Anybody know this? I heard it on an old Asleep at the Wheel album some years back, but it sounds much older. Kinda Tin Pan Alley:"but I'll just sit and blow my pipe dreams everywhere/Baby till my pipe goes out."

Another tidbit, but no lyrics so far - this page says the song was on a 1978 Asleep at the Wheel album called Collision Course.

PIPE DREAMS was written by J. R. Chatwell, a western swing fiddler active from the 30s to the 90s.

I transcribed this from a sound sample of Asleep at the Wheel:

Imagination gets the best of me.
So I'll set and blow my pipe dreams ev'rywhere,
Baby, till my pipe goes out, goes out.

PIPE DREAMS also appears on Chatwell's "Jammin' with J. R. and Friends," Edsel CD 560, 1998. This comes from a sound sample of that album:

I watch my smoke rings as it drifts away.
My heart goes with them each night and day,
So I'll sit and blow my pipe dreams away,
Baby, till my pipe goes out.

Good start, but there's also a bridge in this song. Can anybody add to this?

I LOVE this song. Here's the bridge as I remember it:

In imagination I'm alone with you
in my rendezvous of dreams
I need inspiration to contend with you
I'm all alone it seems, it seems

From memory.

So sweet is solitude, beyond compare
When lights are low, music fills the air
So I'll sit and blow my pipe dreams everywhere
Baby 'til my pipe goes out, goes out

I've watched my smoke rings, as they blow away
My heart goes with them, each night and day
So I'll sit and blow my pipe dreams everywhere
Baby 'til my pipe goes out, goes out

In imagination I'm alone with you
In my rendezvous of dreams
I need inspiration to contend with you
I'm all alone it seems, it seems

Just like a derelict I have sailed life's seas
Imagination gets the best of me
So I'll sit and blow my pipe dreams everywhere
Baby 'til my pipe goes out, not too far off, baby 'til my pipe goes out
Oh yeah.

Er, the "from memory" was supposed to be at the top, not between the first and second verse. Sorry, don't sem to be able to edit that.
Fixed it, I think. -Mod

Appreciate response from Guest. Any chance you could post the chords, I'm not so good at getting them by ear. Thanks again.
