Too Much To Dream Chords

Annette Tucker and Nancy Mantz wrote a bunch of punkadelic classics (unusual
for women in that era) including this #11 hit for the Electric Prunes.

Correction to earlier notes:  While some sources (including the original
_Nuggets_ liners) identify the band as being from Seattle, a source close
to the band has since informed me that they (along with the Strawberry
Alarm Clock) attended Taft H.S. in the San Fernando Valley near Los
Angeles.  An interview with singer Jim Lowe is scheduled for _Here 'Tis_
#8; hopefully that will clear up this matter once and for all.  -- AWR

Verse 1:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/electric_prunes/too_much_to_dream_crd.html ]
	Dm                               C
	   Last night your shadow fell upon my lonely room
	Dm                                 C
	   I touched your golden hair and tasted your perfume
	Gm                                     Dm
	   Your eyes were filled with love the way they used to be
	Gm                                  Dm         G [N.C.]
	   Your gentle hand reached out to comfort me

	Then came the dawn
	And you were gone
	          G     F     Eb [N.C.]
	You were gone, gone, gone


	Dm                     G
	   I had too much to dream last night
	Dm               G
	   Too much to dream
	Dm                   G
	   I'm not ready to face the light
	Dm                     A
	   I had too much to dream
	      Dm   C  Bb  C
	Last night
	      Dm   C  Bb  C
	Last night

Verse 2:

	The room was empty as I staggered from my bed
	I could not bear the image racing through my head
	You were so real that I could feel your eagerness
	And when you raised your lips for me to kiss

	Came the dawn
	And you were gone
	You were gone, gone, gone

[repeat chorus 2X]


	    (C)           D    C   Bb   C
	Oh, too much to dream
	Oh, too much to dream
	Too much to dream last night
	Oh, too much to dream [repeat to fade]

	[Note: the coda is in D major; listen to the rhythm guitar
	 (heavily-tremoloed part in right channel) to hear this]
