A time to be reapin', a time to be sowin'
The green leaves of summer are callin' me home
It was good to be young then in the season of plenty
When the catfish were jumpin' as high as the sky
A time just for plantin', a time just for ploughin'
A time to be courtin' a girl of your own

'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth
And to stand by your wife at the moment of birth
(A time just for plantin', a time just for ploughin')
(A time just for livin', a place for to die)
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth
Now the green leaves of summer are callin' me home

'Twas so good to be young then to be close to the earth
Now the green leaves of summer are callin' me home
The green leaves of summer are callin' me home

Correct variant

A time to be reapin', a time to be sawin'
The green leaves of summer are callin' me home
It was good to be young then in the season of plenty
When the catfish are jumpin' as high as the sky

A time just for plantin' a time just for ploughin'
A time to be courtin' a girl of your own
'Twas so good to be young then to be close to the earth
And to stand by your wife at the moment of birth

A time to be reapin' a time to be sawin'
The green leaves of summer are callin' me home
'Twas so good to be young then with the sweet smell of apples
And the owl in the pine tree akin' his eye

A time just for plantin', a time just for ploughin'
A time just for livin' a place for to die
'Twas so good to be young then to be close to the earth
Now the green leaves of summer are calling me home
