Where the Dream Begins  Tom Russell






 


 Capo 2


 


 [(C)] [(F)] [(C)] [(G)] [(C)]  


 What happened to the kid in the (F)baseball (C)cap?


 Well he’s trying to get home but I (G)think he lost the (C)map


 What happened to the kid with the (F)braces on his (C)teeth?


 He had an autographed picture of Mu(G)hammad (C)Ali


 He’s just a (F)wise-assed, buck-toothed, (Bb)near-sighted fool (F)


 Always (C)staring at the girls in the (G)swimming (C)pool


 (F)Thirty years later and he’s (Bb)staring again (F)


 He’s (C)searching for the place where the (G)dreams be(C)gin


 Searching for the (Am)place where the dream be(Dm)gins


 


 Then he bought a bunch of records and he (F)heard a man (C)sing


 He said if I could write a song I be(G)lieve I’d be a (C)king


 But it took him twenty years un(F)til he got the (C)nerve


 He’s got boxes full of papers and (G)papers full of (C)words


 And the (F)words fly away like (Bb)swallows on the (F)wind


 But they (C)never flew back to the (G)nest a(C)gain


 Never took him to the (Am)place where the dream be(Dm)gins


 


 [(C)(F)(C)(G)(C)]  


 Then he finally got married and he (F)had two little (C)girls


 But he didn’t see ‘em much cause he (G)had to see the (C)world


 And the lie that he told ‘em is I’m (F)like most (C)men


 It’s always down the road that the (G)dream be(C)gins


 And the (F)girls grew up to be (Bb)pretty and wise (F)


 They said “you (C)could have seen the dream by (G)looking in our (C)eyes


 (F)You were always living in the (Bb)world of pretend (F)


 You kept (C)running away from (F)where the dream (C)begins


 Running a(Am)way from where the dream be(Dm)gins" (C)


 


 Now he’s living with a woman out on (F)Borderland (C)Road


 But her love’s turned bitter, and her (G)eyes turned (C)cold


 She said we came to the desert, let the (F)sickness (C)mend


 But Hell ain’t the place where the (G)dreams be(C)gin


 (F)Look out boys I’m (Bb)gaining on you (F)


 He’s old (C)Blind Joe Death in his (G)alligator (C)shoes


 He’s got a (F)pocket full of pills and a (Bb)pint of sloe gin (F)


 He’s gonna (C)show you to the place where the (G)dream be(C)gins


 Follow him (Am)down where the dream be(Dm)gins


 


 [(C)(F)(C)(G)(C)]  


 At the end of the road there ain’t (F)nothing but (C)fear


 Just a big old room with a (G)big old (C)mirror


 And the man in the mirror his (F)hair’s turning (C)gray


 And his hands begin to shake in a (G)funny kind of (C)way


 He’s knows (F)everything you bring for to (Bb)save you soul (F)


 (C)Everything denied will con(G)demn you to the (C)hole


 With his (F)hand on his heart he (Bb)picks up his pen (F)


 He goes (C)searching for the place where the (G)dream be(C)gins


 Looking for the (Am)place where the dream be(Dm)gins (C)


 


 What happened to the kid in the (F)baseball (C)cap?


 He’s trying to get home but I (G)think he’s lost the (C)map.
