[D]        [C]        [G]        [D]        [Dsus2]    [D] 
Verse 1

[D]I woke up today [C]and found snow p[G]erched on the ground    [D]        [Dsus2]            
[D]It hovered in a [G]frozen sky and g[A7]obbled summer down      [D]        [Dsus2]            
[G]So when the leaves were tremblin[F]g
[G]Frozen trees were standi[F]ng in a lonely r[A7]ow


[D]I get the urge for going[C] bu[G]t I never seem to go [D]        [Dsus2]                [D]
[F]And I get the ur[G]ge for go[D]ing when the me[F]adow gra[G]ss is turning br[D]own
[F]And summertime is [G]fallin[D]g down and winter's movi[D]ng in

repeat intro

Verse 2 (chords are same as verse 1)

I had a love in summertime with summer-colored skin
And not another one in town my darling's heart could win
But when the sky turned traitor cold
And bully winds did rub their noses in the snow


She got the urge for going and I had to let her go
And she got the urge for going when the meadow grass was turning brown
Summertime was falling down and winter's moving in

Verse 3

The warriors of winter gave a cold triumphant shout
Now all that dies is staying and all that lives is getting out
See the geese in chevron flight
Flurrying and flapping through the naked sky


They got the urge for going
They've got the wings to fly
They get the urge for going when the meadow grass is turning brown
And summertime is falling down and winter's moving in

Verse 4

I'll ply the fire with kindling and pull the blankets to my chin
I'll lock the vagrant winter out and bolt my wandering in
I'd like to call back summertime
And ask her just to stay another month or so


But sh[D]e got the [C]urge for going
[G]I guess she'll have to g[D]o       [Dsus2]                [D]
[F]And she got the [G]urge for [D]going when the [F]meadow g[G]rass was turning[D] brown
[F]Summertime is fall[G]ing do[D]wn and winter's moving i[D]n
[F]And she got the [G]urge for [D]going when the [F]meadow g[G]rass was turning[D] brown
[F]All my empires are[G] falle[D]n down a[D]nd winter's moving in   [C]
