Fernando:Abba
#1 in '76.


[Verse 1]

A
Can you hear the drums Fernando?
                                              F#m
I remember long ago another starry night like this,
                 Bm
In the firelight Fernando,
                                                       
You were humming to yourself and softly strumming your
E
guitar.

I could hear the distant drums,
                                           A
and sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar.


[Verse 2]

A
They were closer now Fernando,
                                           F#m
Every hour every minute seemed to last eternally.
                Bm
I was so afraid Fernando.
                                                          
We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to
E
die.

And I'm not ashamed to say,
                                            A
The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry.


[Chorus]

          Esus4            E
There was something in the air that night,
                       A
The stars were bright, Fernando.
                        E
They were shining there for you and me,
    E        A
For liberty, Fernando.
         A7                          F#
Though I never thought that we could lose,
           Bm
There's no regret.
                   E
If I had to do the same again,
  E                 D       A
I would, my friend, Fernando.


[Verse 3]

A
Now we're old and grey Fernando.
                                                    F#m
And since many years I haven't seen a rifle in your hand.
                       Bm
Can you hear the drums Fernando?

Do you still recall the fateful night we 
                E
crossed the Rio Grande?

I can see it in your eyes,
                                                A
How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land.


[Chorus]

          Esus4            E
There was something in the air that night,
                       A
The stars were bright, Fernando.
                        E
They were shining there for you and me,
     E       A
For liberty, Fernando.
         A7                          F#
Though I never thought that we could lose,
           Bm
There's no regret.
                   E
If I had to do the same again,
  E                 D       A
I would, my friend, Fernando.


[Chorus]

          Esus4            E
There was something in the air that night,
                       A
The stars were bright, Fernando.
                        E
They were shining there for you and me,
    E7       A
For liberty, Fernando.
         A7                          F#
Though I never thought that we could lose,
           Bm
There's no regret.
                   E
If I had to do the same again,
  E                 D       A
I would, my friend, Fernando.


[Outro]

                   E                               A
If I had to do the same again, I would, my friend, Fernando.
                        E
Yes, if I had to do the same again, 
  E                 D       A
I would, my friend, Fernan..do.



A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.

Basically good tab but some of the subtle changes missing, I think (and there are lots of interesting things happening in these ABBA songs ...).

So here are my suggestions for the verses:

Verse 1
Am E7 Am
In the firelight Fernando,

Verse 2
Am E7 Am
I was so afraid Fernando

Verse 3
Am E7 Am
Can you hear the drums Fernando?


The G7 chord in the chorus does not sound right. A diminished F chord sounds closer to the original, I think. Moreover, there are some suspended chords that go along well with the harmonies. Try it out:


e-B-G-D-A-E
Fdim x-0-1-0-x-1

Gsus4 G D
There was something in the air that night,
G
The stars were bright, Fernando.
Gsus4 G D
They were shining there for you and me,
G
For liberty, Fernando.
Fdim E
Though I never thought that we could lose,
A7
There's no regret.
D
If I had to do the same again,
D7 C G D
I would, my friend, Fernando.
