John O'Dreams Song Lyrics Guitar Chords, Written by Bill Caddick. Christy Moore and The Dublin City Ramblers recorded this  lovely song [The song is set to a tune by Tchaikovsky].

[G]When midnight comes and people[C] homeward [G]tread,
Seek out your blanket and your[C] feathered[G] bed,
Home comes the[D] rover,his journey's[G] over
Yield up the night time to old[C] John O[G]'Dreams
Yield up the night time to old[C] John O'[G]Dreams
[2]
Across the hill the sun has gone astray
Tomorrows cares are many dreams away
The stars are flying,your candle's dying
Yield up the night time to oldJohn O'Dreams
Yield up the night time to old John O'Dreams
[3]
Both man and master in the night are one
All things are equal when the day is done
The prince and the ploughman,the slave the free man
All find their comfort in old John O'Dreams
All find their comfort in old John O'Dreams
[4]
When sleep it comes the dreams come running clear
The hawks of morning cannot reach you here
Sleep is a river,flow on for ever
And for your boatman choose old John O'Dreams
Yes for your boatman choose old John O'Dreams

Declan Synott and myself rehearsed as I found my way back into the world of preformance after a lenghty lay-off. This fine song I learned from it's writer Bill Caddick in Wolverhampton in 1968. There are a few versions, Planxty played it on the B Side of Riverdance. It featured on a Christy Moore and friends album in 1980 but I've never recorded a good version yet. I include this rehearsal tape because it was a special time for me.Notes From The  Box Set Christy Moore.
