Description
October is very much HERE. Wrote the lyric, then discovered a 2-bar GarageBand piano loop that inspired me to work it into a song. It's a "Hallowe'en Carol" in a Mel Tormé flavor, maybe?

Lyrics
When October Comes Around

The last sunny day of the season
The last picnic out in the park
The leaves are fallin’
and the fire is callin’
It’s getting’ mighty cold after dark

We’ll soon wake up in the morning
To find there is snow on the ground
The wind is stronger,
and nights are longer
When October comes around

Autumn smells are everywhere
And the chill is in the air
The wheel of time moves round again
The summer now is at its end
The leaves in many colors raining down
When October comes around

Pull out heavy shirts and warm fuzzy sweaters
Dig out the hats and the gloves
The rain is fallin’
Jack Frost is callin’
Cuddle with the one that you loves

Enjoy the fruits of the harvest
And gather your friends all around
Now fall’s fortune finds you
With summer behind you
When October comes around

Autumn smells are everywhere
And the chill is in the air
The wheel of time moves round again
The summer now is at its end
The leaves in many colors raining down
When October comes around

Nice song Dave
You've got a lot of writing skills my friend, and it shows. Love the way you kept this simple and uncluttered. Makes for a nice cozy and personal little seasonal song.

Very nicely done Dave

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
