Empty Garden chords

Elton John

Key: 

A/E What happened here E As the New York sunset disappeared B C#m I found an empty garden among the flagstones there A/E 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 B7 E It's funny how one in- sect can damage so much grain A/E 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/E 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 Chorus: 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 B7 E Can't you come out to play A/E 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/E 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 **Chorus Twice F#m A B E Johnny, can't you come out to play in your empty garden (Repeat Last Line And Fade)
