ABBA - Cassandra: chords

 C                              F           C
Down in the street they're all singing and shouting
         G/B              Am      G
Staying alive though the city is dead
 G/F          C/E          G7     C
Hiding their shame behind hollow laughter
       C/E      F      D7           G
While you are crying alone in your bed
 C                   F        C
Pity Cassandra that no one believed you
          G/B            Am             G
But then again you were lost from the start
G/F         C/E        F/A      C/G
Now we must suffer and sell our secrets
 F6        G       Am   Dm7    G       C
Bargain, playing smart, aching in our hearts

Chorus:
C/G               G7
Sorry Cassandra I misunderstood
                     C
Now the last day is dawning
 C/G                   G7
Some of us wanted but none of us could
                    C
Listen to words of warning
                       E
But on the darkest of nights
        Am          E
Nobody knew how to fight
E7                         Am
And we were caught in our sleep
                  G7
Sorry Cassandra I didn't believe
                    C
You really had the power
                   G7
I only saw it as dreams you would weave
                 C
Until the final hour

So in the morning your ship will be sailing
Now that your father and sister are gone
There is no reason for you to linger
You're grieving deeply ,still moving on
You know the future is casting a shadow
No one else sees it, but you know your fate
Packing your bags, being slow and thorough
Knowing, though you're late,
that ship is sure to wait

Chorus:
Sorry Cassandra, I misunderstood
Now the last day is dawning
Some of us wanted but none of us would
Listen to words of warning
But on the darkest of nights
Nobody knew how to fight
And we were caught in our sleep
Sorry Cassandra, I didn't believe
You really had the power
I only saw it as dreams you would weave
Until the final hour

I watched the ship leaving harbour at sunrise
Sails almost slack in the cool morning rain
She stood on deck, just a tiny figure
Rigid and restrained, blue eyes filled with pain

Chorus:
Sorry Cassandra, I misunderstood
Now the last day is dawning
Some of us wanted but none of us would
Listen to words of warning
But on the darkest of nights
Nobody knew how to fight
And we were caught in our sleep
Sorry Cassandra, I didn't believe
You really had the power
I only saw it as dreams you would weave
Until the final hour


G7                 C
I'm sorry Cassandra
G7                 C
I'm sorry Cassandra
