There's a Long, Long Trail (Bamforth series 4924)

"There's a Long, Long Trail" was a set of three hand-coloured postcards published by Bamforth & Co. Ltd. of Holmfirth.

The text is based on the popular First World One song of the same name, composed by Stoddard King (words) and Alonzo "Zo" Elliott (music).[1]

The postcards were published as series number 4924

There's a Long, Long Trail (1)

Nights are growing very lonely, days are very long,
I'm a-growing weary, only list'ning for your song;
Old remembrances are thronging thro' my memory,
Thronging till it seems the world is full of dreams,
Just to call you back to me.

There's a Long, Long Trail (2)

There's a long, long trail a-winding into the land of my dreams,
Where the nightingales are singing and the white moon beams;
There's a long, long night of waiting, until my dreams all come true,
Till the day when I'll be going down that long, long trail with you.

There's a Long, Long Trail (3)

All night long I hear you calling, calling sweet and low,
Seem to hear your footsteps falling ev'rywhere I go;
Tho' the road between us stretches many a weary mile,
Somehow I forget that you're not with me yet
When I think I see you smile.
