The Garden
By George Jones   [3/4 time]
C                     F
She planted roses the first year we married
        C                            G7
It soon was a garden we'd go walking through
               C                    F
My job kept me traveling but when I came home to heaven 
        C                           G7            C
She was so proud to show me all the love that she grew
I heard her talking one day to an old friend
           C                                     G7
She said I don't want to hurt him but it's out of control
  C              F                 C
I feel so guilty cause he'll be so helpless  
                    G7                   C
He won't understand why I've just got to go
Now I come to the garden alone 
       F                                 C
All my reasons I once had for living are gone
                 E7          F
Sometimes when I feel like I just
         D7   C           G7     C
Can't go on I come to the garden alone
No one can imagine just how much I miss her
         C                                         G7
I'd give up this whole world to once more hold her near
     C                  F
It's just beyond me why God took her from me 
          C                            G7           C
I bet the flowers in heaven are looking better this year
Now I come to the garden alone 
          F                                         C
Where the dew kissed the roses where weeds now have grown
                 E7          F
Sometimes when I feel like I just
         D7   C           G7     C
Can't go on I come to the garden alone
