Intro:  ||:  Em     E   :||


   Em          B7        Em           D7
A time to be plantin', a time to be sowin', 

      G              Am         F#7       B7
The green leaves of summer are callin' me home.

          E7         Am                 D7        G
'Twas so good to be young then, in the season of plenty,

         Em             Am6       C7           B7
When the cat fish were jumpin' as high as the sky.


   Em            B7          Em            D7
A time just for plantin', a time just for plowin',

  G            Am        F#7          B7
A time to be courtin' a girl of your own.

          E7         Am                D7             G
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth;

          Em             Am         Em   -  Am6  B7  Em -  E   Em -  E
Now the green leaves of summer are call  -  in'  me home.


   Em          B7        Em          D7
A time to be reapin', a time to be sowin',

      G              Am         F#7        B7
The green leaves of summer are callin' me home.

        E7          Am                  D7            G
It was good to be young then, with the sweet smell of apples,

         Em        Am6          C7          B7
And the owl in the pine tree a-winkin' his eye.


   Em            B7          Em            D7
A time just for plantin', a time just for plowin',

   G             Am        F#7          B7
A time just for livin', a place for to die.

          E7         Am                D7           G
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth;

         Em             Am          Em   - Am6  B7  Em 
Now the green leaves of summer are call  -  in' me home.


Coda:

           E7         Am               D7             G
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth;

          Em             Am         Em   - Am6   B7  Em  -  E
Now the green leaves of summer are call  -  in'  me home.
