The Guess Who – A Wednesday In Your Garden lyrics

(Bachman)

As I crawl through your garden
You stand and laugh
You stand and laugh

I tried to beg for your pardon
You stand and laugh
You stand and laugh

It's a long way coming down
The ladders in your eye
For a wednesday in your garden
I think that I would die

I tried to stand in your garden
But you're too tall
You're much too tall
You win the hand, I throw my cards in
You watched me fall
You watched me fall

It's a long way coming down
The ladders in your eye
For a wednesday in your garden
I think that I would die

I tried to fly in your garden
But you shot me down
Mama you shot me down on the ground
I watched the sky above me harden
And your black gown your long back funeral gown

It's a long way coming down
The ladders in your eye
For a wednesday in your garden
I think that I would die.

    This sounds like a prayer sung to the super-parent, god himself. The garden is the garden, and what wouldn't any of us give to spend a simple full regular day (life) in that garden. But it's hard. We don't seem to get enough help to learn how to crawl or stand in it -- let alone fly in it. And then we die. "i watch the sky above me harden... " amazing poetry really, in this humble song from the sixties.
