Del McCoury – When Fall's Comin' Down lyrics

Robins have left for the winter
The leaves on the trees are all down
Frost on the window this morning
And the grass in the field is all brown
Well it's been a year since you left me
It seems like a lifetime to me
Now you're still gone and I'm still alone
Just me and my old used to be

And I get the blues
When falls comin' down
That's when your old memories
Start comin' around
I hear the cold north wind blow
With it's high lonesome sound
And I get the blues
When falls comin' down

I still don't know why you left me
Lord knows I've tried, how I've tried
I built that new home on the mountain
Oh, but still you weren't satisfied
Well once in a while I can manage
To keep these old blues on the shelf
Well I get through it all
Till the leaves start to fall
