Empty Garden  -  Elton John

[Verse 1]
A
What happened here
                                   E
As the New York sunset disappeared
                          B                                         C#m
I found an empty garden among the flagstones there
    A
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          B                      E
It's funny how one in-    sect can damage so much grain

    A
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
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  B       E
Can't you come out   to play

[Verse 2]
    A
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
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

[REPEAT CHORUS TWICE]

F#m     A                                  B                             E
Johnny, can't you come out to play in your empty garden

(repeat last line and fade)
