I know it's not folk, but I have been asked to learn this song. I can find lyrics all over the place, but I am having trouble coming up with chords. Little help? Thanks.

I have an old Bb fakebook that gives some chords, but unfortunately doesn't have the lyric; so I can't tell how they fit together. For the Bb instruments, it's scored in F (one flat) so the C instruments (guitars and such) would be playing in G.

This is a "Combo-Orks book for small dance bands, published early 50s, and is probably something of a "swing band" arrangement.

If I've transposed right, the guitar part in C would be:

G |G Edim |
Give me a kiss to build a |dream on and my i-magi-|

D7 Ddim |D7 Ddim |
nation will thrive upon your |kiss |

D7 Ddim |D7 Am7 D7 |
Give me what You alone can|Give, a Kiss to build a |

G |
dream on |



Unfortunately, I don't remember enough of the rest of the lyrics to make much sense of the rest of it. Maybe this will be enough to get you started?

You'll find a version at The Guitar Guy's site - A Kiss To Build A Dream On". (I don't always agree with his chording for songs, but this seems OK).

Mick,

Thanks for that site. I agree, many chord transcriptions are way off, but often you get a place to start. Thanks again.

Yeah, Mick, thanks again for that site. The chord pattern he uses is a lot simpler than the ones I have in my sheet music and probably much more suited (with a few modifications) to the guitar. (He got the lyrics and authorship attribution right, too, which is not always the case with internet lyric sites.)

Of course, if you're Louis Armstrong, you don't need no steenking guitar chords! ;-D
