Leaves Don't Drop, They Just Let Go chords - Carrie Newcomer

Carrie Newcomer Lyrics


            By Carrie Newcomer and Michael Mains
On the recording the guitar sound is created by using two capos. A full capo is on the
2nd fret and a capo that covers only the G&D strings in on the 4th fret.
If you are playing the song on piano or on a guitar in standard tuning the chords below
work.

The truth I knew when I was eight.
My dad swam the length of Spirit Lake.
It must have been a million miles.
ThisI knew was true.
My mother sang while hangin' clothes.
Her notes weren't perfect heaven knows.
But heaven opened anyway.
And this I knew was true.

Chorus: Leaves don't drop they just let go,
And make a place for seeds to grow.
Every season brings a change, A seed is what a tree contains, To die and live is life's refrain. I left her with some groceries, Said, "Check the oil and call me please.” She said " Hey, ma I'll be just fine." This I knew was true. Chorus: I've traveled through my history, From certainty to mystery. God speaks in rhyme in paradox. This I know is true. www.carrienewcomer.com
