Sweet Dreams

Synopsis: Patsy Cline was the first female solo artist to be elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Thirty-two years after her untimely death in a plane crash in Tennessee, her "Greatest Hits" album sold over six million copies. Loved by her fans today as much - if not more - than she was at the height of her fame, the life, the loves and most of all the voice of Patsy Cline is legendary. This film tells the story of the passionate, fun-loving, soft-spoken, loud-living life of one of country music's - and one of popular music's - greatest singing stars. This film covers the years 1956 through 1963, from her rise to fame and the top of the charts through TB talent shows and country bars - through her turbulent marriage to Charlie Dick and the demands of touring which would lead to the fatal plane crash.

to scream and claw my face.

What should I do?

You didn't ask me how to

get into this marriage.

I don't think you ought to

ask me how to get out of it.

Is he mean to you? No.

Does he drink? Gamble?

Does he chase the women?

Then what?

Come on, girl. Speak the

truth and shame the devil.

God as my witness, I don't know!

I laid in bed and thought,

" Sh*t! What if I was blind

or didn't have my legs?"

You watch that mouth.

Mom, I'm home.

I'm starvin'.

There's lunch made,

but don't spoil your dinner.

Say hello to your sister before

you worry about your belly.

I don't know, Mama.

My life ain't so bad.

I got a decent house,

a man who loves me.

I've even sung on

television four times.

Tell me. Why do I have to

force myself to get out

of bed every mornin'?

You always was hard to

keep satisfied, even when

you was little.

I'm not talking about

when I was three.

I'm asking you what

I should do now.

Maybe you should scream and claw

your face. See if that'll help.

I said blue moon of

Kentucky keep on ashinin'

Shine on the one that's

gone and left me blue

Blue moon of Kentucky

keep on ashinin'

Shine on the one that's

gone and left me blue

It was on one moonlit night

Stars shining bright

Whispered on high

Love said goodbye

I said blue moon of

Kentucky keep on ashinin'

Shine on the one that's

gone and left me blue

Thank you. Goddamn

woman, you're good!

That b*tch can sing!

I don't know if you

remember me. Take a walk.

I really like the way you sing.

What were you doing while I sang?

You think that's funny?

I was listening.

I don't like the way you

listen. Take a walk.


Oh, merciful God.

I want to explain.

It's the creature

that wouldn't die.

I came over here to

explain. He won't go away.

To apologize for messin' you up.
