Wah, wah, wah, waaahhhh 
I dreamed I was there in hillbilly heaven 
Oh what a beautiful sight 


Last night I dreamed I went to hillbilly heaven. And you know who greeted 
me at the gate? The ole cowboy-philosopher himself, Will Rogers. He said 
to me, he said "Tex, the Big Boss of the riders up here has asked me to 
kinda show you around. Now, over yonder are a couple of your ole 
compadres 


." My, was I glad to see them, Carson Robison and the 
Mississippi blue yodeler Jimmie Rodgers. 

I dreamed I was there in hillbilly heaven 
Oh what a beautiful sight 

He introduced me to Wiley Post, and he showed me the Hall of Fame with 
all the gold guitars and fiddles hanging on the walls. Then he said, 
"Tex, step over this way, there are two more of your friends I know 
you'll want to see, they're waitin' for you." There they were standin' 
side by side and smilin' at me--Hank Williams and Johnny Horton. 


I met all the stars in hillbilly heaven 
Oh what a star-studded night 

Then I asked him who else do you expect in the next, uh, say a hundred 
years? He handed me a large book covered with star dust. Will called it 
the Big Tally Book. In it were many names and each name was branded in 
pure gold. I began to read some of them as I turned the pages: Red Foley, 
Ernest Tubb, Gene Autry, Roy Acuff, Eddy Arnold, Tennessee Ernie, Jimmy 
Dean, Andy Griffith, Roy Rogers, Tex Ritter 
Whaaaatttt??? 
Tex Ritter? Oh, well, that's when I woke up, and I'm sorry I did, because 


I dreamed I was there in hillbilly heaven 
Oh what a beautiful sight
