Gilberto Gil – Andar com Fé

This is the first Gilberto Gil song I heard and this live version is beautiful. This summer, I was lucky enough to see Gilberto Gil live at the Barbican where he performed a similar version.

I believe he is accompanied here by his son, Bem Gil.

Andá com fé eu vou
Que a fé não costuma faiá (x4)

Que a fé tá na mulher
A fé tá na cobra coral
Oh oh!
Num pedaço de pão

A fé tá maré
Na lâmina de um punhal
Oh oh!
Na luz, na escuridão

Andá com fé eu vou
Que fé não costuma faiá (x4)

A fé tá na manhã
A fé tá na anoitecer
Oh oh!
No calor do verão

A fé tá viva e sã
A fé também tá pra morrer
Oh oh!
Triste na solidão

Andá com fé eu vou
Que a fé não costuma faiá (x4)

Certo ou errado até
A fé vai onde quer que eu vá
Oh oh!
A pé ou de avião

Mesmo a quem não tem fé
A fé costura acompanhar
Oh oh!
Pelo sim, pelo não

Andá com fé eu vou
Que a fé não costuma faiá (x6)

Walking with faith, I go
As faith doesn’t fail

Oh how faith is in a woman
Faith is in a coral snake
Oh oh!
It is in a piece of bread

Faith is in the tide
In the blade of a dagger
Oh oh!
In the light, the darkness

Walking with faith, I go
As faith doesn’t fail

Faith is in the morning
Faith is in night-fall
Oh oh!
In the heat of summer

Faith is alive and healthy
Faith is also there to die
Oh oh!
Sadness in solidarity

Walking with faith, I go
As faith doesn’t fail

Whether right or wrong
Faith goes wherever I want to go
Oh oh!
By foot or by plane

Even for those who don’t have faith
Faith accompanies you
Oh oh!
Whether yes or no

Walking with faith, I go
As faith doesn’t fail
