This simple lead sheet of Cinderella by Steven Curtis Chapman contains the intro instrumental melody each verse notated out with a repeat to the chorus. In Bb with capo chords on third fret for Guitarists.

Each verse is notated separately as the rhythm and melody for each verse is slightly different. To try and notate all verses together and get each nuance of the rhythm and melody of the different verses would have made the music look too cluttered. Instead I’ve opted for notating each verse separately with a repeat back to the chorus with directions for going into each verse. This makes it more clear as the chords are also slightly different at the end of the first chorus going into the second verse and the end of the second chorus with the extended instrumental/mid-eight section into the third verse. So basically depending on which verse you are going into will depend on where you jump to in the music at the end of the chorus.

The small notes at the beginning and end are the instrumental melody played on the Piano/Keyboard. The bracketed notes are alternate melody notes sung in the last chorus. Strangely this does not end on a common cadence but rather concluding on chord IV which is unusual for a piece of music. If you feel this sounds strange to your ears you can finish on the root chord should you wish to on the last bar. But that is how Chapman ends on the recordings I have heard.
