   D               G          A              D 
You followed me to Texas, you followed me to Utah
D                  G                A (repeat above rhythms)
We didn’t find it there so we moved on
D                        G
Then you went with me to Al-a-bam
A                    D
Things looked good in Birmingham
D                     G                 A
But we didn’t find it there so we moved on

                 D        G
   I know you're tired of fol-low-ing
A          D
My elusive dreams and schemes
G                D
For they're only fleeting things,
A          D(start intro here)
My elusive dreams 

Verse 2
You had my child in Memphis then I heard of work in Nashville
But we didn't find it there so we moved on
To a small farm in Nebraska, to a gold mine in Alaska
We didn't find it there so we moved on

Verse 3
Now we've left Alaska because there was no gold mine
But this time only two of us moved on
And now all we have is each other and a little memory 
To cling to and still you won't let me go on alone
