Em7 A7 D F#7 Just a halfway down the street G G/F# Em7 Edim D B7 Em7 A7 Is where we used to meet to do our dreaming. D F#7 It was just a vacant lot, G G/F# Em7 Edim D B7 Em7 A7 G But what a lovely spot when stars were gleaming. G/F# Em7 A7 G There wasn't too much room there, Edim D6 D And roses weren't in bloom there, Bm F#7 Bm Cdim G G/F# Em7 Edim A But it still was mighty sweet just half - way down the street. Em7 D F#7 By a sign that said For Sale, G G/F# Em7 Edim D B7 Em7 A7 We wove a fairy tale but kept it quiet. D A7 We were dreaming of the day D9 A7 D7 D7/9 G We could step right up and say, "We'll buy it." G6 G/B E7/9 E7 Just by way of showing you that fairy tales come true, D6 F#m B7 We'll show you one that's all complete. A7 D F#m Bm If you'll visit us someday Bm7/E G G/F# Em7/9 A6/7/9 D In our cottage halfway down the street.
