My Elusive Dreams

My Elusive Dreams

Roger Miller

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 Alabama
Things look 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
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

Now we've left Alaska because there was no gold mine
This time only two of us moved on
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
