Fernando Lyrics

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 haven't seen a rifle in your hand
Can you hear the drums Fernando?
Do you still recall 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
Yes 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

Like the great love for us as in the death of Jesus He says If I had to do the same again, I would my friend.

A truly great song which I hadn't heard for quite sometime until this morning. And I said to my daughter that it had always struck me as a sad song. The lyrics, which I didn't know, now confirm it.

This song is about 2 old men reminiscing about their involvement in the Mexican War of 1845. Strange that they should write a song about this.

BrianW...you are correct. Faithful should be changed to fateful. Someone please correct it. It would not let me do it.

Well, that's kind of awkward. I heard this song the other day on Will & Grace in the episode where Will's Mom was singing this being silly.
