Paul Simon – Leaves That Are Green lyrics
Leaves that are green

(Ccdd) cgc/Cfg7c/Fg7/Cgcgc/Cgam/Amfg

I was 21 years when I wrote this song
I'm 22 now, but I won't be for long
Time hurries on

And the leaves that are green turn to brown
And they wither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand

Once my heart was filled with the love of a girl
I held her close, but she faded in the night
Like a poem I meant to write


I through a pebble in a brook
And watched the ripples run away
And they never made a sound

Hello hello hello hello
Goodbye goodbye goodbye goodbye
That's all there is
And the leaves that are green turn to brown

By Paul Simon and Art Garfunkle
