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

Chorus:
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

Chorus:
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

Chorus

Don't let the falling leaves take her away

    My mother sang that a lot, and I would cry. I had an only sister. This year at age 80, my beautiful sister did pass away - November 13. It was the day my gingko tree lost most of its leaves and I cried as I watched the leaves fall, remembering that song from many years ago.
