[Verse 1.]
Golden Gate,
I have been dreaming of you,
Of your wond'rous land.
Of your silver sand.

Golden Gate,
You're like an old friend that's true,
I miss your dear old shores,
I miss your open doors;

Shores of old California
How I miss you,
Miss your waves of blue,
And your roses too,

Flowers sweet don't surround me,
As in days of yore,
Southern shores of old California
I'm coming back once more.

[Verse 2.]
Golden Gate,
I miss your mountains so green,
All your wond'rous scenes.
I see in my dreams,

Golden Gate,
You bring back scenes of childhood,
Oh, how I long for you,
You make me feels so blue;
