"The Gardener"
The Tallest Man on Earth - Shallow Grave (2008)
Tabbed by Dylan Williams

As a preface to this, I would like to say that you should definitely go read
the existing open D tab for this, if you're at all familiar with the tuning.
Not the open Dsus2 tabs that exist, which are all for live versions. The one
open D tab that is filed as a "Chords" tab. Seriously, it's awesome.

Here's a somewhat easy standard tuning version to this song. If you want to
play in the song's original key (album version) of G#, you'd have to capo it
at the eighth fret, which may be a little high.

Chords used:
C --------- X32010
Cmaj7 ----- X32410 (or, if that's too hard, X32000)
Am -------- X02210
Am7 ------- X02010
F --------- 133211
G7 -------- 320001
G6 -------- 320000

Since it's Tallest Man, you'll probably have to get the rhythm through a few
studied listens.

C            Cmaj7           Am      Am7
   I sense a runner in the garden
F                                    G7   G6
   Although my judgement's known to fail
C                 Cmaj7          Am     Am7
   Once built a steamboat in a meadow
F                               G7   G6
   'Cause I'd forgotten how to sail

F               G7                   C
   I know the runner's gone to tell you

   There ain't no cowboy in my hair
F                G7             C
   So now he's buried by the daisies
F                                      G7         C
   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
In your eyes, babe

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

Now there is no need for suspicion
There ain't no frog kissing your hand
I won't be lying when I tell you
That I'm a Gardner I'm a man
In your eyes babe
In your eyes babe
In your eyes babe
