I Had A Dream

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Lester Flatt: I used to be the toughest guy at Joe’s
I’d drink the liquor down and wore fancy clothes
I bet on the horses and I led a fancy life
Lester, June Carter, and Earl Scruggs: I took up with a woman and I left my loving wife
L, J, and E: I had a dream, boys and I can’t afford to have it again
An angel said to me, “Boy, L: your life is shot.”
And I went sailing through the air just like an astronaut
I saw Jacob and his angels, but it didn’t matter
She just sailed right on by with me trying to grab her
I saw the fiery furnace blowing wild with the wind
Someone L, J, and E: opened up the door and pushed me in
I had a dream, boys and I can’t afford to have it again
L: Now you won’t see me anymore at Joe’s
I’ve lived a life of sin and somehow goodness knows
A horse can run without me for the rest of his life
L, J, and E: I’m going home a begging for to see my loving wife
L, J, and E: I had a dream, boys and I can’t afford to have it again
L: I was laying on the order looking up at Abraham
When he said the fire and flames roll around
Moses parted the waters and I thought I was free
L, J, and E: But the Red, rough, Sea rolled over me
I had a dream, boys and I can’t afford to have it again
No, I can’t afford to have it again
