Dream Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

Last night I dreamed that you and I were in awful storm
With no place to go for shelter anywhere
And it took a while to analyze the reason for the dream
Now the meaning of it all is coming clear

The storm was all the trouble we've been having
No shelter was the answer we can't find
And the screaming of the raging wind that chilled me to the bone
Must have been the weary on my mind

When today you called to tell me it was over
Lord, I knelt when the phone began to ring
Yeah, it took a while to understand the reason of it all
But now I know the meaning of the dream

Yeah, the storm was all the trouble we've been having
No shelter was the answer we can't find
The screaming of the howling wind that chilled me to the bone
Must have been the weary on my mind
