A friend of mine who is into jazz asked me to try and get this song for him.
I don't know the song at all, so the names of the artists might be slightly 
incorrect.  He thinks the song was in the key of C major, but I guess he will
be happy to get it in any key that he can :)

BTW, I checked on nevada and linfield etc. and I couldn't find it.

I typed this in from some book that I had, stripped off the
piano parts, etc. This should get you going. 


The Girl from Ipanema
(Garota de Ipanema)

Music: Antonio Carlos Jobim
Lyrics: Vinicius de Moraes

Verse 1

Tall and tan and young 	and lovely, The girl 
| Fmaj7			| 			|
From Ipane-		ma goes walking, and when 
| G7			| 			|
She passes each one 	she passes goes
| Gm7			| Gb7			|
| Fmaj7			| Gb7			|

Verse 2

When she walks she's lika a samba that
| Fmaj7			| 			|
Swings so cool and sways so gentle that when
| G7			| 			|
She passes, each one she passes goes
| Gm7			| Gb7			|
| Fmaj7			| Fmaj7			|


Oh,			but I watch her so
| Gbmaj7		| Gbmaj7		|
sadly						How
| Cb9			| Cb9			|
			 can I tell her I 
| F#m7			| F#m7			|
love her?					yes
| D9			| D9			|
			 I would give my heart 
| Gm7			| Gm7			|
gladly					But each
| Eb9			| Eb9			|
day when she walks to the sea			she
| Am7			| D7b9			|
looks straight ahead not at me
| Gm7			| C7b9			|


Tall and tan and young 	and lovely the Girl 
| Fmaj7			| 			|
from Ipane-		ma goes walking and when
| G7			| 			|
she passes I smile,	but she doesn't 
| Gm7			| Gb7			|
see 		     (1)    She doesn't      (2)
| Gb7		       :| Gb7			|
see 		     		No she doesn't
| Fmaj7			| Gb7			|
| Fmaj7		Gb7	| Fmaj7			||
The second time around you'll have to substitute
some words:

	lovely		handsome
	girl		boy
	she		he
	her		him
