Nelson, Willie - Summer of Roses / December Day Lyrics




A short time I have to be with you my love
But a short time is better than no time you see
And I bring to you all my posessions
And would that you'd share them with me
I bring you one springtime of robins
One springtime of robins to sing
I bring you one summer of roses
One summer of roses I bring
I bring you dry leaves of autumn
Dry leaves will be helpful you know
To soften the fall of your snowflakes
When I bring you your winter of snow

This looks like a December day.
This looks like a "time to remember" day.
And I remember the spring, such a sweet tender thing.
And love's summer college,
Where the green leaves of knowledge,
Were waiting to fall with the Fall.

And where September wine,
Numbed the measure of time.
Through the tears of October, now November's over,
And this looks like a December day.

This looks like a December day.
It looks like we've come to the end of the way.
And as my memories race back to love's eager beginning,
Reluctant to play with the thoughts of the ending:
The ending that won't go away.

And as my memories race back to love's eager beginning,
Reluctant to play with the thoughts of the ending:
The ending that won't go away.

And this looks like a December day.

    Bobbie sure needs to get her fair share of praises, she had been there with Will from the start and probably will be there till the end. This is for you Bobbie.

    This is classic Willie Nelson. Great album. Thanks for posting.

  8. John Bruce

    She is so quick its like he is playing two different instruments. I guess I'm not the big Willie fan I thought I was; I had no idea Bobbi, his sister was his piano player. It begins getting clearer as to why his music sounds so damn good!

    Willie's Family Band is one of the best groups of all time. Willie wouldnt be the same without them.

    Does anyone else get the feeling that Willie is telling us good-by?  Love you Willie.

    Patricia Moore

    Bob.Betty Morris NO, NO, NO
    DON'T WRITE, THINK IT. AS WE GROW OLDER WE EACH KNOW THERE ARE LESS TOMORROWS AND MORE YESTERDAY'S AND JUST REMINISCE ABOUT THOSE PAST YEAR'S AND MEMORIES. THAT SIMPLE. I'M ON SHORTER TIME THAN EVER BEFORE.
