Empty Garden (Hey Hey Johnny) Lyrics

What happened here

As the New York sunset disappeared

I found an empty garden among the flagstones there

Who lived here

He must have been a gardener that cared a lot

Who weeded out the tares and grew a good crop

And now it all...

    It's about John Lennon after he was murdered, the isect is the killer and the grain is John. John was a devoted gardener in life.
