C                            Dm
Beautiful dreamer wake unto me
G7                                           C
Starlight and dewdrops are awaiting thee
Sounds of the rude world heard in the day
G7                                   C
Lulled by the moonlight have all passed away

G7                            C
Beautiful dreamer queen of my song
Am            D7                    G7
List while I woo thee with soft melody
C                                    Dm
Gone are the cares of life's busy throng
G7                             C
Beautiful dreamer awake unto me
F               C            G7               C
Beautiful dreamer awake unto me

Beautiful Dreamer out on the sea
G7                                          C
Mermaids are chanting the wild Lorelei
Over the streamlet vapors are borne
G7                                C
Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn

G7                           C
Beautiful Dreamer beam on my heart
Am                D7                G7
Even as the morn on the streamlet and sea
C                                  Dm
Then will all clouds of sorrow depart
G7                              C
Beautiful Dreamer awake unto me
F              C                G7             C
Beautiful Dreamer awake unto me
