Steve Earle: Ashes to Ashes


Chorus: Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust


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

        Am           F                            Am
        There were giants, that walked this land

        Am 
        Each step they took, the mighty mountains shook

                F                          Am
        And the trees took a knee, and the seas rolled in

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

        Am
        There was fire everywhere, and nothin was spared

             F                      Am
        That walked on the land, or flew through the air

        G               Am        G                        F        
        When it all was over, the slate wiped clean with a touch

        Am
        There God stood, and he saw it was good

        Am              F                Am
        And he said, "Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust"

           
Chorus:
        Am
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

        Am
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust


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

                F                           Am
        And stood up, and took a look around

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

        Am     F                                   Am
        comes directly from God, this ain't no holdin me down"

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

        Am      F                            Am
        But the seed that he sowed, took the show on the road

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

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

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

        Am         F                  Am
        They said "Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust" 

         
Chorus: 
        Am
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

        Am
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust
        


        Solo:

            Am  F  Am   F   Am   G  Am  G  F  Am  F  Am


Verse 3:

        Am
        Now, nobody lives forever

        F                          Am
        Nothin stands, the test of time

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

        Am          F                          Am
        Ah but it's always best, to keep it in mind

        Am
        That every tower, ever built tumbles

        Am        F              Am
        No matter how strong, no matter how tall

        Am
        Some day, even great walls crumble
 
        Am  F                       Am
        And every idol ever raised, falls

        Am  G                   Am     
        And someday, even man's best laid plans

        Am       G                       F
        Will lie twisted, and covered in rust

        F                Am
        When we've done all that we can, but it slipped through our hands

        Am        F                  Am
        And it's "Ashes to Ashes and Dust to Dust"


Chorus: 
         
        Am
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

        Am
        Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust
