Capo fourth fret

 

Am                 Dm                  Am
Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
F       Am   C                           G
Just like I’d never gone, I knew the song
Am                         Dm                   Am
A young girl with eyes like the desert
F   Am                   C                       G
It all seems like yesterday, not far away

 

Am                 Em
Tropical the island breeze
Dm             C
All of nature, wild and free
Em                   Dm
This is where I long to be
.              Am
La isla bonita

.                         Em
And when the samba played
Dm                 C
The sun would set so high
.         Em                                 Dm
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
.                            Am
Your Spanish lullaby

Am                 Dm                  Am
I fell in love with San Pedro
F       Am   C                           G
Warm wind carried on the sea
Am                         Dm                   Am
He called to me, te dijo te amo
F   Am                   C                       G
I prayed that the days would last They went so fast

Am                 Em
Tropical the island breeze
Dm             C
All of nature, wild and free
Em                   Dm
This is where I long to be
.              Am
La isla bonita

.                         Em
And when the samba played
Dm                 C
The sun would set so high
.         Em                                 Dm
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
.                            Am
Your Spanish lullaby

 

Dm          Bb                    C                      Dm
I want to be where the sun warms the sky
.                                  Bb
When it’s time for siesta
.                 C
You can watch them go by






Dm           Bb             C                  Dm
Beautiful faces, no cares in this world
.                                   Bb
Where a girl loves a boy
.           C                 Em
And a boy loves a girl

Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
It all seems like yesterday, not far away
