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               Dm        G
  Sat for a spell there and I pondered
      F   G
  My back to the gates
      F   G
  My back to the gates
         F    G          C       (G*) Am
  My back to the gates    of the garden

Am
  Fugitive fathers, sickly infants, decent mothers
          Dm    G
  Runaways and suicidal lovers
Am                        (G*)
  Assorted boxes of ordinary bones
Am                Dm    G
  Of aborted plans and sudden shattered hopes
          F   G
  In unlucky rows
          F  G
  ln unhappy rows
          F           G         C     F G
  In unlucky rows, up to the gates of the garden

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

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
