Chords
Transpose:

Song - Last Leaf

I thought Tom Waits had already written some of his most beautiful songs. I was wrong.

Capo 5th

C G C C7I'm the last leaf on the tree
F The autumn took the rest
C AmBut they won't take me
C G CI'm the last leaf on the tree
CWhen the autumn wind blows
AmThey're already gone
FThey flutter to the ground
GCause they can't hang on
CThere's nothing in the world
AmThat I ain't seen
F GI greet all the new ones that are coming in green
I'm the last leaf on the tree The autumn took the rest but they wont take me I'm the last leaf on the tree They say I got staying power Here on the tree But I've been here since Eisenhower And I've out lived even he I'm the last leaf on the tree The autumn took the rest but they won't take me I'm the last leaf on the tree I fight off the snow I fight off the hail Nothing makes me go I'm like some vestigial tail I'll be here through eternity If you want to know how long If they cut down this tree I'll show up in a song I'm the last leaf on the tree The autumn took the rest but they won't take me
C G CI'm the last leaf on the tree
C G CI'm the last leaf on the tree
C G CI'm the last leaf on the tree
Alternatively, if you want to play the song capo'd on the 1st: C = E C7 = E7 G = B F = A Am = Cm
