It lasts a whole measure. I put in measure markers with |. When going from a chord to its maj7, hit the maj7 on the upstroke for good timing. I just got my hand out of a cast and am enjoying playing and being able to type again. I have been playing left handed piano for 7 weeks though and transposed the archive version of Philadelphia up a whole step (since the the tuning for that version is drop standard, i. e., DGCFAD). That version is right on the money by the way. I was thinking, a lot of us might not play piano and I know I hardly ever tune ALL my strings down a step. So if you play the archive version in standard, it might be way too high (unless you have some vice grips). If you transpose that version down, the fingering gets tough with things like Eb, Bb, and Ebmaj7. Also, it might still be too high for a lot of our voices. Here's a way to play it in standard tuning that's pretty easy, is 3 half steps flat (for easier singin'), amd is right on with a 3rd fret capo. It's just a transposition of what's in the archive but I thought it might be handy to have it written down. |C |D Philadelphia KEY CHANGE: |A F#m |C#m |A6 F#m |Dmaj7 D6 |A Amaj7 |D |E G Em Bm Em G Sometimes I think that I know what love's all about Cmaj7 C6 G Gmaj7 C D And when I see the light I know I'll be all right G Em Bm Em G I've got my friends in the world I had my friends Em Cmaj7 C6 G Gmaj7 C D When we were boys and girls and the secrets came unfurled KEY CHANGE (twice) G Em Bm Em G City of brotherly love place I call home Cmaj7 C6 G Gmaj7 C Don't turn your back on me I don't want to be alone D (Love lasts forever) G Em Bm Em G Some is talkin' to me callin' my name Em Cmaj7 C6 G Gmaj7 C Tell me I'm not to blame I won't be ashamed of love D (Philadelphia) KEY CHANGE A F#m C#m |A6 F#m |Dmaj7 D6 |A Amaj7 |D |E City of brotherly love brotherly love G Em Bm Em G Sometimes I think that I know what love's all about Em Cmaj7 C6 G Gmaj7 C And when I see the light I know I'll be all right D (Philadelphia)
