ABBA: "I LET THE MUSIC SPEAK"


Enorme canción, no de las más conocidas, tal vez justamente por su enormidad (hay una conspiración mundial para que las personas crean que ABBA es ante todo Chiquitita, sabrán). Para igualar el tono original se toca con trasporte en 3. Eliminé un pequeño segmento instrumental poco guitarreable cerca del final. 





Intro: |A2|

|A2| I'm hearing |A2/G| images, |F#dim| I'm seeing |E| songs
No
|A2| poet |Am| has ever |Am6-| pain-|Am| ted
|Dm| Voices call |Dm/C| out to me, |E/B| straight to my |Bb7| heart
So |Dm| strange yet |Dm/C| we're so |Ebdim| well ac-|E| quainted

|A2| I let the |A2/G| music speak, |F#dim| with no res-|E| traints
I |A2| let my |Am| feelings take |Am6-| o-|Am| ver
|Dm| Carry my |Dm/C| soul away |E/B| into the |Bb7| world
Where |Dm| beauty |Dm/C| meets the |Ebdim| darkness
|E| of the |Am (Tab. 1)| day

......|G| Where my mind is like an |C| open window
......|G| Where the |E| high and healing |E/G#| winds |Am| blow
......|G| From my shallow sleep the |C| sounds awake me
......|Bb| I let them |Bb/F| take me
......|Bb5-| (Let them wake me, let them now, let them take me)
......|Am - E4 - E|

............Let it be a |Am| joke |Am6-|
............Let it be a |Am| smile
............Let it be a |Am| farce |Am/G| if it makes me
............|F| laugh |E| for a little |Am| while

............Let it be a |Am| tear |Am6-|
............Let it be a |Am| sigh
............Coming from a |Am| heart |Am/G| speaking to a
............|F| heart |E| let it be a |Am| cry

Instr.: |Tab. 2| - |A2|

|A2Some streets are |A2/G| emptiness, |F#dim| dry leaves of |E| autumn
|A2| Rustling |Am| down an old |Am6-| al-|Am| ley
|Dm| And in the |Dm/C| dead of night |E/B| I find my-|Bb7| self
A |Dm| blind man |Dm/C| in some |Ebdim| ancient |E| valley

|A2| I let the |A2/G| music speak, |F#dim| leading me |E| gently
|A2| Urging |Am| me like a |Am6-| lo-|Am| ver
|Dm| Leading me |Dm/C| all the way |E/B| into a |Bb7| place
Where |Dm| beauty |Dm/C| will de-|Ebdim| feat the
|E| darkest |Am (Tab. 1)| day

......|G| Where I'm one with every |C| grand illusion
......|G| No dis-|E| turbance, no in-|E/G#| tru-|Am| sion
......|G| Where I let the wistful |C| sounds seduce me
......|Bb| I let them |Bb/F| use me
......|Bb5-| (All illusion, no disturbance, no intrusion)
......|Am - E4 - E|

............Let it be a |Am| joke |Am6-|
............Let it be a |Am| smile
............Let it be a |Am| farce |Am/G| if it makes me
............|F| laugh |E| for a little |Am| while

............Let it be a |Am| tear |Am6-|
............Let it be a |Am| sigh
............Coming from a |Am| heart |Am/G| speaking to a 
............|F| heart |E| let it be a |Am (Tab. 1)| cry 

......|G| Let it be the joy of |C| each new sunrise
......|G| Or the |E/G#| moment when a |E| day |Am| dies
......|G| I surrender without |C| reservation
......|C7/Bb| No explanations
......|F9/A| No questions |F/A| why
......|Dm| I take it |A/D| to me and |Dm7| let it flow |E7| through me
......Yes, |Dm| I let the |C| music speak
......|F| I let the |G| mu-|G4| sic |C| speak

  1. Cierto, Geral. Chiquitita es el peor tema. ¡Vamos ABBA! De paso, el cassette que contenía chiquitita estaba super bueno.

  2. Cada vez somos más, esto es imparable. El album que contiene Chiquitita es "Voulez-Vous", y es bueno, sí, no el mejor, pero es bueno, tiene Angel Eyes y As Good as New y Does Your Mother Know y el hit del título. El malentendido que hay con este grupo es colosal.
