I remember this song where there is a couple that have been to places. The man finds different jobs while the woman stays with him.

It’s a bit sad because I’m the song their child died but, still the wife stayed with him.

Featured lyrics:

I know you're tired of wandering, my dreams and schemes

What is the title of this very old song?

My Elusive Dreams by Tammy Wynette and David Houston (written by Claude Putman, Billy Sherrill), released in 1967 is sang by a female and a male (the couple).

They had a child but, I some point, not there any more.

I followed you to Texas
I followed you to Utah
We didn't find it there, so we moved on
I followed you to Alabama
Things looked good in Birmingham
We didn't find it there, so we moved on
I know you're tired of following
My elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only fleeting things
My elusive dreams
I had your child in Memphis
You heard of work in Nashville
We didn't find it there, so we moved on
To a small farm in Nebraska
To a gold mine in Alaska
We didn't find it there, so we moved on
And now we've left Alaska
Because there was no go-old mine
But this time, only two of us moves on
Now all we have is each other
And a little memory to cling to
And still you won't let me go on alone
I know you're tired of following
My elusive dreams and schemes
For they're only fleeting things
My elusive dreams
For they're only fleeting things
My elusive dreams
