    Kehaulani, what I meant was the last 2 key of the song ended in (ii) and (i) of the D scale. Like I surrender all (A G F# E D). Please bear with me a little, I'm not a music major. Just having fun learning music.

    It seems clear and simple :
    I Surrender All is in D for us (C concert pitch), but chords given by the OP are transposed in A (probably for Eb instruments as alto sax). Take the chords for Bb instruments …

    In the 1st posted sheet, the last 2 measures are vi,ii,V-V7, I (in A Major) which is a common traditional ending progression.

    Yes, but the last measure is D. The key signature is off by a fifth. Which I guess shouldn't really matter who can reject that reality and replace it with their own [key signature].

    The original "1st posted sheet" has been replaced with a lead sheet in D. The original was in AMaj with the erroneous key signature of DMaj. If you are coming to this thread a little late, some of the posts can, therefore, be confusing.

    OP - just replace what I posted above replacing D with A and replace Bminor with Eminor. I see no need for me to rewrite the entire post. If you need help, though, just ask.
