Someplace Far Away

In the style of

Hal Ketchum

Lyrics

my daddy
brought home
a photograph
from the paper
yesterday

showed a line
of wagons movin'
someplace far away

that picture
made my daddy smile
it made my momma cry
seems like daddy's
wagon load of dreams
had long since
passed her by

but the dream
that makes
a sparrow fly
can make an eagle fall
one that makes
a rich man money
it ain't no dream at all

it's a cryin' shame
to wake up
just to find
it's all been
broke in two

careful
what you're dreamin'
'cause it someday
may come true

well he talked on
all through
suppertime
'bout the good
prospector's life

he couldn't see
momma didn't
want to be
no good
prospector's wife

he said we best
sell out and go
before the weather
turns too cold
and maybe
buy ourselves
an extra horse
to carry all that gold

but the dream
that makes
a sparrow fly
can make an eagle fall
and one that makes
a rich man money
it ain't no dream at all

it's a cryin' shame
to wake up
just to find
it's all been
broke in two

careful
what you're dreamin'
'cause it someday
may come true

i got up as soon as
the first light came
to start
the mornin' fire

wonderin'
if my momma's will
had cooled
that man's desire

and inside that stove
upon the coals
an ashen paper lay
it was a ghostly
line of wagons movin'
someplace far away

and the dream
that makes
a sparrow fly
can make an eagle fall
one that makes
a rich man money
it ain't no dream at all

it's a cryin' shame
to wake up
just to find
it's all been
broke in two

careful
what you're dreamin'
'cause it someday
may come true

oh be careful
what you're dreamin'
'cause it someday
may come true
