Cane Fire Ukulele Chords by The Peter Moon Band

canefireA classic song from a classic Hawaiian album about growing pakalolo (marijuana) in the sugar cane fields. The Peter Moon version is in this same key, but the Koa’uka version that I based the solo off of is down a half-step in the key of G#m. Both are great. Check them out and use whatever is inspiring.

1st Verse:
Am                            G
Growers, you who till for the buyer
     Am                                    G
I've come here to warn you 'bout tonight's Cane Fire
F                   G                  Am
When I woke up this morning, I saw the cane was pushed to the ground
F           G            Am
Helicopters soaring, the guard was snooping around.

(Save the children)
F          G
Gotta move before they find                
F                  G   (Save the children)
You grab yours and I'll grab mine                   
F                 G//   (Save the children)
Gotta pull 'em in time
Before the Cane Fire

Am                       G
Prices, everyday getting higher
  Am                             G
I won't let my money burn in the Cane Fire
F                G               Am
Got three hungry babies, and the rent to be paid
F             G               Am
Ripe for the harvest, this is no time for a raid
