Song: The girl from Ipanema

English lyrics: Norman Gimbel
Tabbed by DJ
1st Aug 2016

This Bossa Nova is a challenge for the average player,
but I've tried to find the simplest voicings I could whilst
still retaining the feel of the song.

Video at this link:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1uEy-n4IsU

Tuning: 
Slightly flat of concert pitch. Using a chromatic tuner,
detune all strings down approx.(-10)

CAPO: 1st fret (Sounds in the key of B)

Chords names and fret positions are relative to the capo:

[Intro]
Cmaj7
Dum, dum, dum! Brrring, boom -boom...brrring, boom -boom!


[Verse 1]
Cmaj7
Tall and tanned, and young and lovely,
     D7
The girl from Ipanema goes walking,
     Dm7                 Db7-5               Cmaj7
And when she passes, each one she passes goes  ...'Ahhh!'


[Verse 2]
Cmaj7    
When she walks she's like a samba,
      D7
That swings so cool, and sways so gently,
     Dm7                  Db7-5               Cmaj7
That when she passes, each one she passes goes  ...'Ahhh!'


[Verse 3]
Dbmaj7                   Gb9
  Oh, but he watches so sadly,
Db7sus2                  A13
 How can he tell her he loves her?
D7sus2                         Bb7
 Yes, he would give his heart gladly,
         Em7                        A7-9
But each day, when she walks to the sea,
     Dm7                        G7-5
She looks straight ahead, not at he!


[Verse 4]
Cmaj7
 Tall and tanned, and young and lovely,
     D7
The girl from Ipanema goes walking,
    Dm7                 Db7-5
And when she passes, he smiles,
               Cmaj7
But she doesn't see!
