Back in 1977, I wrote a song about Autumn.

The scene described therein is focused upon a woman who, while watching autumn leaves fall, is drawn into an old memory of love.

“She sits down on the windowsill and

opens up her mind to fill

it with a thought of far away. . .

a man she knew; she met him on a streetcar

so far away. It was a day. . .

a day like today.”

Soon thereafter, I was able to record the song in my Something for Everyone vinyl LP album.

Perhaps you would enjoy listening to the wistful tune: Portrait of a Lady

King of Soul
