One Particular Harbor

======================

By Jimmy Buffett and Bobby Holcomb

Intro: E E A B B A E (repeat)

E A B

IA ORA TE NA-TURA [English translation: below]

B A E A B

E MEA A-ROFA TEIE AO NEI

E A B

IA ORA TE NA-TURA

B A E A B

E MEA A-ROFA TEIE AO NEI

E D

I know I don't get there often enough

E D

But God knows I surely try

E D

It's a magic kind of medicine

A G E

That no doctor could prescribe

E D

I used to rule my world from a pay phone

E D

And ships out on the sea

E

But now times are rough

D

And I got too much stuff

A G E

Can't explain the likes of me

Chorus:

E A B E

But there's this one particular harbor

A B E

So far but yet so near

A B E A

Where I see the days as they fade away

A B E

And finally disappear

B

But now I think about the good times

E

Down in the Caribbean sunshine

B

In my younger days I was so bad

B A E

Laughin' about all the fun we had

B

I've seen enough to feel the world spin

E

Mixin' different oceans meetin' cousins

B

Listen to the drummers and the night sounds

B A E

Listen to the singers make the world go round

(SOLO [repeats chorus chords])

IA ORA TE NATURA

E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI

IA ORA TE NATURA

E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI

Lakes below the mountains

Flow into the sea

Like oils applied to canvas

They permeate through me

And there's that one particular harbor

Sheltered from the wind

Where the children play on the shore each day

And all are safe within

A most mysterious calling harbor

So far but yet so near

Where I see the day when my hair's full gray

And I finally disappear

IA ORA TE NATURA [translation:]

E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI NATURE LIVES (LIFE TO NATURE)

IA ORA TE NATURA HAVE PITY FOR THE EARTH

E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI (LOVE THE EARTH)

UA PAU TE MAITAI NO TE FENUA BOUNTY OF THE LAND IS EXHAUSTED

TE ZAI NOA RA TE ORA O TE MITIE BUT THERE'S STILL ABUNDANCE

IN THE SEA
