D            G           A           D
Take the long winding road rising up from the sea
     D               Bm          E7         A 
To a place where the roots of my family run deep
       D            G            A     A#dim  Bm    Bm/A
On the side of this mountain  my grandfathers sleep 
G         A            D    C     D    C
  In this place I call home 

        D              G           A          D
In this place where my mother and father were born
        D            Bm         E7              A   
I would join them in time, on a neighbor island shore
       D             G              A     A#dim     Bm  
On the road from the start, where I lived all these years 
          G          D/F#            E7            A7 
But right next to my heart there’s a place for you here 

D    G            G          A  D
Holualoa  In the heart of Hualalai 
       Bm                   E7                        A 
At the top of the road that winds from the sea to the sky  
D                     G
Laid back cool in the coffee trees  
A                Bm          Bm/A
Ridin’ high on a Kona breeze 
    Em                 D/F#             G                  A7
The roadside ginger no longer there but fragrance lingers in the air 
    Em           D/F#              G                    A7
The giant mangos still hold on  In places where they’re left alone 
Em                  D/F#             G                  A7
Cotton clouds bring gentle rains and rainbows greet the sun again
D    G     D    G    D    G          A            D   C  D  C   D  C   D  C 
Holualoa,  Holualoa, Holualoa,  this place I call home 

That long winding road brought me home from the sea 
To a love kept alive in a young child’s  memory 
Where Mamalahoa highway and Hualalai meet 
Either way, it’s a place I call home... 

There are times when it seems nothing changed from before 
People still talkin’ story by the ol’ Paul’s Place store 
The mauka road is lined with prideful  walls of hand set stone 
In this place I call home ... 
     D     C       D     C    
Holualoa      Holualoa
