Emmylou Harris – Sweet Dreams, or “Sweet Dreams (of You)” is a country ballad, which was written by Don Gibson. Gibson originally recorded the song in 1955; his version hit the top ten of Billboard’s country chart, but was eclipsed by the success of a competing version by Faron Young. In 1960, after Gibson had established himself as a country music superstar, he released a new version as a single. This version also charted in the top ten on the country chart and also crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at number ninety-three. The song has become a country standard, with other notable versions by Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris.

Emmylou Harris – Sweet Dreams Lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
You don’t love me it’s plain
I should have known you’ll never wear my ring
I know I should hate you the whole night through
Instead of having sweet dreams about you

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 3]
Sweet dreams of you
Every night I go through
Why can’t I forget you, start loving someone new
Instead of having sweet dreams about you

[Outro]
Instead of having sweet dreams about you
