Abuela Claudia passed away
G G
At noon today

Bm Bm A A D D A A Bm Bm
Bm Bm A A D D A A Bm Bm

Bm Bm A A
She was found and pronounced

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

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


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

[Chorus x3]
Bm Bm A A
Alaban-za
D D A A Bm Bm
Alabanza a doña Claudia, señor
Bm Bm A A D D G G
Alaban-za, alaban-za

Bm Bm A A
Alaban-za
D D A A Bm Bm
Alabanza a doña Claudia, señor
Bm Bm A A D D G G
Alaban-za, alaban-za
