From the sheet music at Indiana University:
Words, Ballard Macdonald. Music, Mary Earl.
New York: Shapiro, Bernstein & Co., 1918.
VERSE: Long, long ago
Someone I know
Had a little red canoe
In it room for only two
Love found its start
Then in my heart
And like a flower grew.
CHORUS: Drifting with the current down a moonlit stream
While above the heavens in their glory gleam
And the stars on high
Twinkle in the sky
Seeming in a paradise of love divine
Dreaming of a pair of eyes that looked in mine
Beautiful Ohio, in dreams again I see
Visions of what used to be.
[When the above chorus is repeated, it is sung as counterpoint to a simpler version of the chorus:]
Drifting in the moonlight
While the heavens gleam
Seeming deep in love
Dreaming of your eyes
In my dreams used to be.
[Recorded by Glenn Miller, Chet Atkins, Percy Faith, Kate Smith, Hank Snow, and many others.]
