The Oak Ridge Boys – Dream On Lyrics

My life on the road girl
Has always been hard on me and you
Every time we say goodbye
It gets harder to do
But when I’m far away somewhere alone
And the missing you starts
All I’ve got to do is picture you
And I can feel you in my heart

So dream of me
Every time you get to feelin’ blue
Dream of me
And I’ll be dreaming of you

I’ve been a lot of places
There’s just no place like home
And I’m always on my way back to you
Every minute that I’m gone
So when you get to feelin’ lonely
Just remember we won’t always be apart
Close your eyes and think of me
And you can feel me in your heart
