Traditional
  1. I'll sing you my October song
    There is no song before it,
    The words and tune are not my own
    My joy and sorrow bore it.
  2. Beside the sea the brambly briar
    In the still of evening,
    Birds fly out from behind the sun
    And with them I'll be leaving.
  3. The fallen leaves a-jewel the ground
    They know the art of dying,
    And leave with joy their glad gold hearts
    In scarlet shadows lying.
  4. When hunger calls my weary footsteps home
    The morning follows after,
    I swim the seas within my mind
    The pine trees laugh green laughter.
  5. I met a man whose name was Time;
    He said I must be going,
    But just how long ago that was
    I have no way of knowing.
  6. Sometimes I could murder Time
    When my heart is aching
    But mostly I just like to stroll along
    The path that he is taking.
