 Roses float across the water

 And the ice is slowly melting next to you
  A                          G         D  A               G       D

 I've never seen two eyes so blue

 Laughing down by the water,    sweet dreams to you
 Went from Charlotte all the way to Savannah
 Laughing, your feet up on the dash
 Stumbled through the yellow lights of Toledo
 And the rain was falling fast
 Flew from Boston down to Tulsa, Oklahoma
 In a dream above the clouds, In a dream above the clouds

 Sweet dreams Melinda,    when summer days are through
 I'll think of you on those long lonely nights  Sweet dreams to you

 Bm      Bm/A       Bm/Ab
     And time after time,
     F#m   F#m/E         F#m/Eb

     And the water's so fine, sweet dreams Melinda

 Sweet dreams Melinda,    
 The summer days we knew,    laughing down by the water
 Sweet dreams to you
