Garden Song


by Dave Mallet (alt cho Pete Seeger)
C:	Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
All you need is a rake and a how  (Gonna mulch it deep and low)
And a piece of fertile ground  (Gonna make it fertile ground)
Inch by inch, row by row
Someone (Please) bless these seed I sow
Someone warm them from below  (Please keep them safe below)
Til the rains come tumbling down

D - D/F# - / G - D - / G - A - / D - - - / G - A - / D - Bm - / E - - - / A - - - /
D - D/F# - / G - D - / G - A - / D - - - / G - A - / D - Bm - / E - A - / D - - - //

Pulling weeds, picking stones
We are made of dreams and bones
Need a place to call my own for the time is near at hand
Grain for grain, sun and rain
Find my way thru nature's chain
Tune my body and my brain to the music of the land

 C:	Inch by inch, row by row
Gonna make this garden grow
All you need is a rake and a how  (Gonna mulch it deep and low)
And a piece of fertile ground  (Gonna make it fertile ground)
Inch by inch, row by row
Someone (Please) bless these seed I sow
Someone warm them from below  (Please keep them safe below)
Til the rains come tumbling down

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
As old crow watching hungrily
From his perch in yonder tree
In my garden I'm as free as that feathered thief up there!

 C:	(Repeat Chorus as needed)
