Garden Song


Chords:

D – G D / G A D – / G A D Bm / (1st time) E – A – :// (2nd time) E A D –

Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
All it takes is a rake and a hoe
And a piece of fertile ground
Inch by inch, row by row
Someone bless these seeds I sow
Someone warm them from below
Til the rains come tumbling down

Pullin’ weeds and pickin’ stones,
We are made of dreams and bones
Need spot to call my own
Cause the time is close at hand.
Grain for grain, sun and rain
I’ll find my way in nature’s chain
Tune my body and my brain
To the music of the land.
Plant your rows straight and long

Temper them with prayer and song
Mother earth will make you strong if you give her love and care
An old crow watching hungrily
From his perch in yonder tree
In my garden I’m as free as that feathered thief up there

Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
All it takes is a rake and a hoe
And a piece of fertile ground
Inch by inch, row by row
Someone bless these seeds I sow
Someone warm them from below
Til the rains come tumbling down
