#1 Break the ground, plant the seed. 

What you get is what you need.

It comes to you but you must wait.  

Don’t worry, it can’t be late.

#2 Seasons come, seasons go.  

What you reach is what you sew.

It’s your earth below your feet.  

What you are is what you seek.

[D][C][D]%][D][C][B][E]

Something new that’s so old.  

Within your reach for you to hold.

So much there for you to find.  

All limitations will fall behind.

[A][G][A]%][A][G][F#][%]

So take my word, you will find.  

Things will grow inside your mind.

It’s good work and it’s fun.  

What you seek is what you become.

So take my word, you will find.  

Things will grow inside your mind.

It’s good work and it’s fun.  

What you seek is what you become.

note:

Garden Song was written on the bass guitar. 

I’ve been a gardener for many years and the lyrics were composed while watching the garden grow.  Songs change as they age.  When I came up with the big chord intro, I knew I wanted it to be the first song on my next album.

This song lends itself well to a prolonged space jam.  Come see it live.
