Goin' down to Lillian's music store
To buy a black diamond string
Gonna wind it up on my guitar
Gonna make that silver sing
Like it was dreamville
A long time ago
A million miles away
All the trees were green
In dreamville

I keep wakin' up all by myself
With a blue jay in my brain
Flappin' his wings
Making me sing
It was just about to rain

Like it was dreamville
Where I was born
Light-years from here
And the air smelled good
In dreamville

Ridin' with my mama
To Glen Springs pool
Water was cold
My lips were blue

There was rock and roll
Across the dial
When I think of her
It makes me smile

Like it was dreamville
A long time ago
A million miles away
All the trees were green
In dreamville
In dreamville

It was in dreamville
A long time ago
Light-years from here
And the air smelled good
In dreamville
