Faron Young – 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.
In the summer of 1956 Faron Young recorded “Sweet Dreams” and took it all the way to #2 on the country charts. It was this version that garnered Gibson his first recognition as a talented songwriter.

Faron Young – 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 know you’ll never wear my name
I should hate you the whole night through
Instead of having sweet dreams about you
[Instrumental Break]
[Verse 3]
Sweet dreams of you
Dreams I know can’t come true
Why can’t I forget the past, start loving someone new?
Instead of having sweet dreams about you
[Verse 2]
You don’t love me it’s plain
I should know you’ll never wear my name
I should hate you the whole night through
Instead of having sweet dreams about you
