"Summertime" - Music by George Gershwin, lyrics by DuBose Heyward. 
From the 1935 opera, "Porgy and Bess."
 Am E7 2x

            Am    E7     Am
           E7            Am      E7     Am  E7
   And the livin' is easy
                 Dm    Dm maj7  Dm7
   Fish are jumpin'
   And the cotton is high

                    Am      E7        Am
   Oh, Your daddy's rich
             E7                Am       E7 Am  E7
   And your mamma's good lookin'
      C           Am 
   So hush little baby
   Dm  E7    Am   E7 Am E7 
   Don't you cry

                Am       E7    Am   
   One of these mornings
                   E7           Am E7   Am E7
   You're going to rise up singing
                    Dm        Dm maj7    Dm7
   Then you'll spread your wings
   And you'll take to the sky

                  Am       E7     Am
   But until that morning
            E7                        Am  E7  Am  E7
   There's a'nothing can harm you
             C         Am     Dm   E7        Am   E7   Am   E7
   With your daddy and mammy standing by

This is the closest to the actual arrangemt that I see up here, good job. you may want to look at a run of C6, D6, Em6 if you want to get that Ella Blues feeling.
Panama....Dm(Maj7) is most definately a chord and integral to the run here. In fact, there is a chord missing.
I play Dm----Dm(Maj7)----Dm----D6..
This gives you a root, 7, b7, 6 run which sounds great here.
