D     Db7              Bb   A
Stars shining bright above you
D     Db7              B          B7          
Night breezes seem to whisper I love you
G                    Gm 
Birds singing in the Sycamore tree
D              Bb    A  A7
Dream a little dream of me


D   Db7                Bb   A
Say nightie-night and kiss me
D    Db7                B              B7          
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
G                   Gm 
While I'm alone and blue as can be
D              Bb    A  D     Gb7
Dream a little dream of me
    

B     Abm        Dbm       Gb        B     Abm          Dbm   Gb 
Stars fading but I linger on dear, still craving your kiss
B   Abm        Dbm          Gb          B    Abm    Bb    A             
I'm longing to linger till dawn dear, just saying this


D     Db7                   Bb   A
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
D     Db7                    B           B7          
Sweet dreams that leave all worries far behind you
G                  Gm 
But in your dreams whatever they be
D              Bb    A   Bb    A   Bb    A  D     
Dream a little dream of, dream of, dream of me

I wish people would quit crediting this with the Mamas and the Papas, It was first recorded by Ozzie Nelson of all people and later by Ella Fitzgerald and Doris Day, nearly identical to the M&P version!

It was written by Fabian Andre, Wilbur Schwandt and George Kahn

Yeah but the version that’s used is from the mamas and the papas. No point referencing another artist when it won’t be played the same.

The 3rd chord is not Ab – it’s Ab7.

OK, technically Ab is not wrong – after all, Ab7 is an Ab chord with a 7th added to it, but that’s the problem you see, because you are adding the 7th (Gb) with your voice and it’s only a tone away from the root note (Ab) making for a bit of a dissonant clash, but stick that 7th in the actual uke chord to sing along to and all is sweetness.

That’s true of any song.

for anyone struggling with E: a way i play it is by setting up E7, but instead of holding down the c string, just mute it

I wanted to share how, using barred chords, this song can be played relatively effortless with just a little practice: C move down B7 move up Ab move down G |___|___|___|___| |___|___|___|___| |___|___|___|___| |___|___|___|___| |___|___|___|___| |===|==|==|===| |___|___|___|___| |===|==|==|===| |===|==|==|===| |___|_x_|___|___| |===|==|==|===| |___|___|_x_|___| |___|_x_|___|___| |___|___|___|___| |___|___|_x_|___| |_x_|___|___|___| |_x_|___|___|___| |___|___|___|___| |_x_|___|___|___| |___|___|___|___| You’ll figure it out from there. :) Basically, if you play all Ab, G and C that way, you need much less movement. I also play E7 instead of E, btw.

If Ab is too difficult u can use Cm and it sounds just as good

If you’re worried about the B7/can’t play barre chords, E7 (1202) is a perfect alternative!

I use the G shape moved up a fret and mute the the g string. Super easy, then, to slide to the G that immediately follows.

For b7 you can just bar the second fret and put your second finger on where it’s meant to be

This can be in the same key if you tune it down two half steps and put a capo on the 2nd fret
