Leaves That Are Green

Performer: Simon and Garfunkel
Capo 5

[C]    [Dm]    [G]    [C]    
[C]    [F]    [G]    [C]    
[C]I was twenty-[Dm]one years when I [G]wrote this [C]song
I'm [C]twenty-two now, but I [F]won't [G]be for [C]long
[F]Time hurries [G]on  
And the [C]leaves [G]that are [F]gre  [G]en turn to [C]brown
And they [Am]wither with the wind
And they [Dm]crumble in your [G]hand.

[C]Once my heart was [Dm]filled with the [G]love of a [C]girl
I [C]held her close, but she [F]faded [G]in the [C]night
[F]Like a poem I meant to [G]write
And the [C]leaves [G]that are [F]gre  [G]en turn to [C]brown
And they [Am]wither with the wind
And they [Dm]crumble in your [G]hand.

[C]I threw a [Dm]pebble [G]in a [C]brook
[C]And watched the [F]ripples [G]run aw[C]ay  
[F]And they never made a [G]sound
And the [C]leaves [G]that are [F]gre  [G]en turn to [C]brown
And they [Am]wither with the wind
And they [Dm]crumble in your [G]hand.

[C]Hello, [Am]hello, [G]hello, [C]hello
[C]Goodbye, [F]goodbye, [G]goodbye, [C]goodbye

[F]That's all there [G]is  
And the [C]leaves [G]that are [F]gre  [G]en turn to [C]brown.

Capo 5



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.
