The Last Leaf

by: The Cascades

((INTRO:)) [E---]

[        E                    C#m]
The last leaf clings to the bough
[     E                             Abm]
Just one leaf, that's all there is now
[             A        B]
And my last hope live with that 
[          E          C#m]
  lonely leaf, lonely leaf
[          A]
With the last leaf that clings to
[  E--]
  the bough

[      E                  C#m]
Last summer beneath this tree
[   E                       Abm]
My love said she'd come back to me
[              A        B]
Before the leaves of autumn touched
[        E                  C#m]
  the ground, touched the ground
[          A]
My love promised she's be home-
[  E-]
  ward bound


((CHORUS:))
[     C                D]
Then one by one the leaves
[           E]
  began to fall
[    C                  D]
And now that winter's come to
[ B-break] 
  call


[          E]
The last leaf that clings to 
[    C#m]
  the bough,
[     E]
Just one leaf, that's all there 
[      Abm]
  is now
[              A         B]
Will my last hope fall with that
[          E           C#m]
  lonely leaf, lonely leaf?
[         A              Abm]
With the last leaf, the last leaf
[          A pause         A]
With the last leaf that clings
[          E-C#m]
  to the bough
[ E      C#m   E    C#m]
Bough, bough, bough...  (Fade)
