Piano chords for "When The Lights Go Down"

When The Lights Go Down is one of favourites tracks from the 1990s and I love the version from Montreux. The bassline seems to be A,G,C,C#,D. Are there any musicians out these who know what the chords are?

Love this Jam...top 20 Prince and it doesn’t get enough love on the Org. Sorry, don’t know the chords.

I agree, whenever I recommend non-mainstream Prince songs to friends, that track always gets a mention. I've added it to quite a few of my "best of" cds.

It's just Am7 to D7. Use A-Dorian mode to solo over - A, B, C, D, E, F#, G, A

Thanks for the tip. I'll try that out.
