Dreams I'll Never See by Molly Hatchet was written by Gregg Allman and was first recorded and released by The Allman Brothers Band in 1969.
Molly Hatchet is an American southern rock band formed by guitarist Dave Hlubek in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1971. They were a popular band during the late 1970s and early-to-mid 1980s among the Southern rock and hard rock communities. The band released six studio albums on Epic Records between 1978 and 1984, including the platinum-selling hit records Molly Hatchet (1978), Flirtin' with Disaster (1979) and Beatin' the Odds (1980).
They also had successful hits on the Billboard charts, including "Flirtin' with Disaster", "The Rambler", "Bloody Reunion" and "Satisfied Man". Molly Hatchet has released eight more studio albums since their split with Epic in 1985, although none of them have been as successful as their early albums, nor charted in the United States.
Molly Hatchet has experienced numerous lineup changes throughout their 51-year career. While its current lineup includes none of the members who played on the band's first album, who are all deceased, keyboardist John Galvin has been a member of Molly Hatchet since 1984 (with the exception of a break between 1991 and 1994) and Bobby Ingram has been their guitarist since 1987, when he replaced founding member Dave Hlubek, who would rejoin the band 18 years later and stayed with the band until his death in 2017.
Yeah, yeah Just one more mornin' I had to wake up with the blues Pulled myself outta bed, yeah Put on my walkin' shoes Climb up on a hilltop, baby To see what I could see, yeah The whole world was fallin' down, baby Right down in front of me
'Cause I'm hung up on dreams I'm never gonna see, yeah Lord help me, babe Dreams get the best of me, yeah
Pull myself together Gonna put on a new face, yeah Climb down from the hilltop, baby Lord, get back in the race
'Cause I got dreams, I've got my dreams To remember the love we had I got dreams, I've got my dreams To remember the love we had
'Cause I'm hung up on dreams I'm never gonna see yet, oh yeah Lord help me, baby Dreams get the best of me yet
Alright, yeah, yeah
Pull myself together Put on a new face Climb down from the hilltop, baby Lord, get back in the race
'Cause I got dreams, I've got my dreams To remember the love we had I've got dreams, I've got my dreams To remember the love we had
And I'm hung up, Lord, on dreams I'm never gonna see yet Not bad, not bad Lord help me, baby Dreams get the best of me yet I wanna
