C Fdim Am7 Dm D9 G Dm7 Fdim CM7 Am If ever I would leave you, it wouldn't be in summer; Dm F Dm7-5 G Cdim G Am7 G/B C CM7 C7 Seeing you in sum - mer, I nev - er would go -- C7 FM7 G G/B Em7 CM7 Am Your hair streaked with sunlight, your lips red as flame, F Dm Dm+7 Dm7 F Gdim Dm Dm7 G Your face with a luster that puts gold to shame. C Fdim Am7 Dm D9 G Dm7 Fdim CM7 Am But if I'd ever leave you, it couldn't be in autumn; Dm F Dm7-5 G Cdim G Am7 G/B C CM7 C7 How I'd leave in au - tumn, I nev - er will know. C7 FM7 G G/B Em7 CM7 Am I've seen how you sparkle when fall nips the air; F Dm Dm+7 Dm7 F G C Dm7 G I know you in autumn and I must be there. Bridge: E C#m7 A B7 E And could I leave you running merrily through the snow? G# Bbm7 F#m7 B7 G7 Or on a wintry evening when you catch the fire's glow?
