THE LAST LEAF
The Cascades (Chandler-McKendry)
E C#mThe last leaf clings to the bough
E G#mJust one leaf, that's all there is now
A BAnd my last hope lives with that
E C#m lonely leaf, lonely leaf
A E-With the last leaf that clings to the bough.
E C#mLast summer beneath this tree
E G#mMy love said she'd come back to me
A BBefore the leaves of autumn touched
E C#m the ground, touched the ground
A EMy love promised she's be homeward bound.
C D E Then one by one the leaves began to fall,
C D B-break And now that winter's come to call.
E C#mThe last leaf that clings to the bough
E G#mJust one leaf, that's all there is now.
A BWill my last hope fall with that
E C#m lonely leaf, lonely leaf?
A G#mWith the last leaf, the last leaf,
A pause A E- C#mWith the last leaf that clings to the bough
E C#m E C#mBough, bough, bough . . . (FADE)
