 A(2)     G6+9                                     A(2)
I awoke today and found the frost perched on the town
A(2)              A        G6+9                   A(2)
It hovered in a frozen sky and it gobbled summer down
 D                   C
When the sun turns traitor cold
     D                   C             E     E5addD/B
And all the trees are shivering in a naked row
   A                 G                       A(2)
I get the urge for going but I never seem to go

CHORUS #1:
       G       D         A              G       D        A
And I get the urge for going, when the meadow grass is turning brown
 G     D        A                A        G     A
Summertime is falling down and winter's closing in

I had a me a man in summertime, he had summer colored skin
And not another girl in town that darling's heart could win
But when the leaves fell on the ground
And bully winds come around and pushed them face down in the snow
He got the urge for goin', and I had to let him go ...CHORUS

CHORUS #2:
He got the urge for going when the meadow grass was turning brown
And summertime was falling down and winter was closing in

Now the warriors of winter they give a cold triumphant shout
All that stays is dying, all that lives is getting out
See the geese in chevron flight
Flapping and a-racin' on before the snow
They got the urge for going and they've got the wings so they can go

CHORUS #3:
They get the urge for going when the meadow grass is turning brown
Summertime is falling down and winter's closing in  ...REPEAT INTRO

I'll ply the fire with kindling, I'll pull the blankets to my chin
I'll lock the vagrant winter out and I'll bolt my wandering in
I'd like to call back summertime
And have her stay for just another month or so
But she's got the urge for going so I guess she'll have to go

CHORUS #4:
She's gets the urge for going when the meadow grass is turning brown
And all her empire's falling down and winter's closing in
And I get the urge for going when the meadow grass is turning brown
And summertime is falling down  ...REPEAT INTRO
