Lyrics
Eating honey from the Catskills
And I thought about you
Haven't been in that neck of the woods
Guess I'm long overdue

Getting hard to leave this hollow
My family's been two hundred years
Oh, but let me go a little while
Until this sweet dream disappears

I was up on Bear mountain
Hitchhiking in the dark
Not a headlight for hours
Things were looking pretty stark

Now I think about that starry night
And my eyes well up with tears
Oh let me cry a little while
Until this sweet dream disappears

Got a ride with a shoe salesman
He said I never come this way
Every since they built the new road
I don't know why I did today

Getting harder to travel
It gets harder every year
But it only takes a little while
Until this sweet dream disappears

Slept one time in New Jersey
By the side of the road
And I thought about your warm heart
As I shivered in the cold

Now I've stayed in fancy hotels
With crystal chandeliers
Let me stay here for a little while
Until this sweet dream disappears

Eating honey from the Catskills
And I thought about you
Haven't been in that neck of the woods
I guess I'm long overdue

We were a long time together
And I've kept your memory near
Let me go there for a little while
Until this sweet dream disappears

Oh let me go there for a little while
Until this sweet dream disappears
