"Drift Off to Dream" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Travis Tritt. It was released in January 1991 as the fifth and final single from his debut album Country Club. It peaked at number 3 in the United States, while it became his third number-one hit in Canada. The song was written by Tritt and Stewart Harris.
"Drift Off to Dream" is a mid-tempo waltz. It begins with the male narrator, alone in a bar, thinking about a lover whom he would like to meet. He imagines holding hands with her on a blanket in the yard and kissing until she "drift[s] off to dream" in his arms.
The music video was directed by Sherman Halsey.
