    Need some help, don’t know if this will get it but I’m open to suggestions. Love this song but the chords are not right and can’t seem to find them. Maybe one of you could give me an idea as to the chords and key changes in the song. Easier chords would be appreciated (I’m not a fan of Ebmaj7 – lol)

    WKRP in Cincinnati Theme Song Tom Wells 1978
    Dmaj7 Em7 A DM7
    Baby, if you ever wondered- Wondered whatever became of me
    Dmaj7 Em7 A DM7
    Im living on the air in Cincinnati – Cincinnati W-K-R-P
    Ebmaj7 Fm7 Bb Ebmaj7
    Got kind of tired of packing and unpacking – Town to town, up and down the dial
    Ebmaj7 Fm7 Bb
    Maybe you and me were never meant to be- Just maybe think of me
    Ebmaj7
    once in a while
    Dmaj7 Em7 A DM7
    Headin’ up that highway leavin’ you behind, hardest thing I ever had to do.
    Dmaj7 Em7 A
    Broke my heart in two but baby pay no mind, the price for findin’ me was loosin’
    DM7
    you. Chord change > memories help me hide my lonesome feelin’,
    Far away from you and feelin’ low, it’s getting’ late my friend, my love I really miss you so, take good care of you I gotta go.
    Interlude:
    Dmaj7 Em7 A DM7
    Baby, if you ever wondered- Wondered whatever became of me
    Dmaj7 Em7 A DM7
    Im living on the air in Cincinnati – Cincinnati W-K-R-P
    Ebmaj7 Fm7 Bb Ebmaj7
    Got kind of tired of packing and unpacking – Town to town, up and down the dial
    Ebmaj7 Fm7 Bb
    Maybe you and me were never meant to be- Just maybe think of me
    Ebmaj7 Dbmaj7 Ebmaj7
    once in a while Im at W-K-R-P in Cin-cin-na-ti

    These are some great sites. I have a few more that maybe you could consider adding for our guitar folks looking to learn songs. They have helped me along with the sites above.

    Some great web sites with chords:

    Country stuff: http://www.classic-country-song-lyrics.com/

    http://www.guntheranderson.com/v/tocb.htm has chords but above chorus and versus.

    http://bettylou.zzruss.com/allartists.htm wonderful site but chords may not be accurate always

    http://www.traditionalmusic.co.uk/rock-and-pop-songs-with-chords/Its_A_Good_Day-Peggy_Lee_1947.htm I like the bold large print. Ha.

    http://www.yourchords.com/290036/John-Denver/Sunshine-On-My-Shoulders-ver-3-Chords/ another great site for chords.

    http://www.don-guitar.com/transpose.html helpful for Chord Transposing and capo placement chart

    Thanks,
    Jim Maher :)
