This song took me a while to figure out but once I caught the key the chord pattern was easy.
Capo at the 7th fret (trust me)
You will need to finger pick taking full advantage of any opportunities to hammer on and
if you want to sound like Donovan.
[Am]In the garden of [Dm]Truth
[C]There dwells as b[E]ird
[Am]With feathers of a [Dm-C-Em]yellow gold
[Am]And all thru' the [Dm]day
[C]The sun he p[E]lay
[Am]upon his[Dm] raiment [Am]gay
[Am]In the garden of[Dm] Truth
[C]There dwells as [E]bird
[Am]With feathers of a [Dm-C-E]silver pale
[Am]And all night l[Dm]ong
[C]The moon she [E]shone u[Am]pon her r[Dm]aiment w[Am]arm
[Dm]And all within the [Am]branches of this [E]great oak t[Am]ree
[Am]That some call the[Dm] Tree of [Am]Life[E]
[Am]And the wise men they [Dm]come
[C]And they rest [E]upon the r[Am]oots
And they [Dm]hear the s[Am]ong.
