Help, please: need the chords to this song recording.
This is the famous 1950s-1960s sign-off jingle of KSFO AM radio, San Francisco, California.
It is San Francisco in a song.
"The Sound of the City"
The sound of the city, the sounds that are heard, in San Francisco.
Are mixed with daylight's glimm'ring rays and moonbeam's shimm'ring glow.
When darkness settles on the city: homeward people on their way.
Chimes ringing softly in the stillness: fog creeping slowly 'cross the bay.
Hear the sound of the city, the sounds that are heard, in San Francisco.
On kay-ess-eff-oh, kay-ess-eff-oh, San Francisco.
This is not one of the easiest recordings to learn by ear.
The voices of the men singing seem to have a complex harmony
like barbershop quartet: a capella.
The voices might not be exactly in tune with my piano.
Here is the link to the original song in full.
