Author:Other Writer
Theme: Love

*writer:_Stephen Foster

8 -8 -7 7 -7
I dream of Jea-nie

-6 6 -7 -4 5 6
with the light bro-wn hair,

6 -6 -7 9 8
Borne, like a va-por,

-8 -7 -6 6 -6
on the sum-mer air;

8 -8 -7 7 -7
I see her trip-ping

-6 6 -7 -4 5 6
where the bright stre-ams play,

-6 7 -8 8 -9 9 -7
Hap-py as the dai-sies

8 -8 7 7 -8
that dance on her way.

-6 -7 -6 6 -6 -7
Ma-ny were the wild notes

-6 6 -5 6 -7 -8
her mer-ry voice would pour,

8 -8 -8 9 -8 -7
Ma-ny were the blithe birds

7 6 5 -4 -4
that war-bled them o'er,

-4 5 -5 6 -6 -7 7
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-h!

8 -8 -7 7 -7
I dream of Jea-nie

-6 6 -7 -4 5 6
with the light brown hair,

-6 -6 9 8 -8 8
Float-ing, like a va-por,

6 -6 -7 -7 -6 6
on the soft sum-mer air.


verse 2
I long for Jeanie
with the daydawn smile,
Radiant in gladness,
warm with winning guile;
I hear her melodies,
like joys gone by,
Sighing 'roundmy heart
o'er the fond hopes that die:
Sighing like the night wind
and sobbing like the rain,
Wailing for the lost one
that comes not again.
Oh! I long for Jeanie
with my heart boys low,
Never more to find her
where the bright waters flow.


verse 3
I sigh for Jeanie,
but her light form strayed
Far from the fond hearts
'round her native glade;
Her smiles have vanished
and her sweet songs flown,
Flitting like the dreams
that have cheered us and gone,
Now the nodding wild flow'rs
may wither on the shore
While her gentle fingers
will cull them no more:
Oh! I sigh for Jeanie
with the light brown hair,
Floating, like a vapor,
on the soft summer air.
