I dream of Jean - ie with the light brown hair,
Borne like a va - por on the sum - mer air,
I see her trip - ping where the bright streams play,
Hap - py as the dai - sies that dance on her way.
Man - y were the wild notes her mer - ry voice would pour.
Man - y were the blithe birds that war - bled them o'er.
I dream of Jean - ie with the light brown hair,
Float - ing like a va - por on the soft sum - mer air.
