Leaves That Are Green  Simon & Garfunkel

I was twenty-one y[Em]ears when [A7]I wrote this so[D]ng,
I'm twenty-two now, but I w[G]on't [C]be for lo[D]ng,
Time hurries [A7]on,
And the le[D]aves t[C]hat are [G]gr[Em7]een t[A7]urn to br[D]own.
And they w[Bm]ither with the wind,
And they c[Em7]rumble in your hand.
[D]Once my heart was f[Em]illed with[A7] the love of a [D]girl,
I held her close, but she f[G]aded [C]in the ni[D]ght,
Like a poem I meant to w[A7]rite,
And the le[D]aves t[C]hat are [G]gr[Em7]een t[A7]urn to br[D]own,
And they wi[Bm]ther with the wind,
And they cr[Em7]umble in your hand.
I th[D]rew a p[Em]ebble [A7]in a b[D]rook,
And watched the ripples r[G]un [C]aw[D]ay,
And they n[G]ever made a s[A7]ound,
And the lea[D]ves th[C]at are g[G]re[Em7]en tu[A7]rned to b[D]rown,
And they wi[Bm]ther with the wind,
And they cr[Em7]umble in your hand.
[D]Hello, [Em]hello, he[A7]llo, h[D]ello,
Goodb[D]ye, goodbye, good[G]bye, g[C]oodb[D]ye,
[G]That's all there [A7]is,
And the lea[D]ves th[C]at are g[G]re[Em7]en tu[A7]rned to b[D]rown.
