Submit Corrections Cancel

[HER] I followed you to Texas I followed you to Utah.
[HIM] We didn't find it there so we moved on.
[HER] I followed you to Alabam things look good in Birmingham.
[HIM] We didn't find it there so we moved on.

[Both - HIM:melody; HER:harmony]
I know you're tired of following my elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only fleeting things my elusive dreams.

[HER] I had your child in Memphis you heard of work in Nashville.
[HIM] We didn't find it there so we moved on to a small farm in Nebraska to a gold mine in Alaska.
[HER] We didn't find it there so we moved on.
[HIM] Now we've left Alaska because there was no gold mine.
[HER](speaking)But this time only two of us moved on.
And now all we have is each other and a little memory that we could to cling to.
[HIM](speaking)But still you won't let me go on alone.

[Both - HIM:melody; HER:harmony]
I know you're tired of following my elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only fleeting things my elusive dreams
For they're only fleeting things my elusive dreams
[End]
