Fernando
Fernando:ABBA.
#1 in 1976.

#1.
A
Can you hear the drums Fernando?
                                              F#m
I remember long ago another starry night like this..
           Bm
In the firelight Fernando..

You were humming to yourself and softly strumming your
E
guitar.

I could hear the distant drums,
                                            A
and sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar.

#2.
A
They were closer now Fernando.. 
                                                  F#m
every hour, every minute seemed to last, eternal..ly.
          Bm
I was so afraid Fernando.

We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to
E
die.

And I'm not ashamed to say,
                                            A
The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry.

CHORUS:
A                          E
There was something in the air that night,
A   E                     A
The stars were bright, Fernando.
A                           E
They were shining there for you and me,
A   E7          A
For liberty, Fernando.
A7                                   F#
Though I never thought that we could lose,
             B
There's no regret.
                   E
If I had to do the same again,
E7          D       A
I would, my friend, Fernando.
                   E
If I had to do the same again,
E7          D       A
I would, my friend, Fernando.

#3.
A
Now we're old and gray, Fernando.
                                                    F#m
And since many years I haven't seen a rifle in your hand.
                 Bm
Can you hear the drums Fernando?

Do you still recall the fateful night we
E               
crossed the Rio Grande?

I can see it in your eyes,
                                                A
How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land.

CHORUS:
A                          E
There was something in the air that night,
A   E                     A
The stars were bright, Fernando.
A                           E
They were shining there for you and me,
A   E7          A
For liberty, Fernando.
A7                                   F#
Though I never thought that we could lose,
             B
There's no regret.
                   E
If I had to do the same again,
E7          D       A
I would, my friend, Fernando.

CHORUS:
A                          E
There was something in the air that night,
A   E                     A
The stars were bright, Fernando.
A                           E
They were shining there for you and me,
A   E7          A
For liberty, Fernando.
A7                                   F#
Though I never thought that we could lose,
             B
There's no regret.
                   E
If I had to do the same again,
E7          D       A
I would, my friend, Fernando.

OUTRO:
A                  E     E7                           A
If I had to do the same again, I would, my friend, Fernando.
A                       E     E7
Yes, if I had to do the same again,
E7          D               A
I would, my friend, Fernan..do.

A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
