Lyrics to Garden Song


Inch by inch, row by row,
Gonna make this schoolyard grow.
Gonna mulch it deep and low,         
Gonna make it fertile ground.
Inch by inch, row by row,
Please bless these seeds I sow.      
Please keep them safe below               
'Til the rain comes tumbling down.

 Pullin' weeds and pickin' stones,
We are made of dreams and bones
Need a spot to call my own
Cause the time is close at hand.
Grain for grain, sun and rain
 Find my way in nature's chain
Tune my body and my brain
To the music of the land.

Plant your trees straight and long,
Season them with a prayer and song
Mother Earth will keep you strong
If you give her love and care.
Old crow watching from a tree
Has his hungry eyes on me
In my garden I'm as free
As that feathered thief up there.
