Dm
Time, time, time,
             C
See what's become of me
        Bb
While I looked around
            Am
For my possibilities.
         C
I was so hard to please.

      Dm
Look around,
            C
Leaves are brown,
         Bb      A7            Dm
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter.

Hear the Salvation Army band.
Down by the riverside's
Bound to be a better ride
Than what you've got planned.
Carry your cup in your hand.

And look around.
Leaves are brown.
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter.

Hang on to your hopes, my friend.
That's an easy thing to say,
But if your hopes should pass away
Simply pretend
That you can build them again.

Look around,
The grass is high,
The fields are ripe,
It's the springtime of my life.

Bb                           F   Fmaj7
   Seasons change with the scenery;
                  C9
Weaving time in a tapestry.
                     Dm A7  Dm C
Won't you stop and remember me
                        Bb
At any convenient time?
Funny how my memory skips
Looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme.

Drinking my vodka and lime,
I look around,
Leaves are brown,
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter.
