Well now, I've gotta girl
A-sweet sixteen
Her mother wouldn't listen
To her dreams

I know she was a-dreamin'
She dreamed them old southern dreams
She was the dreamest girl
The dreamest girl I most ever seen

Now, she dreamed I was kissin' her
A-down by the mill
She'd dream that she'd taken me from
The girl on the hill

I know she was a dreamer, now
She dreamed them old southern dreams
She was the dreamest girl
The dreamest girl I most ever seen, yeah

(harmonica & instrumental)

Now she dreamin' I was kissin' her
Hold her close to my breast
She told that much a-dream, but
She wouldn't tell the rest

I know she was a dreamer, now
She dreamed them old southern dreams
She was the dreamest girl
The dreamest girl I most ever seen

Well, she know'd about lovin'
From huggin' on down
She was the dreamest girl
From miles around

I know she was a dreamer
She dreamed them old southern dreams, yeah
She was a dreamest girl
The dreamest girl I most ever seen

Well, she tried to tell her mother
A-what she did
She talked so much
She couldn't hardly l keep it hid

An I know she was a dearmer
She dreamed them old southern dreams
She was the dreamest girl
The dreamest girl I most ever seen.

(harmonica & instrumental to end)
