On The Wings of A Dream.
John Denver.
Album: It's About Time.

Intro: C Gmaj7 C Cmaj7 Am Em G D D7

      G           D/F#        G            Bm        D             G                    
Yesterday I had a dream about dying, about laying to rest and then flying,
        C         G            D                    G   D
How the moment at hand, is the only thing we really own.
      G         D/F#      G             Bm           D7          G           
And I lay in my bed and I wonder, after all has been said and is done for,
C                     G            D           G     
Why is it thus we are here, and so soon we are gone.

        C                                                    G
Is this life just a path, to the place that we all have come from,
         C                                             G
Does the heart know the way, And if not can it ever be found,
     C                                             G D C  Cmaj7 Am Cmaj7 G D
In a smile or a tear, or a prayer, or a sigh, or a s.o.ng.

       G     D/F#        G              Bm             D            G
And if so, I sing for my father, and in truth you must know I would rather,
        C          G              D                     G     D
He were here by my side, we could fly on the wings of a dream.
     G               D            G            Bm         D            G
To a place where the spirit could find us, and joy and surrender would bind us,
       C      G       D                       G    D
We are one anyway, anyway we are more than we seem.

          C                                                   G
There are those who will lead us, protect us each step of the way,
       C                                            G
From beginning to end, for each moment forever each day,
       C                                          G D C  Cmaj7 Am Cmaj7 G 
Such a gift has been given, it can never be taken a.w.ay.

Break: G D G Bm7 D G Cmaj7 Em D7 D6 G D6

           G       D/F#         G                  Bm      D          G
Though the body in passing must leave us, there is one who remains to receive us,
          C             G              D                       G    D
There are those in this life, are they friends from a heavenly home.
     G             D             G         Bm         D             G
So I listen to the voices inside me, for I know it is there just to guide me,
        C        G                D                G     
Will my faith proclaim that it is so, we are never alone,

         C                                                    G
From the life to the light, from the dark of the night to the dawn,
      C                                            G
He is so in my heart, he is here he could never be gone.
           C                                                 G D C  Cmaj7 Am Cmaj7 G
Though the singer is silent, there still is the truth of the s.o.ng,
G          D
In the song,

      G           D/F#        G            Bm        D             G
Yesterday I had a dream about dying, about laying to rest and then flying,
        C         G            D                    G  D
How the moment at hand, is the only thing we really own.
      G         D/F#      G             Bm           D                G
And I lay in my bed and I wonder, after all has been said and is done for,
C         G           D                        G    
Why is it thus we are here, and so soon we are gone,
   C         G           D                        G     
Oh why is it thus we are here, and so soon we are gone.
