Whose Garden Was This? Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Spirit

This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Whose Garden Was This? album, and has also been released on the Changes album.

Whose garden was this
It must have been lovely
Did it have flowers
Ive seen pictures of flowers
And Id love to have smelled one

Whose river was this
You say it ran freely
Blue was its colour
And Ive seen blue in some pictures
And Id love to have been there

Tell me again, I need to know
The forest had trees, the meadows were green
The oceans were blue
And birds really flew
Can you swear that its true

Whose grey sky was this
Or was it a blue one
You say they were breezes
Ive heard records of breezes
And Id love to have felt one

Tell me again, I need to know
The forest had trees, the meadows were green
The oceans were blue
And birds really flew
Can you swear that its true

Whose garden was this
It must have been lovely
Did it have flowers
Ive seen pictures of flowers
And Id love to have smelled one

Tell me again, I need to know
Tell me again, I need to know
Tell me again, I need to know

Though John Denver did a beautiful versiion of this song, the music and lyrics were actually written by Tom Paxton.

rather sad now, isn't it?

Beautiful song which I believe was the musings of someone looking at the aftermath of a nuclear war. Very topical and touching at the time of a fairly hot cold war
