Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
G  Gaug  Em  C  G  D  Em

G               Gaug
  Floating down      through the clouds
Em/G                    C
  Memories come rushing up to meet me now.
             G
But in the space between the heavens
         D                            C
And the corner of some foreign field,
          G    Em  C
I had a dream,
          G
I had a dream.

G              Gaug
  Goodbye Max,      goodbye Ma.
Em/G
  After the service when you're
 C
Walking slowly to the car
         G
And the silver in her hair
               D
Shines in the cold November air,
     Em
You hear the tolling bell,
     Cmaj7                    D/C C
and touch the silk in your lapel.

    G
And as the tear drops rise to meet
     D                   Em
The comfort of the band,
C                     D
  You take her frail hand...
                     G ->
And hold on to the dream.

Instrumental:
G  Gaug  Em  C  D  G
D  Em  D  C  D/C  G
D  C  G  Em  C  Em

G                 Gaug
 A place to stay,      enough to eat,
Em
 Somewhere old heroes shuffle
 C
Safely down the street.
                G
Where you can speak out loud
                       D
About your doubts and fears,
                  Em
And what's more, no-one ever disappears,
                                    Cmaj7
You never hear their standard issue
Kicking in your door.

G                  D
 You can relax on both sides of the tracks,
        Em
And maniacs don't blow holes
    C                      D/C
In bandsmen by remote control,
    G                             D
And everyone has recourse to the law,
     C                            G    Em
And no-one kills the children anymore.
C                                    G
  No-one kills the children anymore.

C              D            G         D         Em
  Night after night, going round and round my brain,
D       C        D           G
  His dream is driving me insane.

        G
In the corner of some foreign field,
     D
The gunner sleeps tonight.
Em                     C D/C
  What's done is done.
    G                                D
We cannot just write off his final scene.
C                    G    Em
  Take heed of his dream,
C           Em
  Take heed.
