is a sentimental popular song written by Harry D. Kerr and Lou Traveller in 1920. In the song, the singer is reminiscing about a long-ago young love that happened somewhere in the "hills of the old Cumberland." The chorus echoes the singer's longing:
- Blue Jeans, the days are lonely,
- Blue Jeans, I dream of you,
- The Wildwood May days and childhood play days,
- Those golden summer hours we knew;
- Songbirds are softly calling,
- Down where the grass is blue,
- The trail up yonder, we used to wander,
- There, pretty Blue Jeans, I'll wait for you.
