Springtime Promises

This song is by The Pentangle and appears on the album Basket of Light (1969).

Summertime is with us once again
Flowers bloomin' everywhere again
And the cold days of winter are behind us now
And the springtime promises all come true

Trees and grass and bushes green again
The sky so blue, I don't remember when
The cold days of winter took the sun away
But the springtime promises all came true
It's summer time now so please don't throw 't away

Winter will be with us once again
Flowers die'n everywhere again
And the warm days of summer will be far behind
And the springtime promises soon forgot

Grass and bushes withered, and the trees are bare
Dark and cloudy skies and people in despair
And the warm days of summer seem so far away
And the spring time promises still forgot
It's wintertime so you've got to wait awhile
For the springtime promises to come true

Now the new born year has come once more
Gentle showers awake us as before1
It's the time when all promises are now made true
And the springtime sun returns anew

Soon the earth will turn to green again
Flowers will burst forth soon to bloom again
The warm days of spring time tell us all is love
Can't you feel your promises will be true
It's spring time now
Be happy today
