In The Garden / You Send Me / Allegheny - Van Morrison

The fields, the fields
Are always wet with rain
After a summer shower
When I saw you standing
You were standing in the garden
In the garden all misty wet with rain
Misty wet with rain

You wiped the teardrops
From your eyes in sorrow
And we watched the petals
Fall down to the ground
And I sat beside you
I felt this great sadness that day, yeah
When we were standing in the garden

And then, and then, one day
You came back home
You were a creature all in rapture, yeah (yeah)
You had a key to your soul
And you did open that day
When you came back to the garden

Yeah, the olden summer breeze
Was blowin' on your face
Yeah, an' the light was shinin'
On your countenance divine
You were a violet colour
As you sat beside your father and your mother
In the garden

Summer breeze was blowin' on your face-a
In the silence you treasure your summery words
Shiver from my neck down to my spine
Ignited me in daylight and nature
In the garden

Yeah, you fell, you fell, you fell
You fell, you fell into a trance
Vision became so fine
Yeah, we heard the bells
Within the church, we loved so much, yeah

It went like this:

(Vibes plays - 8 notes like bells)

As I touched your cheeks so lightly
Feel like you were born again
An' again, an' again, an' again, an' again
And we felt the presence
Of the youth of a thousand summers
In the garden

(Instrumental & piano solo)

Van: 'One more time for Jonn Savannah'

(applause)

Oh, mornin', mornin'
Mornin', mornin'
One morning in May
Here on my mountain
You're gonna stayสสสสสสสสสสสสสสสสสส
Come and go with me
To the Allegheny

I wanna buy you a horse
For you to ride
I'll ride 'long by your side
To the Allegheny

I'm suppose to get a lawyer
Hey!
That's all I have to say, yeah

Let him take his own wife
To the Allegheny
