Zep, is that the melody? And you want to know which chords to play over? Well, I dunno . . . try a C6 going to a Bsus4.
There are supposed to be a bunch of rules when it comes to composing music, but they've never been of any use to me. Just experiment and try to find out which chords sound good. (if you want to go to a modulation, the 2nd and the 7th chords make good pivots, btw)
