Abuelita  Caroline Herring

CAPO: 5th Fret
INTRO: C Cadd9 C Cadd9
[C]I should have [Em]known [F]why I [C]loved
Driving [Cadd9]through the [Em]cactus fields
Or wearing [F]white leather [G]gloves
Ad[E]mi[E7]ring the [Am]virgin
As she [F]stands upon the [G]moon
[C]Waltzing be[Cadd9]hind a [Em]second line
Or harmo[F]nizing the gosp[G]el tunes
CHORUS:
[C]Abue[Em]lita, [F]underneath the [C]trees
Of Cos[Cadd9]ta [Em]Rica and her [F]dark shored [C]seas
They won't tell me a[Em7]bout you
They don't [F]want me to [G]see
[C]Abue[Em]lita, you're [F]just [G]like [C]me
I do [Em]not [F]have your [C]mind
N[Cadd9]or your [Em]body
Nor your [F]circumstance in [G]time
But [E]I feel [E7]something [Am]rising
Up [F]through me like a [G]song
It's [C]fra[Cadd9]gile and [Em]lovely
It's [F]powerful and [G]strong
CHORUS:
[C]Abue[Em]lita, [F]underneath the [C]trees
Of Cos[Cadd9]ta [Em]Rica and her [F]dark shored [C]seas
They won't tell me a[Em7]bout you
They don't [F]want me to [G]see
[C]Abue[Em]lita, you're [F]just [G]like [C]me
BRIDGE:
[G]Oh, grandmother did you [F]have to [C]say
[G]Sometimes life, well, it just [F]turns out that [C]way
[Em]Waiting for a [Am]boy
[Em]Waiting for a [Am]train
[D]Waiting on something to make you[F] feel a[G]gain
INTERLUDE: C Em F C Em F C
All of the [Em]girls [F]lined up the [C]stairs
Dressed like [Cadd9]queens and [Em]princesses
With [F]jewels in their [G]hair
[E]Wrapped [E7]up in the [Am]old furs
You [F]gave to us that [G]night
[C]We were the [Cadd9]midnight [Em]fireworks
We [F]blazed in a New Ye[G]ar sky
CHORUS:
[C]Abue[Em]lita, [F]underneath the [C]trees
Of Cos[Cadd9]ta [Em]Rica and her [F]dark shored [C]seas
They won't tell me a[Em7]bout you
They don't [F]want me to [G]see
[C]Abue[Em]lita, you're [F]just [G]like [Am]me__[F]_
I'm [G]just [E7]like [C]me [Em] [F] [C]
