Nancy: I followed you to Texas, I followed you to Utah
Lee: We didn't find it there so we moved on
Nancy: I followed you to Alabam', things looked good in Birmingham
Lee: We didn't find it there so we moved on
BOTH: I know you're tired of following
My elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only fleeting things
My elusive dreams

Nancy: I had your child in Memphis, you heard of work in Nashville
Lee: We didn't find it there so we moved on
Lee: To a small farm in Nebraska, to a gold mine in Alaska
Nancy: We couldn't find it there so we moved on
Lee: And now we've left Alaska because there was no gold mine
Nancy: (SPOKEN) But this time, only two of us move on. And now now we have
Each other. And a little memory to cling to.
Lee: And still you won't let me go on alone.
BOTH: 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
