A                                          G
Was on a flight home from—well, it doesn’t matter
     F      E        F                     G
With eleven hours, a million thoughts were gathering

A                                   G
My mind kept going to my garden of lavender
 F          E              F             G
I wanted to get to them so they wouldn’t die

A                                 G
When I got home, they were dry as wheat
          F      E                  F             G
While the vines thrived around them B-horror film green

A                         G
Not sure what my lavender symbolize
    F    E    F     G
But inside my heart cried

A                                         G
My heart is drawn to the small out-of-the-way things
     F       E                   F                       G
That I can’t help but to give my focus and attention and care

A                                   G
Cause they shut off what hijacks my brain
    F       E             F            G
And help to tune out what can cause me pain

A                                    G
And I care for the animals around my yard
       F        E              F           G
And my sister’s children and I care for my garden

A               G
Swarmed upon by bumblebees
    F       E                     F                            G
And yellow jackets and wasps and hornets that can dart out and sting

A                    G
I see the big orange tabby cat
 F      E            F               G
Getting warm on the cover of the hot tub

A             G
He turns over on his back
 F      E     F     G
Looking for a belly rub

A                     G
I see the deer tracks in the snow
       F      E                  
On the animal path
      F                 G
That leads into my backyard

A                          G
I hear the sound of my girlfriend’s car
 F            E               F                   G
Coming up the driveway and it fills my heart With joy

A                             G
Though I know it will all end someday
    F       E            F                       G
And someone else will be sleeping in my mountain house

A                   G
Wondering who lived here before
     F                E   
Just like I sometimes do
         F                     G
Though I never really cared to explore

A                              G
I see the chocolate and peanut butter cat
   F                 E                 
I look at him and he looks back
          F                      G
I snap my fingers and blow him a kiss

A                                        G
He rubs his head against my hand and we reminisce
       F                    E                    
I walk downtown and see the Christmas lights
          F                    G
Along the highway and how they shine

A                          G
And I’m reminded of when I was a child
        F       E           F                        G
And how happy I felt when I opened the box and saw a guitar inside

A                                    G
Was on a flight to somewhere I can’t remember
       F         E             F                         G
I feel like I’ve lived so many lives, I can’t put it all together

A                        G
Dordrecht, Holland, yeah that was it
        F                  E                    F                        G
I had a nice dinner with a concert promoter and his Korean wife, Suyoung Kim

A                                    G
Then dropped me off at an old spooky hotel
       F       E            F                          G
I felt like an old man in a castle looking over at the canal

A                                                        G
And I went and I played for a crowd but my heart wasn’t there
       F          E        F              G
I came back to my room and slouched in my bed

A                                                 G
And I fell asleep still stewing about my dried up lavender
      F      E           F         G
And I fell asleep in the dark dead night

A                                       G
And I dreamed of a bluejay picking up a seed
    F       E     F         G
And passing it to another’s beak

A                        G
Then watched him soar to another branch
       F           E                 F                            G
Then a baby possum hissed at me as I crept up on him near a trash can

A                                             G
And I woke up one rainy morning in Dordrecht, Holland
     F        E          F       G
Then got on a flight for London, England
