Abba: Fernando

FERNANDO
/Abba/

Can you hear the drums Fernando?
I remember long ago
Another starry night like this
In the firelight Fernando
You were humming to yourself
And softly strumming your guitar
I could hear the distant drums
And sounds of bugle calls
Were coming from afar

They were closer now Fernando
Every hour, every minute
Seemed to last eternally
I was so afraid Fernando
We were young and full of life
And none of us prepared to die
And I'm not ashamed to say
The roar of guns and cannons
Almost made me cry

[Chorus:]
There was something
In the air that night
The stars were bright
Fernando
They were shining there
For you and me
For liberty
Fernando
Though we never thought
That we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend
Fernando

If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend
Fernando

Now we're old and grey Fernando
And since many years
I haven't seen a rifle in your hand
Can you hear the drums Fernando
Do you still recall
The frightful night we crossed the Rio Grande
I can see it in your eyes
How proud you were
To fight for freedom in this land

[Chorus] [2x]

Yes, if I had to do the same again
I would, my friend
Fernando
