The Girl From Ipanema (Garota De Ipanema)

The Girl From Ipanema: LadyDpiano



The Girl From Ipanema was recorded in 1963 by Antonio Carlos Jobim. It is one of my all-time favorite songs of the 60s. If you're not familiar with this one, here it is on YouTube.

Original words by Vinicius De Moraes
English words by Norman Gimbel
Music by Antonio Carlos Jobim

Key: F
Time: 4/4 Bossa Nova


FM7
Tall and tan and young and lovely

     G7
The girl from Ipanema goes walking,

    Gm7                   Gb7                   FM7    Gb9
And when she passes, each one she passes goes, "Ahhh."


 FM7
When she walks, she's like a samba

      G7
That swings so cool and sways so gentle,

      Gm7                  Gb7                    FM7
That when she passes, each one she passes goes, "Ahhh."


Bridge:

Gbmaj7                   Cb9
Oh, but I watch her so sadly;

F#m7                   D9
How can I tell her I love her?

 Gm7                         Eb9
Yes, I would give my heart gladly,

         Am7                      D7-9  
But each day when she walks to the sea,

     Gm7                         C7-9
She looks straight ahead, not at me.


FM7
Tall and tan and young and lovely

    G7
The girl from Ipanema goes walking,

    Gm7                 Gb7
And when she passes,  I smile,

               FM7   Gb7                FM7    Gb7
But she doesn't see,     no she doesn't see,

               FM7 Gb7 Fmaj7
No she doesn't see.
