Abuela Claudia passed away
G chordG
At noon today

Bm chordBm A chordA D chordD A chordA Bm chordBm
Bm chordBm A chordA D chordD A chordA Bm chordBm

Bm chordBm A chordA
She was found and pronounced

At the scene
D chordD A chordA Bm chordBm
She was already lying in bed
Bm chordBm A chordA
The paramedics said that her heart gave out

I mean
D chordD A chordA Bm chordBm
That's basically what they said
Bm chordBm A chordA
They said a combination of the stress and the heat
D chordD A chordA Bm chordBm A chordA G chordG
Why she never took her medicine I’ll never understand
A chordA
I’d like to think she went out in peace
Bm chordBm A chordA
With pieces of bread crumbs in her hand


Bm chordBm A chordA
Abuela Claudia had simple pleasures
D chordD A chordA Bm chordBm
She sang the praises of things we ignore
Bm chordBm A chordA
Glass Coke bottles bread crumbs a sky full of stars
D chordD A chordA Bm chordBm Bm chordBm
She cherished these things she’d say “Alabanza ”
A chordA D chordD
Alabanza means to raise this thing to God’s face
A chordA Bm chordBm A chordA G chordG
And to sing quite literally “Praise to this ”
A chordA
When she was here the path was clear
Bm chordBm A chordA
And she was just here
Bm chordBm
she was just here…

[Chorus x3]
Bm chordBm A chordA
Alaban-za
D chordD A chordA Bm chordBm
Alabanza a doña Claudia señor
Bm chordBm A chordA D chordD G chordG
Alaban-za alaban-za

Bm chordBm A chordA
Alaban-za
D chordD A chordA Bm chordBm
Alabanza a doña Claudia señor
Bm chordBm A chordA D chordD G chordG
Alaban-za alaban-za
