or
Carlene Carter

It was sometime late September
The leaves were gold and green
My baby's eyes were the saddest sight I'd ever seen
Two summers back I loved him
Two years I cried and tried
But I tell you, too many teardrops falling down cannot be dried

It's been a long hard fall
Long hard fall
Long hard fall

So something came between us
A feeling cold as ice
By October there was frost and I knew our love was lost
November made me bitter
As the wind blew through my heart
Oh, so empty in the deepest darkest tiny part

It's been a long hard fall
Long hard fall
Long hard fall

There'd be snow come mid-December
And I'll be frozen to the bone
Oh, but by then it will all be over

It's been a long hard fall
It's been a long hard fall
Long hard fall
Long hard fall
It's been a long hard fall
Long hard fall
