ABBA - Fernando: chords

                            A
Can you hear the drums, Fernando?
                  A
I remember long ago
                            F#m
Another starry night like this.
                      Bm
In the firelight, Fernando,
                         Bm
You were humming to yourself
                              E
And softly strumming your guitar.
                           E
I could hear the distant drums
               E
And sounds of bugle calls were
              A
Coming from afar.

                         A
They were closer now Fernando.
                   A
Every hour, every minute
                       F#m
Seemed to last eternally.
                     Bm
I was so afraid, Fernando,
                           Bm
We were young and full of life
                            E
And none of us prepared to die.
                        E
And I'm not ashamed to say,
             E
The roar of guns and cannons
                 A
Almost made me cry.

Chorus:
A
  There was something
       E7
In the air that night,
                           A
The stars were bright, Fernando.
A
  They were shining
           E7
There for you and me,
                 A
For liberty, Fernando.
          A/G
Though I never thought
               F#
That we could lose,
               B7
There's no regret.
B7
  If I had to do
     E7
The same again,
                       A
I would my friend, Fernando.

A
  If I had to do
     E7
The same again,
                       D
I would my friend, Fernando.

                            A
Now we're old and grey, Fernando,
                        A
And since many years I haven't
                      F#m
Seen a rifle in your hand.
                            Bm
Can you hear the drums, Fernando?
                         Bm
Do you still recall the fateful
                           E
Night we crossed the Rio Grande?
                     E
I can see it in your eyes,
               E
How proud you were to fight for
                 A
Freedom in this land.

Chorus - x2

A
  Yes, if I had to do
     E7
The same again,
                       A
I would my friend, Fernando.
A
  If I had to do
     E7
The same again,
                       A
I would my friend, Fernando...
