I suppose this isn't the song you were thinking of (in this thread), but it made me think of Dave Mallett's "Summer of My Dreams." Kathy Mattea had a bit of a hit with it, and I heard Jean Redpath do a wonderful performance of the song on Prairie Home Companion.

SUMMER OF MY DREAMS
(David Mallett)

In the shade of this old tree
In the summer of my dreams
By the tall grass, by the wild rose
Where the trees dance as the wind blows

As the days go, oh, so slowly
As the sun shines, oh, so holy
On the good and gracious green
In the summer of my dreams

By the banks of this old stream
In the summer of my dreams
By the deep pool where the fish wait
For the old fool with the wrong bait

There's a field of purple clover
There's a small cloud passing over
And then the rain comes washing clean
On the summer of my dreams

See the raindrops on the grass now
Just like diamonds lying there
By the old road where I pass now
There's a twilight in the air

And as the sun sets down before me
I see my true love waiting for me
Standing by the back porch screen
In the summer of my dreams

In the shade of this old tree
In the summer of my dreams
By the tall grass, by the wild rose
Where the trees dance as the beans grow

As the days go, oh, so slowly
As the sun shines, oh, so holy
On the good and gracious green
On the summer of my dreams ^^

The Summer of My Dreams

In the shade of this old tree
Ind the summer of my dreams
By the tall grass, by the wild rose
Where the trees dance, and the wind blows
As the days go oh-so-slowly
As the sun shines oh-so-holy
On the good and gracious green
In the summer of my dreams

By the banks of this old stream
In the summer of my dreams
By the deep pool, where the fish wait
For the old fool with the wrong bait
There's a field of purple clover
There's a small cloud passing over
And then the rain comes washing clean
In the summer of my dreams

See the raindrops on the grass now
Just like diamonds lying there
By the old road where I pass now
There's a twilight in the air...
And as the sun sets down before me
I see my true love waiting for me
Standing by the back porch screen
In the summer of my dreams

In the shade of this old tree
Ind the summer of my dreams
By the tall grass, by the wild rose
Where the trees dance, and the beans grow
As the days go oh-so-slowly
As the sun shines oh-so-holy
On the good and gracious green
In the summer of my dreams
In the summer of my dreams


God I love this song!

Do you understand the chord number system given above? For example XOO232 = don't play 6th string ( X indicates this), play 5th and 4th strings open (0 represent an open string), hold 3rd string down at second fret, hold second string down at third fret, and, finally, hold first string down at second fret. And, of course, this is a D major chord. The song contain mainly D,G and A chords, and there variants, plus a Bmin chord where the lyrics " where the tall grass" appears

The Summer of My Dreams
In the D shade of this old G tree
In A7 the summer of my D dreams
By the Bm tall grass, by the A wild rose
Where G the trees dance, and the A7 wind blows
As D the days go oh-so-G-A7 slowly
As A7 the sun shines oh-so-D holy
On the D good and gracious G green
In the D summer A7 of my D dreams

By the banks of this old stream
In the summer of my dreams

There's a field of purple clover
There's a small cloud passing over

In the summer of my dreams

See the F# raindrops on the Bm grass now
Just like F# diamonds lying Bm there
By the E old road where I A pass now
There's a E twilight in the A A7air...
And as D the sun sets down A7 before me
I see my A7 true love waiting for D me
Standing by D the back porch G screen
