Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: FIRST LEAVES OF AUTUMN
This is what I hear:

The First Leaves Of Autumn    Benny Gallagher & Graham Lyle

Capo 3rd fret to play along with the album

(C) (C4)(C) (C4)(C)
As the daylight turns to starlight
And the (F)season turns to (G)change,
I (C)get the same old answers,
But the (F)question still re(G)mains.
(C) We shared a brief but magic (F)song,
By the (G)first leaves of au(F)tumn
You were (C) gone. (hold)

Not until the (F)rain (G)touched my (C)face,
Not until the (F)first leaf (G)fell from (C)place,
Not until that (F)moment (G)did I (Am)see
Never rea(F)lized what you (G)meant to (C)me.

From the days you filled with sunlight
And the (F)laughter in your (G)eyes,
To the (C)making of the breaking
The (F)day we said good(G)bye,
(C) And the very words cut to the (F)bone,
By the (G)first leaves of au(F)tumn
You were (C) gone. (hold)

Not until my (F)heart´s de(G)fence is (C)down,
Not until some (F)old come-(G)all-ye comes (C)round,
Not until that (F)moment (G)do I (Am)see
(F) What you (G)meant to (C)me.
- Instrumental chorus -

Not until the (F)rain (G)touched my (C)face,
Not until the (F)first leaf (G)fell from (C)place,
Not until that (F)moment (G)did I (Am)see
(F) What you (G)meant to (Am)me. (F) (G)   (C)
