    Hello Renata
    No need to post things as being in a certain key.
    I have tweaked your chart a little.
    Agua De Beber (simple) - Antonio-Carlos Jobim

    1) Put it back in A- which is the standard instrumental key though it is done in lots of keys for singers .
    2) Cleaned up the layout so the sections would line up at the left first bar.
    3) Changed the name to Ague De Beber (simple) not to imply any lesser value but too the contrary.
    A simplified chord chart usually shows the harmonic shape of a song much better*

    *for years I struggled to memorize complicated chord forms until I discovered it boils down to I IV V or i iv v

    Have you recorded this arrangement?
    I'd love to hear it

    This is a version I copped from a musician who had a Jobim fake book from Brazil; it conforms to the Astrud Gilberto studio recording. (The F#7b13 chord should have a b9 addended on there as well, but iRP doesn’t recognize that chord .)

    Actually you can use the F#7b9#5, which is the same thing as F#7b9b13 🙂

    Here's also the original Jobim version from 1963:
