Havana Moon
Chuck Berry Lyrics


Havana moon, Havana moon
Me all alone with jug of rum
Me stand and wait for boat to come
It's long the night, it's quiet the dock
The boat she late since twelve o'clock
Me watch the tide easin' in
Is low the moon, but high the wind

Havana moon, Havana moon
Me all alone, me open the rum
It's long the wait for boat to come
American girl come back to me
We'll sail away across the sea
We'll dock in New York, the buildings high
We'll find a home up in the sky

Havana moon, Havana moon
Me still alone, me sip on the rum
Me wonder when the boat she come
To bring me love, ow! Sweet little thing
She rock and roll, she dance and sing
She hold me tight, she touch me lips
Me eyes they close, me heart she flip

Havana moon, Havana moon
But still alone, me drinkin' the rum
Begin to think the boat no come
American girl, she tell a lie
She say till then, she mean goodbye

Havana moon, Havana moon
Me lay down alone, was good the rum
Me fall asleep, the boat she come
The girl she look till come the dawn
She weep and cry, "Return for home"
The whistle blow, me open me eyes
Was bright the sun, was blue the sky
Me grab me shoes, me jump and run
Me see the boat head for horizon
Havana moon, is gone the rum
The boat she sail, me love she gone
Havana moon, Havana moon, Havana

Havana moon, Havana moon
Me all alone with jug of rum
Me stand and wait for boat to come
Is long de night, is quiet de dark
De boat she late, it's twelve o'clock
Me watch de tide easing in
Is low de moon but high de wind
Havana moon, Havana moon

Me all alone, me open de rum
Is long de wait for boat to come
American girl come back to me
We'll sail away across de sea
We'll dock in New York
De building's high
We find a home in de sky
Havana moon, Havana moon

Me still alone, me sip de rum
Me wonder when de boat she come
To bring me love, oh sweet little thing
She rock 'n' roll, she dance and sing
She hold me tight, she touch me lips
Me eyes they close, me heart she flip
Havana moon, Havana moon

But still alone me drinking de rum
Begin to think de boat no come
American girl she tell a lie
She say "Till then," she mean "Goodbye"
Havana moon, Havana moon

Me lay down alone, was good de rum
Me fall asleep, de boat she come
De girl she look till come de dawn
She weep and cry, return for home
De whistle blow, me open me eyes
Was bright de sun, was blue de sky
Me grab me shoes, me jump and run
Me see de boat head for horizon
Havana moon, is gone de rum

De boat she sail, my love she gone
Havana moon, Havana moon
Havana moon, Havana moon

The lusty howl he gives right after "To bring me love" has to be one of the best screams in RNR. A young dude on the prowl...

In my world, Chuck Berry is The King of Rock'nRoll.

I agree Chuck Berry is the King of Rock n Roll. His music was the driving force in the 1950s and throughout his productive years..

Pamela Romanelli

He is. Stop.

Justin Zarling

not only revolutionary with the electric guitar, but also a topnotch song writer.

Would've been great to see Jimi do a cover, sounds right up his alley

EAS, From The West

Jimi’s music is mostly untouchable too but so is this song. It would be hard to do a cover that outdoes the original for this song.
