Ok Early Morning Jay, here you go. In this format I'm hesitant to get too specific with the chords for fear of it looking confusing, but there are lots of Gs played with the D added on the 2nd string, and Cs with the D added on the 2nd and maybe the G on the 1st as well, all relatively simple chords when you're used to them, but very interesting and certainly very pretty. They add to the great mood of the song. And it sure is a great song.

I envy you guys who have the voice to sing these songs in their original key. I have to play this in D to get within my range.

Of course, singing it in the original key and singing it well don't necessarily go hand in hand! Sometimes bringing a song down to your natural range is the way to go. Keep on singin' RFA!

While I'm here, and being reminded that Jay started this thread, I wanted to follow up on something... In another post we had gotten on the subject of "Harmony Song", but we never posted it! Well, better late than never...
Hope things are goin' good Jay!
