I Dreamed Of A Hillbilly Heaven

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

I dreamed I was there in hillbilly heaven
Oh, what a beautiful sight
I met all the stars in hillbilly heaven
Oh, what a star-studded night
Last night I dreamed I went up to hillbilly heaven and do you know who the doorman was?
It was the old Blue Yodeler, Jimmie Rodgers.
So I asked him to kind of show me around a bit and he was right pleased to.
He said, “Nita, I want you to meet a man who’s songs everybody knows and do you know who it was?
Mr. Country music himself, Fred Rose.
I dreamed I was there in hillbilly heaven
Oh, what a beautiful sight
Well, Jimmy took me around some more and sang some of his old songs for me.
I saw the gold guitars and gold fiddles hanging there in the hall of fame.
And then he said, “Nita, I want you to meet a boy who was loved by many many millions.”
And sure enough it was our old friend, Hank Williams.
I met all the stars in hillbilly heaven
Oh, what a star-studded night
Well, then I asked him who else he had booked in the next 100 years.
And he showed me the longest list of names I ever saw, so I started to read.
Ernest Tubb
Hank Snow
Roy Acuff
Marty Robbins
Chet Atkins
Eddie Arnold
Kitty Wells
Bob Wells
Anita Carter…Anita Carter!
Well, that’s when I woke up and I’m sorry that I did.
Cause I dreamed I was there in hillbilly heaven
Oh, what a beautiful sight
