Autumn Song  Harvey Andrews

4/4 time
Capo: none
Recorded by Harvey Andrews on Friends of Mine album in 1973. The song has an
ethereal feel to it and is played in the key of A minor. I suggest that it be
played in a light finger picking style with feeling.
The chord of G should be played throughout as shown in the tab diagram below to
help keep the minor mood of the song. The lower case notes 'c' and 'ae' are
intended to be played as single notes. The 'c' should be played as shown below on
the 4th beat of the measure which leads into the Am chord. The ae (an A5 chord) at
the end of the coda should be plucked together:
G [////] c A[////]m ae
 
 E--x------x----0----------0--
 B--0------1----1----------x--
 G--0------x----2----------x--
 D--0------x----2----------x--
 A--2------x----0----------0--
 E--3------x----0----------x--

Intro: Play Am a few times
On a [Am]misty autumn [Dm]morning
[Am] You can hear the wild birds [Dm]call
[G] Giving chilly winter [Am]warning
E c Am
That the evening star will fall.
[Am] I feel the wind that sings their [Dm]crying
[Am] I wish the dying sun goo[Dm]dbye
[G] And I stand to see them [Am]flying
E c Am
To a warm and welcome sky.
Chorus:
And I [Am]stay to meet cold [Dm]winter
[G] To crunch the crackling ice and [E]snow
[F] To walk alone beneath bare [G]branches
[E] And wonder why you had to [Am]go.
[Am] The empty rooms they echo [Dm]laughter
[Am] The broken door creaks one more [Dm]song
[G] And in the silence that comes [Am]after
E c Am
The dusty floors, they ask 'how long?'
(Repeat chorus)
And I stay to meet... etc
[Am]Soon I'll find winter clothes to [Dm]hold me
[Am] And wrap myself against the [Dm]cold
[G] But frost and fire, they never [Am]told me
E c Am
There is no peace in growing old.
Coda:
E ae (let ring)
There is no peace in growing ... old.
