Dbm7
Softly, in the dusk, a woman is singing to me;
Bm7
She takes me back down the vista of my years, until I see
Dbm7                                    Bm7 
I see a child underneath the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings
A7 
Pressing the poised feet of his mother who smiles at him as she sings.
Bm7  Dbm7  B  A 
Cucurucu, cucurucu


D  Bm  Gbm  A
Mmmmmmm


Bm
Softly now in the evening dusk, a woman is singing to me;
Gbm                             E
She takes me back down the vista of my years, until I see
D                               Bm
A boy, a child underneath the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings
Gbm                                     E
Pressing the poised feet of his mother who smiles at him as she sings
D               Bm
Yearning to belong, yearning to belong
Gbm                             E
My heart beats with a ceaseless longing of a yearning to belong
D                       Bm
In spite of myself, and all of these nursery songs
Gbm                                     E
My heart beats with a ceaseless longing of a yearning to belong


D       Bm
Cucurucu, cucurucu
Gbm             E
Singing cucurucu, cucurucu
 

Bm  A  E  Abm7
Mmmmmmm


Bm              A              E      Db7
Till the melodies of childish days, are upon, upon me
                Bm              A
And they take me back, back down the river
        E                       Db7
They keep leading me on, they lead me to the sea
   Bm                     A
And all of my manhood is cast
E                               Db7
Down in the flood of remembrance, and I weep like a child for the past.


D               Bm
Singing cucurucu, cucurucu
Gbm             E
Singing cucurucu, cucurucu
 

D  Bm  Gbm  A
Mmmmmmm


D                                       Bm
I see a child underneath the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings
Gbm                                     A
Pressing the poised feet of his mother who smiles at him as she sings.
D                       Bm
Listen to me son, I'll tell you why your father's strong
Gbm                             E
Cause he can still say every single day, he's yearning to belong
D               Bm
Yearning to belong, yearning to belong
Gbm                                     E
My heart beats with a ceaseless longing of a yearning to belong
D                               Bm
In spite of myself, and all of these nursery songs
Gbm                                             E
My heart beats with a ceaseless, meets with a peaceless burning to belong


D               Bm
Singing cucurucu, cucurucu
Gbm     E
Singing cucurucu
D               Bm
Singing cucurucu, cucurucu
Gbm     E      E      E      E      E
Cucurucu

  1. This is the version that’s found on youtube. There’s another version on Spotify that’s a bit restructured and has an opening. Any ideas on if the chords for the spotify version can be found anywhere?
