In the Wilderness Genesis From Genesis to Revelations 1967 This is a clever little song written by early Genesis, probably Banks and Philips. If you follow the album track with a metronome, you'll notice the tempo change. Good song for piano and/or guitar. Verse Key of F tempo=98 Chorus Key of D tempo=106 F C Dm A7 Intro: [1&2&3&4&][/ / / /] 2x's finger picking. 2nd time A7=A F C Dm A7 Leaving all the world to play they disappear F C Dm A And the leaves have gathered dust to run like deer F C Dm A7 Tearing pieces from our lives to feed the dawn F C Dm A3&4& Mist surrounds the seagulls christened by the storm [A /A7 /][C / / /][C1&a2&a]< building, tempo change - faster D Dsus D D2 D Dsus D D2 G Music, all I hear is music - guaranteed to please Em A And I look for something else D Dsus D D2 D Dsus D D2 G Rain drops pouring down the rooftops Flowing in the drains Bm Em Bm/D A D C As the people run their lives As their lives are run by time[1 2 3 4] transition^tempo-slower Fighting enemies with weapons made to kill Death is easy as a substitute for pride Victors join together, happy in their bed Leaving cold outside the children of the dead (chorus) Music, all I hear is music - guaranteed to please And I look for something else Rain drops pouring down the rooftops Flowing in the drains As the people run their lives As their lives are run by time D C Same as intro, but then like coming out of verse into the chorus [:F / C / ][Dm / A7 / :] [A / A7 /][C / / / ][C1&a2&a] repeat chorus 2x's after 2nd chorus D C F C D...end The album ends with a fade on the third chorus. This ending should work well.
