Tom Russell - Where The Dream Begins


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[Intro]
C  F C    G C

[Verse 1]
                                F        C
What happened to the kid in the baseball cap?
                                    G                 C
Well, he’s trying to get home but I think he lost the map
                                  F             C
What happened to the kid with the braces on his teeth?
                                   G      C
He had an autographed picture of Muhammad Ali
            F                         Bb                 F
He’s just a wise-assed, buck-toothed, near-sighted fool
       C                           G        C
Always staring at the girls in the swimming pool
F                           Bb             F
Thirty years later and he’s staring again 
     C                                 G        C
He’s searching for the place where the dreams begin
                  Am                      Dm    C
Searching for the place where the dream begins


[Verse 2]
                                         F           C
Then he bought a bunch of records and he heard a man sing
                                       G              C
He said, "If I could write a song, I believe I’d be a king"
                               F              C
But it took him twenty years until he got the nerve
                                  G              C
He’s got boxes full of papers and papers full of words
        F                   Bb              F
And the words fly away like swallows on the wind
         C                      G     C
But they never flew back to the nest again
                      Am                      Dm  
Never took him to the place where the dream begins


[Interlude]
C  F C    G C


[Verse 3]
                                   F              C
Then he finally got married and he had two little girls
                                    G              C
But he didn’t see ‘em much cause he had to see the world
                                     F         C
And the lie that he told ‘em is "I’m like most men
                                   G       C
It’s always down the road that the dream begins"
        F                   Bb               F
And the girls grew up to be pretty and wise 
                C                            G              C
They said, "You could have seen the dream by looking in our eyes
F                             Bb                F
You were always living in the world of pretend
         C                 G               C
You kept running away from where the dream begins
         Am                         Dm     C
Running away from where the dream begins" 


[Verse 4]
                                    F          C
Now he’s living with a woman out on Borderland Road
                                     G           C
But her love’s turned bitter and her eyes turned cold
                                          F        C
She said, "We came to the desert, let the sickness mend
                                   G        C
But Hell ain’t the place where the dreams begin"
F                 Bb              F
Look out boys I’m gaining on you 
         C                      G         C
He’s old Blind Joe Death in his alligator shoes
           F                        Bb                F
He’s got a pocketful of pills and a pint of sloe gin 
           C                               G       C
He’s gonna show you to the place where the dream begins
           Am                     Dm
Follow him down where the dream begins


[Interlude]
C  F C    G C


[Verse 5]
                                   F           C
At the end of the road there ain’t nothing but fear
                           G       C
Just a big old room with a big old mirror
                              F              C
And the man in the mirror his hair’s turning grey
                                  G             C
And his hands begin to shake in a funny kind of way 
           F                           Bb              F
He’s knows everything you bring for to save your soul
 C                        G               C
Everything denied will condemn you to the hole
         F                     Bb                F
With his hand on his heart, he picks up his pen
        C                                 G       C
He goes searching for the place where the dream begins
                Am                      Dm    C
Looking for the place where the dream begins


[Outro]
                                F        C
What happened to the kid in the baseball cap?
                                    G                 C
Well, he’s trying to get home but I think he lost the map


[Outro]
C  F C    G C
