                       "A Dream Goes on Forever"
                            (Todd Rundgren)

Intro:	Gm7   A7sus4 A7   Dm7      E7
	 /   /   /   /     /   /   /   /
	Am7    Am7/D D6  Dm7/G
	 /   /   /   /     /   /   /   /

Verse 1:

	    Fmaj7                     Em7
          A million old soldiers will fade away
                Dm7        E7    Am
          But a dream goes on forever
              Gm7           C7            Fmaj7      Em7
          I'm left standing here I've got nothing to say
                 Dm7        G7    C
          All is silent within my dream

Verse 2:

          A thousand true loves will live and die
          But a dream lives on forever
          The days and the years will go streaking by
          But the time has stopped in my dream

Bridge  :    Gm           C7       F       Em
          We all have our everyday hopes and fears
                   Dm7       G7         C
          and you'll find no exception in me
              Gm           C7            F      Em
          but that doesn't get me thru a sea of tears
               A              A7      Dm7 G7
          over life's biggest tragedy

Verse 3 : Fmaj7                   Em
          You're so long ago and so far away
                 F           E7    Am
          But my dream lives on forever
            C7                        F           Em
          I guess I believe that I'll see you one day
                  Dm7          G7    C
          For without it there is no dream

	[repeat intro]

Verse 4 : Fmaj7                      Em
          You're so far away and so long ago
                  Dm7        E7    Am
          But my dream lives on forever
          Gm7         C7              Fmaj7  Em
          How much I loved you you'll never know
                   Dm7         G7    C
          Till you join me within my dream


          Gm7         C7              Fmaj7  Em
          How much I loved you you'll never know
                   Dm7         G7    C
          Till you join me within my dream

I haven't played this tab with the original recording, so I can't attest to its accuracy, but it sounds correct. As for voicing...I use barre chords for the Intro, and open chords for the rest (with the exception of the Gm7 and C7 which I barre at the 3rd fret). Although on the record the song is carried by a punchy sounding harpsichord, using a pick on this sounds sort of harsh to me. I use partial muting, and alternately strum, or pluck the strings with my fingers depending on the feeling needed for a particular passage. This arrangement sounds great for a solo vocal/acoustic guitar performance.
