D                       Cadd9
I see your money on the floor, I felt the pocket change.
       G                                        A7
Though all the feelings that broke through that door
                           D
just didn't seem to be too real.

D                         Cadd9
The yard is nothing but a fence, the sun just hurts my eyes.
        G                         A7                                   D
Somewhere it must be time for penitence.  Gardening at night is never where.


G    A       D       G    A       D       G    A       D
Gardening at night.  Gardening at night.  Gardening at night.


Em                          F#m
The neighbors go to bed at ten.
Em                            F#m
Call the prayer line for a change.
Em                             F#m
The charge is changing every month.
Em                       A           D
They said it couldn't be arranged.
D                        C                                G
We ankled up the garbage sound, but they were busy in the rows.
                           A7                                  D
We fell up, not to see the sun, gardening at night just didn't grow.


D                       Cadd9
I see your money on the floor, I felt the pocket change.
       G                                        A7
Though all the feelings that broke through that door
                           D
just didn't seem to be too real.
  G   A         D      G    A        D     G     A        D
Gardening at night.  Gardening at night.  Gardening at night.


Em                               F#m
Your sister said that you're too young.
Em                                  F#m
They should know they've been there twice.
Em                   F#m
The call was two and fifty-one.
Em                       A        D
They said it couldn't be arranged.


D                       Cadd9
I see your money on the floor, I felt the pocket change.
       G                                        A7
Though all the feelings that broke through that door
                           D
just didn't seem to be too real.
D                        Cadd9                                G
We ankled up the garbage sound, but they were busy in the rows.
                           A7                                  D
We fell up, not to see the sun, gardening at night just didn't grow.

  G   A         D      G    A        D     G     A        D
Gardening at night.  Gardening at night.  Gardening at night.

It was round about midnight. Hipster town.
Imagine going for a walk.
Things get around to taking place. It's not a waste of time.
The rich got a little poorer.
Things get around to taking place. If they're gonna happen at all.
Don't need that jazz.  Don't need that stuff.
It was round about midnight.  Hipster town.
