"Simply one of the greatest songwriters alive."--Rolling Stone magazine
I tried to put the chords over the lyrics according to how they change.

INTRO:	G

C		 D		  G
	I walked in my great coat,   down through the days of leaves
C	D		           G
	No before, after, yes, after before
C	      D			  G
We were shining our light into the days of blooming wonder
C   D		              G			  D
In the eternal presence,   in the presence of the flame

CHORUS:
G	D/F#	Em	       D/B	          C
Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder?
G	D/F#	Em	D/B	    C
Didn't I come to lift your fiery vision bright?
G	D/F#	Em	      D/B	          C		   G
Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder----- in the flame?

C	D		       G
On and on and on, we kept singing our song
C	D					G
Thru Newtonards and Comber, Gransha and the Ballystockart Road
C		           D					            G
With Spike and Boffyflow, I said I would describe the leaves for Samuel
							& Felicity
C         D			          G			D
Rich, red, browney, half burnt orange and green

CHORUS:
G	D/F#	Em	       D/B	          C
Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder?
G	D/F#	Em	D/B	    C
Didn't I come to lift your fiery vision bright?
G	D/F#	Em	      D/B	          C		   G
Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder----- in the flame?

BRIDGE:
Em		         Bm
It's easy to describe the leaves in the Autumn
Em		      Bm
And it's oh so easy in the Spring
Em		   Bm
But down through January and February
C		            D
It's a very different thing

C	D			       G
On and on and on, through the winter of our discontent
C		          D					G
When the wind blows up the collar and the ears are frostbitten too
C			  D			           G
I said I could describe the leaves and what it means to you and me
X			      D			G
You may call my love Sophia, but I call my love philosopy

CHORUS:
G	D/F#	Em	       D/B	          C
Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder?
G	D/F#	Em	D/B	    C
Didn't I come to lift your fiery vision bright?
G	D/F#	Em	      D/B	          C		   G
Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder----- in the flame?

CHORUS:
G	D/F#	Em	       D/B	          C
Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder?
G	D/F#	Em	D/B	    C
Didn't I come to lift your fiery vision bright?
G	D/F#	Em	      D/B	          C		   G
Didn't I come to bring you a sense of wonder----- in the flame?
