         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---------!

    And felt you warm and near,
D                            Cmaj7

I play by ear and was very pleased to find that my chords were dead on with those shown here and I even had my capo in the correct fret! Played along with the greatest hits CD. This is my all time fav app! Where would I be without the talented musicians who contribute to this awesome site? Great job to all of you! 🤗🎹🎸🎵🎶🎼🎤
