"Had a Dream (For the Heart)" is a song written by Dennis Linde. It was originally recorded by Teresa Brewer as "For the Heart" on her 1975 album, Unliberated Woman, and then covered by Elvis Presley, also as "For the Heart", on his 1976 album From Elvis Presley Boulevard, Memphis, Tennessee. Presley's version, the A-side from the album with "Hurt" as the B-side, peaked at number 45 on the Hot Country Songs charts that year.[1]

The Judds covered the song and released it as their debut single in December 1983, from their debut EP, Wynonna & Naomi. The song reached number 17 on the same chart.[2]
