D                   G                            Bm
I was a little girl alone in my little world who dreamed of a little
home for me
D                                       G
I played pretend between the trees, and fed my house guests bark and leaves
    Bm                          G
and laughed in my pretty bed of green
Chorus: I had a dream
         Gbm               G                      D             G
That I could fly from the highest swing, I had a dream

Chorus -x2-:
D                              G                              Bm
Long walks in the dark through woods grown behind the park, I ask God
who I'm supposed to be
    D                            G                             Bm
The stars smiled down on me, God answered in silent reverie. I said a prayer
and fell asleep

Interlude -x3-:
    D A Bm G

D                               G                             Bm
Now I'm old and feeling grey. I don't know what's left to say about this life
               G      D                                    G
I'm willing to leave. I lived it full and I lived it well. There's many

tales I've lived to tell.
   Bm             G              Bm
I'm ready now, I'm ready now, I'm ready now.
   D   A        G
To fly from the highest wing
I had a dream
