The postman came to me this morning
And dropped your letter in the door
Then went his way so gay and smiling
Leaving my old heart so sad and sore.

Chorus:
You painted all the clouds with sunshine
And named the day that we would wed
But with the tide those dreams are drifting
There's no golden tomorrow ahead.

Those plans we made together darling
Have faded like the mists at sea
Your letter reads you've found another
That you love someone else, dear, but me.

Chorus:
You painted all the clouds with sunshine
And named the day that we would wed,
But with the tide those dreams are drifting,
There's no golden tomorrow ahead.

The days are long, so sad and dreary
The nights are lonely and so blue
But true as stars shine down from heaven
I will never love no one but you.

Chorus:
You painted all the clouds with sunshine
And named the day that we would wed,
But with the tide those dreams are drifting,
There's no golden tomorrow ahead.

I hope, sweetheart, that you'll be happy
Along life's path you've chose to tread
But you'll find there's no love like mine dear
There's no golden tomorrow ahead.

Chorus:
You painted all the clouds with sunshine
And named the day that we would wed
But with the tide those dreams are drifting
There's no golden tomorrow ahead...
