You followed me to Texas you followed me to Utah
We didn't find it there so we moved on
Then you went with me to Alabama things looked good in Birmingham 
We didn't find it there so we moved on

I know you're tired of following my elusive dreams and schemes 
For they're only fleeting things my elusive dreams
You had my child in Memphis then I heard of work in Nashville 
We didn't find it there so we moved on

To a small farm in Nebraska to a gold mine in Alaska 
We didn't find it there so we moved on
And now we've left Alaska because there was no gold mine
But this time only two of us move on

And now all we have is each other and a little memory that we can cling to
But still you won't let me go on all alone 
I know you're tired of following...
