Final Fantasy VI – Kids Run Through the City Corner

PDF File Download: Final Fantasy VI – Kids Run Through the City Corner NAF Tab

Original Composer: Nobuo Uematsu

Technical notes: Requires three upper octave notes – not all flutes will be able to reach the very highest. Play on an NAF in the key of D# if you wish to accompany the original track.

About: This pretty, gentle piece is the town theme for Final Fantasy VI. Also worth mentioning is the version created for the Final Fantasy: Pray album, known as Não Chora Menina (Don’t Cry, Little Girl) which feels almost like a lullaby with it’s gentle guitar and beautiful lyrics in Portuguese (sung by Risa Ohki.) You could choose to play this piece either as the more upbeat version heard in the game, or as a gentle lullaby, and I’ve included the lyrics below.

On Playing: It’s fairly straightforward to play to begin with but the second section is quite heavy on the high notes with lots of jumping around, so good breath control is needed. Not all flutes will be able to reach the very highest note but take some time to familiarize yourself with your flute’s range and if you can’t reach it, just substitute in another note or pause for a beat.

Não Chora Menina:

Final Fantasy Pray – Não Chora Menina Lyrics

Não chora, menina, não chora mais.
Um dia você vai saber.
Na vida existe sempre a razão
E mesmo a tristeza tem valor.

 O que fez as lágrimas no seu rosto
É o carinho do seu coração.
E a menina que sabe o que é o carinho
Vai ser mais linda, linda mulher.

Uma estrela apareceu
Sorrindo pra você, menina.
E a menina que sabe o que é o carinho
Vai ser mais linda, linda mulher.

Don’t cry, little girl, don’t cry any more.
Someday you’ll know.
Life always has a reason,
And even sadness is worth something.

What puts tears on your face
Is the kindness in your heart.
And a girl who knows this kindness
Will be most beautiful, beautiful woman.

A star appears,
Smiling for you, little one.
And a girl who knows this kindness
Will be most beautiful, beautiful woman.
