"The Gardener" - The Tallest Man on Earth
Tuning: DADEAd
Capo: VI

After a long time of searching I had only found partially complete or incorrect tabs for this song so I 
thought I'd give it a try. I've taken the correct bits I've found and corrected a few of the off chords to 
match the album version as best I can. The only chord I'm still unsure of is the second part of the intro 
which I've marked with an asterisk (*) so if anyone has any ideas on what it could be let me know.

[Lyrics]

[Verse 1]
I sense a runner in the garden
Although my judgement's known to fail
Once built a steamboat in a meadow
Cos I'd forgotten how to sail

I know the runner's going to tell you 
There ain't no cowboy in my hat
So now he's buried by the daisies
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

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

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 
In your eyes, babe [x2]

[Interlude]
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 gardener I'm a man 

[Outro]
In your eyes babe [x3]
