remember keys
Bb
The light was leaving and the west it was blue
Eb
The children's laughter sang
Bb
And skipping just like the stones they threw
Eb
Their voices echoed across the way
F    
It's getting late


Bb      Ab           Eb
It was just another night
       F
With a sunset
      Bb        Ab         Eb
And a moonrise not so far behind
            F
To give us just enough light
    Bb        Ab             Eb
To lay down underneath the stars
         F
Listen to papa's translations
Bb       Ab                Eb
Of the stories across the sky
             F
We drew our own constellations


Bb
The west winds often last too long
Eb
The wind may calm down nothing ever feels the same
Bb
Sheltered under the Kamani tree
Eb
Waiting for the passing rain
Bb
Clouds keep moving to uncover the scene
Eb
Stars above us chasing the day away
Bb
To find the stories that we sometimes need
Eb
Listen close enough
F    
All else fades, fades away


Bb      Ab           Eb
It was just another night
       F
With a sunset
      Bb        Ab         Eb
And a moonrise not so far behind
            F
To give us just enough light
    Bb        Ab             Eb
To lay down underneath the stars
         F
Listen to papa's translations
Bb       Ab                Eb
Of the stories across the sky
             F
We drew our own constellations

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
