Subject: 99 Luftballons by Nena

Hi folks, what's going on?
You really smashed me with requests for this song.
(Most of them came from the states. Un-be-lie-vable!)
So it seems to be of common interest?
But be warned: the chordprogression ist very simple and
               played again and again and again and again...
         (Very soon, you will be bored, I think.)
Here we go:

 E                 F#m                    A               B7
 |          |      |          |           |       |       |          |
Hast du   et-was  Zeit fuer mich,  dann  singe  ich ein  Lied fuer dich von
  E                 F#m                   A               B7
  |          |      |          |          |       |       |          |
neun-und-neunzig  Luft - bal-lons  auf   ihrem  Weg zum  Ho - ri-  zont.
  E                    F#m                A               B7
  |          |          |       |         |       |       |           |
Denkst Du viel-leicht grad an mich, dann singe  ich ein Lied  fuer dich von
  E                F#m                    A               B7
  |          |     |          |           /        /      |       |     |  |
 neun-und-neunzig  Luft - bal-lons  und   dass so-was von so-was

 {For the solo:     B7        E
                    |||| |||| |||| ||||   (2 x 8 Bars)  }
 {And now it's again the E-F#m-A-B7-Progression as shown above.}

 E                F#m             A               B7
 Neunundneunzig   Luftballons auf ihrem Weg zum   Horizont hielt
man fuer Ufos    aus dem All,    darum schickte  ein General 'ne
Fliegerstaffel   hinterher   A - larm zu geben,  wenn's so waer da-
bei war'n da am  Horizont nur    neunundneuzig   Luftballons
  |       |       |         wegen neunundneunzig Luftballons
 E                 F#m                A               B7
Neunundneunzig    Duesenjaeger       jeder war ein   grosser
Krieger  hielten sich fuer Captain Kirk das   gab ein grosses
Feuerwerk. Die  Nachbarn haben    nichts gerafft und fuehlten sich
gleich angemacht, dabei
 schoss man  am    Horizont auf       neunundneunzig Luftballons.

 {Now there comes a part of the solo again. I couln't interpret
the repetion statement and I don't have a recording of the song, so
it  may be:  8 x E, or 4 x E, or 8 x B7 followed by 8 x E playing
along the solo.}

 E                 F#m                 A                B7
 Neunundneunzig    Kriegsminister,     Streichholz und
Benzinkanister  hielten sich fuer schlaue Leute,      witterten
schon  fette Beute,  riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht,      man, wer
haette  das gedacht,  dass es einmal    so weit kommt wegen
neunundneunzig   Lufballons  |        |        |             wegen
neunundneunzig   Luftballons   Neunundneunzig    Jahre Krieg
  liessen keinen   Platz fuer Sieger  Kriegsminister    gibt's
nicht mehr   und auch keinen  Duesenflieger  Heute zieh' ich
meine Runden,       sah' die Welt in Truemmer liegen  E
     F#m                 A                B6/9  hab 'nen Luft -
ballon gefunden,    denk an dich und lass ihn fliegen.  E
                                            ****  |||| ||||
                                {NOTE: A new chord!!!}
