Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Standard

Chega de Saudade Album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQC4Ye7hr9Y
Christophe Rousseau: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7B_TDUeZac

Just my own transcription of Christophe's very accurate interpretation. Keep in
mind that the mutes aren't really that important for the real version. I just
included them to stay accurate to Christophe's version.

Last bar of the outro is my own creation.

Comment or message any ideas or corrections. Please rate my tab. If you've got
problems with the tab, I'd encourage you to contact me with those problems so I
can fix the tab or provide advice for playing. Don't just give me a poor rating
and not give me any feedback. The idea is for us all to work together to create
a perfect finished product. This tab just represents the best I can do. It's 
definitely up for peer review.



Key:

 s  - slap mute
 x  - mute
 *  - beat progression.

Vai minha tristeza e diz a ela que sem ela
Não pode ser, diz-lhe numa prece
Que ela regresse, porque eu não posso
Mais sofrer.


Chega de saudade a realidade
É que sem ela não há paz, não há beleza
É só tristeza e a melancolia
Que não sai de mim, não sai de mim, não sai


Mas se ela voltar, se ela voltar,
Que coisa linda, que coisa louca
Pois há menos peixinhos a nadar no mar
Do que os beijinhos que eu darei
Na sua boca


, dentro dos meus braços
Os abraços hão de ser, milhões de abraços
Apertado assim, colado assim, calado assim
Abraços e beijinhos e carinhos sem ter fim
Que é pra acabar com este negócio de você
Viver sem mim. Não quero mais este negócio 


 Que é pra acabar com este negócio de você
Viver sem mim. Não quero mais este negócio

 Que é pra acabar com este negócio de você
Viver sem mim. Não quero mais este negócio



Go, my sadness
And tell her that without her it can't be
Tell her in an entreaty that she should return
(Beg her to return)
Because I can't suffer anymore
Enough missing her, the reality
Is that without her there's no peace, no beauty
Only sadness and melancholy
That it doesn't leave me, it doesn't leave me, it doesn't
 
But if she returns, if she returns
What a lovely thing, what a crazy thing
Because there are less fish swimming in the sea
Then the kisses that I will give to her mouth
Within my arms the hugs
Have to be millions of hugs held tight that way
United that way, silent that way
Hugs and kisses and caresses without end
What is going to finish with this business
Of you living far from me
I don't want anymore this business
Of you living this way
Let's leave this business
Of you living without me
