CAPO FRET ONE 

      G                                    D    
What happened here? As the New York sunset disappeared
                  A                            Bm
I found an Empty Garden, among the flagstones there
     G                                              D
Who lived here?  He must have been a gardener who cared a lot
                                     A
who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
                  Bm
Now it all looks strange
                    G          A              D
It's funny how one insect can damage so much grain

    G                                              D
And what's it for, this little Empty Garden by the brownstone door
                             A
and in the cracks along the sidewalk
                 Bm
nothing grows no more
     G                                           D
Who lived here?  He must have been gardener who cared a lot
                                     A
who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
               Bm
and we are so amazed
                         G
we're crippled and we're dazed
                     A               D
A gardener like that one, no one can replace

CHORUS
              G
And I've been knockin'
            D
and no one answers
               G
And I've beeen knockin'
             Bm
most all the day
                  Em
Oh, and I've been callin'
             Bm
oh, hey, hey Johnny
               G A       D
can't you come out to play?

     G
And through their tears
                                D
some say he farmed his best in younger years
                                   A
but he'd have said the roots grow stronger
                Bm
If only he were here
    G                                             D
Who lived here?  He must have been a gardener who cared a lot
                                  A    
who weeded out the tears and grew good crop
                 Bm
Now we pray for rain
                         G
And with every drop that pours
   A                     D
we hear, we hear your name

CHORUS
               G
And I've been knockin'
           D
and no one answers
              G
And I've been knockin'
               Bm
most all the day
                  Em
oh, and I've been calling
             Bm
oh, hey, hey Johnny
                G     A                     D
can't you come out, can't you come out and play

   Em    G                     A                  D
Johnny, can't you come out to play in your Empty Garden
