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    Funny how my memory skips while looking over manuscripts of unpublished rhyme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