Gates To The Garden  Nick Cave

    -------------------------



[Am]  Past the ivy-covered windows of
(G*)
The Angel
Am Dm G (G*)
Down Athenaeum Lane to the cathedral
Am (G*)
Through the churchyard I wandered
[Am]  Sat for a spell there and [Dm]I pondered [G]
   My back to the g[F]ates [G]
   My back to the g[F]ates [G]
F G C (G*) Am
My back to the gates of the garden

[Am]  Fugitive fathers, sickly infants, decent mothers
   Runaways and suicidal l[Dm]overs [G]
Am (G*)
Assorted boxes of ordinary bones
[Am]  Of aborted plans and sudden shattered h[Dm]opes [G]
   In unlucky r[F]ows [G]
   ln unhappy r[F]ows [G]
   In unlucky r[F]ows, up to the g[G]ates of the g[C]arden  [F]  [G]

  Won't you m[C]eet me at the g[G]ates
  Won't you m[C]eet me at the g[G]ates
  Won't you m[C]eet me at the g[G]ates
  To the g[C]arden

Beneath the creeping shadow of the tower
The bell from St. Edmunds informs me of the hour
I turn to find you waiting there for me
In sunlight and I see the way that you breathe
Allve and leaning
Allve and leaning
Allve and leaning on the gates of the garden

Leave these ancient places to the angels
Let the saints attend to their keeping of the cathedrals
And leave the dead beneath the ground so cold
For God is in this hand that I hold
As we open up the gates of the garden

Won't you meet me at the gates
Won't you meet me at the gates
Won't you meet me at the gates
To the garden
