8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
My day dreams lie buried in autumn leaves,  They're covered with autumn rain,
The time is sweet September,  The place, a shady lane,
I'm riding the wings of an autumn breeze,  Back to my memories;
The leaves of brown came tumbling down, remember?
In September, in the rain,
The sun went out just like a dying ember,
That September, in the rain,
To ev'ry word of love I heard you whisper,
The raindrops seemed to play a sweet refrain,
Though Spring is here, to me it's still September,
That September, in the rain.
