Track 11.  White Sandy Beach  3:38  (Willie Dann)
An extraordinary thing happens to nearly everyone who experiences a white sandy beach of Hawai‘i. It is a shared connection to the warm sand and sun, cooling trade winds, gentle swaying palms, and slow ocean sounds that create perfect moments in time. Mind, body and spirit become intertwined with the vast timelessness of land, sea and sky. Mellow and bittersweet, this song, made famous by Israel Kamakawiwo‘ole, lets us share a beautiful dream of being together in a place we love.

White Sandy Beach

By Willie Dann

 

I saw you in my dreams
We were walking hand in hand
On a white, sandy beach of Hawaii
We were playing in the sun
We were having so much fun
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii

The sound of the ocean
soothes my restless soul
The sound of the ocean
rocks me all night long

Those hot long summer days
Lying there in the sun
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii

The sound of the ocean
soothes my restless soul
The sound of the ocean
rocks me all night long

Last night in my dreams
I saw your face again
We were there in the sun
on a white, sandy beach of Hawaii
