You followed me to Texas, you followed me to Utah
Then you went with me to A-la-bam'
We didn't find it there so we moved on
My elusive dreams and schemes
My elusive dreams
You had my child in Memphis then I heard of work in Nashville
To a small farm in Nebraska, to a gold mine in Alaska
I know you're tired of fol-low-in'
For they're only fleeting things

But this time only two of us moved on
To cling to and still you won't let me go on alone
My elusive dreams and schemes
My elusive dreams
