Right then. This is a tad longer than I originally expected, but I've included
the music all the way through the song, rather than just doing separate riffs,
as there are far too many tiny differences between riffs, which I have included
here. Make sure you are able to play the song alongside yourself, or you know it
backwards, otherwise you won't have a chance. Nevermind. Anyway, here it is.
Enjoy!

                                    Dream On

                          (Version Datestamp: 27.12.94)

                                 -End of Intro-

e|-1--1---1--0-----0-|-1-----1--0-----0--|-1-----1--0----0-|
B|------3------1-----|---3--------2------|---3--------1----|
G|---------------2---|-----3--------2----|-----2--------2--|
D|-0---------2-------|-0--------2--------|-0--------2------|
A|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|
        Every -     I  look in the             All these-

e|-1------1--0-----0-|-1-----1--0-----0--|-1-----1--0----0-|
B|---3---------2-----|---3--------1------|---3--------2----|
G|-----3---------2---|-----2--------2----|-----3--------2--|
D|-0---------2-------|-0--------2--------|-0--------2------|
A|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|
   Face-                     The past
At this point, guitar 2 starts stumming the chords on top:

                                           Dm       Am
e|-1------1--0-----0-|-1-----1--0-----0--|-1-----1--0----0-|
B|---3---------1-----|---3--------2------|---3--------1----|
G|-----2---------2---|-----3--------2----|-----2--------2--|
D|-0---------2-------|-0--------2--------|-0--------2------|
A|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|
   In the night-       Like dusk             Isn't that-

   Bm        A
e|-1------1--0-----0-|
B|---3---------2-----|
G|-----3---------2---|
D|-0---------2-------|
A|-------------------|
E|-------------------|
   Everybody-Price


Then distort guitar 2, for the chorus (dakka dakka dakka dakka dakka:)

e|-------------------|-------------------|
B|-------------------|-------------------|
G|-------------------|-------------------|
D|-----7---7---7---7-|-7---7---7---7-----|
A|-----7---7---7---7-|-7---7---7---7-----|
E|-----5---5---5---5-|-5---5---5---5-----|

e|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|-----------------|
B|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|-----------------|
G|-----7-----7-------|----5----5---------|----3----3-------|----5----5-------|
D|--7--7--7--7--7-7--|--5-5--5-5--5-5----|--3-3--3-3--3-3--|--5-5--5-5--5-5--|
A|-5-----5------5-5--|-3----3-----3-3----|-1----1-----1-1--|-3----3-----3-3--|
E|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|-----------------|
   I  know             Nobody knows        Where it comes    and where it goes

e|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|-----------------|
B|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|-----------------|
G|-----7-----7-------|----5----5---------|----3----3-------|----5----5-------|
D|--7--7--7--7--7-7--|--5-5--5-5--5-5----|--3-3--3-3--3-3--|--5-5--5-5--5-5--|
A|-5-----5------5-5--|-3----3-----3-3----|-1----1-----1-1--|-3----3-----3-3--|
E|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|-----------------|
   I know              Everybody sins      You've got-       To throw away

Or something along those lines. It doesn't actually matter what you play if you
put enough distortion on it anyway:)

Then back to the verse + guitar 1:

e|-1-----1--0-----0--|-1-----1--0-----0--|
B|---3--------1------|---3--------2------|
G|-----2--------2----|-----3--------2----|
D|-0--------2--------|-0--------2--------|
A|-------------------|-------------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------|
                                |
Guitar 2, with distortion:      |
                                |
e|                             |---------------------------|
B|                             |---------------------------|
G|                             |9b10r 7 -------------------|
D|                             |--------8---3~-------------|
A|                             |---------------------------|
E|                             |---------------------------|

Back to guitar 1 again:

e|-1-----1--0-----0--|-5-----8-----12----|
B|---3--------1------|-6-----9-----13----|
G|-----2--------2----|-7-----8-----14----|
D|-0--------2--------|-------------------|
A|-------------------|-------------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------|
   |        |          |     |     ||
   |        |          |     |     ||   In time with this, guitar 2 (clean)
e|-1--------3--------|-5-----8-----12----|-----------------|
B|-3--------3--------|-6-----9-----13----|-----------------|
G|-2--------0--------|-7-----8-----14----|-----------------|
D|-0-----------------|-------------------|-----------------|
A|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|

And guitar 1 does this for the next verse:

e|-10-------12-------|-13----------15----------------------|
B|----10-------10----|----10----------15-------------------|
G|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
            -life's    books-       -ages

While guitar 2 does a very weird bendy thing (may well be a keyboard):

e|-10--------------------------|
B|---10-14r13-12--13r12--12b13-|
G|-----------------------------|
D|-----------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|

Guitar 1:
e|-10-------12-------|-13----------15----------------------|
B|----10-------10----|----10----------15-------------------|
G|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
        Live-          Fools-      Sages

Guitar 2:

e|-----------------------------------------|
B|-10-12b13-13b14r13-12-12b13r12-10-13r12--|
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------|

Guitar 1:

e|-10-------12-------|-13----------15----------------------|
B|----10-------10----|----10----------15-------------------|
G|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
      You-  True                    Hooooooooooo

Guitar 2:

e|--------------------------|
B|-10~--8~--6~--3~----------| This bit last for the same duration
G|--------------------------|    as the riff above, so play it slowly,
D|--------------------------|
A|--------------------------|
E|--------------------------|

Guitar 1:

e|-10-------12-------|-13----------15----------------------|
B|----10-------10----|----10----------15-------------------|
G|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------|-------------------------------------|
         All these         Come-

Guitar 2 is silent for this riff, and at the end becomes distorted for the
verse.
Try and get it to fade in just with just the one striking of the power chord.

E|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|-----------------|
   Dream on            Dream on            Dream on          Dream 'till your-

And back to guitar 1, clean, immediately after guitar 2:

e|-1------1--0-----0-|-1-----1--0-----0--|-1-----1--0----0-|
B|---3---------1-----|---3--------2------|---3--------1----|
G|-----2---------2---|-----3--------2----|-----2--------2--|

                                           |        |
                                           |        |  In time, guitar 2
                                           |        |           (clean)

E|                                       |-----------------|


Then guitar 1, still clean, straight after it's last riff:

e|-------------0-----|
B|-------3-----------|
G|-0h2-3---3-0-------|
D|-------------------|
A|-------------------|
E|-------------------|

And into the next verse, with guitar 2 strumming the original chords in the
background (I think):

Guitar 1:

   Dm      Am    Bm         A
e|-8-------10--|-13-12-10---10----------|
B|-10------11--|---------10----10-11----|

B|-10------11--|---------10----10-11----|
G|-9-------12--|---------------------12-|

E|-------------|------------------------|
     You-

e|-8-------10--|-13-12-10---15----12----|
B|-10------11--|---------10----15----13-|
G|-9-------12--|------------------------|
D|-------------|------------------------|

E|-------------------|-------------------|-----------------|-----------------|
   Sing with me        Just for today      Never tomorrow or the good Lord will-

A new riff!!! WOW!!! (although it *does* seem quite similar to the last, though)
Same guitar:

e|--------------------|------------------|------------------|-----------------|

In time with whoeversheis singing in the riff above, guitar 1 with distortion
does this:

The one bit I'm not too sure about is on the second verse, where there is a very
bendy instrument indeed. What I have done sounds fine, but I think that it is
either a keyboard or a guitar with a slide (I don't have one so I wouldn't
know). It's also played using a twelve string.  It gets a little confusing
towards the end, I'm sure you'll manage.


                                     Lyrics
                                     ~~~~~~

Every time that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past has gone
In the night like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got their price in life to pay
I know and nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know and everybody sins
You've got the truth to throw away

Half my life's in books written ages
Live and learn from fools and from sages
You know it's true
All these feelings come back to you
Sing with me sing for the years
Sing for the laughter sing for the tears
Sing with me just for today
Never tomorrow or the good Lord will take you away
Dream on, dream on, dream on
Dream until your dreams come true

Every time that you look in the mirror
All those lines in your face getting clearer
You know it's true
All these feelings are coming back to you
Sing with me sing for the years
Sing for the laughter sing for the tears
Sing with me just for today
Never tomorrow or the good Lord will take you away
Sing with me sing for the years
Sing for the laughter sing for the tears
Sing with me just for today
Never tomorrow or the good Lord will take you away

Dream on, Dream on, Dream on
Dream until your dreams come true
Dream on
Dream until your dreams come true
Dream until your dreams come true
Dream until your dreams
Dream until your dreams come true
