The Dream was written by Bill Castle and sung by Russell Moore who on one you Tube video said it was written by Bill Castle.

Definitely written by Bill Castle, along with many other bluegrass and gospel songs. Have known Bill for over 50 years.

Did Bill Castle actually have that dream?

While Bill Castle wrote the song, IIIrd Tyme Out is the ones who recorded the song originally. IIIrd Tyme Out does it in the key of E. The chord progression is 1-4-1-2-5-1-4-1-4-1-5. It repeats the chord progression on chorus the same. Put the capo on the second fret and play out of the D position (aka. start with the D chord) and that is the key of E.

1=D
2=E
3=F
4=G
5=A
6=B
7=D

D
WITH MY HEAD ON MY PILLOW
G D
WHILE ASLEEP IN A DREAM I DID GO

TO THE PLACE WHERE THEY CRUCIFIED JESUS
E A
ON THAT OLD RUGGED CROSS, CRUEL AND COLD
D
THERE THE GREATEST LOVE STORY WAS WRITTEN
G D
VISUALIZE WITH ME IF YOU WILL
G D
OUR SAVIOR ON THAT APRIL MORNIJNG
A D
AS HE CARRIED THE CROSS UP THE HILL

D
AND I SAW THOSE NAILS, THOSE OLD RUSTY NAILS,
G D
AND THE CROWN MADE OF THORNS THAT HE WORE

SO SAD WAS THE SCENE THAT I CRIED IN MY DREAM
E A
SO GREAT WAS THE PAIN THAT HE BORE
D
THEY SCORNED AND THEY MOCKED, H E DRANK THE BITTERCUP
G D
AS HE HUNG THERE WITH TWO COMMON THIEVES
G D
FOR HE HAD TO FULFILL, HIS FATHER'S OWN WILL
A D
AND I WAS RIGHT THERE IN A DREAM.


D
AS I STOOD THERE ON TOP OF MT. CALVARY
G D
IN HIS PAIN I COULD HEAR HIS SAD CRY

FROM THE SIXTH HOUR TIL NINE THERE WAS DARKNESS
E A
IN MY DREAM OH SO HELPLESS WAS I
D
I THANK HIM FOR THAT DAY ON THE MOUNTAIN
G D
THE PRICE THAT HE PAID WAS SUPREME
G D
IN MY HEART I CARRY A PICTURE
A D
OF WHAT I SAW THERE IN A DREAM

Here it is with the chords above where the changes are in the key of D. If you put the capo on the 2nd fret and play these exact chords it is the same as the key of E (the key it was written in).
