E7    Am  Am7  Am   C     C/B Am    Fdim  Am
Gra - na - da, I'm fall - ing under your spell

E7  Am            E7            C           Am             E
And if you could speak, what a fascinating tale you would tell

E                       Dm7  Dm    Dm7   E
Of an age the world has long for - got - ten,

E                       F                    Fdim        E
Of an age that weaves a silent magic in Gra - na - da today.

C          Am             CM7         C   C9  CM7   F    G
The dawn in the sky greets the day with a sigh for Gra - na - da

     G        D7/9         G           Am7  G/B Fdim  Am7  C
For she can remember the splendor that once was Gra - na - da

    C             Am         CM7          C   C9 C  Em
It still can be found in the hills all around as I wand'r along

    B7   Cdim    B7       Cdim Em
Entranced by the beauty before me

    B7         Cdim         B7           Em    B+  Em   G
Entranced by a land full of sunshine and flow -ers and song

C          Am           CM7           C   C9 CM7   F    G
And when day is done and the sun starts to set in Gra - na - da

  G        D7/9         G             Am7  G/B Fdim  Am7  C
I envy the blush of the snow-clad Si - er - ra  Ne - va - da

     C            C7          F            Fm           C
For soon it will welcome the stars while a thousand guitars

        F              C
Play a soft ha - bań - er - a

      F            Dm   Am7 Dm        C          
Then moonlit Gra - na - da  will live again 

Cdim  F   Dm7 G    G6     G   G   D7/9   G7   G   C
The glory of yes - ter - day, ro - man - tic and gay.
