A popular song of the day composed by Stephen Foster in 1854. It is still seen in media even today. Popular movies and cartoon characters, such as Bugs Bunny have sung this song.

this was one of the first songs written that was intended for amateurs and professionals for singing along with the sheet music.

Foster allegedly wrote this song for his wife, Jennie, from whom he was separated in an attempt to woe her back.

lyrics:
I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair,
Borne, like a vapor on the summer air,
I see her tripping where the bright streams play,
Happy as the daisies that dance on her way
Many were the wild notes her merry voice would pour
Many were the blithe birds that warbled them o'er
Oh I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair,
Floating like a vapor on the soft summer air!
