He came down through fields of green
On the summer side of life
His love was ripe
There was no illusions
On the summer side of life
Only tenderness

And if you saw him now
You'd wonder why he would cry
A whole day long

There was 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
A whole day long

He came down through field 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
A whole day long

And if you saw him now
You'd wonder why

And if you saw him now
You'd wonder why

And if you saw him now
You'd wonder why
