Intro:

Gmaj7, Cmaj7 (x4)

Verse 1:

Gmaj7           Cmaj7     Gmaj7          Cmaj7
 Sing a song of sixpence, pocket full of rye,
Gmaj7           Cmaj7    Gmaj7      Cmaj7
 Hush-a bye, my baby; no need to be crying.

Bridge 1:

Bm                         A7              Am7         D
 You can burn the midnight oil with me, as long as you will.
Bm                A7            Am7    Daug    (Gmaj7)
 Stare out at the moon upon the window-sill and dream...

Verse 2:

Gmaj7           Cmaj7     Gmaj7          Cmaj7
 Sing a song of sixpence, pocket full of rye,
Gmaj7           Cmaj7    Gmaj7      Cmaj7
 Hush-a bye, my baby; no need to be crying.

Bridge 2:

        Bm               A7           Am7              D
There's dew drops on the window-sill, gumdrops in your head.
Bm             A7                 Am7          Daug    (Gmaj7)
 Slipping into dream land; you're nodding your head, so dream...

Gmaj7, Cmaj7 (x4)

Bm  A7, Am7  D, Bm  A7, Am7  Daug

Gmaj7, Cmaj7 (x2)

Verse 3:

Gmaj7              Cmaj7     Gmaj7          Cmaj7
 Dream of West Vir-ginia, or of the British Isles.
Gmaj7              Cmaj7                 Gmaj7     Cmaj7
 'Cos when you are dreaming, you see for miles and miles.

Bridge 3:

Bm                 A7        Am7            D
 When you are much older, re-member when we sat.
   Bm              A7              Am7             D
At midnight on the window-sill and had this little chat...

Coda:

    Gmaj7  Cmaj7
And dream...
            Gmaj7  Cmaj7
Come on and dream,
            Gmaj7  Cmaj7
Come on and dream.
    Gmaj7  Cmaj7
And dream...
    Gmaj7  Cmaj7
And dream...
            Gmaj7  Cmaj7
Come on and dream.
