Empty Garden Lyrics

Artist: Elton John


Empty Garden (Hey Hey Johnny)
Elton John
(Elton John/Bernie Taupin)

What happened here?
As the New York sunset disappeared
I found an empty garden among the flagstones there
Who lived here?
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
But now it all looks strange, it's funny how one insect
Can damage so much grain

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

CHORUS:
And I've been knocking but no one answers
And I've been knocking most all the day
Oh, and I've been calling Oh, 'hey hey johnny'
Can't you come out to play

And through their tears
Some say he farmed his best in younger years
But he'd have said that roots grow stronger if he could hear
Who lived there
He must have been a gardener that cared a lot
Who weeded out the tears and grew a good crop
Now we pray for rain, and with every drop that falls
We hear your name

And I've been knocking but no one answers
And I've been knocking most all the day
Oh, and I've been calling Oh, 'hey hey johnny'
Can't you come out to play

Johnny can't you come out to play?
Johnny in your empty garden
