ABBA - Happy New Year: chords

A           Bm7
No more champagne
         A/C#          C#m
And the fireworks are through.
        D           A/C#
Here we are, me and you,
        Bm7              Esus4
Feeling lost and feeling blue.
         A          Dm6/B
It’s the end of the party,
        A/C#             C#m
And the morning seems so grey,
      D          A/C#
So unlike yesterday,
          Bm7            Esus4 E
Now’s the time for us to say:

Chorus:
               A
     Happy New Year!
               C#7/F
     Happy New Year!
                F#m
     May we all have
        D              F#7
     A vision now and then
     Of a world
                           F#7/A# Bm  E
     Where every neighbour is a friend.
               A
     Happy New Year!
               C#7/F
     Happy New Year!
                F#m
     May we all have
          D                  F#7
     Our hopes, our will to try:
     If we don’t
                          F#7/A#    Bm  E
     We might as well lay down and die,
             Bm E
     You and I.

Sometimes I see
How the brave new world arrives,
And I see how it thrives
In the ashes of our lives.
Oh yes, man is a fool,
And he thinks he’ll be okay,
Dragging on, feet of clay,
        D              A
Never knowing he’s astray,
         Bm7      Esus4 E
Keeps on going anyway:

Chorus:
     Happy New Year!
     Happy New Year!
     May we all have
     A vision now and then
     Of a world
     Where every neighbour is a friend.
     Happy New Year!
     Happy New Year!
     May we all have
     Our hopes, our will to try:
     If we don’t
     We might as well lay down and die,
     Bm E    A
     You and I.

Seems to me now
That the dreams we had before
Are all dead, nothing more
Than confetti on the floor.
It’s the end of a decade,
In another ten years time
Who can say what we’ll find,
           D                A
What lies waiting down the line
       Bm7           Esus4 E
In the end of eighty-nine:

Chorus:
     Happy New Year!
     Happy New Year!
     May we all have
     A vision now and then
     Of a world
     Where every neighbour is a friend.
     Happy New Year!
     Happy New Year!
     May we all have
     Our hopes, our will to try:
     If we don’t
     We might as well lay down and die,
     Bm E    A
     You and I.
