Jackie Morris: Music

Autumn Song

(Jackie Morris)

Whistling

 

Closing up the shutters

Suitcase in the car

Taking one last look around

What’s here will soon be far

Snapping one more photo

Of the bridge over the pond

Autumn chill is in the air

It’s time for moving on.

 

CHORUS:   

And the wind in the trees

Makes the red and gold leaves wave goodbye.

They whisper sweet nothings

I watch as they flutter and fly.

And I never can shake it

Though year after year I still try

The breath-taking beauty of autumn

Makes me want to cry.

 

Heading to the airport

Following the sun

Home to California

Seems we’re always on the run.

Still my heart would stay here longer

Though I’m shivering like a leaf

It’s the siren song of Autumn--

That old love song of a thief.

 

Whistling outro

 

And the wind in the trees

Makes the red and gold leaves wave goodbye.
