Song: 3/4 time - slowly.

7   -7  7  6   5   -4   4 -4 -6 
Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me,

6    -7   -6  -6   6    5  -5   5  -4    4
Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee;

 7     -7  7   6     5    -4    4  -4  -6  
Sounds of the rude world, heard in the day,

-7    -6  -6   6  -5    -5    5   -4    4  4 
Lull'd by the moonlight have all pass'd away!

6 -5 -4   -3  -6     6    6  5    4     
Beautiful dreamer, queen of my song,

7     -7   7 -6  -8     7   -7  7 -6 6 
List while I woo thee with soft melody;

7    -7   7    6   5   -4   4  -4   -6
Gone are the cares of life's busy throng,

-7 -6  -6  6   -5 -5   5 -4 4  4 
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

-6  -7  7  7    6  5  -5 5 -4  4
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!


Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea
Mermaids are chanting the wild lorelie;
Over the streamlet vapors are borne,
Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn.
Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart,
E'en as the morn on the streamlet and sea;
Then will all clouds of sorrow depart,
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!
Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!


*This ballad sounds great played
with a Bb/A# key (straight harp).
Or you could crossharp it in a Eb
key. But if you don't have those
keys, don't let that stop you. It
will sound fine in any key. 

*Words & Music By Stephen C. Foster
1825-1864 (Beautiful Dreamer was the
last song written by Stephen Foster
in 1862 and was published after his
death in 1864)
