six Miles  Misc. Unsigned Bands

[C]Twenty-six [Am7]miles a[Dm7]cross the [G]sea,
[C]Santa Cata[Am7]lina is a-[Dm7]waitin' for [G]me.
[C]Santa [Am7]Catalina, the [Dm7]island [G]of ro[C]mance,
ro[Am7]mance, ro[Dm7]mance, ro[G]mance.

[C]Water all a[Am7]round it [Dm7]every[G]where,
[C]Tropical [Am7]trees and the [Dm7]salty [G]air.
But for [C]me the [Am7]thing that's a-[Dm7]waitin' [G][C]mance[Dm7].   [C]  [C7]
It [Dm7]seems so [G]distant, [C]twenty-six [Am]miles a[C]way.
[F]Restin' in the [G]water, ser[C]ene.
I'd [Dm7]work for [G]anyone, [C]even the [Am7]Navy,
Who would [D]float me to my [Dm7]island [G]dream.
[C]Twenty- six [Am7]miles, so [Dm7]near, yet [G]far.
[C]I'd swim with just some [Am7]water-wings and [Dm7]my gui[G]tar.
I could [C]leave the [Am7]wings but I'll [Dm7]need the gui[G]tar
for ro[C]mance, ro[Am7]mance, ro[Dm7]mance, ro[G]mance.

[Dm7]A tropical [G]heaven [C]out in the [Am]ocean.
[F]Covered with [G]trees and [C]girls.
[Dm7]If I have to [G]swim, I'll [C]do it for[Am7]ever,
Till I'm [D]gazin' on those [Dm7]island [G]pearls.
[C]Forty kilo[Am7]meters in a [Dm7]leaky old [G]boat.
[C]Any old [Am7]thing that'll [Dm7]stay a[G]float.
When [C]we [Am7]arrive we'll [Dm7]all pro[G]mote
ro[C]mance, ro[Am7]mance, ro[Dm7]mance, ro[G]mance.
[C]Twenty-six [Am7]miles a[Dm7]cross the [G]sea.
[C]Santa Cata[Am7]lina is a-[F]waitin' for [G]me.(x2)(Fade)

A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
