Yes but 4/4, key of F, not George

You just give up the answer without another clue? Anyway, I have never heard Ronnie Milsap's version so I wouldn't have guessed it, but maybe someone else may have....well I guess there is no one else to guess...

Name the song that shifts from a major chord to its minor (as in F to fm) , and the lyrics mirror that move in words. (think coleslaw)

I am trying to think of a song with the lyrics mirroring the chords...the melody shifts from a major 3rd to a minor 3rd interval. Do the lyrics have anything to do with the chord change or is it the melody?

The lyrics actually refer to a major to minor , using those exact words.

Ella Fitzgerald, Chet Baker, Diana Krall and many others covered this from the American Songbook. The composer was a Hoosier.

That Hoosier composer clue brought me to Cole Porter, then it took some time to find Every Time We Say Goodbye

Do you have any music theory about this song to share with us?

Good sleuthing, Mike. U have won a trip to Asia Minor, where the miners await to escort you underground.
No biggie on the theory - just the major/minor music-lyrics rarity for those music trivia buffs.

Woo-hoo, I always wanted to see the subterranean spaces in Istanbul. I wonder how the Bluegrass scene is there. Here's what it looks like: Basilica Cistern

This is an instrumental from the 70's. It's a Funk anthem that starts out with the guitar strumming a Stacked 4ths chord over and over for 4 measures until the horns take over and present a syncopated melody, while the guitar goes into a minor 7 chord laying down a pulsating funk rhythm.

Ok, I’ll go with it being a “game”...  we shall soldier on....

Name a tune/song the starts on the “do”, drops to “so”, then drops to “mi”.

Penned by an Oklahoman.,,and a pop/country hit in the sexy sixties.

You probably know, but we were moved to the “dreaded” games forum.
