Happy New Year:Abba.
Album - Super Trouper 1980.


INTRO:  A E D E (x2)     

#1.
A       Bm                 A             C#m7
No more champagne, and the fireworks are through,
        D           A           Bm               E
here we are, me and you feeling lost and feeling blue.
         A          Dm             A                Cm#7
It's the end of the party, and the morning seems so gray..
     D          A              Bm            E    E7
so unlike yesterday, now's the time for us to say..

CHORUS:
E7        A               C#m7
Happy New Year, Happy New Year,
           F#m    D              F#
may we all have a vision now and then,
     F#7               F#             Bm    E
of a world where every neighbour is a friend.
          A               C#7
Happy New Year, Happy New Year,
           F#m      D                  F#
may we all have our hopes, our will to try,
      F#7                F#                Bm
if we don't, we might as well lay down and die,  
E       Bm  E
you and I.

#2.
A           Bm          A               C#m7
Sometimes I see how the brave new world arrives,
      D          A              Bm           E
and I see how it thrives in the ashes of our lives.
    A             Dm          A               C#
Oh, yes, man is a fool and he thinks he'll be OK,
         D                A                 Bm            A
dragging on (ooo) feet of clay (ooo), never knowing he's astray,
         Bm    D      E      E7
keeps on going.....anyway.

CHORUS:
E7        A               C#m7
Happy New Year, Happy New Year,
           F#m    D              F#
may we all have a vision now and then,
     F#7               F#             Bm    E
of a world where every neighbour is a friend.
          A               C#7
Happy New Year, Happy New Year,
           F#m      D                  F#
may we all have our hopes, our will to try,
      F#7                F#                Bm  E
if we don't, we might as well lay down and die,  
Bm  E     A
you...and I.

(INTERLUDE:) A E D E (x2)

 
#3.
A           Bm           A               C#m7
Seems to me now that the dreams we had before
        D             A         Bm              E
are all dead, nothing more than confetti on the floor.
         A        Bm         A                 C#m7
It's the end of a decade, in another ten years time
        D                    A
who can say (ooo) what we'll find (ooo),
          Bm               A
what lies waiting down the line,
       Bm     D        E    E7
in the end of...eighty-nine?

CHORUS:
E7        A               C#m7
Happy New Year, Happy New Year,
           F#m    D              F#
may we all have a vision now and then,
     F#7               F#             Bm    E
of a world where every neighbour is a friend.
          A               C#m7
Happy New Year, Happy New Year,
           F#m      D                  F#
may we all have our hopes, our will to try,
      F#7                F#                Bm
if we don't, we might as well lay down and die,  
Bm  E     A
you...and I.

The intro should keep an A bass note ie. A E/A D/A E/A
The C#7s in the verse should be C#m7.

Apart from that, very helpful!

jemann..thanks for the heads up on the C#7's. It may or may not have just
been a typo but I DO make mistakes. I think the INTRO chords stand by
themselves and I didn't change them. Anybody else want to weigh in on that point? Thanks again for your help and comments. KK.
