George Jones – My Elusive Dreams lyrics

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

Chorus: (Both)
I know you're tired of followin'
My elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only fleeting things
My elusive dreams

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

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

Chorus: (Both):
I know you're tired of followin'
My elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only a fleeting thing
My elusive dreams

For they're only a fleeting thing, my elusive dreams...
