Minhá Sabiá

Minha Sabiá

Minha Sabiá was adapted from a 1962 samba song, Sabiá Roxa by os Tincoãs. I don’t know who brought it to Capoeira. I published the Capoeira version chords on Ultimate Guitar a while ago. It’s a beautiful song, and I wanted to make an arrangement for it. I learned GarageBand last week and that gave me the tools to make it happen! I asked my husband and granddaughter to sing the chorus – so it’s a very special family song now. I spent the weekend of 16th-17th of December 2023 working it it. Including the video below.

E              A
Quem quiser pimenta
          B7
Minha sabiá
            E
Vai na pimenteira
          B7
Minha sabiá
                A
Tem muita gente boa
          B7
Minha sabiá
          E
Lá na cachoeira
          B7
Minha sabiá
        A
Oe Dona Miló
          B7
Minha sabiá
          E
Faça como eu
          B7
Minha sabiá
             A
Amarre seu cavalo
          B7
Minha sabiá
               E
Tambem amarro o meu
           B7
Minha sabiá
         A
Ela é roxa
          B7
Minha sabiá
             E
E ela é roxa só
          B7
Minha sabiá
     A
É roxa
          B7
Minha sabiá
       E
É roxa só
          B7
Minha sabiá

    • Thank you!!!! When I play this song and Rusty is in the room, she starts sniffing the laptop, looking for the birds! It’s really funny.
