"Autumn Harvest Blues"

by Jon Shepherd

(In swing 4/4 time. 2 bar snare drum Intro)

Shoo-bie Doo Wop,

Shoo-bie Doo Wop Wop

Shoo-bie Doo Wop, Wah! 

Shoo-bie Doo Wop,

Shoo-bie Doo Wop Wop

Shoo-bie Doo Wop, Wah!

 

Autumn Har-vest

Trees of red and gold

And the crops are ripe.

Farmers keep them safe

From the icy frost

There’ll be food to last ’til Spring.

 

Autumn Chill-ness. 

A shiver in the air

And a misty breeze.

Chil-dren kick the leaves 

As they crunch their way

To school.

 

Now the Summer’s

Packed it’s bags

And Winter looms

We’ll wrap ourselves up warm 

And wait for Spring’s new blooms

Let’s give thanks

for the Aut-umn crops

They never let us down.

Shoo-bie Doo Wop,

Shoo-bie Doo Wop Wop

Shoo-bie Doo Wop, Wah!

 

Autumn Bleakness

Darkness closes in

And the rain does it’s thing

Want to shut myself away

And hibernate ’til Spring.

Autumn Har-vest

Trees of red and gold

And the crops are ripe.

Farmers keep them safe

From the icy frost

There’ll be food to last ’til Spring.

Now the Summer’s packed it’s bags

And Winter looms

We’ll wrap ourselves up warm 

And wait for Spring’s new blooms

Let’s give thanks for the Aut-umn crops

They never let us down.

When I get the Autumn blues…yeah!

When I get the Autumn blues…yeah!

The Autumn blues have got me...

And they won’t let me go.

The cold and damp just get me down

But one thing I know.

That Harvest time provides our food

I realise I shouldn’t be sad

So wrap up warm and waterproof

It’s time to be glad!

 

Shoo-bie Doo Wop,

Shoo-bie Doo Wop Wop

Shoo-bie Doo Wop, Wah! 

Shoo-bie Doo Wop,

Shoo-bie Doo Wop Wop

Shoo-bie Doo Wop, Wah!

YEAH!
