(Wise, Weisman) by Elvis Presley (RCA Victor EPA 4368), 1962

Follow that dream - 1983 studio version

One, two
If your heart is restless from waiting so long
If you're tired and weary and you can't go on
If a distant dream is callin' you
Then there's just one thing you can do
Follow that dream wherever it may lead
Come on follow that dream to find the love you need
Come on follow that dream

Now I've been searching for a heart that's free
Searching for someone, to search with me
I need a love, a love I can trust
Together we'll search for the things that come to us
In dreams wherever they may be
Come on follow that dream to find the love you need
Come on follow that dream
Oooh
Oooh
Oooh

Now every man has the right to live
The right to a chance, to give what he has to give
The right to fight for the things he believes
For the things that come to him in dreams
Yeah, follow that dream wherever it may lead
Come on follow that dream to find the love you need
Come on now follow that dream wherever it may lead
Come on now follow that dream to find the love you need
Come on follow that dream
Yeah, follow that dream
Yeah, come on and follow that dream
Come on and follow that dream
Come on and follow that dream to find the love you need
To find the love you need
To find the love you need


Follow that dream - 28-Apr-1981 version

Your heart is restless and you can't go on
When you're tired and weary and you can't go on
If a distant dream is callin' you
Then there's just one thing that you can do

Yeah, you gotta follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
You gotta follow that dream wherever that dream may lead

Now if I walk in dreams, and I talk in dreams
But I need someone with a love I can trust
And together we'll search for the things that come to us
In dreams, in dreams

Well I follow that dream wherever that dream may lead me
I gotta follow that dream to find the love I need

Now every man has the right to live
The right to a chance to give what he has to give
A right to fight for the things he believes
For the things that come to him in dreams

Baby in dreams, I walk in dreams
I talk in dreams, I live in dreams


Follow that dream - 7-May-1981 version

When your heart is restless, you can't go on

Yeah, you gotta follow that dream wherever that dream may lead you
You gotta follow that dream wherever that dream may lead

Now if I walk in dreams, and I talk baby in dreams

And together we'll search for the things that come to us
Baby in dreams, baby in dreams

Now every man has the right to live
The right to a chance to give what he has to give
The right to fight for the things he believes
For the things that come to him in dreams

Baby in dreams, I walk in dreams
