'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
