My Elusive Dreams
Bobbie Gentry & Glen Campbell 1970

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

I know you're tired of following    
My elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only fleeting things      
My elusive dreams


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

And now we've left Alaska because,   
there was no gold mine
But this time, only two of us move on.

And now all we have is each other.  
And  a little memory to cling to.

And still you won't let me go on alone.

I know you're tired of following
My elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only fleeting things
My elusive dreams

I know you're tired of following
My elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only fleeting things
My elusive dreams
