INTRO
Eb Bb/D Cm  Bb  Ab Bb      Eb G7+ Cm Bb Ab Eb/G Fm7
O -le - a - na,    via Del Norte,        O Cana-da
 
 
[VERSE I]
       Bb               Dm7          EbM7
It was snowtime, it was showtime, it was no time
      F       D/F#     Gm  F/A
To be lost in downtown Toronto
       Bb                 Dm7
It was wintertime, ‘round dinnertime
    Db                                 Eb/G         Ab    Fm7
I’m beginning to see that the sunshine just doesn’t want to
 
       Bb                 Dm7
From a side street come a backbeat
 EbM7                  F            D/F#   Gm  F/A
Pulling on me like the moon pullin’ on the tide
   Bb                Dm7                Db
Ay caramba, one-note samba, la la la la bamba
            Eb/G  Ab
Lighting me up  inside
 
 
CHORUS
             F                      BbM7        C       Dm  Eb Gm7
They had the heat of the sun in the beat of the talking drum
    F                   BbM7      C        Dm     Eb Gm7
The light of a tropical moon on a night to remember
        F                       BbM7            C      Dm  Eb Gm7
Someone summoned up summer just strumming on an old guitar
    F                  BbM7 C       Dm      Eb  Gm7 Fm7
And every note was the anti-dote to December
 
 
[VERSE II]
Bb                 Dm7            EbM7
My first impression, some kind of procession
             F            D/F#  Gm   F/A
Pulling on a long line of fancy dancers
      Bb                 Dm7
And a band stuck up on a flatbed truck
          Db                        Eb/G    Ab   Fm7
They were raising a ruckus swinging for the fences
 
Bb             Dm7
Exiled Mexican textile working
EbM7                 F           D/F#      Gm    F/A
Punching two clocks, sending two paychecks home, boys
Bb                          Dm7
Hard working law ‘biding bus riding people
Db                    Eb/G        Ab
Celebration on wheels destination unknown
 
 
CHORUS
             F                      BbM7        C       Dm  Eb Gm7
They had the heat of the sun in the beat of the talking drum
    F                   BbM7      C        Dm     Eb Gm7
The light of a tropical moon on a night to remember
        F                       BbM7            C      Dm  Eb Gm7
Someone summoned up summer just strumming on an old guitar
    F                  BbM7 C       Dm      Eb
And every note was the anti-dote to December

CHORUS
G                                 CM7         D        Em  F Am7
There was a lifeline south in the song coming from her mouth
   G                     CM7         D      Em  F Am7
It swallowed me up and I followed it on downtown
       G                 CM7          D         Em F Am7
In the light of dawn the message that life goes on
        G                 CM7       D    Em  F
For the frozen man an invitation to live again
           G                      CM7          D       Em  F Am7
It was the heat of the sun in the beat of that talking drum
    G                   CM7       D        Em      F Am7
The light of a tropical moon on a night to remember
        G                       CM7             D      Em  F Am7
Someone summoned up summer just strumming on an old guitar
    G               CM7 D       Em      F  C
And every note, the antidote to December
          G                         CM7            D     Em  F Am7
They were shakin’ it loose with the juice from the mambo man
G                      CM7           D          Em  F Am7
Long lanky Yankee boy, Buckwheat and Spanky, my-my
