***CAPO 2***


INTRO:   A    D

D                 G                  D
Proudly swept the rain clouds by the cliffs
   A                        
As on it glided through the trees
           D          G            D
Still following, with glee, the liko
      E      A          D
The a hihi lehua of the valley
CHORUS:

G          D
Aloha oe, aloha oe
     A                D
E ke onaona noho i ka lipo
    G               D
One fond embrace, a hoi ae au
A             D
Until we meet again


MEDLEY: D   G   D   A   D   G   D   E   A   D


(Repeat Chorus)
Ha`aheo ka ua i nâ pali
Ke nihi a`ela i ka nahele
E hahai (uhai) ana paha i ka liko
Pua `âhihi lehua o uka

Hui:
Aloha `oe, aloha `oe
E ke onaona noho i ka lipo
One fond embrace,
A ho`i a`e au
Until we meet again

`O ka hali`a aloha i hiki mai
Ke hone a`e nei i
Ku`u Manawa
`O `oe nô ka`u ipo aloha
A loko e hana nei

Maopopo ku`u `ike i ka nani
Nâ pua rose o Maunawili
I laila hia`ia nâ manu
Miki`ala i ka nani o ka lipo

Proudly swept the rain
by the cliffs
As it glided through the trees
Still following ever the bud
The `ahihi lehua of the vale

Chorus:
Farewell to you, farewell to you
The charming one who dwells
In the shaded bowers
One fond embrace,
'Ere I depart
Until we meet again

Sweet memories
come back to me
Bringing fresh remembrances
Of the past
Dearest one, yes,
you are mine own
From you,
true love shall never depart

I have seen and watched
your loveliness
The sweet rose of Maunawili
And 'tis there the birds
of love dwell
And sip the honey from your lips
