Steve Earle: Ashes to Ashes


Chorus: Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust


Verse 1:
        Em
        A long time ago, before the ice and snow

        Em           C                            Em
        There were giants, that walked this land

        Em 
        Each step they took, the mighty mountains shook

                C                          Em
        And the trees took a knee, and the seas rolled in

        Em
        Then one day, they say the sky gave way
  
            C                            Em
        And death rained down, it made a terrible sound

        Em
        There was fire everywhere, and nothin was spared

             C                      Em
        That walked on the land, or flew through the air

        D               Em        D                        C        
        When it all was over, the slate wiped clean with a touch

        Em
        There God stood, and he saw it was good

        Em              C                Em
        And he said, "Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust"

           
Chorus:
        Em
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

        Em
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust


Verse 2:
        Em
        The sea gave birth, and it crawled up on the dirt

                C                           Em
        And stood up, and took a look around

        Em
        Said "I'm the next big thing, and the gift that I bring

        Em     C                                   Em
        comes directly from God, this ain't no holdin me down"

        Em
        So he crowned himself King, Now no one remembers his name

        Em      C                            Em
        But the seed that he sowed, took the show on the road

        Em
        There was blood on their hands, and a plague on the land

        Em    C                           Em
        They drew a line in the sand, and made their last stand
           
        Em         D                  Em              D              C
        They said "God made us in his image, and it's in God that we trust

        Em
        When asked about the men, that had died by their hands

        Em         C                  Em
        They said "Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust" 

         
Chorus: 
        Em
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

        Em
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust
        


        Solo:

            Em  C  Em   C   Em   D  Em  D  C  Em  C  Em


Verse 3:

        Em
        Now, nobody lives forever

        C                          Em
        Nothin stands, the test of time

        Em                   
        Oh, you heard'em say "Never say Never"

        Em          C                          Em
        Ah but it's always best, to keep it in mind

        Em
        That every tower, ever built tumbles

        Em        C              Em
        No matter how strong, no matter how tall

        Em
        Some day, even great walls crumble
 
        Em  C                       Em
        And every idol ever raised, falls

        Em  D                   Em     
        And someday, even man's best laid plans

        Em       D                       C
        Will lie twisted, and covered in rust

        C                Em
        When we've done all that we can, but it slipped through our hands

        Em        C                  Em
        And it's "Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust"


Chorus: 
         
        Em
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

        Em
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust
