Default Help to ID a mid-70s song (soft rock/ easy listening)

Hi dears

A challenge for you! A good friend asked me for finding a song that he heard on the radio in midlles 70s. (by 1973-75, or 76). He fell in love with that song at first listening and record it on a tape, but he lost it months later.

As a try to find the song, my friend made a "sample" on which he himself sings (by solmization) the tune - and the only word he remembered of the lyrics; "goodbye" and another one ends / rhyme with "down" (get down?) - That's all he can remember. Besides he isn't a native English speaker...

Can anybody help? Any hint...
NOTE: For sure that unknown song is a kind of soft rock/ easy listening. There's a long guitar solo in fade out too...

I think it's a famous song, not a great hit, maybe a one that didn't chart... of a famous band/artist in early stage... idk

here's the sample YT: /watch?v=qGds2J2Uwn4

Thanks in advance

Got the link to work. Its a tough ask. The riff from 1:18 to 1:31 is really familiar.
Maybe George Harrison?
