I Dreamed of My Old Lover  Elvis Costello

I suspect that these chords are correct, but, as always, you may think differently and
to tweak it here or there. I hope I've at least provided you with some sort of starting
with which to begin. Thanks! Enjoy!
"I Dreamed Of My Old Lover" by Elvis Costello, from the album "Secret, Profane, and
(Lyrics are taken from, Costello's official website.)
[C]I dreamed of [G]my old [F]lover las[C]t night
I [F]wonder [Am]if I [Dm]spoke out [C]loud
[G]If by[Dm] chance my [F]husband[Am] overheard
He'd [F]put my [Am]face back [Dm]in the [C]crowd
[C]His eyes were [G]clear and [F]gentle t[C]hen
He'd[F] kiss the [Am]worries [Dm]from my [C]brow
I [G]long to[Dm] fall to [F]sleep [Am]again
A[F]nd I wonder [Am]how he w[Dm]ould look [C]now
[C]Would our kids [G]grow stubborn o[F]r grow [C]strong
Would[F] their limbs b[Am]ronze insult [Dm]to the s[C]un
[G]I wonder [Dm]how it [F]feels but [Am]then
I[F] rarely [Am]dream of[Dm] anyon[C]e
In the[E] songs of [Am]shame and [G]tales of[C] dread
Where the[F]y seal the[Am] lovers [Dm]lips with [C]lead
An[E]d all th[Am]e vines wind [G]through their [C]eyes
[F]But no one knows this passion now
[Dm]No one knows this passion now
[C]So I keep thi[G]s fancy[F] to m[C]yself
I [F]keep my l[Am]ipstick [Dm]twisted t[C]ight
[G]I l[Dm]ong to fall to [F]sleep [Am]again
'Cos I[F] dreamed of [Am]my old[Dm] lover l[C]ast night
