DOLLY PARTON - I Dreamed of a Hillbilly Heaven Lyrics

(Dolly Parton - Eddie Dean - Hal Southern)

I dreamed I was there in hillbilly heaven
Oh, what a beautiful sight
And I met all the stars in hillbilly heaven
Oh, what a star spangled night.

Last night I dreamed I went to hillbilly heaven
And just as I arrived the old curtain lifted
And there on stage stood who else but Roy Acuff and Tex Ritter
They said well how you doing come on in here
I know there's some folks you wanna see
Over there's our newest member
Your old friend Conway Twitty, say Hello Darlin'
And there's gentlemen Jim Reeves singin' with heaven's choir
Roger Miller he just got here he's making everybody laugh
Course you know Roy Orbison can sing just as high as anybody here
And Ernest Tubb can sing as low
And Patsy Cline, well, bet she's the best singin' angel here
And Dottie West is probably the prettiest
There's the old pea-picker Ernie Ford
Jimmy Rodgers, George Morgan, Hank Williams
And the wandering boy Web Pierce
The old honky tonker himself Lefty Frizzell
My goodness what a group
Would you just listen to Mother Mabel
Over there pickin' the Wildwood Flower with the angel band
You know I personally think she's just about God's favorite
And Marty Robbins, well, he's still gettin' more encores
Than anybody else up here just like he used to down on earth
Yeah, well, there's Elvis they still call him the King
But we know they're not talking about the real king up here.

I dreamed I went to hillbilly heaven
Oh, what a star studded night.

Then I ask Roy and Tex, I said well, who do you think will be showin' up
Say within the next 40, 50, 60 years
They handed me a big tallybook and in it I saw names like Johnny Cash
George Jones, Merle Haggard, Don Gibson, Mel Tillis, Farren Young, Kitty Wells
Some of the newer ones like Vince Gill and Garth Brooks
Course they talked about Minnie Pearl the Judds, Tanya Tucker
Reba McEntire, Hank Jr. oh, of course Buck Owens, Roy Rodgers, Gene Autry
Randy Travis and Willie Nelson There's old Chet
I said, well, where's Porter Wagoner's name, oh, there it is
And then there was Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette and Dolly Parton
Oh, that's when I woke up.

I dreamed I was there in hillbilly heaven, oh, what a beautiful sight
And I met all the stars in hillbilly heaven, oh, what a star spangled night...
