Now if I could only start over and have a new life to begin
Oh I wouldn't live like a rover and drift like a leaf in the wind
Cause I'm dreaming tonight of old sweethearts and believe me I've had quite a few
But I never dreamed of old sweethearts the way that I dream about you
[ fiddle - el. Banjo ]
Yes I let you slip through my fingers while foolishly searching around
But if I could only start over I know you could settle me down
Cause I'm dreaming tonight...
But I never dreamed of old sweethearts the way that I dream about you
