"Polkadots and Moonbeams" by Johnny Burke and Jimmy van Heusen
[F]A country [Dm7]dance was being [Gm7]held in a [C7]garden
[F]I felt a [Dm7]bump and heard an [Em7-5]"Oh, beg your [A7]pardon"
[Dm]Suddenly I [Bbm]saw [F]polka dots and [Am7]moon[Abm7]beams
[Gm7]All around a [C7]pug-nosed [F]dream [C7-2nd]
[F]The music [Dm7]started and was [Gm7]I the per[C7]plexed one
[F]I held my [Dm7]breath and said "May [Em7-5]I have the [A7]next one?"
[Dm]In my frightened [Bbm]arms [F]polka dots and [Am7]moon[Abm7]beams
[Gm7]Sparkled on a [C7]pug-nosed [F]dream [E7]
There were [A]questions[A#dim] in the [Bm7]eyes of other [E7]dancers
[A]As we [F#m7]floated over the [Bm7]floor [E7]
There were [A]questions [A#dim]but my [Bm7]heart knew all the [E7]answers
[A7]And [D7]perhaps [Gm7] a few things [C7]more
[F]Now in a [Dm7]cottage made of [Gm7]lilacs and [C7]laughter
[F]I know the [Dm7]meaning of the [Em7-5]words "ever [A7]after"
[Dm]And I'll always [Bbm]see [F]polka dots and [Am7]moon[Abm7]beams
[Gm7]When I kiss my [C7]pug-nosed [F]dream
Nick Johnson recommends:
1) slow it down on the last line and at the word "dream" use 5657, then go to 4447 (with tremolo)
2) experiment with different chord positions to spice it up
