Ocean Of Dreams

Lyrics: Cliff Carnaham
Music: Cliff Carnaham

Played by Jerry Garcia with the Black Mountain Boys in March 1964. Thanks to Matt Schofield for the lyrics.

Some people drink champagne out under the stars
While others drink wine leaning over a bar
But all that I need dear to make me feel fine
Is to know that your love will forever be mine

I give an ocean of diamonds and a world filled with flowers
To hold you closely for just a few hours
Hear you whisper softly that you love me true
Will change all the dark clouds to the bluest of blue

I don't drink their champagne and I don't drink their wine
But if you refuse me my poor heart will pine
I'll be so lonely till the day that I die
And as long as I live dear you'll still hear me cry

I give an ocean of diamonds and a world filled with flowers
To hold you closely for just a few hours
Hear you whisper softly that you love me true
Will change all the dark clouds to the bluest of blue
