D F#m Bm Bm7/E You are the summer and I am the autumn -- Em7 Em7/9 Em7 A7 Don't wait too long; Em7 A7 G/B Cdim A7 Em7 Your song's beginning, while mine's nearly sung -- G Edim A7 D DM7 Don't wait too long. Bridge: G Cdim Em Edim Fall is a lovely time of the year, A7 D6 Em7 Gdim D9 When leaves turn to gold and brown; Bm F#7 Bm7 B7 But soon fall is ending, winter is near, G G/F# Em7 Em6 A7 And the leaves start tum - blin' down. D F#m Bm Bm7/E Why must the moments go by in such haste? Em7 Em7/9 Em7 A7 Don't wait too long. Em7 A7 G/B Cdim A7 Em7 Winter is coming I've no time to waste -- G Edim A7 D DM7 D7 Don't wait too long. G G/F# Em7 Em6 So while my heart's gay and foolish and free, D F#m B7 And still can sing it's song, Em B+ G Em6 A7 Share ev'ry precious moment with me - Edim A7 D6 Don't wait too long.
