  Chords for "Leaves That Are Green"

Words & music by Paul Simon 1965


                |Em        |A7          |D    |
I was twenty-one years when I wrote this song.

   |          |         |G     C     |D  |  |
I'm twenty-two now but I won't be for long

G   |       |A7 |
Time hurries on.

       |D     |C       |G  Em7| A7     |D     |  |  |
And the Leaves That Are Green   turn to brown,

        |Bm             |     |  |
And they wither with the wind,

        |Em7            |A7   |  |
And they crumble in your hand.


D      |         |Em             |A7       |D    |
Once my heart was filled with the love of a girl.

 |        |              |G     C     |D    |  
I held her close, but she faded in the night

      |G   |          |A7
Like a poem I meant to write.

       |D     |C       |G  Em7| A7     |D     |  |  |
And the Leaves That Are Green   turn to brown

        |Bm             |     |  |
And they wither with the wind,

        |Em7            |A7   |  |  |
And they crumble in your hand.


  D      |Em    |A7  |D    
I threw a pebble in a brook

   |           |       |G   C|D    |
And watched the ripples run away

        |G           |A7    |
And they never made a sound.

       |D     |C       |G  Em7| A7       |D     |  |  |
And the Leaves That Are Green   turned to brown

        |Bm             |     |  |
And they wither with the wind,

        |Em7            |A7   |  |  |
And they crumble in your hand.


D  |      |Em    |A7      |D   
 Hello, Hello, Hello, Good-bye,

    |         |         |G    C   |D  |  |
Good-bye, Good-bye, Good-bye, Good-bye

G                |A7 |
 That's all there is.


       |D     |C       |G  Em7| A7       |D     |  |Bm |
And the Leaves That Are Green   turned to brown,
