[Verse 1]
   D               G           A     D
oh Ruthie with the summer heat dying down
        G        A       D        
there’s no rules in this town
         G          A        Bm
with the brush alongside the road
   G     A        D
we got nowhere to go
    G      A           D
and as the warm fronts scatter
   G       A     D
we tend to daily matters
        G           A       Bm
and the first frost lets us know
             G       A    D
what we will have to undergo
   D        G       A       D
oh Ruthie I see you working hard
   G                A        D
at home and on your family’s farm
       G     A         Bm
oh and I can work hard too
       G      A        D
Ruthie let me work for you

[Verse 2]
   D                 G             A           D
oh Ruthie both of us know how it’s been a hard year
            G         A         D
and how the future is still not clear
    G              A      Bm
how trouble always hovers near
           G       A     D
and how we have to persevere
          G               A      D                   
so let us backfill what’s been defiled
            G     A       D
and let the wilderness be wild
             G            A          Bm
yeah let all four seasons have their say
       G        A      D
as the last six months decay
   D                G     A     D
oh Ruthie I’ve been troubled in mind
          G   A   D
I’ve been serving time
         G          A       Bm
for some mysterious unknown crime
   G                         A        D       
oh Ruthie let us leave these troubles behind

[Verse 3]
   D                   G                A D
oh Ruthie none of this comes as much of a surprise
          G             A       D
still the tears well up in your eyes
            G           A     Bm
but all the madness the world employs
            G             A  D
will not be strong enough to destroy
           G         A       D
all of the sweetness we have gained
          G      A         D
with your garden plots and rain
          G           A   Bm
with your apple trees and all
       G       A           D
we can harvest through the fall
             G         A         D
oh Ruthie oh won’t you take this ring
            G        A    D
come let us marry by next spring
           G                  A      Bm
I know the weather won’t make up its mind
       G             A       D
oh but Ruthie I have made up mine.
