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 eternity

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 I never thought that we could lose

There's no regret

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, fernando



Now we're old and grey fernando

And since many years I haven't seen a rifle in your hand

Can you hear the drums fernando?

Do you still recall the frightful 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 I 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 I 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...
