'Twas just a garden in the rain Close to a little leafy lane A touch of colour 'neath skies of grey Bhe raindrops kissed the flower beds The blossoms raised their thirsty heads A perfumed "thank you" they seemed to say Surely here was charm beyond compare to view Maybe it was just that I was there with you 'Twas just a garden in the rain But then the sun came out again And sent us happily on our way Surely here was charm beyond compare to view But, maybe it was just that you were there dear, You were so lovely 'Twas just a garden in the rain But then the sun came out again And sent us happily on our way Just a garden in the rain (Contributed by Shelley Botka - January 2006) ****** s rec by Georges Metaxa w Carroll Gibbons (piano) & The New Mayfair Orch July 1928 London I recall a Summer's day When you and I had strolled away, And suddenly a storn drew nigh. Seeking shelter from the rain, We strolled along a little lane And saw a lovely sight nearby; 'Twas just a garden in the rain, Close to the little leafy lane, A touch of colour 'neath skies of grey. The raindrops kissed the flower beds, The blossoms raised their thirsty heads, A perfumed "thankyou!" they seemed to say Surely here was charm beyond compare to view, Maybe it was just that I was there with you. 'Twas just a garden in the rain, But then the sun came out again, And sent us happily on our way Surely here was charm beyond compare to view, Maybe it was just that I was there with you. Was just a garden in the rain, But then the sun came out again, And sent us happily on our way. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2011)
