Verse 1:

Gmaj7           Cmaj7     Gmaj7          Cmaj7
 Sing a song of sixpence, pocket full of rye,

 Hush-a bye, my baby; no need to be crying.

Bridge 1:

Bm                         A7              Am7         D
 You can burn the midnight oil with me, as long as you will.
Bm                A7            Am7    D+      (Gmaj7)
 Stare out at the moon upon the window-sill and dream...

Verse 2:

Gmaj7           Cmaj7     Gmaj7          Cmaj7
 Sing a song of sixpence, pocket full of rye,
Gmaj7           Cmaj7    Gmaj7      Cmaj7
 Hush-a bye, my baby; no need to be crying.

Bridge 2:

        Bm               A7           Am7              D
There's dew drops on the window-sill, gumdrops in your head.
Bm             A7                 Am7          D+      (Gmaj7)
 Slipping into dream land; you're nodding your head, so dream...

Verse 3:

Gmaj7              Cmaj7     Gmaj7          Cmaj7
 Dream of West Vir-ginia, or of the British Isles.
Gmaj7              Cmaj7                 Gmaj7     Cmaj7
 'Cos when you are dreaming, you see for miles and miles.

Bridge 3:

Bm                 A7        Am7            D
 When you are much older, re-member when we sat.
   Bm              A7              Am7             D
At midnight on the window-sill and had this little chat...

    Gmaj7  Cmaj7
And dream...

Come on and dream,
            Gmaj7  Cmaj7
Come on and dream.
    Gmaj7  Cmaj7
And dream...
    Gmaj7  Cmaj7
And dream...
            Gmaj7  Cmaj7
Come on and dream.
