INTRO: D(addE) D G (x2) G D G Well, I dreamed I saw the knights in armor coming, D G Sayin' something about a queen. D A There where peasants singin' and drummers drummin' G A And the archer split the tree. Bm C There was a fanfare blowin' to the sun G C that was floating on the breeze. D A Look at Mother Nature on the run C G In the nineteen seventies. D A Look at Mother Nature on the run C G In the nineteen seventies. I was lying in a burned out basement With a full moon in my eye I was hoping for replacement When the sun burst through the sky There was a band playing in my head And I felt like getting high I was thinking about what a friend had said I was hoping it was a lie Thinking about what friend had said I was hoping it was a lie Horn solo (lasts one verse) Well I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flyin' In the yellow haze of the sun There were children crying and colors flyin' All around the chosen ones All in a dream, all in a dream The loading had begun Flying mother nature's silver seed To a new home in the sun Flying mother nature's silver seed To a new home
