D B7 Em7 Edim Darn that dream I dream each night; D F#7 G Gm7 You say you love me and you hold me tight, D F#7 Bm7 Gm7 But when I awake, you're out of sight -- Em7 A7 A7+5 D Fdim A7 Oh, darn that dream. D B7 Em7 Edim Darn your lips and darn your eyes -- D F#7 G Gm7 They lift me high above the moonlit skies. D F#7 Bm7 Gm7 Then I tumble out of par - a - dise. A7 A7+5 D Oh, darn that dream. Bridge: G Em7 Am7 A7 D7 Darn that one-track mind of mine; GM7 G/B Am7 D9 It can't understand that you don't care. G E C A Just to change the mood I'm in, D Cdim F7 A7 I'd welcome a nice, old nightmare. D B7 Em7 Edim Darn that dream, and bless it, too; D F#7 G Gm7 Without that dream, I never would have you. D F#7 Bm7 Gm7 But it haunts me and it won't come true -- G/B A7 A7+5 D Oh, darn that dream.
