Lyrics to "I Dream Of Jeanie With The Light Brown Hair"

-- Written: 1854


I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair,
Borne like a vapor on the summer air;
I see her tripping where the bright streams play,
Gay as the daisies along her way.
Many are the fond notes her merry voice would pour,
Echoed by the birds that warbled them o'er,
I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair,
Floating like vapor, on the soft summer air.


I long for Jeanie with the daydawn smile,
Radiant in gladness, warm with winning guile;
I hear her melodies, like joys gone by,
Sighing round my heart o'er the fond hopes that die,
Many are the fond notes her merry voice would pour,
Echoed by the birds that warbled them o'er,
I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair,
Floating like vapor, on the soft summer air.
