FOLLOW THAT DREAM

Original Elvis Presley version


(Follow that dream, I gotta follow)
(Keep moving, move along, keep moving)
I've got to follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
I've got to follow that dream to find the love I need

When your heart gets restless, time to move along
When your heart gets weary, time to sing a song
But when a dream is calling you
There's just one thing that you can do

Well you gotta follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
You gotta follow that dream to find the love you need
(Keep moving, move along, keep moving)

Got to find me someone whose heart is free
Someone to look for my dream with me
And when I find her, I may find out
Just what my dreams are all about

I've got to follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
I've got to follow that dream to find the love I need
I've got to follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
I've got to follow that dream to find the love I need
(Keep moving, move along)
(Keep moving, move along)
(Keep moving, move along)
(Keep moving...) [fade out]
