Original lyrics:

When the sun says goodnight to the mountain

And the gold of the day meets the blue

In my dreams I’m alone on the mountain

With a heart that keeps calling for you

The voice in the trees

The song in the breeze

They bring memories of love we knew

When the sun says goodnight to the mountain

I am dreaming, my sweetheart, of you.

Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection (Transcribed by Bill Huntley – May 2013). Our lyrics were different: eg: ‘says goodbye’ – ‘brings back sweet memories of you’
