The Green Leaves Of Summer chords by Peter And Gordon

Guitar chords with lyrics

On the charts in 1964.

        (Capo 1st fret.)
#1.
 D7
A time to be reaping, a time to be sowing,
  B7
the green leaves of summer are calling me home.
     G
T'was so good to be young then, in the season of plenty.
     B7
When the catfish were jumping as high as the sky.

#2.
 D7
A time just for planting and a time just for plowing.
 B7
A time to be courting, a girl of your own.
     G
T'was so good to be young then, to be close to the Earth.
    Em
And to stand by your wife, at the mo..ment of birth.

#3.
 D7
A time to be reaping, a time to be sowing.
  B7
The green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.
     G
T'was so good to be young then, with the sweet smell of apples,
    B7
And the Owl in the Pine tree a-winking his eye.

#4.
 D7
A time just for planting, a time just for ploughing.
 B7
A time just for living, a place for to die.
     G
T'was so good to be young then, to be close to the Earth,
    Em
Now the green leaves of Summer are call..ing me home.

OUTRO:
     G
T'was so good to be young then, to be close to the Earth,
    Em
Now the green leaves of Summer are calling me home.


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
