Singers should observe that the melody for the chorus differs from the melody of the verses in measures 2 through 5. In these 4 measures, where the verse melody descends, the chorus melody ascends, and vice versa.
In the attachments, I have given the melody for the chorus rather than for the verses, because it feels to me more intuitive to use the chorus melody of 'A Memory Of You' as the point of reference for creating melody-based breaks, even though with most songs, one would typically use the melody for the verses rather than the melody for the chorus as the point of reference for creating melody based breaks when the chorus and verse melodies differ from each other.
Lyric Cheat Sheet
In the attachments, I have included a lyric cheat sheet that gives the first words of each of the verses of the song in large print. The reason why it is in large print is so that one can put the sheet on the floor - instead of on a music stand - when one is leading the singing on the song at the jam, and quickly glance at it before - not while - one starts singing the next verse of the song in case, in the moment, one forgets how the next verse begins (a common occurrence at jams and in live band performances).
