Green Leaves Of Summer Lyrics - Eddy Arnold

Review The Song (1)



A time to be reaping, a time to be sowing
The green leaves of summer are calling me home
It was good to be young then in the season of plenty
When the catfish were jumpin' as high as the sky
A time just for plantin', a time just for ploughin'/plowin'
A time to be courtin' a girl of your own

'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth
And to stand by your wife at the moment of birth
(A time just for plantin', a time just for ploughin'/plowin'
A time just for livin', a place for to die)
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth
Now the green leaves of summer are calling me home

'Twas so good to be young then to be close to the earth
Now the green leaves of summer are calling me home
The green leaves of summer are calling me home

A time to be reaping a time to be sawing
The green leaves of summer are calling me home
It was good to be young then in the season of plenty
When the catfish are jumping as high as the sky

A time just for plantin' a time just for ploughin'
A time to be courtin' a girl of your own
'Twas so good to be young then to be close to the earth
And to stand by your wife at the moment of birth

A time to be reapin' a time to be sawin'
The green leaves of summer are calling me home
'Twas so good to be young then with the sweet smell of apples
And the owl in the pine tree akinking his eye.

A time just for planting a time just for ploughin'
A time just for living a place for to die
'Twas so good to be young then to be close to the earth
Now the green leaves of summer are calling me home.

I work at a place that takes care of people that need support. Mentally retarded or as we say MR. My client there asked me today if I knew the words to this song, said it was always playing on John Wayne's movie The Alamo. He wants to make something for his brother that takes care of him. Love the words and thank you for having them so I could write them down for him...I promised. He is a kind soul and only wants to make a gift for his brother to show how much he loves him. Thanks again.ADG
