The fall - ing leaves drift by the win -dow,
The au - tumn leaves of red and gold.
I see your lips the sum - mer kiss - es,
The sun - burned hands I used to hold.
Since you went a - way the days grow long,
And soon I'll hear old win -ter's song.
But I miss you most of all my dar - ling,
When Au - tumn Leaves start to fall.
