This is a great song but I thought it was a bit short on verses for a session, so I wrote a few more to fill it out and it works out just fine.

There's a thread on the Doc Watson version of this song here (click). that thread tentatively identifies the songwriter as "S. Cook," but BMI lists a song with that title by James McGinnis.


MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
Songwriter: (?)

Softly tonight, while the world is at rest,
Meet me somewhere in your dreams,
Where lovers find only true happiness,
Meet me somewhere in your dreams.
    We'll take a trip on memory's ship,
    Drifting down life's golden streams.
    I'll still have you at our old rendezvous,
    Meet me somewhere in your dreams.
While the moon's shining and everything's still,
Meet me somewhere in your dreams,
Where our hearts' longings are always fulfilled,
Meet me somewhere in your dreams.
    We'll take a trip on memory's ship,
    Drifting down life's golden streams.
    I still have you in our old rendezvous,
    Meet me somewhere in your dreams.

    We'll take a trip on memory's ship,
    Drifting down life's golden streams.
    I'll still have you at our old rendezvous,
    Meet me somewhere in your dreams.

I found a third verse on a youtube video from The Bluegraas Solution

it goes:

-Sometimes at night before you close your eyes
Meet me .....
Remember the time before we said goodbye
Meet me ......

This is the song with the extra verses that I thought filled it out a little bit.

SOFTLY TONIGHT WHILE THE WORLD IS AT REST
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
WHERE LOVERS FIND ONLY TRUE HAPPINESS
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
WE`LL TAKE A TRIP ON MEMORIES SHIP
DRIFTING DOWN LIFE`S GOLDEN STREAMS
I`LL STILL HAVE YOU AND OUR OLD RONDEZVOUS
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS

WHILE THE MOON`S SHINING AND EVERYTHING`S STILL
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
WHERE OUR HEARTS LONGINGS ARE ALWAYS FULFILLED
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
WE`LL TAKE A TRIP ON MEMORIES SHIP
DRIFTING DOWN LIFE`S GOLDEN STREAMS
I`LL STILL HAVE YOU AND OUR OLD RONDEZVOUS
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS


THINK HOW YOU LEFT ME ALONE AND FORLORN
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
STAY IN MY ARMS TILL THE SUN GREETS THE DAWN
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
WE`LL TAKE A TRIP ON MEMORIES SHIP
DRIFTING DOWN LIFE`S GOLDEN STREAMS
I`LL STILL HAVE YOU AND OUR OLD RONDEZVOUS
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS

TIMES WHEN I THOUGHT THAT AGAIN YOU`D BE MINE
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
WE COULD BE ONE TILL THE END OF OUR TIME
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
WE`LL TAKE A TRIP ON MEMORIES SHIP
DRIFTING DOWN LIFE`S GOLDEN STREAMS
I`LL STILL HAVE YOU AND OUR OLD RONDEZVOUS
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS

SOMETIME TONIGHT BEFORE YOU CLOSE YOU'RE EYES
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
REMEMBER THE TIME BEFORE WE SAID GOODBYE
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
WE`LL TAKE A TRIP ON MEMORIES SHIP
DRIFTING DOWN LIF`ES GOLDEN STREAMS
I`LL STILL HAVE YOU AND OUR OLD RONDEZVOUS
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS
WE`LL TAKE A TRIP ON MEMORY SHIP
DRIFTING DOWN LIFE`S GOLDEN STREAMS
I`LL STILL HAVE YOU AND OUR OLD RONDEZVOUS
MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS

Just thinking that I hope I haven't stepped on anybody's toes adding these extra lyrics.

Hi, Bluegrassman -
No toes stepped on. It's better not to post things in ALLCAPS, but it's not a big deal...

MEET ME SOMEWHERE IN YOUR DREAMS

Softly tonight, while the world is at rest,
Meet me somewhere in your dreams,
Where lovers find only true happiness,
Meet me somewhere in your dreams.
   We'll take a trip on memory's ship.
   Drifting down life's golden streams,
   I'll still have you in our old rendezvous.
   Meet me somewhere in your dreams.

While the moon's shining and everything's still,
Meet me somewhere in your dreams,
Where our hearts' longings are always fulfilled,
Meet me somewhere in your dreams.
   We'll take a trip on memory's ship …..

Sometimes at night before you close your eyes
Meet me somewhere in your dreams,
Remember the time before we said goodbye
Meet me somewhere in your dreams,
   We'll take a trip on memory's ship …..

Think how you left me alone and forlorn
Meet me somewhere in your dreams.
Stay in my arms till the sun greets the dawn
Meet me somewhere in your dreams.
   We'll take a trip on memory's ship …..

Times when I thought again you'd be mine
Meet me somewhere in your dreams.
We could be one till the end of my time
Meet me somewhere in your dreams.
   We'll take a trip on memory's ship …..
