Let It Rain

Here's another way of approaching it: Remember the intro?

Maybe it's just me, but I first learned this when the album dropped. I figured simply:

intro/break - A G A,
verse - D Am C G D.
cho - D Am D Am C G D

With some added notes here and there, just because.

Key of G.

Accounts for all the chords, especially I,IV,V. The Am is simply a relative minor of the 'IV' chord.

Use of the 'II' chord (A major in this case) has long been a variant seen in blues and related music forms. For example "Walk Right In", also in key of G.

Seems a lot less complicated viewed this way.
