Colin Hay - Dream On tab

From the album Peaks and Valleys.

Standard tuning

I'll put the chords, mostly for a sense of timing as the riff thing is important.

E - 022100
Eadd9 - 022102 (may be wrong on the name)
E2 - X79997
Asus2 - X02200
C#m - X4665X
B - X2440X



Intro and verse: I think it uses something like these E chords, listen to the track to match it.

e|--2--0----7-----7------|
B|--0--0----9-9---9-9----|
G|--1--1----9-9---9-9----|
D|--2--2----9-9---9-9----|
A|--2--2-s -7-7-2s7-7----|
E|--0--0-----------------|


E/Eadd9                  E2
I don't mind it in the morning

E/Eadd9                  E2
I don't mind it late at night

E/Eadd9             E2
Make love on the weekend

E/Eadd9                 E2
Always makes me feel alright


The bridge riff thing goes:

e|--0--0--0---0-------0--0-0---0-0-0----------------|
B|--0--0--0---0-------0--0-0---0-0-0----------------|
G|--2--1--2-s-4-------2--1-2-s-4-2-1----------------|
D|--2--2--2---2-------2--2-2---2-2-2----------------|
A|--0--2--2---2-------0--2-2---2-2-2----------------|
E|-----0--0---0----------0-0---0-0-0----------------|

Asus2                    E
Doesn't matter about the weather

Asus2                E
It's always still fun

Asus2                        E
I like it when you wear you leather

        B
And its one on one


And the next bit uses variations of these patterns:

e|-----0--0---0---------0-0---0-0-0----------------|
B|-----0--0---0---------0-0---0-0-0----------------|
G|-----1--2-s-4---------1-2-s-4-2-1----------------|
D|-----2--2---2---------2-2---2-2-2----------------|
A|-----2--2---2---------2-2---2-2-2----------------|
E|-----0--0---0---------0-0---0-0-0----------------|

Don't stop what it is your doing


You know I love your little games


Don't stop what it is you're doing


Your Body's driving me insane


Back to using this one:

e|--2--0----7-----7------|
B|--0--0----9-9---9-9----|
G|--1--1----9-9---9-9----|
D|--2--2----9-9---9-9----|
A|--2--2-s -7-7-2s7-7----|
E|--0--0-----------------|

I don't mind it in the summer

Yeah underneath the sun

I don't mind if it's cold in winter

I can take it on the run



Then this one again:

e|--0--0--0---0-------0--0-0---0-0-0----------------|
B|--0--0--0---0-------0--0-0---0-0-0----------------|
G|--2--1--2-s-4-------2--1-2-s-4-2-1----------------|
D|--2--2--2---2-------2--2-2---2-2-2----------------|
A|--0--2--2---2-------0--2-2---2-2-2----------------|
E|-----0--0---0----------0-0---0-0-0----------------|

Let's stop at this hotel

Lets make some faces turn

Lets laugh until we're senseless

         B
And our bodies will burn



Chorus: Uses the same kind of variations on the E chord as the bridge.

C#m              B
Dream on in the night

Asus            E
Make me feel alright

C#m              B
Dream on in the night

      Asus      E
You're my woman



Thats the parts of the song, it won't make sense really if you haven't heard it
(probably won't if you have...), so listen to the song to get the feel of it.

Comments welcome.
