INTRO: C F C F G VERSE: C F In the morning when I wake up and listen to the sound C F G Of the birds outside on the roof, C F I try to ignore what the paper says C F And I try not to read all the news C F And I hold you if you've had a bad dream C F G And I hope it never comes true C F 'cause you and I been through so many things together C F G And the sun starts climbin' the roof.... CHORUS: C It's a dream G Only a dream Fmaj7 G And it's fading now C Fadin' away G It's only a dream Fmaj7 Just a memory G C Without anywhere to stay C F C F VERSE: C F The Red River still flows through my hometown C F G Rollin' and tumblin' on its way C F Swirlin' around the old bridge pilings C F Where a boy fishes the mornin' away C F His bicycle leans on an oak tree C F G While the cars rumble over his head C F An airplane leaves a trail in an empty blue sky C F G And the young birds call out to be fed C It's a dream G Only a dream Fmaj7 G And it's fading now C Fadin' away G Only a dream Fmaj7 Just a memory G C Without anywhere to stay C F C F C F C F C F An old man walks along the sidewalk C F G With sunglasses and an old Stetson hat C F Fall winds blow the back of his overcoat away C F As he stops with a policeman to chat C F And a train rolls out of the station C F G That was really somethin' in its day C F Pickin' up speed on the straight prairie rails C F G As it carries the passengers away C It's gone G It's only a dream Fmaj7 G And it's fading now C Fadin' away G Only a dream Fmaj7 Just a memory G C Without anywhere to stay C F C F C It's a dream G Only a dream Fmaj7 G And it's fading now C Fadin' away G It's only a dream Fmaj7 Just a memory G C Without anywhere to stay
