Comments: This tab is from a live session that can be found here:

The album version uses capo 6 and tunes the high E string up two steps to F#,
but frankly, this version sounds almost identical and is very easy to play.
Have fun!


Tuning: DADEAD
Capo 7

I sense a runner in the garden   Although my judgement's known to fail
Once built a steamboat in a meadow    'Cause I'd forgotten how to sail

So I could stay the tallest man in your eyes, babe

 -VERSE 2-
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

 -CHORUS 2-
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

 -VERSE 3-
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

 -CHORUS 3-
I know the leak is going to tell you 
There ain't no puppy in your leash
So now he'll fertilize the roses 
So I could stay the king you see

 -VERSE 4-
So now we're dancing through the garden
And what a garden I have made
And now that death will grow my jasmine 
I find it soothing I'm afraid

 -CHORUS 4-
Now there is no need for suspicion
There ain't no fraud kissing your hand
I won't be lying when I tell you
That I'm a gardener I'm a man

I play the exact same notes in DADEAD, like he did on the radio concert, and it sounds a lot better, just FYI.
