• Song:

    Autumn Leaves

  • Artist:

    Happy Cats

The Jazz-Classic written by Joseph Kosma.

The Chords are the way Fred Sokolow teaches the song on youtube (very helpful).

The Lyrics are the way Bing Lyle from Brighton/England sang the song in 1986 at 
Bären-Pub in Balingen/Germany. Bing also was the singer in the early 80s in a Band 
called "The Happy Cats" who played this song in several Pubs in Germany and 
England. It was a real-good-time!!

Am          Dm7    G           Cmaj7   Fmaj7
The falling leaves drift by my window 

             Bm7b5  E7         Am
Those autumn leaves of red and gold 

Am      Dm7      G            Cmaj7    Fmaj7
I still remember, your summer kisses         

                Bm7b5 E7        Am
Those sunburned hands I used to hold 

               E7                 Am     
Since you went away the days grow long 

              Dm   G           Cmaj7   Fmaj7
And soon I´ll hear old winters song 

      Bm7b5            E7     Am        Dm*
But I miss you most of all my darling 

           Bm7b5  E7              Am
When those autumn leaves start to fall

* Fred Sokolow plays D7 but I prefer Dm.
