Big Dreams And High Hopes Lyrics

by Jack Ingram

When I was young I'd sit outside
All night long and watch the lights
Of the big trucks on the highway rollin' on
I wished that I was in a car, drivin' fast, drivin' far
And at seventeen that's exactly what I'd done

And to this day I don't know why I'm restless
I guess some hearts are simply born to run

Big dreams, high hopes
They've led me through the hard times
Like a north star shinin', showin' me where to go
They're what got this whole thing started
They're what keep this cowboy ridin' down the road
Big dreams, high hopes

I'm older and a little wiser now
A wide eyed boy who set out to change the world
Is gone but not forgotten
I still chase lights and wish on stars
That's what got that boy this far
And still feels good, there ain't no point in stoppin'

But even though I hardly ever catch 'em
God, don't it just feel good to try?

Big dreams, high hopes
They've led me through the hard times
Like a north star shinin', showin' me where to go
They're what got this whole thing started
They're what keep this cowboy ridin' down the road
Big dreams, high hopes

We're all out here tryin' to be happy
To be happy all you really need is

Big dreams, high hopes
They've led me through the hard times
Like a north star shinin', showin' me where to go
They're what got this whole thing started
They're what keep this cowboy ridin' down the road
Big dreams and high hopes, big dreams, high hopes
