Empty Garden

	  		
      A/E 
What happened here 
                                   E 
As the New York sunset disappeared 
                            B                                      C#m 
I found an empty garden among the flagstones there 
    A/E 
Who lived here 
                                                     E 
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot 
                                                       B 
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop 
                                C#m 
And now it all looks strange 
                         B/A     A              B7               E 
It's funny how one in-    sect can damage so much grain 
     A/E 
And what's it for 
                                             E 
This little empty garden by the brownstone door 
                                           B                               C#m 
And in the cracks along the sidewalk nothing grows no more 
     A/E 
Who lived here 
                                                      E 
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot 
                                                      B 
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop 
                      C#m                                               B/A  A 
And we are so amazed we're crippled and we're dazed 
                             B                              E 
A gardener like that one no one can replace 

Chorus: 
                        A                            E 
And I've been knocking but no one answers 
                       A                           C#m  (G#m  C#m) 
And I've been knocking most all the day 
                         F#m                       C#m 
Oh and I've been calling oh hey hey Johnny 
                        A    B7      E 
Can't you come out        to play 
     A/E 
And through their tears 
                                               E 
Some say he farmed his best in younger years 
                                                    B                              C#m 
But he'd have said that roots grow stronger if only he could hear 
         A/E 
Who lived there 
                                                       E 
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot 
                                                      B 
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop 
                     C#m                                        B/A  A 
Now we pray for rain, and with every drop that falls 
        B                        E 
We hear, we hear your name 

**Chorus Twice 
F#m     A                                  B                            E 
Johnny, can't you come out to play in your empty garden 
(Repeat Last Line And Fade)
