Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Vahevala  Kenny Loggins

[A]I'm thinking about when I was a sailor[Em]
[A]Spent my time on the open seas     [D]        [E]
[A]When we'd stay off the coast of Jamaic[Em]a
[D-D-D-A]                   I'd secretly steal ashore
[D-D-D-A]                  The natives were waiting for
[D-D-D-A]                   The boy with the lazy soul
[D-D-D-A]                     To sing with the sailor [E]
[A]Vahevala, homele[D]ss sailor
Vahevala, homeward sail away
Vahevala, homeless sailor
Vahevala, homeward sail away
[Em]Every evening I'd be gone       [A]
[Em]Back on board by break of dawn  [A]                   [E]

I'm thinking about the nights in Jamaica
Pretty girls dancin' here and there
Stole a keg and now I'm drunk as a sailor
The captain he don't know
Where Billy he done go
But I'm singing with native girls
The songs of a sailor


Every night in Jamaica I'd sing with the lady
And drink with the men till the morning appear
Healthy sunshine is fresh on my face
As the songs of the night puts the ring in my ear
