'Tis Autumn Lyrics

Esther Phillips – 'Tis Autumn Lyrics

D D6 Dm+7 Dm6
Old Father time checked, so there'd be no doubt;

AM7 F#m C#m7-5 F#7
Called on the North wind to come on out,

A E D9 B7
Then cupped his hands so proudly to shout,

D9 E7 D9 A
"La-di-dah di-dah-di-dum, 'tis autumn!"


D D6 Dm+7 Dm6
Trees say they're tired, they've born too much fruit;

AM7 F#m C#m7-5 F#7
Charmed on the wayside, there's no dispute.

A E D9 B7
Now shedding leaves, they don't give a hoot --

D9 E7 D9 A
La-di-dah di-dah-di-dum, 'tis autumn!



Bridge:

Em7 A7 G/B A7
Then the birds got together to chirp about the weather

D alt G/B A7 D6
Mmmm - mmm - mmm - mmm.

F#m7 B7 F#m7 B7
After makin' their decision, in birdie-like precision,

E7 F3m B7 E7
Turned about, and made a beeline to the south.



D D6 Dm+7 Dm6
My holding you close really is no crime --

AM7 F#m C#m7-5 F#7
Ask the birds and the trees and old Father Time.

A E D9 B7
It's just to help the mercury climb.

D9 E7 D9 A
La-di-dah di-dah-di-dum, 'tis autumn.



(Instrumental Interlude - first 2 lines of verse)


A E D9 B7
It's just to help the mercury climb.

D9 E7 F7 A
La-di-dah di-dah-di-dum, 'tis au - tumn.
