Waimanalo Blues
by Arlo Guthrie



Wind's gonna blow, so I'm gonna go
Down on the road again
Starting where the mountains left me
I'm up where I began

Where I will go, the wind only knows
Good times around the bend
Get in my car, goin' too far
Never comin' back again

Tired and worn, I woke up this mornin'
Found that I was confused
Spun right around and found I had lost
The things that I couldn't lose

The beaches they sell to build their hotels
My father's and I once knew
Birds all along sunlight at dawn
Singing Waimanalo blues

Down on the road with mountains so old
Far on the country side
Birds on the wing forget in a while
So I'm headed for the windward side

All of your dreams, sometimes it just seems
That I'm just along for the ride
Some they will cry because they have pride
For someone who's loved here died

The beaches they sell to build their hotels
My father's and I once knew
Birds all along sunlight at dawn
Singing Waimanalo blues
