"Wednesday In Your Garden" as written by and Randy Bachman....
As I crawl through your garden
You stand and laugh
You stand and laugh

I tried to beg for your pardon
You stand and laugh
You stand and laugh

It's a long way coming down
The ladders in your eye
For a Wednesday in your garden
I think that I would die

I tried to stand in your garden
But you're too tall
You're much too tall, yah
You win the hand, I throw my cards in
You watched me fall
You watched me fall

It's a long way coming down
The ladders in your eye
For a Wednesday in your garden
I think that I would die

I tried to fly in your garden
But you shot me down
Mama you shot me down on the ground
I watched the sky above me harden
And your black gown your long back funeral gown

It's a long way coming down
The ladders in your eye
For a Wednesday in your garden
I think that I would die

    General CommentI can't believe no one has posted anything for this song. Definitely one of the best songs by the GW. There is so much passion in Burton Cummings voice, but why? I'm trying to figure out what the the song is about, but can't think of anything (what is the garden?)

    Any ideas?

    General CommentIt seems to be about a girl or someone who he has great respect for who he has displeased or has shot him down? (Mamma you shot me down, you win the hand i throw my cards in. you watched me fall.) There seems to be a fight or a struggle there. Absolutey one of the best GW songs ever, up there with Old Joe and Of A Dropping Pin.

    My OpinionI think it makes a lot of sense if you think of her as God.
