Verse:
My day dreams lie bur - ied in au - tumn leaves,  They're cov - ered with au - tumn rain,
The time is sweet Sep - tem - ber,  The place, a shad - y lane,
I'm rid - ing the wings of an au - tumn breeze,  Back to my mem - o - ries;
 
Chorus:
The leaves of brown came tum - bling down, re - mem - ber?
In Sep - tem - ber, in the rain,
The sun went out just like a dy - ing em - ber,
That Sep - tem - ber, in the rain,
To ev - 'ry word of love I heard you whis - per,
The rain - drops seemed to play a sweet re - frain,
Though Spring is here, to me it's still Sep - tem - ber,
That Sep - tem - ber, in the rain.
