Subject: Info on 'Dreaming Man' -- I think
From: GUEST,ddw
Date: 05 Mar 00 - 05:53 PM

I've recently learned a great prison song, but I got it from a tape with no info on the singers or anything else and I'm hoping somebody will be able to help me out. I've searched DigiTrad and Cowpie without any luck.

I think the song is called "Dreaming Man" and the chorus goes like this:

These walls and bars can't hold a dreaming man
So I'll be home to tuck the babies in
They can chain my body, but not my mind
So I'll break out again tonight.

Any takers on this one?

Thanx

david

That was dumb. I had to hurry that post and forgot to put in what I'm looking for. I'd love to know who wrote it, who recorded it and any other info anyone knows about it.

Thanx again,

david

Well ddw....eventually found it!!

I'll Break Out Again Tonight
Slowly the long day turns to night
And soon they'll switch out the prison light
But in my cell I'm making plans
To be at home with you again

These walls and bars can't hold a dreamin' man
So I'll be home to tuck the babies in
They can chain my body but not my mind
So I'll break out again tonight

The warden thinks I'm in for life
But all he's ever seen me wear is stripes
He don't know about my suit and tie
That I wear when I'm with you each night

These walls and bars can't hold a dreamin' man
So I'll be home to tuck the babies in
They can chain my body but not my mind
So I'll break out again tonight


I'll Break Out Again Tonight 3:22
(Sanger D. Schafer/A.L Owens)
Acuff Rose Publications, Inc./Hill And Range Songs (BMI)
Recorded by Leo Kottke

Here's the site it came from....
Clicky

best wishes, Yvonne

Quincy, you're a marvel — thanks.

Leo Kottke''s picture leaves me wondering, though… The song sounds so much older, so I'm wondering where he got it. I don't recognize the authors' names, so I can't place them in a time frame. Any thoughts on that?

thanx again.

David, I've never heard of any of them but if it helps one of the authors wrote another song in 1973.

That's the way love goes

May the search continue!!
best wishes, Yvonne

Sorry those last two were me.

I learned the song from Danny Paisley's version on his Father Bob's album. Great powerful version slight variation in words e.g;
These Walls and Bars Can't old A Dream In
I'll Be Home Tonight to Tuck the Babies In

I have the album on my shelves. If you are still looking for details I will hunt it up.

Hoot

A few years back I was in a BG group called McCormick that used to sing this song. The lead singer would say, "Hey guys, let's sing the Clarisol song."

I think Sanger D. Shafer (one of the co-writers) performs as Whitey Shafer. You can hear his recording on YouTube

Other recordings:
Darrell McCall, on "Real McCall" 1996 (but I think his single came out in 1972)
Merle Haggard on "If We Make It Through December" 1974
Leo Kottke on "Time Step" 1983
Michael Martin Murphey, "Tonight We Ride" 1986.
The Country Gentlemen on "The Early Rebel Recordings 1962-1971" 1998.
