Summer Side Of Life
Gordon Lightfoot
He came down through the fields of green
On the summer side of life.
His love was ripe
There were no illusions
On the summer side of life.
Only tenderness
And if you saw him now, you'd wonder why
He would cry, the whole day long.

There were young girls everywhere
On the summer side of life.
They talked all night
To the young men that they knew
On the summer side of life.
Goin' off to fight
And if you saw them now, you'd wonder why
They would cry, the whole day long.

He came down through fields of green
On the summer side of life.
He prayed all night
Then he walked into a house
Where love had been misplaced,
His chance to waste.
And if you saw him now, you'd wonder why
He would cry, the whole day long.
And if you saw him now, you'd wonder why?
