[Verse 1]
Dsus2/4                       G             G   G/F#   Em
         What a dream I had,     pressed in or - gan - dy,
D                        Cmaj7
   Clothed in crinoline      ...of a smoky burgundy,
G                   A     A4
   Softer than the rain--------!

[Verse 2]
         I wandered empty streets,
      G            G   G/F#   Em
Down  ...past the shop dis - plays,
D                          Cmaj7
   I heard cathedral bells     ...tripping down the alleyways,
G               A    A4
   As I walked on---------!

[Verse 3]
D               D4  D  Dsus2
   And when you ran to me,
       G                   G  G/F#  Em
Your   ...cheeks flushed with the night,
D                              Cmaj7
   We walked on frosted fields    ...of juniper and lamplight,
G               A      A4
   I held your hand---------!

[Verse 4]
         And when I awoke,
G                 G   G/F# Em 
    And felt you warm and near,
D                            Cmaj7
    I kissed your honey hair    ...with my grateful tears,

   Oh, I love you, girl-----,      oh, how I love--- you----!
