Dindi - Antonio Carlos Jobim, various artist





Dindi
by Antonio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Aloysio de Oliveria
English lyrics by Ray Gilbert


CM7                  BbM7
sky, so vast is the sky
               CM7                  BbM7
where faraway clouds just wondering by
AM7            C#m7
where do they go
F#m         Bm7
oh i don't know
        E7
don't know


CM7                     BbM7
wind that speaks to the leaves
          CM7                  BbM7
telling stories that no one believes
AM7        C#m7
stories of love
          F#m Bm7 E7
belong to you and me


CM7   BbM7
oh dindi
     CM7                    Gm7
If I only had words I would say
F#m7              FM7           Bb7
All the beautiful things that I see
                 CM7
When you're with me
         BbM7
Oh my dindi

CM7   BbM7
Oh dindi
         CM7         Am7   G#m7   Gm7             
Like the song of the wind in the trees
       F#m7             FM7
That's how my heart is singing dindi
 Bb7       
Happy dindi
     CM7             Am7  F#m7  B7
When you're with me

Em                   F#m7
I love you more each day
B7  Em/G F#m7 B7 Em A7
Yes I do, Yes I do
Dm7              A/G
I'd let you go away
         Dm/F A/G      Dm7  G7
If you'd take me with you

          CM7    BbM7
Don't you know dindi
       CM7                       Gm7
I'd be running and searching for you
        F#m7       FM7
Like a river that can't find the sea
    Bb7                   CM7
That would be me without you
       BbM7
My dindi

CM7             BbM7
That would be me
          CM7    
Without you my dindi

--------------------------------------------

Céu, tão grande é o céu! 
E um bando de nuvens que passam ligeiras 
Pra onde elas vão, ah! eu não sei, não sei. 

E o vento que fala nas folhas 
Contando as histórias que são de ninguém 
Mas que minhas e de você também 

Ai, Dindi! Se soubesses o bem que eu te quero, 
Como não seria, Dindi? 
Tudo, Dindi, lindo Dindi. 

Ai Dindi, se um dia você for embora 
Me leva contigo, Dindi. 
Fica, Dindi! Olha, Dindi! 

E as águas desse rio 
Onde vão, eu não sei. 
E a minha vida inteira, esperei, esperei. 

Por você, Dindi, que é a coisa mais linda que existe! 
Você não é existe, Dindi. 
Deixa, Dindi, que eu te adore, Dindi. 

Antonio Carlos Jobim wrote this piece especially for Brazilian singer Sylvinha Telles whose nickname was Dindi. In the December of 1966, just a short while after Telles had recorded this piece with guitarist Rosinha de Valença, she was killed in a road accident in Rio de Janeiro. (Source: Sarah, Youtube)
