Gardener Of Eden

This song is by Jack the Lad and appears on the album Rough Diamonds (1975).

You young girls walking out, where are you bound?
Are you aware of someone there alive in every tree?
And as he makes each step along the ground
Remember that an easy reach is someone you don't see

Give me your hand, ride, ride around with me
All around the land, start your life again
Open your eyes, then you'll plainly see
You're walking with the gardener of Eden

If you would pause and look around your feet
I'll introduce you to my friends who sparkle in the dew
I've many plants that you would care to meet
We'll talk with them awhile and maybe you'll learn something new

Give me your hand, fly, fly around with me
All around the land, start your life again
Open your eyes, then you'll plainly see
You're walking with the gardener of Eden

I don't deny that I've had enough of you
Racing, wasting precious time
And you would be true to yourself if you would only
Leave the garden to its own device

Give me your hand, ride, ride around with me
All around the land, start your life again
Open your eyes, then you'll plainly see
You're walking with the gardener of Eden

I don't deny that I've had enough of you
Racing, wasting precious time
And you would be true to yourself if you would only
Leave the garden to its own device

I feel you don't believe a word I say
Then offer me a reason for the spring or autumn change
An overseer does his work each day
And through the night while people sleep, though you may think it's strange

Give me your hand, ride, ride around with me
All around the land, start your life again
Open your eyes, then you'll plainly see
You're walking with the gardener of Eden
