"I Never Dreamed" as written by Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines....
My daddy told me always be strong son
Don't you ever cry
You find the pretty girls, and then you love them
And then you say goodbye
I never dreamed that you would leave me
But now you're gone
I never dreamed that I would miss you
Woman won't you come back home

I never dreamed that you could hurt me
And leave me blue
I've had a thousand, maybe more
But never one like you
I never dreamed I could feel so empty
But now I'm down
I never dreamed that I would beg you
But woman I need you now

It seems to me, I took your love for granted
It feels to me, this time I was wrong, so wrong
Oh Lord, how I feel so lonely
I said woman, won't you come back home

I tried to do what my daddy taught me,
But I think he knew
Someday I would find
One woman like you
I never dreamed it could feel so good Lord
That two could be one
I never knew about sweet love
So woman won't you come back home
Oh baby won't you come back home

    General CommentCan't believe no one has commented on this song! The meaning is obvious, and certainly isn't anything new.. but the presentation is great. Great sound, and dominant guitar solo at the end..

    One of the most underrated Skynyrd songs.

    General CommentI totally agree with Nilmerf the meaning is simple. but the song, I mean wow. It is just amazing to say the least, I can FEEL the solos, the guitar its all just beautiful, I agree, one of the most underrated Skynyrd songs.

    It's one of my favourites.

    General CommentI can't believe there aren't more comments on this song..

    This is a really nice song, the meaning is pretty straight forward, there's a few lines that really speak to me when I hear this song and they are:
    "I never dreamed that you could hurt me
    And leave me blue
    I've had a thousand, maybe more
    But never one like you"

    General CommentHoly shit. How about that nice little giddy up and go at around the 3 minute mark? Music rules, in general.
