Verse:
Dreams call to me,
O - ver a rose tint - ed sea.
I wait on the shore,
For the one I a - dore.
 
Chorus:
When My Dream Boat Comes Home,
Then my dreams no more will roam.
I will meet you and greet you,
Hold you close - ly "My own."
Moon - lit wa - ters will sing,
Of the ten - der love you bring.
We'll be sweet - hearts for - ev - er,
When My Dream Boat Comes Home.
