Song facts: “Dream On” was Aerosmith’s first major hit. Steven Tyler has said that this is the only song on the first album where he used his “real voice”. He was self-conscious about his voice and tried to create a more soulful sound on the other tracks.

Harmonica type: diatonic

-6 -7   8   -7  6  -7  -6 -7  -6 6   
Every time that I look in the mirror
 -7   -7    8   -7  6   -7  -6 -7  -6  -6
All these lines on my face gettin’ clearer
 -7   6  -6   5   -8   8  -8 -7-6   6  -6  6 5
The past is gone, it went by like dusk to dawn
5  5   6   -6   -7  
Isn't that the way? 
8  8 8  8   -8    7    -7  -6  6   -6  -7
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay

8  -8  8 8 -8   -7   
I know nobody knows, 
 8    -8   8    -8   8    -8 -7-8 
Where it comes, and where it goes
8  -8  -8   8 -8 8 -8   -7
I know it's everybody's sin
 8  -8  -7  -6   6  -6   6  -6  5
You got to lose to learn how to win.

-7   -7   8    6   -7    -6  -7  -6 6
Half my life’s in books’ written pages,
 -7    -7    8      6    -7   -6  -7  -6 -6
Lived and learned from fools and from sages
 -6   6   -6    5    
You know it's true 
 -8   8  -8 7     7   -8   8 -8 7 
All  the things, come back to you, 
 8   -8   7   -8   -8  8   -8 7
Sing with me, sing for the year,
  8  -8   7   -8   7    -8  -8   8  -8 7
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
  8   -8  7  -8  7    -8  -8  8 -8 7
Sing with me if it's just for today
 8    8  8  8   7    7   8     7    7   7
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you 
7 -8 -7 6 
 Awa-ay.
