Subject: RE: Chord Req: Depth of My Ego (Matt McGinn)
There are no chords in the book - McGinn sang unaccompanied and wouldn't have known anything about chords. But looking at the tune, it seems to be nothing but D minor all the way through except for a dominant on the upbeat to the last note of the verse and chorus. Which would suit if you think of it as a stark, chant-like song.

On the other hand you could probably make some very complicated jazz-ballad-style arrangement work, but if you were trying to do that you wouldn't be asking.
