THE LEAVES ON THE TREES lyrics Rick Miller copyright 2014

and the leaves on the trees turn yellow
now the leaves on the trees blush red
with the harvest in store for the winter
now the robin of Summer has fled
She told me that she had to be leaving
Before the winds of October blew
Said she was going where I couldn't follow
She'd be back by the following June
now the leaves on the trees have fallen
and the branches are covered in snow
and the marigold seeds all slumber
in the hard, frozen ground below
Well the nights just go on forever
I hear the lonesome hoot-owl cry
Picture her face just the way I remember
Smiling on the Fourth of July
Smiling on the Fourth of July

and the leaves on the trees start budding
and the buds of the leaves flash green
and the ice-melt is swelling up the river
where the robin of Summer was seen

With a restless stirring in the soft ground
Up comes a bright green stalk
And I swear I get happy near to bursting
Remembering the way she walked
with the leaves on the trees up above us
Swayin in the soft, gentle breeze
days are long and the nights are sultry
underneath the sycamore trees

and I hear her footsteps in the meadow
and I hear her singing on the hill
Just waiting till she comes around that corner
Any moment now, I know she will.
Any moment now, I know that she will.

and the leaves on the trees turn yellow
now the leaves on the trees blush red
with the harvest in store for the winter
now the robin of Summer has fled
