I was waltzing by the ohio, river of dreams,
with the girl of my dreams in my arms
and the music, beautiful music,
was the breeze through the trees
as the moonlight came over her charms.
We promised to always be faithful and true
but we drifted apart,
now i'm lonesome and blue
and an other is waltzing by the river of dreams
with the girls of my dreams in his arms.
