I suspect that these chords are correct, but, as always, you may think differently and 
to tweak it here or there. I hope I've at least provided you with some sort of starting 
with which to begin. Thanks! Enjoy!

"I Dreamed Of My Old Lover" by Elvis Costello, from the album "Secret, Profane, and 
(Lyrics are taken from elviscostello.com, Costello's official website.)

C            G      F        C
I dreamed of my old lover last night
  F      Am   Dm        C
I wonder if I spoke out loud
G    Dm         F      Am
If by chance my husband overheard
     F      Am        Dm     C
He'd put my face back in the crowd


C             G         F       C
His eyes were clear and gentle then
    F         Am      Dm      C
He'd kiss the worries from my brow
  G      Dm       F     Am
I long to fall to sleep again
 F           Am      Dm        C
And I wonder how he would look now


C              G              F      C
Would our kids grow stubborn or grow strong
     F             Am           Dm      C
Would their limbs bronze insult to the sun
G        Dm     F         Am
I wonder how it feels but then
 F       Am      Dm    C
I rarely dream of anyone


      E         Am        G       C
In the songs of shame and tales of dread
         F         Am      Dm        C
Where they seal the lovers lips with lead
  E       Am           G             C
And all the vines wind through their eyes


F
But no one knows this passion now
Dm
No one knows this passion now


C            G      F    C
So I keep this fancy to myself
  F        Am      Dm       C
I keep my lipstick twisted tight
G  Dm             F     Am
I long to fall to sleep again
      F           Am    Dm      C
'Cos I dreamed of my old lover last night
