Comment:
This is the George Benson version of this song ,he made is popular, i believe it was actually written by Leon Russel and there is one more verse that I'll try to include later.,
Also I'm not sure the Am to Am-7 to Am7 is the correct a ussage of the actual chords names used in this song, to put it in layman's terms I'd just say: at the start of that verse make a regular Am chord the rundown down the G string former the Am position 1 fret at each change before going to the D9th chord, the D9 sounds best if played on the 5th fret position rather than trying the lower or open position.
This is my first contribution to this site, I REALLY enjoy this app and will definitely be assisting as much as I have time for as well as making the .99 cent contribution if I can figure out how that's works without providing a CC.

To understand the reason that we carry on this way,
       F7            E7
We're lF7ost in this masquerAmade.
