The Paul Simon Songbook, 1965

Capo 2nd fret
Tuning: Standard
Key: D 
Sounding Key: E


This is an absolutely georgeous song.  Paul Travis picks through most of 
it.  Bar the first four strings at the second fret for the A6 chord.  

I've marked the 4th and 11th bars from the start of the verse.  For the 
third verse, at the fourth bar play the first two beats only and at the 
11th bar play the first two beats only.  For the fourth verse, at the 11th 
bar, play the first two beats only.  After the fourth verse, skip from % to 
the ending.

Lyrics:

I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song.
I'm twenty-two 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.
And the leaves that are green turn to brown.
And they wither with the wind, 
And they crumble in your hand.

I threw a pebble in a brook,
And watched the ripples run away.
And they never made a sound.
And the leaves that are green turn to brown.
And they wither with the wind,
And they crumble in your hand.

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