Dreams Shine Through

Taking Off

 
         



        (Intro: D  D/F#  G  A  D  D/F#  G  A)


        D              D/F#          G         D
        An old man lay dying beneath cold city skies 

        D  D/C#    D/B  D/A        E7       A
        An ominous look     in his derelict eyes

        D             D/F#      G          D 
        The moment of death for him had no sting 

        D   D/C#         D/B  D/A   E7       A    D
        His soul had the power   to grant him one thing 

        So he said 

              G                   D
             "Let my dreams shine through, 

             G                   D
             Let my dreams shine through." 

        D          *D/F#     G           D
        Passing nearby was a shiny black car 

        D      D/C#    D/B        D/A      
        In the front a chauffeur,  
 
        E7               A
        in the back a cigar 

        D               D/F#      G           D
        That lit up the face of a middle-aged man 

            D/C#            D/B  D/A   E7 A    D
        Who bought and sold stock like no body can, 

        And he said 

              G                   D
             "Let my dreams shine through,

             G                   D
             Let my dreams shine through." 


       
        (Instr: D  D/F#  G  A  D  D/F#  G  A)  


        D        D/F#            G                D
        Close by two young lovers were gettin' it on 

        D      D/C#       D/B   D/A   E7         A
        And of all the positions they knew every one 

        D                D/F#        G            D
        And after they'd tried every trick in the book 

        D  D/C#       D/B D/A     E7 A    D
        He lay on the bed  with a faraway look 


        Just thinking, 

              G                   D
             "Let my dreams shine through, 

             G                   D
             Let my dreams shine through."
 
        D       *D/F#     G          D
        Not far away was another big car 

        D    D/C#        D/B D/A     E7            A
        This time in the back  was a rock an' roll star

        D                     D/F#        G 
        And that night at the concert the fans all went

        D
        wild
 
        D     D/C#            D/B D/A  E7   A 
        As he strummed his guitar  and sang through his

        D
        smile 

        Singing, 

              G                   D
             "Let my dreams shine through, 

             G                   D
             Let my dreams shine through." 

        D                       *D/F#  G  
        Well, the fans went home happy, and so did the 

        D
        star 

        D   D/C#     D/B      D/A         E7
        Likewise the young lovers and the man in the

        A
        car 

        D          D/F#           G        D
        But as the old man turned over and died 

        D                                  E7
        For the moment all the others felt cold 

            A
        and empty
 
          D     G/D  D  G/D
        inside. 



	  NB:
	  D/F# sounds good with the F# on the bass E string (except where
       indicated "*", where F# on the D string sounds better).



          I have a dream, but I can't describe it here. Mmm...
