'Tabbed' by Madfer39

These are the chords for the album version.
It's Hugh's version of the Louis Armstrong song, which is at the same time, a version 
from an Argentinian Tango called 'El Choclo' by Ángel Villoldo.
As you might know, the first verses are sung in a mix of Spanish and Argentinian slang.

Standard Tuning. No capo needed.

Con este tango que es burlón y compadrito
Se ató dos alas la ambición de mi suburbio;

Con este tango nació el tango, y como un grito
                                        Dm    A7
Salió del sórdido barrial buscando el cielo;

Conjuro extraño de un amor hecho cadencia
            D7                        Gm
Que abrió caminos sin más ley que la esperanza,
Mezcla de rabia, de dolor, de fe, de ausencia
                     A7                    Dm
Llorando en la inocencia de un ritmo juguetón.

          C7                 F
Por tu milagro de notas agoreras
                   C7                      F
Nacieron, sin pensarlo, las paicas y las grelas,
          A7                         Dm
Luna de charcos, canyengue en las caderas
Y un ansia fiera en la manera de querer...

I touch your lips and all at once the sparks go flying
Those devil lips that know so well the art of lying
And though I see the danger still the flame grows higher
          A7                              Dm
I know I must surrender to your kiss of fire

Just like a torch you set the soul within me burning
          Dmaj                         Gm
I must go out along this road of no returning
              Gm                             Dm
And though it burns me and it turns me into ashes
                 A7                           Dm
My whole world crashes without your kiss of fire

(verse 1, verse 2, bridge)

           C7                             F
I can't resist you what good is there is trying
(Por tu milagro de notas agoreras)
                     C7                         F
What good is there denying you're all that I desire
(Por tu milagro de notas agoreras)
              A7                                Dm
Since I first kissed you my heart was yours completely
(Luna de charcos, canyengue en las caderas)
           Bb                              A
If I'm a slave then it's a slave I want to be...
(Y un ansia fiera en la manera de querer...)

       Bb   A           Bb   A
Don't pity me... don't pity me...

Give me your lips the lips you only let me borrow
          Dmaj                           Gm
Love me tonight and let the devil take tomorrow
             Gm                                Dm
I know that I must have your kiss although it dooms me
       A7                     Dm
It consumes me, your kiss of fire.
