Intro:   B    E

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


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


MEDLEY: E   A   E   B   E   A   E   Gb   B   E


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

    The “E” chord in the line “E ke onaona noho i ka lipo” is not really a chord.It’s just mistakenly highlighted.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

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.
