This copyright covers only the arrangement and not the tune.
During WWII (1944 - 1945) I was at a military base on the Island of Oahu for over nine months.
Most of the music heard on the radio was Hawaiian. Steel guitar and ukes.
This is the tune that many visitors were greeted with upon arrival or departure to the islands.
A real melting pot of ethnic and racial groups that got along very well together.
The first page of tab is the verse. The second page of tab is the Chorus.
This tune has two pick up notes in the first measure making it an incomplete measure of only two beats. The last measure of page one of tab, is minus the two beats.
17 measures with only 2 beats of music in the first measure, beats 3 & 4. In the last measure of tab for page two, the last two beats are not there. Two beats in measure one and two beats in measure 17 make full 4 beats and a complete number of measures of 4 beats each.
The second page of tab starts with the first two beats missing. The last measure of tab, on page 2 of tab, has no music on beats 3 & 4 on the 2nd page of tab. That makes an even number of beats and complete measures.
The tune was put together so that the viewer/listener would have a complete sound.
