Lyrics: First verse I wander tonight where the moon softly beams, Into the past thro' a garden of dreams; There I will linger with you, dear, once more, As I did in the days of yore. Refrain When I was a dreamer and you were my dream, We lived in a palace of gold; Each beautiful dream brought you nearer, it seemed, Close in my arms to enfold. I dreamed that you always would love me, I dreamed of a world just for two; But I was a dreamer and you were my dream, A dream that has never come true. Second verse I'm dreaming again of a day in the past, Dreaming of love that you said was to last; Now like a dream that I dream in the night, All my love dreams have taken flight. (Refrain)

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.
