    Default "Honolulu" by Michael Martin Murphy

    Anybody have the chords and lyrics to this? It's from his "Cosmic Cowboy Souvenir" album. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Ok, I got the words if anyone is interested in them, but I still need the chords. Tough to figure out.

    I guess it would help to post the lyrics, wouldn't it?

    HONOLULU

    When I was three I went to Honolulu,
    Dad wore aloha shirts, Mom wore a muu-muu
    The centipedes are all that I remember,
    I think I dropped my toy drum in the cinders
    Down into the mouth of some volcano near Honolulu

    Granddaddy used to fight in the Pacific Fleet;
    Grandma used to say the air was warm and sweet.
    But at last we had to move back to the States;
    Back to the land of natural gas and rattlesnakes
    Granddaddy stayed and opened up a laundry out in Honolulu.

    My Honolulu granddaddy drove a Cadillac;
    He did card tricks and told us how the deck was stacked
    He told us dirty jokes about the Naval corps;
    And how one day the airplanes started up a war
    And how they buried bodies in long trenches in Honolulu

    Oh it used to be so nice
    When he took us on his knee
    And told us about that tropical paradise
    It was alright.

    Someday Im going back to Honolulu;
    Ill wear aloha shirts, shell wear a muu-muu
    Hawaii calls and who am I to stop it?
    I think Ill buy a new toy drum and drop it
    Down into the mouth of some volcano in Honolulu

    Aloha oe, aloha, boys,
    Aloha oe, aloha toys
    Until we meet again.
