A
What happened here
				   E

As the New York sunset disappeared
			  B					    C#m
I found an empty garden among the flagstones there
    A
Who lived here
						   E
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
							B
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
				C#m
And now it all looks strange
			    B/A	A	    B			    E
It's funny how one in-    sect can damage so much grain

    A
And what's it for
						 E
This little empty garden by the brownstone door
					  B
	   C#m
And in the cracks along the sidewalk nothing grows no more
    A
Who lived here
						   E
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
							B
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
		    C#m						B/A  A
And we are so amazed we're crippled and we're dazed
			 B				E
A gardener like that one no one can replace


		    A				   E
And I've been knocking but no one answers
		    A					C#m  (G#m  C#m)
And I've been knocking most all the day
			  F#m				C#m
Oh and I've been calling oh hey hey Johnny
			A  B	    E
Can't you come out   to play

    A
And through their tears
						E
Some say he farmed his best in younger years
						    B
		    C#m
But he'd have said that roots grow stronger if only he could hear
     A
Who lived there
						   E
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
						     B
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
			 C#m						 B/A  A
Now we pray for rain, and with every drop that falls
   B                  E
We hear, we hear your name

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE

F#m     A				    B				   E
Johnny, can't you come out to play in your empty garden

(repeat last line and fade)
