A chordA
What happened here
E chordE

As the New York sunset disappeared
B chordB C#m chordC#m
I found an empty garden among the flagstones there
A chordA
Who lived here
E chordE
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
B chordB
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
C#m chordC#m
And now it all looks strange
B/A chordB/AA chordA B chordB E chordE
It's funny how one in- sect can damage so much grain

A chordA
And what's it for
E chordE
This little empty garden by the brownstone door
B chordB
C#m chordC#m
And in the cracks along the sidewalk nothing grows no more
A chordA
Who lived here
E chordE
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
B chordB
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
C#m chordC#mB/A chordB/A A chordA
And we are so amazed we're crippled and we're dazed
B chordBE chordE
A chordA gardener like that one no one can replace


A chordA E chordE
And I've been knocking but no one answers
A chordAC#m chordC#m (G#m chordG#m C#m chordC#m)
And I've been knocking most all the day
F#m chordF#mC#m chordC#m
Oh and I've been calling oh hey hey Johnny
A chordA B chordB E chordE
Can't you come out to play

A chordA
And through their tears
E chordE
Some say he farmed his best in younger years
B chordB
C#m chordC#m
But he'd have said that roots grow stronger if only he could hear
A chordA
Who lived there
E chordE
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
B chordB
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
C#m chordC#m B/A chordB/A A chordA
Now we pray for rain and with every drop that falls
B chordB E chordE
We hear we hear your name

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE

F#m chordF#m A chordA B chordB E chordE
Johnny can't you come out to play in your empty garden

repeat last line and fade
