Quote from http://prince.org/msg/7/162993 :

Yeah, that's wrong...

The key is D minor, and it goes like this:

Dm7 / Gm7 / Gm7 / Dm7
Dm7 / Gm7 / Gm7 / Dm7
Eb / Bb / A7 / Dm7
Eb / Bb / A7 / A7

I don't understand: What is wrong? That's exactly what I have here (except for the odd minor 7 here and there). Only that I use a capo (3rd fret) and play Bm (which together with the capo "is" Dm). I'm just lazy and I don't like playing so many barree chords. That's why I often transpose songs and then use a capo so it is in the correct key.

The sevens makes this song kick ass. It's what gives it that extra funkyness, edge and weight. Taking them away is like taking the bread out of a pizza recipe;)
