Autumn Leaves

by Johnny Mercer

John Herndon "Johnny" Mercer (November 18, 1909 – June 25, 1976) was an American lyricist, songwriter and singer. Mercer was also a co-founder of Capitol Records.




The falling leaves drift by the window,
The autumn leaves of red and gold.
I see your lips, the summer kisses,
The sunburned hands I used to hold.

Since you went wawy the days grow long,
And soon I'll hear old winter's song.
But I miss you most of all my darling
When Autumn leaves start to fall.

Written by: Johnny Mercer, Jacques Andre Marie Prevert, Joseph Kosma
