Submitted by: Christopher R.

Intro: (E) (A) (B) (C#m) x 3

(G#m) She sits and (A) stares out the (B) window at the (C#m) water
(G#m) Every (A) night down at (B) Longy's Cafe
(G#m) All a(A)lone she sips her (B) pina col(C#m)ada
(B) Talkin' (A) to herself, dreamin' (B) time away

The story is that a dark haired stranger
Stole her heart many years ago
He promised her, he'd come back and take her
Around the world, bring her hills of gold

  (E)Do(B)wn on (F#m) Longboat (A) Key
  (E) Where the island (B) sand meets the (F#m) Gulf Stream br(A)eeze
  (E)Do(B)wn on (F#m) Longboat (A) Key
  She sp(F#m)ends her life (A) in a (B) dream on Longboat Key
  (E)Do(B)wn on (F#m) Longboat (A) Key
  (E)Do(B)wn on (F#m) Longboat (A) Key

Each afternoon as the snug boats come in
She runs to meet them down at the pier
She sees the fishermen, the nets and the sunset
But she don't see him, her eyes fill with tears

She stands there lookin' at the crystal blue water
And in the coral she imagines pearls
She makes believe, he brought them all the way from China
Then the water swirls, the blue-green water swirls

Repeat Chorus

   (C#m)Young sailors make a play to (G#m) take her home
   She says, (F#m) "No, I'm already ta(E)ken"
   (C#m) Oh, they just laugh when she (G#m) mentions his name
   (F#m)She just (E) keeps on wa(A)iting, waiting, waiting, waiting

Repeat Chorus and Fade Out
