    What happened to the kid in the baseball cap?
    Well he's trying to get home but I 'think he lost the 'map
    What happened to the kid with the 'braces on his 'teeth?
    He had an autographed picture of Muhammad Ali
    He's just a wise-assed, buck-toothed, near-sighted fool
    Always 'staring at the girls in the 'swimming 'pool
    Thirty years later and he's 'staring again
    He's searching for the place where the 'dreams begin
    Searching for the place where the dream begins

    Then he bought a bunch of records and he 'heard a man sing
    He said if I could write a song I believe I'd be a king
    But it took him twenty years until he got the nerve
    He's got boxes full of papers and 'papers full of words
    And the words fly away like 'swallows on the 'wind
    But they 'never flew back to the 'nest a'gain
    Never took him to the place where the dream be(Dm)gins

    Then he finally got married and he 'had two little 'girls
    But he didn't see 'em much cause he 'had to see the 'world
    And the lie that he told 'em is I'm 'like most 'men
    It's always down the road that the 'dream begins
    And the girls grew up to be 'pretty and wise
    They said "you could have seen the dream by looking in our 'eyes
    'You were always living in the 'world of pretend
    You kept running away from 'where the dream begins
    Running away from where the dream begins"

    Now he's living with a woman out on 'Borderland 'Road
    But her love's turned bitter, and her 'eyes turned 'cold
    She said we came to the desert, let the 'sickness 'mend
    But Hell ain't the place where the dreams be'gin
    'Look out boys I'm gaining on you
    He's old Blind Joe Death in his alligator shoes
    He's got a 'pocket full of pills and a 'pint of sloe gin
    He's gonna 'show you to the place where the 'dream be'gins
    Follow him down where the dream begins

    At the end of the road there ain't nothing but fear
    Just a big old room with a 'big old 'mirror
    And the man in the mirror his 'hair's turning gray
    And his hands begin to shake in a funny kind of way
    He's knows everything you bring for to save you soul
    Everything denied will condemn you to the 'hole
    With his hand on his heart he 'picks up his pen
    He goes searching for the place where the dream be'gins
    Looking for the place where the dream begins

    What happened to the kid in the baseball cap?
    He's trying to get home but I think he's lost the map.
