A A
If just for a day our king and queen
F F
Would visit all these islands and saw everything
G G A A
How would they feel about the changes of our land


A A
Could you just imagine if they were around
F F
And saw highways on their sacred grounds
G G A A
How would they feel about this modern city life

A A
Tears would come from each others eyes
F F
As they would stop to realize
G G A A
That our people are in great great danger now
A A F F G G A A
How, would they feel, could their smiles be content, then cry


Chorus:
A A
Cry for the gods, cry for the people
F F
Cry for the land that was taken away
G G A A
And then yet you'll find, Hawai'i


A A
Could you just imagine they came back
F F
And saw traffic lights and railroad tracks
G G A A
How would they feel about this modern city life

A A
Tears would come from each others eyes
F F
As they would stop to realize
G G A A
That our land is in great great danger now

A A
All the fighting that the king had done
F F
To conquer all these islands now these condominiums
G G A A
How would he feel if he saw Hawai'i nei
A A F F G G A A
How, would he feel, would his smile be content, then cry


Chorus

A A F F G G A A
Ua mau, ke ea o ka aina, i ka pono, o Hawai'i
A A F F G G A A
Ua mau, ke ea o ka aina, i ka pono, o Hawai'i

good work, should just mention that you have to play each string individually instead of like a regular chord
