lyrics

DREAMS OF STRUMMER
I had a dream about Joe Strummer last night
He told me everything was gonna’ be alright
He said “we shall overcome,
As long as there are kids to strum
& heaven holds a place
For those with love and soul and grace”

I had a dream about Joe Strummer last night
He told me everything was gonna’ be alright
He said “believe in greater things
We can all be Kings
And passion sometimes takes it’s toll,
Like trouser, brain like heart and soul”

And he was wearing dark blue jeans
And he offered me a smoke
Looking not unlike Jimmy Dean
And he was smiling as he spoke

I had a dream about Joe Strummer last night
He told me everything was gonna’ be alright
He said “I know that times are tough,
But rock ‘n’ roll still just might save us,
And tell all the girls and boys,
Me and Dury are still making noise”

And he was wearing rock ‘n’ roll clobber
And he offered me a drink
And he was singing “Bankrobber”
I swear to God man it was him

I had a dream about Joe Strummer last night
He told me everything was gonna’ be alright

(Caulfield)
