JOHNNY'S GARDEN- Stephen Stills and Manassas

G5  C/G  G7sus  C/G  G5  C/G  G7sus  C/G

           G5  C/G G7sus      C/G
There's a place  I can get to
           G5  C/G       G7sus     C/G
Where I'm safe  from the city blues
          G5  C/G        G7sus  C/G G5
And it's green  and it's quiet
 C/G                  G7sus      C/G
Only trouble was I had to buy it

CHORUS:
             C      Csus2 C6+9 Csus2 C Em Em7
And I'll do anything  I   got  to     do
C      Csus2 C6+9 Csus2 C Em
Cut my   hair       and  shine my shoes
Em7  C      Csus2 C6+9 Csus2 C Em
And keep on   singin'   the  blues
 Em7      C      riff               G5   C/G G7sus C/G
If I can stay here     in Johnny's garden

As the swift bird flies over the grasses
Dipping now and then to take his breakfast
Thus I come and go and I travel
But I can watch that bird and unravel ...CHORUS

With his love and his sharing
He puts his life into beauty sharing
And his children are his flowers
And they give me peace in quiet hours ...CHORUS

Listening to the record - I would suggest these chords...
I have not the the time to notate the rhythm - I shall leave that to your instinct.

I find personally find these chords most accessible when using the thumb for G root note.

lel-3---3---3---3---l
lBl-0---1---3---0---l
lGl-0---0---0---0---l
lDl-0---2---3---2---l
lAl-x---x---x---x---l
lEl-3---3---3---3---l

There is also a lead part based around these shapes...

lel-7---8----8---7---l
lBl-8---8----8---8---l
lGl-7---9---10---9---l
lDl------------------l
lAl------------------l
lEl------------------l

The chorus is based around the C - Em chord change with various delicate embellishments, such as the m7 on the E.
