I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair
Come like a vapour on the summer air
I see her tripping where the bright streams play
happy as the daisies that dance on her way
Many were the wild notes her merry voice would pour,
Many were the blithe birds that warbled them o'er
I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair
floating like a vapour on the soft summer air.
Do do do etc.

I long for Jeanie with the day dawn smile,
radient with gladness, warm with winning guile.
I hear her melodies like joy gone by
sighing round my heart o'er the fond hopes that die.
Sighing like the night wind and sobbing like the rain,
waiting for the lost one that comes not again.
I long for Jeanie and my heart bows low
never more to find her where the bright waters flow.
Do do do etc.
