The sheet music was published by the Joseph M. Daly Company of Boston, Massachusetts in 1908. The cover features a blue-tinged illustration of a man at a pier looking at battleships sailing in the bay. There is an inset photograph of Ben F. Loring on the lower right of the cover, who would have featured and performed the song in his act.
