Empty Garden
[Verse 1]
                  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?

[Verse 2]
     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

[Outro]
   Em    G                     A                  D
Johnny, can't you come out to play in your Empty Garden
(repeat)

About the artist behind Empty Garden:

Sir Elton Hercules John CBE[1] [2] (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight on 25 March 1947) is an English pop/rock singer, composer and pianist.

In his four-decade career, John has been one of the dominant forces in rock and popular music, especially during the 1970s. He has sold more than 250 million albums[citation needed] and over one hundred million singles,[3] making him one of the most successful artists of all time. He has more than 50 Top 40 hits including seven consecutive #1 U.S. albums, 59 Top 40 singles, 16 Top 10, 4 #2 hits, and nine #1 hits. He has won five Grammy awards and one Academy Award. His success has had a profound impact on popular music and has contributed to the continued popularity of the piano in rock and roll. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked him #49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.[4]

Some of the characteristics of John's musical talent include an ability to quickly craft melodies for the lyrics of songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, his former rich tenor (now baritone) voice, his classical and gospel-influenced piano, the aggressive orchestral arrangements of Paul Buckmaster among others and the flamboyant fashions, outlandishly excessive eye glasses, and on-stage showmanship, especially evident during the 1970s.

John was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. He has been heavily involved in the fight against AIDS since the late 1980s and was knighted in 1998. He entered into a civil partnership with David Furnish on 21 December 2005 and continues to be a champion for the LGBT social movements. On April 9, 2008 Elton John held a benefit concert for the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign, and raised $2.5 million.[5]
