The Gardner
By: The Tallest Man on Earth

This is my first tab, and I think it’s all correct. If you see a mistake or have any questions, email me at papershop123@gmail.com

The progressions repeat alternating just like the first and second verse. Listen to the song for strumming patterns, and changes.

Open D Tuning: DADF#AD

Capo 6th fret

Bm7 -  D (riff)

D             D/C#            Bmin	 Bmin7(2)
I sense a runner in the garden
G                             		         A7   A6
Although my judgment's known to fail
D	         D/C#		Bmin	Bmin7(2)
Once built a steamboat in a meadow
G                       	        A7	A6
Cause I'd forgotten how to sail

G                 A7             D		(riff)
I know the runner's going to tell you
G                     A7                    D	(riff)
There ain't no cowboy in my hair
G                 A7                   D		(riff)
So now he's buried by the daisies
G                         	       A7                
So I could stay the tallest man in your eyes, babe

I sense a spy up in the chimney
From all the evidence I've burned
I guess he'll read it in the smoke now
And soon to ashes I'll return

I know the spy is going to tell you
It's not my flag up in the pole
So now he's buried by the lilies
So I could stay forever more in your eyes, babe

I sense a leak inside my phone now
From all the lies I have told
I know he has your private number
And soon he'll make that vicious call

I know the leak is going to tell you
There ain't now puppy in your leash
So now he'll fertilize the roses
So I could stay the king you see
In your eyes, babe (x2)

Interlude:  Dmute (4 Bars) D (4 Bars)

Dmute		D/C#mute	         Bm	
So now we're dancing through the garden
G			      A7	      A6
And what a garden I have made
Dmute		D/C#mute	       Bm
And now that death will grow my jasmine
G			A7	A6
I find it soothing I'm afraid

G		A7		D (riff)
Now there is no need for suspicion
G		A7		D (riff)
There ain't no frog kissing your hand
G		A7		D (riff)
I won't be lying when I tell you
G			    A7
That I'm a gardner I'm a man
A7		D (riff)
In your eyes babe (x2)
A7	          Bmin
In your eyes babe.

I think the first D that he does looks like:

And then the D/C# looks like

Just a slight improvement, I think. Great job getting the chords and figuring out the tuning though! Really good job.
