Key Largo,
Alone on Key Largo,
How empty it seems,
With only my dreams

Strange cargo,
They come to Key Largo,
But where is the face,
My heart won't erase

The moon tide,
Rolling in from the sea,
Is lonely,
And it always will be 'til you're with me

And I know,
I'll stay in Key Largo,
Just watching the shore to find you once more

Key Largo,
Alone on Key Largo,
How empty it seems,
With only my dreams

Strange cargo,
May come to Key Largo,
But where is the face,
My heart won't erase

The moon tide,
Rolling in from the sea,
Is lonely,
And it always will be 'til you're with me

And I know,
I'll stay in Key Largo,
Just watching the shore to find you once more
In Key Largo, find you once more in Key Largo.
