I changed this to the key of F from the OLGA version in G (which messed up

the march of chords in the bridge, so I fixed that here). There was also

a version in D, where the progression seemed way off. This is sort of a

piano tune, so some difficulty has arisen in interpreting it for the


I really think this song is in the key of F and both of the OLGA versions

are incorrect. If anybody wants to correct me as to the key of the song,

please do. And please correct me on any other details. In fact, if

someone wants to work out the intro in F, I would be much obliged.

Anyway, hope you like it. Maybe it will replace the OLGA versions.
