Dream Sweeper In Nashville (Larry W Jones 10/03/2017) (song #7234)

All roads lead to Nashville, from Little Rock or Birmingham
They come from Louisville and Atlanta for the sights and glam
It’s where guitars ring and cowboys sing about cowgirl dreams
And where a dream sweeper sweeps up the pieces in Nashville

I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee
When the sun comes up in Nashville, there’s only me
Cleaning up the streets of dreams that were not to be
I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee

Well, it’s a lonely place when the sun comes up in Nashville
Mournful looks on the faces of dreamers can bring a chill
A country boy comes looking for joy and the stage is key
But when the sun comes up I crank it up and sweep his dreams

I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee
When the sun comes up in Nashville, there’s only me
Cleaning up the streets of dreams that were not to be
I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee

(Instrumental)

I sweep up the songs of love that fall like a broken dove
They were just show on music row when fallen from above
Dreams were shattered and now are scattered around music town
Swept off the sidewalks and into the streets after sundown

I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee
When the sun comes up in Nashville, there’s only me
Cleaning up the streets of dreams that were not to be
I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee

Cleaning up the streets of dreams that were not to be
I drive a dream sweeper in Nashville Tennessee
