I Had A Dream
Champion Of The Blues, 3 minutes
- I Had A Dream
Champion Jack Dupree
Man, you know one thing I always dream...
And that's the one thing in the world for a hard workin' man to do,
Yeah, you better see Sigmund Freud.
Yeah, you know, that's bad, you know
For you don't never
Dream nothin' nice.
I don't know what you dream, but I know
When I go to bed I dream about old wagon wheels, old boxcars,
Old broken down flat-clad chihuahua's .
I ain't never dreamed
Nothin' about a pretty woman or a woman walkin' around nude or
Something like that, I can't get them dreams together you know.
Too hard a work, you know.
Not a hard-working man's dream.
No, no, no.
I had a dream, and what a dream was on my mind. (My, my)
I had a dream, a dream was on my mind
Lord I said to myself, how could a hard working man dream all the time?
Well I dream my wife had ten babies, and every one of them looked like me
(What?) Yes, man! (A sinful world!)
Yes, I dream my wife had ten babies, and every one of them looked like me
I know they was mine, man, I know that (In the dream you mean!)
But when I woke up this morning, not a baby did I see
Well I dream I got married, I got married to a millionaire
Boy I was in the money, wasn't I? (A millionairess!)
Yes I dream I got married, I got married to a millionaire
She took me down to the bank (uh-uh), she said, Jack Dupree, all your money's in there!
But I turned over in my bed and I grabbed my pillow and put it over my head
Yes, I turned over in my bed, grabbed my pillow and put it over my head
Because that was the worst dream I never had
For a second I thought I was dead
Wake me up, s
