I've never much cared for this 1962 weeper from Mike Clifford, but I'm
including it at AAA anyway for historical reasons: the chord progression -
specifially the chromatically descending bass line over minor-6ths and
half-diminisheds - is an uncanny foreshadowing of the Beach Boys' 'God Only
Knows' from four years later.

                            "Close To Cathy"
                        (E. Shuman - B. Goodman)

Verse 1:

	 E              B/D#
	I'm so close to Cathy
	  Ddim                         A/C#
	I know just what she's dreaming of
	   Am6/C                  E/B     A#m7-5
	She always calls me up to tell me
	 A        B                G#m7  G7  F#m7  B7
	   Every time she falls in love

Verse 2:

	Oh, I'm so close to Cathy
	I know her every tender sigh
	She loves to cry upon my shoulder
	 A         B              E
	   Always for some other guy


	    Am7 D7        G
	Oh, why    can't she see
	    F#m7  B7   F#m7     B7         F#m7
	The one  true  lasting love in her life
	Should be me

Verse 3:

	I'm so close to Cathy
	As close as anyone can be
	   Am6/C                E/B
	And I'll stay close to Cathy
	A#m7-5 Am6 G#m7 C#m7  F#m7        B7      E
	   Hoping   someday  she'll feel close to me
