                        "The Girl From Ipanema"
                         ("Garota de Ipanema")

                      (music: Antonio Carlos Jobim
                 Portuguese lyrics: Vinicius de Moraes
                     English lyrics: Norman Gimbel)

      [chords and arrangement according to Getz/Gilberto version]


	(wordless vocal over Db6/9 on nylon-string guitar)

Verse 1 (w/nylon-string guitar only):

	Db6/9 [x4334x]
	Olha que coisa mas linda mas cheia
	   Eb9 [x6566x]
	De graca e ela menina que vem
	      Ebm9* [x6466x]  Ab7+5 [4x455x]            Db6/9  [1: D9]
	E que passa        num doce balanco a caminho do mar
	          * Ebm9/Ab after bass enters

Verse 2 (bass and percussion enter):

	Moca do corpo dourado do sol de Ipanema
	O seu balancado e mais que um poema
	E a coisa mais linda que eu ja vi passar

Chorus 1:

	Dmaj7                   G13 [3x345x]
	Ah! Por que estou tao sozinho?
	Dm9                    Bb13
	Ah! Por que tudo e tao triste?
	Ebm9              Cb13
	Ah! A beleza que existe
	    Fm7               Bb7-5 [6x675x]
	A beleza que nao e so minha
	    Ebm7           Ab7-5 [4x453x]
	Que tambem passa sozinha

Verse 3:

	Ah! se ela soubesse que quando ela passa
	O mundo sorrindo se enche de graca
	E fica mais lindo por causa do amor

Verse 4:

	Tall and tan and young and lovely
	The girl from Ipanema goes walking
	And when she passes, each one she passes goes "ahh"

Verse 5:

	When she walks she's like a samba
	That swings so cool and sways so gentle
	That when she passes, each one she passes goes "ahh"

Chorus 2:

	Oh, but he [1: watches  2: sees her] so sadly
	How can he tell her he loves her?
	Yes, he would give his heart gladly
	But each day when she walks to the sea
	She looks straight ahead not at he

Verse 6:

	Tall and tan and young and lovely
	The girl from Ipanema goes walking
	And when she passes he smiles, but she doesn't see

[sax solo over two verses, chorus, verse]

[piano solo over two verses]

[repeat chorus 2]

[repeat verse 6]


	D9                 Db6/9
	   She just doesn't see
	D9                Db6/9
	   No, she doesn't see
	D9                Db6/9
	   But she doesn't see
	D9            Db6/9
	   She doesn't see
	D9                Db6/9  [fade]
	   No, she doesn't see

Does anybody know the chord formation for the Cb13?

@abuckner28 - It should be the same as Bb13, with the bar on 7 instead of 6.
