Daydream Believer

Words & Music:

John Stewart


Another stellar '60s tab by Andrew Rogers!


             G               Am

Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings

        Bm              C

Of the bluebird as it sings.

     G           Em                A7     D7

The six-o-clock alarm would never ring.

        G           Am

But it rings and I rise.

          Bm               C

Wash the sleep out of my eyes.

     G      Em      C   D7        G

My shaving razor's cold and it stings.



  C        D     Bm

Cheer up sleepy Jean.

C         D      Em  C

Oh, what can it mean to a

 G          C          G    Em       A7    D7

Daydream believer and a homecoming queen?


You once thought of me

As a white knight on a steed.

Now, you know how happy

Life can be.

And our good times start and end

Without dollar one to spend.

But how much baby do we really need?
