The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music


Corrina [core]

I love Corrina, tell the world I do, I love Cor- 4 rina, tell the world I 1 do
Just a little more 5 lovin', let your heart be 1 true

Corrina, Corrina, where'd you stay last night,... (×2)
Come in this morning, sun was shinin' bright

Corrina, Corrina, where you been so long,... (×2)
Ain't had no lovin', since you been gone

Corrina, Corrina, far across the sea,... (×2)
Don't write me no letters, don't care about me

If you don't love me, why don't you tell me so,... (×2)
A man ain't nothin', without no place to go

Got a bird to whistle, got a bird to sing,... (×2)
If I ain't got Corina, life don't mean a thing

It’s on Strum Machine!
