Intro

 [Dsus2]Dsus2 [D]D [G]G   

Verse 1

 [G]Well, I [D]dreamed I saw the knights in [G]armour coming,

 Sayin’ [D]something about a [G]queen.

 There where [D]peasants singin’ and [A]drummers drummin’ 

 And the [G]archer split the [A]tree.

 There was a [Bm]fanfare blowin’ [C]to the sun

 that was [G]floating on the [C]breeze.

 [D]Look at Mother Nature [A]on the run 

 In the [C]nineteen seven[G]ties.

 [D]Look at Mother Nature [A]on the run 

 In the [C]nineteen seven[G]ties.

[Verse 2] (same lyrics)

 I was lying in a burned out basement

 With a full moon in my eye

 I was hoping for replacement

 When the sun burst through the sky

 There was a band playing in my head

 And I felt like getting high

 I was thinking about what a friend had said

 I was hoping it was a lie

 Thinking about what friend had said

 I was hoping it was a lie

[Horn solo] (lasts one verse)

[Verse 3] (same lyrics)

 Well I dreamed I saw the silver spaceship flying

 In the yellow haze of the sun

 There were children crying and colours flying

 All around the chosen one

 All in a dream, all in a dream

 The loading had begun

 Flying mother nature’s silver seed

 To a new home in the sun

 Flying mother nature’s silver seed

 To a new home

 Intro: Dsus2 -> D
