Empty Garden

Song Author Elton John Submitted by: Anonymous
[A]What happened here
As the New York sunset disa[E]ppeared
I foun[B]d an empty garden among the flagstones the[C#m]re    
Who [A]lived here
He must have been a gardener that cared a[E] lot
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good c[B]rop  
And now it all looks st[C#m]range    
It's funny how one i[B/A]n-     [A] sect can d[B]amage so much gr[E]ain  

And [A]what's it for
This little empty garden by the brownstone do[E]or  
And in the cracks along the side[B]walk nothing grows[C#m] no more
Who [A]lived here
He must have been a gardener that cared a l[E]ot  
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good c[B]rop  
And [C#m]we are so amazed we're crippled and we're da[B/A]zed     [A]    
A gardener l[B]ike that one no one can rep[E]lace

And I've [A]been knocking but no one answ[E]ers  
And I've [A]been knocking most all the d[C#m]ay     [(g#m]    [C#m)]    
Oh and I've [F#m]been calling oh hey hey Jo[C#m]hnny    
Can't you come[A] ou  [B]t to pl[E]ay  

And [A]through their tears
Some say he farmed his best in younger yea[E]rs  
But he'd have said that roots grow strong[B]er if only he co[C#m]uld hear
Who l[A]ived there
He must have been a gardener that cared a[E] lot
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good [B]crop
Now we pray for[C#m] rain, and with every drop that fa[B/A]lls     [A]    
We [B]hear, we hear you[E]r name

And I've [A]been knocking but no one answ[E]ers  
And I've [A]been knocking most all the d[C#m]ay     [(g#m]    [C#m)]    
Oh and I've [F#m]been calling oh hey hey Jo[C#m]hnny    
Can't you come[A] ou  [B]t to pl[E]ay  

[F#m]Johnny, [A]can't you come o[B]ut to play in your empty gar[E]den  

What happened here
As the New York sunset disappeared
I found an empty garden among the flagstones there
Who lived here
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
And now it all looks strange
It's funny how one in- sect can damage so much grain

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

And I've been knocking but no one answers
And I've been knocking most all the day [(G#m] [C#m)]
Oh and I've been calling oh hey hey Johnny
Can't you come out to play

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

And I've been knocking but no one answers
And I've been knocking most all the day [(G#m] [C#m)]
Oh and I've been calling oh hey hey Johnny
Can't you come out to play

Johnny, can't you come out to play in your empty garden
