About this tab version
From Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical "In The Heights". The timing is a little tricky but if you listen through to the song you'll get the beat down. For the Bm use the barre chord, and hammer on with your middle finger onto the third fret on the second fret. The song strums down on the chord but you can also pluck them if you'd like. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ

Bm A D A Bm
Bm A D A Bm

[Verse 1]
        Bm                   A
She was found and pronounced

At the scene
        D       A        Bm
She was already lying in bed
               Bm                       A
The paramedics said that her heart gave out

I mean
D      A                   Bm
That's basically what they said
                 Bm                      A
They said a combination of the stress and the heat
                       D         A              Bm     A  G     
Why she never took her medicine, I’ll never understand
I’d like to think she went out in peace
        Bm                   A
With pieces of bread crumbs in her hand

[Verse 2]
Bm             A    
Abuela Claudia had simple pleasures
             D          A          Bm
She sang the praises of things we ignore
           Bm                   A
Glass Coke bottles, bread crumbs, a sky full of stars
             D         A    Bm               Bm      
She cherished these things, she’d say: “Alabanza.”
           A                                D
Alabanza means to raise this thing to God’s face
       A           Bm              A         G
And to sing, quite literally: “Praise to this.”
When she was here, the path was clear
             Bm       A
And she was just here
she was just here…

[Chorus] x6
   Bm  A
   D       A    Bm
Alabanza a doña Claudia, señor
   Bm  A      D   G
Alaban-za, alaban-za
