Emmylou Harris - Sweet Dreams Lyrics

Sweet dreams of you
Every night I go through
Why can't I forget you and start my life anew
Instead of having sweet dreams about you

You don't love me, it's plain
I should know I'll never wear your ring
I should hate you the whole night through
Instead of having sweet dreams about you

Sweet dreams of you
Things I know can't come true
Why can't I forget the past, start loving someone new
Instead of having sweet dreams about you

    This is the standard. Sorry Patsy Cline, your song is a classic, but Emmy Lou is the best!!!

    Joe Pesci not being able to even set foot in the parking lot brought me here.


    You and me both, Cole G.

    Kevin Miller

    What does Joe Pesci have to do with this song?

    Johnnyboy Mena

    It was in the movie Casino 1995

    Kevin Miller

    What does a song by Emmylou Harris have to do with Joe Pesci? Too bad she turned herself into a platinum blonde; she looks better as a brunette.

  16. Cherryll Cooke

    I love this version of hers

    First heard this in the movie Casino when Ace (Robert Deniro) and Nicky (Joe Pesci) meet outside of Vegas at a diner (After Nicky got banned from Las Vegas Casino's)
    to discuss Nicky's predicament. Sam basically told Nicky he is screwed. Nicky then says his famous lines at 1:40-1:46
    "I'm staying here...fuck'em.......fuck'em"

    Joseph Sullivan

    They had it made, but they couldn't stop being themselves.

    Joseph Sullivan

    Nicky didn't enjoy the baseball game.

    Nate Hester

    " Well their not getting rid of me I'm staying. Fuck em. FUCK EM."

    Very early in my life, I dated Emmylou (I took her to the movies twice and to our school picnic.)  I was too immature to be dating anyone,  and we parted company .  She started going out with a guy who was around 3 or 4 years older than us who worked in a bowling alley.  I  Never had any contact with her since, except for the time I saw her in concert about 20 years ago.  A friend of mine named Scott Arkin gave me free tickets to the concert.  He was a local DJ at an oldie station.  They were Freakin' FRONT  Row tickets.  I can't remember who opened the show but I was anxious to see Emmylou.  Finally the lights dimmed as they announced her name,  as she came onstage in a spectacular black laced  dress.  I was mesmerized for the next 90 minutes.  At the concerts end, Emmylou sang SWEET DREAMS.   Tears began rolling uncontrollably down my face.  She was no more than 20 feet from me as I drooped over the railing gazing at her, while she was looking at me..  My mind was wondering what might have been.  At the show's end, I picked up the flowers I had brought, and held them in my outstretched arms so Emmylou could take them.  She stooped as she reached for them and said "it sure is nice to see you again Terry."  I couldn't answer her as I was momentarily tongue tied.  I never saw her again. Sniff

    That's a nice story, Spanky. I'm real happy you were able to see her again and speak to her. Very nice story.

    This version of "Sweet Dreams" does justice to this Patsy Cline song!


    Considering that Emmylou is one of the best performers of country music, that is not surprising, G.

    joseph roache

    This is a song written by Don Gibson. Listen to the version by Tommy McLain, it’s on the Jin label.

    Meade Vlog channel

    It's not a Patsy Cline song. It's Don Gibson. And he did it best !

  39. Lyegk
