Though I wander far
‘Neath a distant star,
Happy dreams for ever waking
Keep my lonely heart from aching.
Voices soft and free
Oft are calling me,
There’s a golden pathway shining
Far across the sea.
There’s a trail that calls me homeward
Night and day,
In my dreams the loved ones beckon
Through the shadows and the sunshine
Some day I shall roam
Down that long, long trail awinding,
The trail that leads back to home.
In those dreams divine
Happy faces shine,
Back at home again I wander,
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Friends across the blue
Give their love anew,
There’s a welcome waiting there,
When all my dreams come true.
