"The original appears to be in key of Bf; if you love bar chords
try this with bflat, F7, cminor instead. I have written it in the
key of A for sanity.

Enya does this with a simple pick: T234 T3 (or some variation thereof)

VOCAL VERSION:
(it's simple, but it works) -just pick the chords; this song is meant to
show off vocal improvisation, and the very nice slides up to the higher
notes.  And don't spare the sentimentality; Remember valentine's day
isn;t that far away!
Time sig: feels like a 3/4 to me:

 A           E7       A
 I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls
      E7      (bm)     (E7)   A
 with vassals and serfs by my side
     A                  E7      A
 And-of all those who assembled within those walls
      E7       (Bm)      (E7) A
 that I was the hope and the pride.
--------------------------------------------------------
**if picking ignore the optional chords; nice for strumming)

A     E7     Bm           A
I had riches too great to count
      E7     Bm      E           E7
and a high ancestral name ...... but
A      E7           A
I also dreamt which pleased me most .....that
E7       (Bm)          A
you loved me still the same.
A        Bm          (A)  E7    Bm        A
That you loved me.... you loved still the same;
A        Bm           (A) E7      Bm        A
that you loved me ...you loved me still the same;
A         E7       (Bm) D       E7   A
that you loved me still.........the same..
-----------------------------------------------------------
vocal note: keep up the momentum, building on the last
4 lines; don't insert a rest between lines.

Second verse:
-------------
  A           E7      A
I dreamt that suitors sought my hand
     E7     (bm)   E7    A
that knights upon bended knee
      A          Eu       A
and with vows no maiden's heart could withstand
     E7      (bm)   E7      A
they pledged their faith to me.
---------------------------------
A     E7          Bm               A
And I dreamt that one of the noble host
     E7       Bm      E         E7
came forth my hand to claim.....But
   A      E7           A
.. I also dreamt which pleased me most....that
     Bm        (A)  Em      Bm        A
you loved me , you loved me still the same........
A        Bm           (A) E7      Bm        A
that you loved me ...you loved me still the same;
A         E7       (Bm) D       E7   A
that you loved me still.........the same..
