AUTUMN IN OUR TOWN
Dave Brubeck (m) Iola Brubeck (l)
Ranny Sinclair w The Dave Brubeck Quartet
rec May 20th 1966 (rel 2001)
The village green is golden now,
Autumn leaves flame and flutter down;
October days in golden haze
Drift through our New England town.
Another Autumn, you and I
Christened with love each golden scene,
And our desire was Autumn fire,
As we walked through the village green.
Blow wind, seel where the embers lie;
Go wind, love wasn't meant to die!
Oh falling leaf, oh flaming tree,
Our lovers' dreams are tumbling down;
Come back my love, come back to me,
It's golden Autumn in our town!
