Faron Young performs "Sweet Dreams "

"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

 

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

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 ---

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

Sweet dreams about you.

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...
