A lovely tune written by W.R. Aim … Do you think your chord setting might have gone a bit astray in the middle of the second part?

Thanks for spotting that, Alistair. Don’t know what went wrong, but something did!

Anyway, re-chorded now (and I’ve also changed the Bmin’s to GMaj’s in the A part. )

Please let me know if OK now - or not!

I’m sure that’s OK now. Wasn’t much wrong with it first time … Just got a bit out of sync.
I’ve just been reading your corrected version in the dining room of the hotel I’m staying at in Amsterdam & humming the melody while "listening" to the chords … Getting some bemused looks from the other diners!
