Lyrics

"Chasing the Blues in Bahia"/"Tô Atrás do Blues na Bahia"
© 2000 & © 2015 Music composed by Doug Adair
English lyrics composed by Doug Adair & translated to Portuguese by Thomas Smith Neto


Verse 1 - English
I walked out this morning, the sun was burning bright
I walked out this morning, the sun was burning bright
Sky was deep, deep blue--blue water shimmered in the light
Thousands of people were passing through the street
Thousands of people were passing through the street
They were on their way to chase the blues down at the beach
I never heard so much commotion, commotion in the air
I never heard so much commotion, commotion in the air
Sounds of joy and laughter ringing everywhere

Chorus - English
Chasing the Blues, Chasing the Blues...in Bahia
Chasing the Blues, Chasing the Blues...in Bahia
You always win when you lose when you're Chasing the Blues...in Bahia

Verse 1 - Português
Botei o pé na rua, debaixo do m'or sol
Botei o pé na rua, debaixo do m'or sol
Que céu, mais azul, espelhando a cor do mar
Tava todo mundo passando pelas ruas
Tava todo mundo passando pelas ruas
Pra correr atrás do blues na Bahia.
Nunc'ouvi tanta comoção, comoção no ar
Nunc'ouvi tanta comoção, comoção no ar
Gritaria d'alegria pra nunc'acabar.

Chorus -- Português
Tô atrás do Blues, Tô atrás do Blues...na Bahia
Tô atrás do Blues, Tô atrás do Blues...na Bahia
Você sempre ganha quando você perde Tô atrás do Blues na...Bahia

Verse 2 - English
In sunny Salvador, Porto da Barra's crowded streets
In sunny Salvador, Porto da Barrra's crowded streets
On the beaches north and south, they're all bouncing to the beat
From the San Francisco River to Bahia's ocean ports
From the San Francisco River to Bahia's ocean ports
Throughout Baiano country always been the favorite sport.
You don't even need your dancing, dancing shoes
You don't even need your dancing, dancing shoes
When the rhythm grabs you, you can't get loose

Chorus - English
Chasing the Blues, Chasing the Blues...in Bahia
Chasing the Blues, Chasing the Blues...in Bahia
You always win when you lose when you're Chasing the Blues...in Bahia


Verse 2 - Português
Nas ruas de Salvador e no Porto da Barra
Nas ruas de Salvador e no Porto do Barra
Da praia do Sossego 'té a fronteira da Sergipe
Do Rio São Francisco 'té os portos marítimos da Bahia
Do Rio São Francisco 'té os portos marítimos da Bahia
Do alto de Barreiras 'té o mangue de Maragojipe.
Não precisa de roupa, roupa chique
Não precisa de roupa, roupa chique
O negóc' é aguentar o pique!

Chorus -- Português
Tô atrás do Blues, Tô atrás do Blues...na Bahia
Tô atrás do Blues, Tô atrás do Blues...na Bahia
Você sempre ganha quando você perde...
Tô atrás do Blues na...Bahia

Verse 3 - English
If life has made you sad and you're tired of the pain
If life has made you sad and you're tired of the pain
The odds are all against you, you're ready for a change
Set your compass for Bahia wherever you may be
Set your compass for Bahia wherever you may be
The moment you arrive, all your cares will be relieved
There are many roads you can, you can choose
There are many roads you can, you can choose
Take one that leads you to Bahia's blues

Chorus - English & Português
Chasing the Blues, Chasing the Blues...in Bahia
Tô atrás do Blues, Tô atrás do Blues...na Bahia
You always win when you lose when you're Chasing the Blues in Bahia
Chasing the Blues, Chasing the Blues...in Bahia
Tô atrás do Blues, Tô atrás do Blues...na Bahia
You always win when you lose when you're Chasing the Blues............in Bahia
