1 He left me this morning, was the sixth day of May,

              G                  D                                                  A

    I will wait until September until he comes back this way.

                      D                         A                 G                         D

    And we’ll hear such sweet music as the autumn leaves sway,

Come and dance at the crossroads, come kiss at the post,

                  G                      D                                                A

come and tell me that you love me, that you love me the most.

                 D                       A                         G                D

That you care much more for me than your girl on the coast,

and we’ll both go out walking on Sunday.

                   G                D                                                      A

    and I’ve not let one day pass that I have not looked her way.

                     D                 A                G                  D

    She’s a spring in her step and a smile wide as day,

                    G                  A               D

    and they both go out walking on Sunday.
