Music and Lyrics by Stephen Foster

VERSE 1

Eb                 Fm 
Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me,

Bb7                                    Eb 
Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee;

                         Fm 
Sounds of the rude world heard in the day,

Bb7                                       Eb 
Lulled by the moonlight, have all passed away!

Bb7                Eb 
Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song,

F7                         Bb 
List while I woo thee with soft melody;

Eb                    Fm 
Gone are the cares of life's busy throng,

Bb7                           Eb 
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

Ab        Eb        Bb7       Eb 
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me. 

  
VERSE 2

Eb                 Fm 
Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea 

Bb7                                Eb 
Mermaids are chanting the wild lorelei;

                   Fm 
Over the streamlet vapors are borne,

Bb7                                  Eb 
Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn.

Bb7                Eb 
Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart,

F7                      Bb 
E'en as the morn on the streamlet and sea;

Eb                      Fm 
Then will all clouds of sorrow depart,

Bb7                           Eb 
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

Ab        Eb        Bb7       Eb 
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me.
