Twenty-six Miles

	  		#2 in 1958. 

Chorus: 
C          Am7    Dm7       G 
Twenty-six miles across the sea, 
C         Am7       Dm7         G 
Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me. 
C     Am7           Dm7    G    C 
Santa Catalina, the island of romance,  
  Am7      Dm7      G 
romance, romance, romance. 

#1. 
C          Am7      Dm7  G 
Water all around it everywhere, 
C        Am7           Dm7   G 
Tropical trees and the salty air. 
        C      Am7            Dm7     G        C    Dm7 C C7 
But for me the thing that's a-waitin' there..romance. 

#2. 
   Dm7      G        C          Am     C 
It seems so distant, twenty-six miles away. 
F              G         C 
Restin' in the water, serene. 
    Dm7      G       C        Am7 
I'd work for anyone, even the Navy, 
          D              Dm7    G 
Who would float me to my island dream. 

#3. 
C           Am7       Dm7       G 
Twenty- six miles, so near, yet far. 
C                       Am7             Dm7   G 
I'd swim with just some water-wings and my guitar. 
        C         Am7            Dm7         G 
I could leave the wings but I'll need the guitar  
      C        Am7      Dm7      G      
for romance, romance, romance, romance. 

Chorus: 

#4. 
Dm7        G      C          Am 
A tropical heaven out in the ocean. 
F            G         C 
Covered with trees and girls. 
Dm7          G          C        Am7 
If I have to swim, I'll do it forever, 
         D               Dm7    G 
Till I'm gazin' on those island pearls. 

#5. 
C         Am7         Dm7       G 
Forty kilometers in a leaky old boat. 
C       Am7           Dm7   G 
Any old thing that'll stay afloat. 
     C  Am7          Dm7    G 
When we arrive we'll all promote  
  C        Am7      Dm7      G 
romance, romance, romance, romance. 

Chorus: 
ADD: 
C          Am7    Dm7       G      
Twenty-six miles across the sea. 
C         Am7       F           G 
Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me.(x2)(Fade)
