Jesse Winchester (born James Ridout Winchester; May 17, 1944) is an American musician and songwriter who was born and raised in the southern United States. To avoid the Vietnam War draft he moved to Canada in 1967, which is where and when he began his career as a solo artist. His highest charting recordings were of his own tunes, "Yankee Lady" in 1970 and "Say What" in 1981. He became a Canadian citizen in 1973, gained amnesty in the U.S. in 1977 and resettled there in 2002. more »

Oh, yellow autumn moon
You find me blue tonight
What with the summer gone
What with the fading light

No sails upon the lake
No children on the shore
No funny sun-burned nose
No little country store

I'll miss the sunny days
I'll miss the rainy days

And you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
Yeah you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
Oh you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
Yeah you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl

Oh, you're a silly man
Don't you know anything
We're gonna stay in touch
We'll give you all a ring

We'll get the pictures out
We'll pass each one around
Our fire on the beach
My goodness, you were brown

And they will live again
We'll make them live again

For you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
Yeah you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
Oh you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
Yeah you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl

You don't know how I feel
I never told you
Oh, I was much too shy
So I'll never hold you

I hide my heart away
I have my reasons
I have my memories
Of when love was in season

You can forget the past
It's only cause to cry
Soon as a love appears
It's time to say goodbye

Wipe all the tears away
They don't do any good
You put me from your mind
Just like I knew you would

Smile when you hear my name
Why can't I do the same?

For you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
Yeah you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
Oh you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
Yeah you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
Oh you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
Yeah you, you, I'm gonna miss you, girl
