Em Em9 Em Am7 D7 GM7 G6 The au - tumn leaves drift by my window, Am6 B7 Em Em9 Em The autumn leaves of red and gold. Em Em9 Em Am7 D7 GM7 G6 I see your lips, the summer kisses, Am6 B7 Em The sunburned hands I used to hold. B+ Em B7 Em Since you went away, the days grow long, Em7 Em D7 D D7 G And soon I'll hear old win - ter's song; CdimIV CdimI B7 Em Em9 Em But I miss you most of all, my Dar - ling, A Am7 B7 Em Am7 Am6 Em(9) When au - tumn leaves start to fall.
