Lyrics: First verse In long ago, ‘side lakes with silver sheen and skies of blue. We wander'd side by side, thro' glade and green, To spend the hours the Love God sent us, e'en as he sent you. Oh, Land of dreams that mem'ry can't forget, Oh, land of flow'ret gleams; O land where sorrow can ne'er be met, Sweet, glad Land of Dreams! Chorus Dreamland! Dreamland! Thats where I'd be with thee; Dreamland! Dreamland! Over skies and over sea; Dreamland! Dreamland! How long ago it seems Since you and I were all alone In our own, our Land of Dreams! Second verse The years have pass'd, but oh! the mem'ry stays, as scent of flow'rs Clings to the leaves, tho' gone their golden blaze Which shone so radiantly in life's bloom, in those golden hours Oh, time of dreams, my heart will rend in twain! Give me my life a new! Cloudland of love come back, come back again! Dreamland and just we two! (Chorus)

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.
