If we would plant seeds that grow

E                   B7                   E

If we would share what we know

E                     E7          A

If we’d protect what we hold

      B7                                      E

The garden would never grow old

E                  B7               E

If we’d reach out without hate

E                   B7                E

If we’d make love and not rape

E                       E7        A

If we’d repair and not break

   B7                                       E

The garden would go on and on

E                      E7            A

Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li

B7                  E

Li, li, li, li, li, li, li

E                        E7          A

Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li

B7                  E           

Li, li, li, li, li, li, li

E                  B7                      E

If we could laugh at the joke

E                  B7                      E

If we would bear some reproach

E                  E7                   A

If we weren’t obeying ghosts

            B7                                E

The garden would never grow old.

E                  B7             E

If we would wait for the prize

E                  B7                E

If we weren’t all building lies

E                  E7                 A

Maybe we’d hear the truth cry

    B7                                           E

And the garden would go on and on.

  

E                  B7          E

If we were willing to bleed

E                  B7             E

To bear another’s great need

E                  e7              A

If we would ask on our knees

             B7                              E

The garden would never grow old

E                  B7                      E

If we would turn a bruised cheek

E                  B7                            E

For the sake of the young and the weak

E                  E7                   A

Inherit the earth with the meek

            B7                              E

The garden would go on and on!
