Oh What A Dream
Ruth Brown Lyrics


Woke up this morning and I looked around
So disappointed, I laid back down
Oh, what a dream, what a dream
I had last night

Dreamed I held you in my arms
But I'm still waitin' for that day to come

Oh, what a dream
(What a dream)
What a dream
(What a dream)
I had last night

Oh, what a dream
(What a dream)
What a dream
(What a dream)
I had last night

Dreamed we were walkin' down the aisle
The organ was playing "Here Comes the Bride"
You looked out at me and you began to smile
When I looked around everybody began to cry

I opened my eyes, you weren't there
All of my happiness just disappeared

Oh, what a dream
(What a dream)
What a dream
(What a dream)
I had last night

I opened my eyes, you weren't there
All of my happiness just disappeared

Oh, what a dream
(What a dream)
What a dream
(What a dream)
I had last night

Oh, what a dream
(Oh, what a dream)
What a dream
(Oh, what a dream)
I had last night

Written by the late great Chuck Willis. I love to listen to this lady sing.

we NEED ALL OF RUTH BROWN SONGS IN ONE SESSION

bennie sedillo

I love this song. Ruth was great.

Donald Morrow

The Queen of R&B (a whole decade before Aretha Franklin) and Chuck Willis, master R&B songwriter are a match made in heaven on this masterwork.  The story told here is positively cinematic.  Ruth's vocals are pure soul (long before the word was coined).  And it all is backed by the best Doo-Wop R&B instrumentation in existence.  Not only one of Ruth Brown's best records, but Atlantic Records' best.

Joseph Kane

Another timeless Classic hit single from Miss Ruth Brown with one of her Very best singles ever as it is Called Oh What A Dream

George Phinn

The Term Rock And Roll was not Coined as yet - Rock And Roll was coined in 1955 or early 1956 by Allan Freed when Bill Haley “Rock Around The Clock” burst on the scene. So “Oh What A Dream” by Ruth Brown May be called - R & B. Great Song - well done by Ruth Brown - She has a sound almost like Lavern Baker - Jim Dandy - both were pioneers of Rock And Roll
