Verse:
G                          E7
Sleeping in a cherry tree, High above a monastery
Am                                   D7
Where the bells are ringing slow, to say farewell when hours go.
G                                    E7
And all the while I'm dreaming of the ballad for my one true love
Am                               D7
Searching for the perfect way to say I love you.

Chorus:
G           C          G          C
Sweetheart, this is my dream come truuuuue

             God bless the babies that sleep in you

Sleeping in a motel room underneath a silver moon
With the windows open wide I can hear the stars go by
And all the while I 'm dreaming of The ballad for my one true love
