...MY CHERIE AMOUR... by Stevie Wonder
 
*from 'My Cherie Amour' (1969)*


[Intro]

D7     Cmaj7 C6 C  F
 La la la,   la la la,
F6/C Fmaj7 F7b5 F7     Gmaj7  D7
 La  la    la   la, la la.

[Verse]

       Gmaj7      C11                Fmaj7  C/D
My che-rie amour; lovely as a summer day.
       Gmaj7      C11                  Fmaj7  C/D
My che-rie amour; distant as the Milky Way.

[Chorus]

       Cmaj7      C/D                    F9
My che-rie amour; pretty little one that I adore,
E7               Bm7     E7          A7
 You're the only girl my heart beats for;
D7                        G6   C/D  D7
 How I wish that you were mine.

[Verse]

     Gmaj7    C11                    Fmaj7  C/D
In a cafe, or sometimes on a crowded street,
          Gmaj7             C11           Fmaj7  C/D
I've been near you, but you never noticed me.

[Chorus]

       Cmaj7      C/D                          F9
My che-rie amour; won't you tell me, how could you ignore,
E7                        Bm7   E7 A7
 That, behind that little smile I  wore?
D7                        G6   C/D
 How I wish that you were mine.

[Interlude]

D7     Cmaj7 C6 C  F
 La la la,   la la la,
F6/C Fmaj7 F7b5 F7     Gmaj7  D7
 La  la    la   la, la la.

[Verse]

      Gmaj7           C11                   Fmaj7  C/D
Maybe someday, you'll see my face among the crowd?
      Gmaj7         C11                        Fmaj7  C/D
Maybe someday, I'll share your, little distant cloud?

[Chorus]

       Cmaj7      C/D                    F9
My che-rie amour; pretty little one that I adore,
E7               Bm7     E7          A7
 You're the only girl my heart beats for;
D7                        G6   C/D  D7
 How I wish that you were mine.

[Coda]

D7     Cmaj7 C6 C  F
 La la la,   la la la,
F6/C Fmaj7 F7b5 F7     Gmaj7  D7
 La  la    la   la, la la.

(Repeat to Fade)

This arrangement is overly complex - covering both elements of the melody and the chord structure. It would be far too complex for a solo performer to sing along with, and moreover it's in the wrong key (original begins on C#maj7 on the first verse).

I'll be uploading an easier version soon for more practical accompaniment for vocal, and truer to the chord structure of the original recording by Stevie Wonder. Good effort though for sure!
