Verse:
Cov - ered with dust and for - got - ten,
Like the face up - on - the wall.
The one sou - ve - nir of the days gone by,
I trea - sure most of all.
It's there in the gloam - ing I lin - ger,
To kiss the mark of each fin -ger.
 
Chorus:
There's an old spin - ning wheel in the par - lor,
Spin - ing dreams of the long, long a - go.
Spin - ning dreams of her old fash - ioned gar - den,
And a maid with her old fash - ioned beau.
Some - times it seems that I can hear her in the twilight,
At the or - gan soft - ly sing - ing sweet and low.
There's an old spin - ning wheel in the par - lor,
Spin - ing dreams of the long, long a - go.
