Leaves In The Wind Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords
Leaves in the wind By Johnny McEvoy. 4/4/ timing.

The chords were worked out by Marc. This song was also covered by singer / songwriter Isla Grant [ lyrics ] .

[D]Old Rosie Atkinson live all alone
In her [A]house at the end of our [D]street
She wears an old hat with a long silver pin
And [A]faded blue shoes on her [D]feet
And a [A]long flowery dress that [D]must have looked nice
On the [A]day her love marched a[D]way
To fight in the war- to end all the wars
In a [A]cold land so [A7]far, far a[D]way

[G]Rosie, he’s gone now, he’s [D]not coming home now
[A]Like all those lonely young [D]men
The [G]fathers and brothers, the [D]sons and the lovers
They’ve [E]fallen like leaves in the [A]wind

Now the [D]war has long passed, he never returned
The [A]years have now faded her [D]eyes
But the love in her heart is as warm and as strong
As it [A]was when he made her his [D]bride.
[A]In Flanders’ fields where [D]red poppies grow
From the [A]hearts of many young [D]men
There sleeps Rosie’s lover of long, long ago
She [A]never did [A7]see him a[D]gain


Now [D]old Rosie Atkinson lives all alone
In her [A]house at the end of our [D]street
And the children make fun of her long flowery dress
And the [A]faded blue shoes on her [D]feet
Thought they [A]laugh and the jibe at her [D]funny old ways
She [A]seems not to hear, not to [D]see
She just dreams of the love she was never to know
And the [A]times that were [A7]never to [D]be

[A]Leaves in the [D]wind
Repeat Intro
