                   C (x32010@1)             G (320003@1)                 C (x32010@1)    and the sun shines daily on the mountain top.

                                 F (133211@1)    I took a trip an a sailing ship

              C (x32010@1)                    G (320003@1)But I`m sad to say, I`m  on my way,

       C (x32010@1)                         F (133211@1)2. Down a the market you can hear

                C (x32010@1)        G (320003@1)               C (x32010@1)    ladies cry out what on the heads their bear.

                                    F (133211@1)    Haki, rice, salt and fish are nice

                   C (x32010@1)             G (320003@1)         C (x32010@1)    and the rum tastes fine any time of year. + CHORUS

                                    F (133211@1)    I must declare my heart is there,

                             C (x32010@1)             G (320003@1)          C (x32010@1)    though I have been from Maine to Mexico. + CHORUS
