The Red Maple Leaves

The Red Maple Leaves

(Jimmy Kennedy / Will Grosz)

Lew Stone & His Band

Oh! The Red Maple Leaves
Were falling on the day I found you
How I wish my arms were around you, like
The Red Maple Leaves

Now my heart ever dreams
But still the memory brings me pleasure
Oh if I'd one kiss to treasure
With The Red Maple Leaves

We gathered leaves to press them
As lovers sometimes do
You're gone but I caress them
There all I have of you

Just the Red Maple Leaves
And when they come again you'll fine me
Where I left my heart behind me
Amid The Red Maple Leaves
