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 A7Intro: [1&2&3&4&][/ / / /] 2x's finger picking. 2nd time A7=A
F C Dm A7Leaving all the world to play they disappear
F C Dm AAnd the leaves have gathered dust to run like deer
F C Dm A7Tearing 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 GMusic, all I hear is music - guaranteed to please
Em AAnd I look for something else
D Dsus D D2 D Dsus D D2 GRain 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]
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
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.
