Chord progression for Richard Rodgers' This Nearly Was Mine. This is from the musical "South Pacific". The only jazz version I know of this is a wonderful performance by pianist Cecil Taylor, bassist Buell Neidlinger and drummer Dennis Charles recorded on Cecil's album "The World Of Cecil Taylor". This was perhaps the last recordings of Cecil playing a show tune.

Page 1 and Page 2 of the score for this progresssion.
