lovely lyrics: early autumn


No comments

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

– lyrics by Johnny Mercer, 1949
