Intro: D  D     Bm  Bm     G  A

D              D                 Bm   Bm        
   I dreamed a dream in time gone by
G                G          
   When hope was high
               Em7     A    
And life worth living
D                 D               Bm7      Bm  
   I dreamed that love would never die
G                 G                Em7           A
   I dreamed that God would be forgiving
D              D               Bm           Bm  
   Then I was young and unafraid
G                  G                     Em7      A    
   And dreams were made and used and wasted
D               D            Bm7              Bm  
   There was no ransom to be paid
G             G              Em7              A 
   No song unsung, no wine untasted


B                         Em
   But the tigers come at night
B              B7             E           
   With their voices soft as thunder
A                          Dm
   As they tear your hope apart
A                               D   Em   Gbm   G   A           
   And they turn your dream to shame


D              D           Bm    Bm         
   He slept a summer by my side
G                G                Em7       A
   He filled my days with endless wonder
D              D               Bm7        Bm  
   He took my childhood in his stride
G             A          A      D    A   Am   B
   But he was gone when autumn came


E              E                   Dbm7        Dbm  
   And still I dream he'll come to me
A                A               Gbm7         B
   That we will live the years together
E                E                  Dbm7       Dbm  
   But there are dreams that cannot be
A                 A               Gbm7         B   E  E   
   And there are storms we cannot weather


Dbm7        Dbm                A    A            
   I had a dream my life would be
Gbm7            B                  E
   So different from this hell I'm living
             E                Dbm7            Dbm  
So different now from what it seemed
A               B                  E                 
   Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.

Outro: E     Dbm7   Dbm     A   B   E

I absolutely LURV THIS SONG!!! (I saw Les Miz with my dad and have been obsessed ever since…) It’s a little hard but once you get the hang of all the chords it’s pretty easy…

If ur on +1, then the last chord shouldn’t be E it should be an F :)

The easiest chords are at -2 but it won’t be in the key to sing along

AMAZING! When I played it, it reminds me of the sad life story of Fantine. Her song moved me to tears and my family was looking at me like “wtf why are u crying???” Lol

This is absolutely perfect, I went with some minimal finger picking instead of strumming and it was gorgeous

what kind of picking did you use?

If you want to sing it like Anne Hathaway did, the use +1.

The only thing I would change would be instead of Cm, use Gm

I love les mis and but this sounds a bit cheery on uke uke but it’s still great. The -2 chords are quite easy but a bit low?

This is perfect. But just an FYI, if you play for the original Broadway recording it should be on capo 1. Just so anyone knows :)
