Dream A Little Dream - ukulele chords

Originally a hit for Mama Cass and the Mamas and the Papas, this sweet song works wonderfully well on ukulele. It was also covered by Eddie Vedder on his recent Ukulele Songs album. Now you can give it a try!

"Dream a Little Dream" by The Mamas And The Papas

C B7 Ab G7
Stars shining bright above you
C B7 A7
Night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"
F Fm
Birds singing in a sycamore tree
C Ab G7
Dream a little dream of me

C B7 Ab G7
Say "Nightie-night" and kiss me
C B7. A7
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
F. Fm
While I'm alone and blue as can be
C Ab C
Dream a little dream of me

A. A6. E7
Stars fading but I linger on, dear
A A6. E7
Still craving your kiss
A. A6. E7
I 'm longing to linger till dawn, dear
A Ab G7
Just saying this:

C. B7. Ab. G7
Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
C. B7. A7
Sweet dreams that leave all worries far behind you
F Fm
But in your dreams whatever they be
C Ab. C
Dream a little dream of me

Thank you for the chords to a great tune.

I think he plays it in G. At least it appears so in the standard tunning.

I like the format.
I make a text document in my song folder. Very handy.
Should anyone care, the first recording was by Ozzie Nelson in February, 1931.

To print - select the text and when you print (Ctrl-P), check "selection only" if the option appears.

Actually it was first a hit in the 1920s for Jack Leon and his band. I have it on an old 78 rpm...but Mama Cass's version is far better :)
