Tom Jones My Elusive Dreams Lyrics


You followed me to Texas, you followed me to Utah,

We didn’t find it there so we moved on.

Then you went with me to A-la-bam’,

Things looked good in Birmingham,

We didn’t find it there so we moved on.

I know you’re tired of fol-low-ing

My elusive dreams and schemes

For they’re only fleeting things,

My elusive dreams.

You had my child in Memphis then I heard of work in Nashville,

But 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.

I know you’re tired of fol-low-ing

My elusive dreams and schemes

For they’re only fleeting things,

My elusive dreams.

Now we’ve left A-las-ka because thewas no gold mine,

But this time only two of us moved 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.
