"Leaves That Are Green" lyrics

Leaves That Are Green

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 whither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand

Once my heart was filled with 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
