The Electric Prunes

The Electric Prunes
Too Much To Dream (Guitar chord)

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:

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

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

Chorus:

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]

Coda:

(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]
