My Elusive Dreams

Bobbie Gentry
I followed you to Texas
I followed you to Utah
We didn't find it there so we moved on
I went with you to Alabam'
Things looked good in Birmingham
We didn't find it there so we moved on

I know you're tired of following
My elusive dreams and schemes
Oh, they're only fleeting things
My elusive dreams

You had my child in Memphis
Then I heard of work in Nashville
We didn't find it there so we moved on
To a small farm in Nebraska
To a gold mine in Alaska
We didn't find it there so we moved on

And now we've left Alaska
Because there was no gold mine
But this time, only two of us move on
And now all we have is each other
And a little memory we cling to
And still you won't let me go on alone

I know you're tired of following
My elusive dreams and schemes
Oh, they're only pleading things
My elusive dreams

I know you're tired of following
My elusive dreams and schemes
Oh, they're only pleading things
My elusive dreams
