lyrics

The leaves that were green turn to gold
In the fall of the year in New Mexico
It's not hard to see the beauty in a canyon of a desert valley

It's in the still autumn trees, it's in the still autumn grass,
It's in the still autumn air

The wood pile is high outside the door,
endlessly waiting to keep an old man warm;
it's not hard to see the beauty outside his door.

It's in the old man's eyes, it's in the old man's hands,
It's in the old man's life.
It's in the still autumn trees, it's in the still autumn sky.

And the sky that was still turns to grey -
Mean rain's coming; mean lightning's a-comin'
It's not hard to see the beauty in a storm in a desert valley

It's in the fierce autumn night, it's in the flash of light
that set fire to the trees.
It's on the burning mountain.

And the leaves of gold fall to the ground
The wind blows through them to make their sweet sound
And their golden movement beneath our toes.

...It's not hard to see the beauty
