Johnny's Garden


There's a place

I can get to

Where I'm safe

From the city blues

And it's green

And it's quiet

Only trouble was

I had to buy it


And I'll do anything I got to do

Cut my hair and shine my shoes

And keep on singin' the blues

If I can stay here in Johnny's garden

As the swift bird

Flies over the grasses

Dippin' now and then

To take his breakfast

Thus I come and go

And I travel

And I can watch that bird

And unravel


With his love

And his carin'

He puts his life

Into beauty sharin'

And his children

Are his flowers

There to give us peace

In quiet hours
