Joan Baez - The dream song


(Written by Joan Baez and Ron Davies)

I had a dream I was following a barefoot girl

Beside a stream that flowed around the world

And we spoke of many things though her mouth never moved

As the most peculiar scenes were disappearing into view

Oh what a dream beyond the realm of why

Pretty little beings beneath the yawning sky

Speaking of God as though they could define

Music to the deaf and color to the blind or God to man

And then the leaves became a thousand tears

And I was on my knees in a crazy house of mirrors

I couldn't find my face but a voice was drawing nearer

Hush baby, sweet baby, hush don't you cry

And I thought I woke and my mother was standing there

And my heart broke as the ribbons in her hair

Turned into highways surrounded and swirled

Like a crown come down around a not so perfect world

In the corner of the dream was the man with the blue guitar

It had no strings but the music touched the stars

And his long dark curls turned to gold before my eyes

And the barefoot girl smiled off to the side and it was real

Then a thousand birds took flight with a joyful noise

And I heard the angels up on high rejoice

I could see my face and I recognized the voice

Hush baby, sweet baby, hush baby hush

It's just a dream, one of those that goes on and on

Scene after scene with the rhythm of a gypsy song

When I really woke I was frozen in between

I didn't know who I was, it was a dream inside a dream

It's all a dream

Oh what a dream

I had a dream

Not as well known as many of Joan's songs, but it deserves to be. 'Play Me Backwards' is a great album.
