T: I had your child in Memphis
T: You heard of work in Nashville
D: We didn't find it there, so we moved on;
D: To a small farm in Nebraska
D: To a gold mine in Alaska
T: We didn't find it there, so we moved on.
D: And now we've left Alaska,
D: Because there was no gold mine.
T: But this time, only two of us moved on
T: Now all we have is each other
T: And a little memory to cling to.
D: And still you won't let me go on alone.
D: I know you're tired of followin'
D: My elusive dreams and schemes
D: For they're only fleeting things
D: My elusive dreams.
B: For they're only fleeting things, my elusive dreams.
