Elvis Presley – Follow That Dream

About The Song

When you have a goal or a dream, it is right to follow and achieve it no matter what. The King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, recorded “Follow That Dream” in his EP album of the same name. The track was also featured in the soundtrack for the movie Follow That Dream which he starred in.

Because of the song’s positivity, Bruce Springsteen performed a rearranged version of “Follow That Dream” at a slower pace, unlike Elvis’s original version. The track, written by Ben Weisman and Fred Wise, took the 15th spot on the US Billboard Hot 100 and at number 5 on the Billboard Easy Listening chart.

“Follow That Dream” is among Elvis Presley’s songs with an optimistic perspective on life. The song’s lyrics motivate the listeners to chase their dream and keep moving along.

The first part of the song mentions that Elvis Presley has to follow that dream and keep moving along. He has to follow his dream wherever his dream will lead him and find the love he needs.
While we chase our heart’s desires, we might encounter a few problems. These problems can question our worth, abilities, and capacity, yet we will most definitely make it through when we ground ourselves in the dream. The road might be rough, yet all will be worth it when we reach our destination.

The lyrics of “Follow That Dream” also suggest taking a breather when things get tough. The song mentions moving along when the heart is restless and singing a song when it gets weary. The journey to reaching the goal is challenging, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with resting when you become too tired.

Lyric

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤

Follow that dream, I gotta follow that dream
Keep a-movin, move along, keep a moving
I’ve got to follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
I’ve got to follow that dream to find the love I need

When your heart gets restless, time to move along
When your heart gets weary, time to sing a song
But when a dream is calling you,
There’s just one thing that you can do

Well, you gotta follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
You gotta follow that dream to find the love you need

Keep a-movin, move along, keep a moving

Got to find me someone whose heart is free
Someone to look for my dream with me
And when I find her I may find out
Just what my dreams are all aboutI’ve got to follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
I’ve got to follow that dream to find the love I need

I’ve got to follow that dream wherever that dream may lead
I’ve got to follow that dream to find the love I need

Keep a-movin, move along
Keep a-movin, move along
Keep a-movin, move along
