Lyricist: B.Andersson/S.Anderson/B.Ulvaus    Composer: B.Andersson/S.Anderson/B.Ulvaus
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

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 gray, Fernando
Since many years I hadn't seen a rifle in your hand
Can you hear the drums, Fernando
Do you remember the faithful night
We crossed the Rio Grande
I can see it in your eyes
How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land

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

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...
