, today I’ll follow my dream

Tomorrow I’ll be singing an island song
Yesterday was filled with rain
So, today I’ll follow my dream

Time, you know, does not stand still
But the island’s pace is nice and slow
So, I’ve no more time to kill
I’m bound for where the tradewinds blow, oooh

Time, you know, does not stand still
So, today I’ll follow my dream
I’m bound for where the tradewinds blow



I’ll Stroll Along Alone (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2005) (song#3591)

 

I’ll stroll along alone
Though I know I’ll be lonesome
I don’t care if I stroll along alone
If I’m aware that you’ll be lonesome too

I’ll stroll along alone
And if anyone asks me why
I’ll just say I’m feeling fine
And that I’ve got a dream to find
A dream I had that made my heart so glad

My thoughts will always be near you
Like a guiding star
You will hear them in the tradewinds too
No matter how far away you are
And maybe you’ll make my dream come true

If you’re strolling along alone
Then bring your love and stroll beside me
Until my love can guide you by the sea
I’ll stroll along alone

My thoughts will always be near you
Like a guiding star
You will hear them in the tradewinds too
No matter how far away you are
And maybe you’ll make my dream come true

If you’re strolling along alone
Then bring your love and stroll beside me
Until my love can guide you by the sea
I’ll stroll along alone



All Of Nothing (Larry W. Jones 02/03/2005) (song#3592)

 

When I was young I had my health
And dreamed that someday I’d be rich
I signed aboard a ship for wealth
Just to try and satisfy that itch

After awhile I had everything
But it evaporated like the dew
Just like a song you try to sing
When ocean foam in storms debut

And when I thought my dreams came true
And that I’d live in style awhile
They disappeared into the blue
Behind my ship of dreams a thousand miles

So, I’ll have all of nothing all the time
If all I get is a little of something for awhile
Back when only a dime was mine
I could find the time to laugh and smile

And when I thought my dreams came true
And that I’d live in style awhile
They disappeared into the blue
Behind my ship of dreams a thousand miles

So, I’ll have all of nothing all the time
If all I get is a little of something for awhile
Back when only a dime was mine
I could find the time to laugh and smile



Within Your Heart (Larry W. Jones 02/04/2005) (song#3593)

 

Over on Kauai, garden island fair
A brown skinned boy and girl were living there
In the tradewind air they fell in love
Neath the spell of twinkling tropic stars above

Leilani said to Makani, what would bring you joy
Makani thought about a dream in his head
Then Leilani said, how about some luau poi
But this is what Makani said instead

I don’t care for money, but I swear I do love honey
And I would like a rainbow without the rain
A little bit of squeezin’, while the tradewinds are a breezin’
And yes, I’ll take another bowl of luau poi again

I want to build a little cottage on Kauai’s shore
For someone from whom I’ll never want to part
Come here, Leilani close, I want you the most
And I want my dream to come true within your heart

I don’t care for money, but I swear I do love honey
And I would like a rainbow without the rain
A little bit of squeezin’, while the tradewinds are a breezin’
And yes, I’ll take another bowl of luau poi again

I want to build a little cottage on Kauai’s shore
For someone from whom I’ll never want to part
Come here, Leilani close, I want you the most
And I want my dream to come true within your heart



Enchantress Of The Southern Seas (Larry W. Jones 02/04/2005) (song#3594)

 

A few leagues below the equator line
I found intrigue in the warm sunshine
For there upon an island shore
I found a maiden whom I so adore

Enchantress of the southern seas
Sweet are you in my memories
I sailed on the summer tide
And hailed you on that tropic shore
Though you’re no longer by my side
My heart will yearn for you evermore

Those balmy nights we strolled in the sand
Were moonlit nights in a magic land
Lips that I kissed in the tropic breeze
Still are calling to me
Enchantress of the southern seas

For a month or more on the waves I had sailed
On a southern shore, it was you I hailed
And when I dropped the anchor in the bay
In a little harbor that was oh, so fair
On the soft summer air I heard that day
The sound of your voice that was oh, so rare

Enchantress of the southern seas
Sweet are you in my memories
I sailed on the summer tide
And hailed you on that tropic shore
Though you’re no longer by my side
My heart will yearn for you evermore

Those balmy nights we strolled in the sand
Were moonlit nights in a magic land
Lips that I kissed in the tropic breeze
Still are calling to me
Enchantress of the southern seas



My Love Across The Sea (Larry W. Jones 02/04/2005) (song#3595)

 

I can hear uleleles ringing
From the shore of far Waikiki
They put my heart to singing
Sweet are those island melodies

On an island where sunshine means flowers
Someone, it seems, is waiting for me
I spend my time counting the hours
Til I can return far over the sea

My love is there in fair Hawaii
Strolling under tall palm trees
My dreams are there in fair Hawaii
Which holds my fondest memories

Whenever evening twilight shadows fall
They always bring mem’ries I recall
Aloha from my love across the sea
Aloha, please return to me

Every day I find that I’m so lonely
My thoughts are oh, so far away
In island sand, one I love only
Waits by that Honolulu bay

Whenever evening twilight shadows fall
They always bring mem’ries I recall
Aloha from my love across the sea
Aloha, please return to me



Blue Blue Ocean (Larry W. Jones 02/04/2005) (song#3596)

 

There are bluebirds in the tall palm trees
There’s an island song sung on the breeze
Blue, blue ocean, why are you so blue

Tonight, blue light is coming from the moon
Blue is the light from tropic stars in June
Why must they bring sadness to me and you

Today, I can only sing of days gone by
That must be the way that lovers sigh
Why is your song of island love so sad
Blue ocean, blue, blue ocean

Your waters hold the mem’ry of my dreams
You sing so freely of the lips I pressed
Blue ocean, blue, blue ocean
My heart’s depressed, just an island in your stream

I can’t forget that night in our blue canoe
Her eyes lost their light when we said Aloha ‘oe adieu
With emotion strong, I hear your ocean song

Tell me what’s wrong, blue, blue ocean
Could it be true that I’m as blue as you



South Pacific Starlight (Larry W. Jones 02/05/2005) (song#3597)

 

Sweet tiare of love, I’m broken hearted
You and I should not have parted
For moonlight shadows gently falling
Have me, tonight, of you recalling

South Pacific starlight
O’er blue Pacific waters gleaming
Your songs of love at twilight
Makes my heart long with dreaming

You and I strolled beneath the palms
You had all the south seas charms
Love we both felt on that June night
Neath south Pacific starlight

To that blue south Pacific ocean
My return to you will bring me cheer
I’ll return with deep devotion
For I will always want you near

South Pacific starlight
O’er blue Pacific waters gleaming
Your songs of love at twilight
Makes my heart long with dreaming

You and I strolled beneath the palms
You had all the south seas charms
Love we both felt on that June night
Neath south Pacific starlight



Chant Of The Island Melody (Larry W. Jones 02/05/2005) (song#3598)

 

See the lazy tradewinds swaying
Through the pandanus and tall palm trees
For us, the island is softly playing
A song of love heard on the breeze

Dreamily it beckons
The chant of the island melody
Lovers come to reckon
That love can’t be set free
Under the spell of
The chant of the island melody

For islands sing of primitive charms
Never limited in thoughts and dreams
Of tropical nights and loving arms
The chant of the island melody
Is calling again to me

See the lazy tradewinds swaying
Through the pandanus and tall palm trees
For us, the island is softly playing
A song of love heard on the breeze

Dreamily it beckons
The chant of the island melody
Lovers come to reckon
That love can’t be set free
Under the spell of
The chant of the island melody



Something New In Old Lahaina Town (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2005) (song#3599)

 

There’s something new in old Lahaina town
You strolled in the sand by my side
There’s something new in old Lahaina town
Your love will keep me satisfied

Tradewinds whispered your name to me
Birds of paradise sang along in time
A new song in old Lahaina by the sea
Sounds to me like old sweet Maui chimes

There’s something new in old Lahaina town
My heart was down, tears in my eyes
But this new kind of happiness I’ve found
Will last for years here in this paradise

And there’s a brand new rainbow in the sky
A sign of new found joy that’s mine
And old Lahaina town is the reason why
It’s the season for lips that taste like wine

Tradewinds whispered your name to me
Birds of paradise sang along in time
A new song in old Lahaina by the sea
Sounds to me like old sweet Maui chimes

There’s something new in old Lahaina town
You strolled in the sand by my side
There’s something new in old Lahaina town
Your love will keep me satisfied



Thirty Six Hundred (Larry W. Jones 02/06/2005) (song#3600)

 

Thirty six hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Thirty six hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Thirty six hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun

If you ever ask me how long for you my love will be
Thirty six hundred lifetimes, then we would wait and see
If I could do it over, not a thing would I ever change
I could sing you island songs of love that I’ve arranged

If you ever ask me how deep for you my love will be
I can only tell you that my love is deeper than the sea
Thirty six hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

Thirty six hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Thirty six hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Thirty six hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
Thirty six hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
