Johnny Cash – You Dreamer You lyrics

You dreamer you

Well, I dreamed, I walked in a field of flowers
Oh, what a dream
The houses all were silver towers
Oh, what a dream

Beside the road an angel sat
I said hello and tipped my hat
And stopped when I saw her smile
And set me down a while, I set me down a while

You dreamer you

Well, I tried the angel for a kiss
Oh, what a dream
But she turned away and my lips missed
Oh, what a dream

She said, "Sir, I'll have you know
I met you just a while ago
You're welcome for to sit
But calm yourself a bit, sir, calm yourself a bit"

You dreamer you
You dreamer you

I fell in love like one, two, three
Oh, what a dream
I asked the angel to marry me
Oh, what a dream

She said, "Sir, I can't marry you
But I'm a dream that can come true
There are dreams of much my worth
That live upon the earth, sir, live upon the earth"

You dreamer you
You dreamer you

Then I awoke and found my love
Oh, what a dream
As heavenly as the one above
Oh, what a dream

We'll marry in a sea of flowers
Home will be a silver tower
There'll be heaven in my life
With an angel for a wife, with an angel for a wife

You dreamer you
