Intro: C 

Verse 
C 
  The family garden is a special place 
                        Em 
In sun and shade there, I was raised 
C                          F 
  But voices fade away and rooms are rearranged 
    C              Bb  Gm C 
Now I'm the family gardener 

Verse 

You need a stethoscope and a good good rake 
                                Em 
Some beer for snails and a rope for snakes 
C              Cm         Dm                       F   
   A flowerbed to fall in as the moonlight breaks 
C                      Bb        C 
When you're the family gardener 
                   Em  F 
And I'm the family gardener 

Bridge 
                                       C                  
As I look down with my two eyes and my two green thumbs 
Am                       Ab  
I despise the people who walk on the green green grass 
C              D 
I grew with my watered love 

Instrumental 
G Bb C 

Verse 

Now some other son sleeps in the southern wing 
                                            Bm       Em     C 
And someone else's mother sits to paint the pastoral scene 
                                   Dm    F 
My father always said that I would never amount to anything 
    C              Bb        C 
But I'm the family gardener 
               Ab   Am 
I'm the family gardener 
F              C  G C 
I'm the family gardener
