WE sleep upon fir-tree boughs at night,
My hunting-dog and I:
He dreams of the chase thro' the whistling pines
But I
Dream of a house in a city street
Where the smoky chimneys rise to meet
The arching blue of the sky.

We sleep upon fir-tree boughs at night,
My hunting-dog and I:
He dreams of a stag with his antlers tall;
But I
Dream of a girl with a round sweet face,
Of her pretty ways and her charming grace,
And the bonds we hope to tie.

We sleep upon fir-tree tops at night,
My hunting-dog and I:
He dreams of the morrow's sunny smile;
But I
Dream of one that I idolize,
And the promise that rests in her soft blue eyes
For the coming by and by.
