8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Note:  This song is in the key of G, but the Chorus starts with a C chord.
Down by the south - ern sea,  There at Wai - ki - ki,
Some - one waits for me.  Be - neath the dream - y sum - mer moon,
Hearts are all in tune.  Lov - ers soft - ly croon,
Their plain - tive mel - o - dies of love.
Drif -ting and dream -ing,
While shad -ows fall.
Soft -ly at twi -light,
I hear you call.
Love's old sweet sto -ry,
Told with your eyes.
Drift -ing and dream -ing,
Sweet Par -a -dise.
