    Lyrics

    I followed you to Texas
    I followed you to Utah
    We didn't find it there, so we mo-oved on
    I followed you to Alabam'
    Things looked good in Birmingham
    We didn't find it there, so we moved on

    I know you're tired of followin'
    My elusive dreams and schemes
    For they're only fleeting things
    My elusive dreams

    I had your child in Memphis
    You heard of work in Nashville
    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

    And now we've left Alaska
    Because there was no gold mine
    But this time, only two of us move 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 followin'
    My elusive dreams and schemes
    For they're only fleeting things
    My elusive dreams
    (Ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh)
    For they're only fleeting things
    My elusive dreams
