Verse:
The twilight shadows deepen into night, dear,
The city lights are gleaming o'er the snow,
I sit alone beside the cheery fire, dear,
I'm dreaming dreams from out the long ago.
I fancy it is springtime in the mountain,
The flowers with their colors are aflame,
And every day I hear you softly saying,
"I'll wait until the springtime comes again."
 
Chorus:
When it's springtime in the rockies,
I am coming back to you.
Little sweetheart of the mountains,
With your bonny eyes of blue.
Once again I'll say "I love you,"
While the birds sing all the day.
When it's springtime in the rockies,
In the rockies, far away.
