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
