  Song: Asleep On A Sunbeam


Tabbed by: Antoine Poliquin (polisson2@hotmail.com)

INTRO : D - D - A/D - G

D                                       A     Asus4  A
When the half light makes for a clearer view
Bm             G
Sleep a little more if you want to
    E                A         G         D
But restlessness has seized me now, it’s true
D                                       A     Asus4  A
I could watch the dreams flicker in your eyes
Bm          G
Lying here asleep on a sunbeam
  E             G                A
I wonder if you realize you fascinate me so

(solos over verse chords)

Think about a new destination
If you think you need inspiration
Roll out the map and mark it with a pin
I will follow every direction
Just lace up your shoes while I’m fetching a sleeping bag, a tent...

Another summer’s passing by
G             E           A                         F#          
All I need is somewhere I feel the grass beneath my feet
          G                  E
A walk on sand, a fire I can warm my hands
G                  D
My joy will be complete

(play INTRO chords again)
(solos over VERSE chords)

I thought about a new destination
I’m never short of new inspiration
Roll out the map and mark it with a gin
Made my plans to conquer the country
I’m waiting for you to get out of your situation
With your job and with your life

(play CHORUS again twice)
