Intro (w/main riff):  / Am - - - / G - - - / F - - - / E7 - - - /

 

Am (2)                                      G (2)

Time, time, time, see what's become of me

          F (2)                                     Em (hold 2)

While I looked around, for my possibilities

              G (2)

I was so hard to please, but

 

Chorus (w/main riff):

           Am                      G

look around, leaves are brown,

               F         E7           

and the sky is a hazy shade of winter

 

Am (2)                           G (2)

         Hear the Salvation Army Band

   F (2)                                                                               Em (hold 2)

Down by the riverside, it's bound to be a better ride, than what you've got planned

                  G (2)

Carry your cup in your hand, and

 

Chorus

 

Am (2)                        G (2)

        Hang on to your hopes, my friend

     F (2)                                                                                   Em (hold 2)

That's an easy thing to say, but if your hopes should pass away, simply pretend

                     G (2)

that you can build them again

 

Chorus (w/main riff):

           Am                       G

Look around, the grass is high

                       F                   E7               

The fields are ripe, it's the springtime of my life

 

Bridge:

 

/ Am - - - / - - - - /

 

F (2)                                             C (2)    

      Ah, seasons change with the scenery, weaving time in a

 G (2)                                              Am (2)

tapestry, won't you stop and remember me

G (2)

   At any convenient time

   F (2)                                                                                   Em (hold 2)

Funny how my memory skips while looking over manuscripts of unpublished rhyme

                     G (2)

drinking my vodka and lime

 

Outro (w/main riff 'til end):

               Am                    G

I look around, leaves are brown now,

                F        E7           

and the sky is a hazy shade of winter

 

Am          G                         F                     E7                  

    Look around, leaves are brown, there's a patch of snow on the ground

Am          G                         F                     E7                  

    Look around, leaves are brown, there's a patch of snow on the ground

Am          G                         F                     E7                  

    Look around, leaves are brown, there's a patch of snow on the ground

 

End on Am
