Seems like a simple question... song seems to be in key of D. But I cannot figure out how to describe the progression using the chord progression Roman numerals.
In the key of D, this would be
I -> IV -> bIII.
However, much depends on the context. For example, if the next chord were B♭maj, the the Fmaj would most likely be written as
Or it could be

Thank you, the song I have in mind is "Wilco - Handshake Drugs" Sorry I thought those were the only three chords, but Cmaj also makes an appearance during the chorus. Would it still be considered key of D? May 17, 2021 at 15:30
@mattacular Possibly. Cmaj could be bVII chord, borrowed from D minor. However, it all depends on context. As Todd Wilcox points out, the chord progression as is could be interpreted in C major, so the C chord in the chorus would be consistent with that.– AaronMay 24, 2021 at 11:45
