VERSE 1

G               Am 
E kuu Belle oka po lailai,

   D7         G 
Ka lawe malie a ka mahina,

              Am 
Ko aniani mai nei eke ahe,

  D7             G 
A hea oe hoolono mai.

Ahea, oe, Ahea oe,

Oe hoolono mai,

      Am              D7 
I nei leo nahenahe Adios,

           G 
Adios, ke aloha.

VERSE 2

G            Am 
E ka hauoli iniki puu wai,

  D7           G 
E kealoha e maliu mai oe,

               Am 
Ke hoolale mai nei eke kiu,

   D7             G 
Ua anu ka wao ika ua.

Ahea, oe, Ahea oe,

Oe hoolono mai,

      Am              D7 
I nei leo nahenahe Adios,

           G 
Adios, ke aloha.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

VERSE 1

G                  Am 
Dark eyed belle of calm still midnight,

      D7               G 
Stars of heaven pale before thy eyes,

                        Am 
Softly the breeze blows down the valley,

     D7                         G 
When will you make answer to my sigh.

Ah, when love, say when love,

You'll listen to my sigh.

         Am 
I softly breath farewell;

   D7                  G 
Adios, Adios, love goodbye.

VERSE 2

G                  Am 
Love has filled my heart with mourning,

      D7                G 
Queen of beauty, listen to my plaint,

                         Am 
The seabird's cry sounds like a warning,

        D7                               G 
Chilled by rain, the wind blows cold and faint.

Ah, when love, say when love,

You'll listen to my sigh.

         Am 
I softly breath farewell;

   D7                  G 
Adios, Adios, love goodbye.
