The second voicing of Amaj7 has the high third but loses the low fifth
Suggest high voicing in the verse, low voicing in the chorus


PASSING CHORDS:
B(4)

A suspension occurs on Beat-1 (syncopated)
Played thus:

F#m                  B7sus4   B7

Leaving the capo at the fourth fret after Part II an effective
arrangement of this song can be performed in the key of Am/C.
