The Garden Song
Chorus: Inch by inch, row by row, gonna help this garden grow.
Gonna mulch it deep below, gonna make it fertile ground.
Inch by inch, row by row, please bless these seeds I sow,
And warm them from below, till the rains come tumbling down.
Pulling weeds, picking stones, we are made of dreams and bones.
Feel the need to grow our own for the times are in our hands.
Rain for grain, sun and rain, we are part of nature’s chain.
Tune your heart and tune your brain to the music of the land.
Plant your rows straight and long. Temper them with prayer and song.
Mother Earth will make you strong if you give her love and care.
Day by day, seed to sprout, this is what life’s all about,
From the inside pushing out, we keep growing everywhere.
Dirt to soil, seed to sprout, this is what life’s all about,
From the garden reaching out with food for many to share.
