Some Place Far Away Lyrics

My daddy brought home a photograph from the paper yesterday
It showed a line of wagons movin' some place far away
That picture made my daddy smile, it made my momma cry
Seems that daddy's wagon load of dreams had long since passed her by

Oh, the dream that makes the sparrow fly can make an eagle fall
And one that makes the rich man money, it ain't no dream at all
It's a cryin' shame to wake up just to find it's all been broke in two
Careful what you're dreamin' 'cause it some day may come true

He talked on all through supper time 'bout the good prospector's life
Couldn't see momma didn't wanna be no good prospector's wife
He said, "We best sell out and go before the weather turns too cold
And maybe buy ourselves an extra horse to carry all that gold"

Oh, the dream that makes the sparrow fly can make an eagle fall
And one that makes the rich man money, it ain't no dream at all
It's a cryin' shame to wake up just to find it's all been broke in two
Careful what you're dreamin' 'cause it some day may come true

I got up as soon as the first light came to start the mornin' fire
Wonderin' if my momma's will had cooled that man's desire
Inside the stove upon the coals, an ashen paper lay
It was a ghostly line of wagons movin' some place far away

And the dream that makes the sparrow fly can make an eagle fall
The one that makes the rich man money, it ain't no dream at all
It's a cryin' shame to wake up just to find it's all been broke in two
Careful what you're dreamin' 'cause it some day may come true
Oh, be careful what you're dreamin' 'cause it some day may come true
