D - Dsus4 - D*2fr D D - Dsus4 - G/D D - A Em F#m G Asus4 - A There are those who can live with the things they don't believe in. Em F#m G Asus4 - A C - Cadd9 They are giving up their lives for something that is less than it can be. Em F#m G Asus4 - A Some have longed for a home in a place of inspiration, Em F#m G Asus4 - A C - Cadd9 Some will fill the emptiness inside by giving it all to the things that they believe, Asus4 - A They believe. A D Bm F#m Maybe it's just a dream in me, maybe it's just my style, G A D - Dsus4 - D*2fr Maybe it's just the freedom that I've found. A D Bm G But given the possibility of living up to the dream in me, Em A D - Dsus4 - D*2fr D D - Dsus4 - G/D D - A You know that I'll be reaching for higher ground.

I will stand on my own; I will live up to this vision.
I will trust in what I feel and follow my heart until it brings me home.
Bring me home.

Maybe it's just a dream in me, maybe it's just my style,
Maybe it's just the freedom that I've found.
But given the possibility of living up to the dream in me,
You know that I'll be reaching for higher ground.


Bb F Bb F Keep me through the night, lead me to the light, G D Bm Esus4 - E Teach me the magic of wonder, give me the spirit to fly, Asus4 - A Sprit to fly.

Maybe it's just a dream in me, maybe it's just my style,
Maybe it's just the freedom that I've found.
But given the possibility of living up to the dream in me,
You know that I'll be reaching for higher ground.

Maybe it's just a dream in me, maybe it's just my style,
Maybe it's just the freedom that I've found.
But given the possibility of living up to the dream in me,
You know that I'll be reaching for higher ground.

(Words and music by John Denver, Lee Holdridge and Joe Henry, 1988)

Notes: I don't think that the chords published on John Denver Anthology songbook is exactly what JD played. The above chords are based on the 1989 live recording.
