KICKIN' THE LEAVES
Words and Music by Greg Garrett and Mary Cole.
© 2000 Mary Cole and Greg Garrett,

Well, I'm just kickin' the leaves by the side of the street.
All of my cares are dropping 'round my feet.
I'm just kickin' the leaves and ev'rybody I meet
Wonders why I'm kickin' by the side of the street.

Walking alone under the boughs of a tree
The cares of the world are what so many see.
The money you owe - it seems indefinitely -
The smoke you can't have and the job you won't leave.

( Refrain But I'm just kickin? the leaves )

I just walk along and think what I please
I'm just walking along and I'm kickin' the leaves.
Troubles come and go along with the breeze.
I'm just walking along and I'm kickin' the leaves.

Further along you think that things are okay
That's why you go along every day.
No pats on the back, no, and no raise in pay.
No bed of roses for you anyway.

( Refrain But I'm just kickin? the leaves )

You could join me while I kick away
We would make a break from the fray.
Leaves fall to ground and then what would you say
To kickin' leaves and all your other troubles away?

( Refrain I'm just... )

Walking alone under the boughs of a tree
The cares of the world are slippin' 'way from me.
The leaves keep on coming indefinitely
Better than roses and the way it should be.

( Refrain So I'm just.. )
