Rich Man's Garden Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Written by Johnny McEvoy. The youtube video is by Padraig Grimes who does a great job. Padraig, like me is a big fan of Johnny McEvoy's music and has recorded many for his youtube channell. To play along use the chords I have given and place the capo on the third fret.

[G]On that day when first I saw you
how my [C]young heart filled with [G]joy
you were [C]picking sweet prim[G]roses
when I chanced to pass you [D]by
I [G]felt some strange thing happen
and I [C]knew something had [G]changed
some[C]how I knew [G]because of you
I’d [D]never be the [G]same

CHORUS
You [C]lived in a rich man’s [G]garden
fairest [D]flower of all that [G]grew
in a [C]world I had no [G]part of
where no harm could fall on [D]you
and I [G]never got to know you
for you [C]never looked my [G]way
so I [C]left you in that [G]garden
and I [D]sadly walked a[G]way

You [G]father he had riches
with [C]nothing left to [G]crave
a [C]lord of all the [G]people
with a soul cold as the [D]grave
and I [G]knew he’s give no quarter
to [C]one as poor as [G]me
so I [c]left you in that [G]garden
where I [D]knew my heart to [G]be.

CHORUS
You [C]lived in a rich man’s [G]garden
fairest [D]flower of all that [G]grew
in a [C]world I had no [G]part of
where no harm could fall on [D]you
and I [G]never got to know you
for you [C]never looked my [G]way
so I [C]left you in that [G]garden
and I [D]sadly walked a[G]way

[G]Now the years have slipped behind me
and my [C]hair has turned to [G]grey
I still [C]see you in that [G]garden
on that far off summer [D]day
you [G]were six and I was seven
without a [C]jacket to my name
how I [C]loved you in that [G]garden
but you [D]never spoke my [G]name.

CHORUS
You [C]lived in a rich man’s [G]garden
fairest [D]flower of all that [G]grew
in a [C]world I had no [G]part of
where no harm could fall on [D]you
and I [G]never got to know you
for you [C]never looked my [G]way
so I [C]left you in that [G]garden
and I [D]sadly walked a[G]way.
