Intro: Am G

Como puede ser verdad

Am             G            Am
Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
F               C            G
Just like I'd never gone, I knew the song
Am                 G              Am
A young girl with eyes like the desert
F                   C             G
It all seems like yesterday, not far away

Am              Em
Tropical the island breeze
Dm              C
All of nature wild and free
G                Dm
This is where I long to be
Em        Am
La isla bonita
Am             Em
And when the samba played
Dm             C
The sun would set so high
G                         Dm
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
        Em      Am
Your Spanish lullaby

I fell in love with San Pedro
Warm wind carried on the sea, he called to me
Te dijo te amo
I prayed that the days would last
They went so fast


Dm        Am            C            G
I want to be where the sun warms the sky
           Dm         Am            C            G
When it's time for siesta you can watch them go by
Dm          Am        C            G
Beautiful faces, no cares in this world
         Dm           Am         C    E      Am
Where a girl loves a boy, and a boy loves a girl

pretty good, but the part starting with "I want to be where"... seems like the wrong chord progression to me.

Great Tab! Just a couple small corrections. This is just in my opinion, and the song sounds fine if you play it without these corrections...

First, I play it with the Capo on the 2nd fret. I dunno... I just like it on the 2nd fret.

Second, I play a couple of the chords differently:

[Am]Last night I [G]dreamt of San [Am]Pedro
[F]Just [Am]like I'd [C]never gone, I [G]knew the song
etc, etc...


[Dm]I want to [Am]be where the [C]sun warms the [G]sky
When it's [Dm]time for si[Am]esta you can [C]watch them go [Em]by
[Dm]Beautiful [Am]faces, no [C]cares in this [G]world
Where a [Dm]girl loves a [Am]boy, and a [C]boy {E]loves a [Am]girl

I want to post or [tab]
