AMG/All Music Guide lists a song called "Catalog Dreams" written by Joni Harms and Jim Varsos. (Too similar to be a coincidence, no?) It appears on Joni's album "Cowgirl Dreams", 1998; and it is performed by her on the various-artists collection "Tennessee Mountain Home: 23 Bluegrass Gems", 2002.

You can hear a sound sample at Yahoo! Shopping - Music, from which I transcribed this:

"And it came from Sears and Roebuck, a thousand pages long
Ev'rything from A to Z anyone could ever want.
Puttin' 'way a little extra ain't as easy as it seems
So way out here livin' catalog dreams.

Dad came in from workin'..."

I couldn't find any more lyrics.

Finally, complete lyrics, thanks to Spotify.


CATALOG DREAMS
Written by Joni Harms and Jim Varsos
As sung by Joni Harms on "Cowgirl Dreams" (1998)

1. She could see herself a-sewin' on that brand-new machine
As she took the time to look through that mail-order magazine.
It would sure make her life easier with all she has to do,
But fam'ly needs come first; she'll have to wait a year or two.

CHORUS: And it came from Sears an' Roebuck, a thousand pages long,
Ev'rything from A to Z anyone could ever want.
Puttin' away a little extra ain't as easy as it seems,
So way out here we dream catalog dreams.

2. Dad came in from workin', tired as a dog,
Sat down by the fire, an' picked up that catalog.
His eyes fell on the tractor with the mowin' arm an' rake,
But he knew that kind o' money was more than he could ever make. CHORUS

3. When supper time was over, Daddy turned to me an' said:
"You want to do a little dreamin', take that catalog to bed."
Up there in the quiet, layin' all alone,
I stumbled on a page, started a dream all of my own.

LAST CHORUS: 'Cause if I could learn to play on that Silvertone guitar,
Maybe make a record, an' one day be a star,
Daddy'd have his tractor, an' Mom her new machine.
I'd buy 'em all of their catalog dreams.
I'm gonna buy 'em all of their catalog dreams.


[Also sung by Lisa McHugh on "Old Fashioned Girl" (2010).]
