Lyrics [Chorus]:
THERE'S A LONG, LONG TRAIL
A-WINDING
INTO THE LAND
OF MY DREAMS,
WHERE THE NIGHTINGALES
ARE SINGING
AND A WHITE MOON
BEAMS.
THERE'S A LONG,
LONG NIGHT OF WAITING
UNTIL MY DREAMS
COME TRUE;
TILL THE DAY
WHEN I'LL BE GOING
DOWN THAT LONG,

LONG TRAIL WITH YOU.

[verse 1]:
NIGHTS ARE GROWING
VERY LONELY,
DAYS ARE VERY LONG.
I'M A-GROWING
WEARY
ONLY
LIST'NING
FOR YOUR SONG.
OLD REMEMBRANCES
ARE THRONGING
THROUGH MY MEMORY,
TILL IT SEEMS
THE WORLD
IS FULL OF DREAMS
JUST TO CALL YOU
BACK TO ME.

[Chorus]:
THERE'S A LONG, LONG TRAIL
A-WINDING
INTO THE LAND
OF MY DREAMS,
WHERE THE NIGHTINGALES
ARE SINGING
AND A WHITE MOON
BEAMS.
THERE'S A LONG,
LONG NIGHT OF WAITING
UNTIL MY DREAMS
COME TRUE;
TILL THE DAY
WHEN I'LL BE GOING
DOWN THAT LONG,
LONG TRAIL WITH YOU.

[verse 2]:
ALL NIGHT LONG
I HEAR YOU CALLING,
CALLING SWEET
AND LOW.
SEEM TO HEAR
YOUR FOOTSTEPS
FALLING,
EV'RYWHERE I GO.
THOUGH THE ROAD
BETWEEN US
STRETCHES
MANY A WEARY MILE,
I FORGET
THAT YOU'RE NOT
WITH ME YET,
WHEN I THINK
I SEE YOU SMILE.

[Chorus]:
THERE'S A LONG, LONG TRAIL
A-WINDING
INTO THE LAND
OF MY DREAMS,
WHERE THE NIGHTINGALES
ARE SINGING
AND A WHITE MOON
BEAMS.
THERE'S A LONG,
LONG NIGHT OF WAITING
UNTIL MY DREAMS
COME TRUE;
TILL THE DAY
WHEN I'LL BE GOING
DOWN THAT LONG, LONG TRAIL
WITH YOU.
