Green Leaves of Summer

by: Peter Paul & Mary

[Em           B]
A time to be reapin'
[  Em          D]
A time to be sowin'
[     G                C]
The green leaves of summer
[     F#        B7]
Are callin' me home
[          E7        Am]
T'was so good to be young then
[       D7         G]
In the season of plenty
[         Em           Am]
When the catfish were jumpin'
[   F#          B]
As high as the sky.


(1st Verse Chords)
A time just for planting
A time just for plowin'
A time to be courtin'
A girl of your own
T'was so good to be young then
To be close to the earth
And to stand by your wife
At the moment of birth.

(1st Verse Chords)
A time to be reapin'
A time to be sowin'
A time just for livin'
A place for to die
T'was so good to be young then
To be close to the earth
Now the green leaves of summer
Are callin' me home.
