Autumn leaves, diaries, Tennesse and JeremyBb F Cm Eb
Suddenly, willow trees, memories of JeremyBb F Cm Eb

Like a Galapagos turtle we grow old and stay that way,Bb Eb
Build a nest in the sand dunes, lay our eggs and walk awayBb Eb
I was writing our dreams down, making maps of an unseen planeBb Ab Eb Bb Ab Eb Bb
and I noticed anomalies that you'd rather not see explainedBb Ab Eb Bb Ab Eb F

Autumn leaves, diaries, Tennesse and JeremyBb F Cm Eb

We drove, canopy down, in the scalding rain on the one day we were youngBb F Eb F Ab Eb F
The house we bought was really a lakeCm F
Otters scampered down the hallsCm F
There were whirlpools in the floor and sailsCm F Ab
