Rita Connolly - Valparaiso lyrics

He was singing about Valparaiso
Singing as though in a dream
White sandy beaches
And warm gentle breeze
Palm trees that reach to
The blue southern seas

And he sang Valparaiso, Valparaiso
When will the wind blow me down there again
Valparaiso, Valparaiso
Softened the heart of a hard-hearted man

He was singing of days on the ocean
Of trade winds and rounding the Horn
Fair winds and foul winds
Of hard work and ease
Friends found and lost
On the great southern seas

And he sang Valparaiso, Valparaiso
When will the wind blow me down there again
Valparaiso, Valparaiso
Softened the heart of a hard-hearted man

We all sat in that hushed smokey tavern
As winter winds raged 'round the door
Ears keen and listening and eyes far away
Wishing that we could all go there someday

And we sang Valparaiso, Valparaiso
When will the wind blow me down there again
Valparaiso, Valparaiso
Softened the heart of a hard-hearted man
