When The Leaves Come Tumbling Down

When The Leaves Come Tumbling Down

Year 1922

Words and music by Richard Howard

Leo Feist Inc.
Feist Building
New York

  First Verse
Autumn, Autumn, look what you've done, You've made a baby of me, Autumn, Autumn, your setting sun Pictures a sad memory. Whenever leaves begin to fall, Home again I seem to be:

Second Verse
Autumn, Autumn, seems like you know, You took my best pal from me, Autumn, Autumn, long, long ago Now you feel sorry I see. I know your leaves are just your tears, Falling in sweet sympathy.

Chorus
I get so blue thru and thru when the leaves come a tumbling down from the trees, down thru the breeze, I always sigh and I cry when the sun says "Goodbye" to the birds and the bees, their sweet melodies, I never shed a tear when the summer days are here, But when it's autumn time, Every thought of mine, seems so dark and drear, I always sing that lonesome Spring Song melody because you see, It makes me think of someone i na gingham gown in my home town, I hear my old girl say a pray'r beside my mother's vacant chair, I get so blue thru and thru When the leaves come a tumbling down.

Leave Me With A Smile

Leave Me With A Smile

Year 1911

By Earl Burtnett and Charles Koehler

Waterson, Berlin and Snyder Co.
Strand Theater Building
Broadway at 47th Street
New York

  First Verse
Just like the sunrise, you came to me it seems, Just like the sunrise, you woke me from my dreams. You were my sunshine, in days that used to be; I await the sunset, for now you're leaving me.

Second Verse
Your smiles are sunshine upon on a rainy day, They bring me gladness, and drive my blues away. Before you go, dear, just smile once more for me; It will always be, dear, My treasured memory.

Chorus
Tho' it's time for parting, and my tears are starting, Leave me with a smile. Tho' your heart may cry, dear; When you say goodbye, dear, Leave me with a smile. Maybe it's forever, So while we're together, For a little while; Hold me like a flower, For one little hour, And leave me with a smile.

Many's The Time

Many's The Time

Year 1922

Words by Lester M. Stroube
Music by Walter A. Stroube

Ultra Music Pub. Co.
Hammond, Ind.

  First Verse
Last night dear heart while I lay sleeping, I thought I heard you softly weeping, And although t'was but a dream, I held you in my arms it seemed, Just as I did in happy days gone by.

Second Verse
Your smiles bring gladness like the sunshine, Your absence only makes my heart pine, Time goes by and still I find, That you are always on my mind. I'm coming back to claim you just because.

Chorus
Many's the time you told me you loved me, Many's the time I pressed you to my breast, In the golden summer time when you promised to be mine, We sealed it with a fond carress Many's the time we strolled through the wild wood. Many's the time our hearts were filled with glee, While the old moon softly shone. Down the lane that leads to home. Many's the time you whispered love to me.
