The verse and bridge melodies are both diatonic D major.

The verse is based on a four-bar set of changes:

||: Imaj7 IVmaj7 | v7/III (V7/vi) vim7 | IVmaj7 iiim7 | IVmaj7 iiim7 :||

1. ----------------------------------------
| Gmaj7 F#m7 | Dmaj7 Gmaj7 A7||
| IVmaj7 iiim7 | Imaj7 IVmaj7 V7 ||

2. --------------------------
| Gmaj7 F#m7 | Dmaj7 ||

| IVmaj7 iiim7 | Imaj7 ||

In bar 4 of the third verse there is a quarter note chromatically descending "thumb line" in the low middle register (F# F E Eb)
