This is in regards to the request by Cliff Gholson for the song that is in
the movie "The Alamo". I think this is what he wants.
The Green Leaves of Summer (unknown author, I never found out)
A (Em) time to be (B7) reaping, a (Em) time to be (D7) sowing,
the (G) green leaves of (Am) summer are (F#7) calling me (B7) home.
It was (E7) good to be (Am) young then, in the (D7) season of (G) plenty,
When the (Em) catfish were (Am) jumping as (C7) high as the (B7) sky.
A (Em) time just for (B7) planting, a (Em) time just for (D7) ploughing,
a (Em) time to be (Am) courting a (F#7) girl that you (B7) love.
'Twas so (E7) good to be (Am) young then, to be (D7) close to the (G) earth,
to be (Em) there at her (Am) side at the (Em) mo-(Am)-ment (B7) of (Em) birth.
There might be more verses, these are the two that I have. Haunting melody...
