Early Autumn

By W. Herman, J. Mercer, & R. Burns

When an early autumn walks the land
And chills the breeze and touches with her hand
The summer trees perhaps you’ll understand
What memories I own

There’s a dance pavilion in the rain
All shuttered down, a winding country lane
All russet brown, a frosty window pane
Shows me a town grown lonely

That spring of ours that started so April-hearted
Seemed made for just a boy and girl
I never dreamed, did you, any fall would come in view
So early, early

Darling, if you care,
Please, let me know, I’ll meet you anywhere
I miss you so, let’s never have to share
Another early autumn

That spring of ours that started so April-hearted
Seemed made for just a boy and girl
I never dreamed, did you, any fall would come in view
So early, early

Darling, if you care,
Please, let me know, I’ll meet you anywhere
I miss you so, let’s never have to share
Another early autumn
