I Had a Dream - Don't Be Scared (1982), Frankenstein Love (1992)

 

 thanks to Matthew L

  

I had a dream about you

You were the queen of quite a few

And I was there, but you didn’t care

I didn’t matter somehow.

 

The band played and you sang a tune

And the stars fell down from the moon

And you smiled a smile that parted the sea

But you didn’t notice me

No.

 

Your eyes filled up the sky and they were blue

And you had a weird monkey there with you too

And you danced a jig and tipped his hat

And you turned around with a grin so fat

And he was me.

 

There were lights and fireworks and cannons going off in your honor

And I was worried,

But a man said “Don’t worry, nothing can harm her”

And I grabbed the microphone and I stood all alone

And I looked up at you, and you looked down at me

And then you said “Off with his head”.

 

I had a dream about you

 

I Had A Dream

 

The timing of the A7…D7.. section varies from verse to verse but the chords are the same.  I’ve included several chord options – I know some people have trouble barring (including the man himself!) so there are some easier alternatives.  Mix and match…

 

Chord suggestions:

 

Bbmaj7       X-1-3-2-3-1 (bar 1st)

                6-8-7-7-6-X  (either bar at 6th or grab the low string with

                                     thumb)

                X-8-7-7-6-X  (a little easier)

                X-X-3-2-3-1  (easier, no barring, but also no bass note)

 

Abmaj7      4-6-5-5-4-X (either bar at the 4th or grab the low string 

                                       with thumb)

                X-6-5-5-4-X  (a little easier)

                X-X-1-0-1-X  (really easy, just make sure you only play

                                      those 3 strings!)

 

A7            5-7-5-6-5-5 (bar 5th)  or  X-0-2-0-2-0

D7            X-5-7-5-7-5  (bar 5th)  or  X-X-0-2-1-2

G7            3-5-3-4-3-3  (bar 3rd)  or  3-2-0-0-0-1

C7            X-3-2-3-1-0

I had a dream about you

But you didn’t notice me…no.

Your eyes filled up the sky and they were blue

And you had a weird monkey there with you too

And you danced a jig and tipped his hat

And you turned around with a grin so fat

And he was me.

 

(in the next verse the A7-D7-G7-C7 progression repeats before going to Abmaj7)

 

There were lights and cameras and fireworks going off in your honor

And I was worried,

But a man said “Don’t worry, nothing can harm her”

And I grabbed the microphone and I stood all alone

And I looked up at you, and you looked down on me

And then you said “Off with his head”.

 

I had a dream about you
