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 hever had
For a second I thought I was dead
Wake me up, son, wake me up! My my! Keep on don' it, keep on doin' it!
You might do somethin'... Don't that remind me of them old corn whiskey days...
Yes, it got soul, too.
It got soul too, all right... You had a lot of soul too,
when you left Alabama, then... Did you leave at night?
I know they're looking like hell for you through the day, you know...
I dream my mother-in-law got drownded (what a dream!), I dream she fell over in a creek
(I was glad of that too, man!)
Yes, I dream my mother-in-love got drownded, I dream she fell over in a creek
(I was a happy man, too, man, happy)
Yes, but when I woke up this morning, she was looking down on me as I sleep
(That dream couldn't be true)
