Trade Winds

by Bing Crosby

Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby (May 3, 1903 – October 14, 1977) was an American singer and actor. Crosby's trademark bass-baritone voice made him one of the best-selling recording artists of the 20th century, with over half a billion records in circulation.




Down where the trade winds play
Down where you lose the day
We found a new world where paradise starts
We traded hearts way down where the trade winds play
Music was everywhere, flowers were in her hair
Under an awning of silvery boughs
We traded vows the night that I sailed away
Oh trade winds, what are vows that lovers make
Oh trade winds, are they only made to break
When it is May again, I'll sail away again
Though I'm returning, it won't be the same
She traded her name way down where the trade winds play
