[Verse]
E                                      F#m
Brazil, where hearts were entertaining June

We stood beneath an amber moon
                                G#m
And softly whispered, "One day soon"
   F#m         G#m
We kissed and clung together

C# D C#                              D C#
Then   - tomorrow was another day
                                     D C#
The morning found me miles away
                               F#m
With still a million things to say
    Am                                E
And now, the twilight moves the sky above
                          F#m
Recalling thrills of our love
                              G#m
There's one thing I'm certain of
   F#m    G#m      F#m     E
Return, I will, to old Brazil

[Bridge]
E
Play the chromatic melody four times.

Repeat [VERSE]
Repeat [BRIDGE] ending on E.
