Moon Mullican – Leaves Mustn't Fall lyrics

The autumn leaves were falling
And the snow was soon to come
As I was walking down a lonely road
I saw a little fellow who was sitting all alone
Catching leaves as they began to fall

The leaves mustn't fall, oh no they mustn't fall
I'm tying the leaves so they will stay
I've lost my mom and dad
Now sister's all I have

Don't let the falling leaves take her away
My sister's only seven, and she's sure a pretty thing
As pretty as a picture on the wall

The doctor came this summer and he said that she would die
When the autumn leaves had turned and start to fall

So won't you help me mister
Won't you help me tie the leaves
We'll tie them to the branches good and strong

So come now we must hurry
So we can keep my sister here
And show the doctor man that he was wrong


Don't let the falling leaves take her away
