I'll Be There was written in 1970 and reached the ears of the world and soared to the top. Words and music by Berry Gordy, Hal Davis, Willie Hutch and Bob West. I like to play this pop song in 4/4 time with a moderate beat in the Key of F. I've listed other chord charts to the song in different keys. too.
