I awoke today and found the frost perched on the town
                xx5430                             xx7650
It hovered in a frozen sky, then it gobbled summer down
D                    C
When the sun turns traitor cold 
     D                 C              E        022130
and all the trees are shivering in a naked row
 A                   G                       007650
I get the urge for going but I never seem to go


  G        D         A               G      D        A             
I get the urge for going  When the meadow grass is turning brown
G      D         A                A         G    A
Summertime is falling down and winter is closing in


xx7650    xx5430                                    xx7650
I had me a man in summertime  He had summer-colored skin
               XX5430                                 XX7650
And not another girl in town  My darling's heart could win
D                         C     
But when the leaves fell on the ground, and
D                   C                    E                     022130
Bully winds came around, pushed them face down in the snow
   A                  G                         007650
He got the urge for going  And I had to let him go

    G        D        A
He got the urge for going,  
           G      D         A
When the meadow grass was turning brown
 G      D         A               A         G      A
Summertime was falling down and winter was closing in


xx7650              xx5430                             xx7650
Now the warriors of winter they gave a cold triumphant shout
                      xx5430                           xx7650
And all that stays is dying, all that lives is getting out
D                  C
See the geese in chevron flight
   D           C           E              02213
 flapping and a-racing on before the snow
        A                  G
They've got the urge for going, 
                                   007650
& they've got the wings so they can go


      G        D      A
They get the urge for going
           G     D        A
When the meadow grass is turning brown
  G     D      A                 A        G      A
Summertime is falling down and winter is closing in  (REPEAT INTRO)


xx7650                  xx5430                                      007650
I'll ply the fire with kindling now I'll pull the blankets up to my chin
     005430                                            007650
I'll lock the vagrant winter out and bolt my wandering in
D                      C
I'd like to call back summertime and 
  D                 C           E           022130
have her stay for just another month or so
           A                G                              007650
But she's got the urge for going so I guess she'll have to go


     G         D        A               G      D      A
She gets the urge for going when the meadow grass is turning brown 
       G        D        A           A      G       A
 And all her empire's falling down winters closing in.
  G        D         A              G       D        A
I get the urge for going when the meadow grass is turning brown
  G     D       A
summertime is falling down.  (INTRO)
