Hank Snow – Prisoner's Dream lyrics

Written by Karl Davis - Harty Taylor - Pat McAdory
Recorded by Hank Snow

Last night as I lay sleeping I dreamed a dream so fair
I dreamed about my darling a rose was in her hair
I dreamed I left this prison started in life anew
She told me that she loved me told me her love was true
It was only a dream just a prisoner's dream as I lay on my cold prison bed
My dreams of you can never come true dear girl I wish that I was dead
I dreamed she called me darling kissed me and held me tight
I dreamed that we were married dreamed of a starry night
I dreamed about our children playing around my knee
They loved me called me daddy they thought the world of me
It was only a dream...
I dreamed a dream so lovely heaven on earth it seemed
My wife and little children came to me in my dreams
They threw their arms around me I was their pride and joy
My little wife she loved me I was her darling boy
It was only a dream...
