OK, I'm having brain-freeze on the one you're talking about (and I'm sure
I'll want to kick myself when I hear what you say...)  But I'm thinking
(with Randy Bachman still in mind) of the Guess Who's "American Woman".
There's the two "lead-in" notes that sort of "imply" chords...  but it's
really a one-chord song, don't you think?

(Ah, the depths of our probing intellectual curiosities...)
