What song is this?

Hey guys I have a favor to ask of you. I've been looking for this song for a while. It's a very old song. I don't remember any of the lyrics, but I did try to play the first two lines of the piano background on a virtual piano. I'm sure I have the notes right, though the beat might be a bit off.

Here it is: http://minus.com/lJ0TWZyMDMZ8c

Thanks!

I think I recognize it but I can't remember the title either. Could it be something by Gershwin?

Wild stab, but could it be the theme from Rawhide?

Do you remember what genre of music? Was it a male or female singer(s)? What other kinds of instruments? And when you say very old, can you approximate a timeline?

I heard it many times on my local radio station, which plays Billboard top music from 60s to now. The song sounds like somewhere around Elton John's time.

It's a male singer.

I'm not sure about other instruments, but piano is what I remember. I'll see if I can get more of the song on here.

The chord changes sound like Lou Rawls - You'll Never Find

Tightrope by Leon Russell?
