GARDEN IN THE CITY


(Transcribed by Jim McGuire)
Capo 2nd fret

When I was young I lived in the country
C.FG..C
Clouds were my friends I cannot answer why
CF..G..C..
Now that I've grown I live in the city
CF...G..C
And heaven is so far I cannot reach the sky
C.FGC

I once met a man who lived in the city
CFG.C
The stone was his home he said his heart was mine
C.FGC..
He led me far away when he told me I was pretty
C.F..G..C..
How strange to go so far and never touch the sky
CF..GC..

Gardens grow most times in the country grow a-wondrous high
C..F..G..CF.G..
Gardens grow sometimes in the city grow, but soon they die
C..F..G..C.F.G.

Now I look up at the buildings of the city
CFG..C..
Their fingers are so much longer than mine
CFG.C..
I wish I had the hands of the city
CF.GC..
For heaven is so far I cannot reach the sky
C...F..G.C

SAME CHORDS AS BEFORE
Gardens grow most times in the country grow a-wondrous high
Gardens grow sometimes in the city grow, but soon they die.

When I was young I lived in the country
Clouds were my friends, I cannot answer why
Now that I've grown I live in the city
And heaven is so far I cannot reach the sky
And heaven is so far I'll never touch the sky
