Spence Joseph - Great Dream From Heaven tab

Subject: TAB: Great Dream From Heaven (Joseph Spence)

keithr5165@aol.com (KeithR5165) posted Ry Cooder's lovely arrangement
of "Great Dream From Heaven."  I thought I'd follow up with the tab that
I have for the song, as well as the lyrics.

The song was written by Joseph Spence, the legendary guitarist from the
Bahamas.  Spence played gospel music with a unique style that bears
close study.

I got this tablature from my guitar teacher, John Lumsdaine.



                          GREAT DREAM FROM HEAVEN

                              (Joseph Spence)



D                      G           D
Had a great dream from heaven last night

                         G          A
The angels in heaven are calling me home

      D                G           D 
Thank God I can sing a song of his love

                        A        D
I know some day I'll be singing above



Chorus:

G        A         D
Glory to Jesus who saved us from sin

                    G          A 
Glory to Jesus, our freedom in him

      D                G           D
Thank God I can sing a song of his love

                        A        D
I know some day I'll be singing above



When mother and father forsake me, I know
The angels in heaven are calling me home
Thank God I can sing a song of his love
I know some day I'll be singing above
