[Interlude]
E A C D E G F# B

[Verse]
E                    A            C         D          E
Now that there are green sprouts pushing through dead leaves,
     A          E       B
and fat yellow jackets float on the breeze,
E                    A            C  D   E
the waves kiss the shore and the air is warm,
     A               E      A                 E
but birch trees are falling now that you are gone.

[Chorus]
A        C           D         E
Once we walked the crumbling cliffs
A          C      D    E
where the birch trees lean;
A       C          D      E
Once I kissed your apple lips
A      E        B
high above the sea.

[Interlude]
E A C D E G F# B

[Verse]
   E           A            C     D      E
A year ago it was when the last clover grew.
A               E          B
Under creaking birch trees I would wait for you.
E                 A           C         D       E
We kissed in the salt air between the leaning trees,
A               E       A           E
white slender branches bent to the sea.

[Chorus]
A        C           D         E
Once we walked the crumbling cliffs
A          C      D    E
where the birch trees lean;
     A        C        D      E
now who will kiss your apple lips
A          E     B
under the salty sea

[Outro]
