When Autumn Leaves Begin To Fall

print

When autumn leaves begin to fall
It’s then I hear my mother call
Her tender voice I hear in song
I ask forgiveness for each wrong

When a boy of only fifteen years
I left home in seach of new frontiers
A house of gold I then did wed
A wall of stone I built within

Now my mother she has passed away
Not one kindness did I show or say
For all the wealth I might have shared
Mother never knew I cared
