      I love that. Simple and pure.

      AAAA

      The first A section is an abbreviated version of the following sections but they are essentially the same. The abbreviated first A section just doesn't repeat the last 4 bars of chord sequence. Very simple and very effective. I like that a lot.

      Which points out something interesting. That form is AAAA. That's about as simple as you get. And yet it sounds more complicated. The internal form makes each section come alive. The internal form meaning line to line at 4 bars each. The internal form is...

      ABCC with the B being almost identical to A with the exception of the last chord in B. It goes to the III chord instead of the IV that the A uses. It's simple, clever, and moving. And doesn't sound as simple as it is.
