Ashes To Ashes - Steve Earle

A long time ago before the ice and the snow 
           C                           Em
There were giants that walked this land 
with each step they took, the mighty mountains shook 
       C                         Em
And the trees took a knee and the seas rolled in 
Then one day they say the sky gave way 
    C                           Em
And death rained down, it made a terrible sound 
There was fire everywhere and nothin' was spared 
    C                     Em
That walked on the land or flew through the air 
D                  Em
And when it all was over 
D                           C
The slate wiped clean with a touch 
There God stood and he saw it was good 
        C                   Em
And said "ashes to ashes and dust to dust" 

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust 
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust 

(Same Pattern throughout...)

Then the sea gave birth and it crawled up on the dirt 
And stood up and took a look around 
Said "I'm the next big thing and the gift that I bring 
Comes directly from God, so there ain't no holdin' me down" 
So he crowned himself king 
Now no one remembers his name 
But the seed that he sowed took the show on the road 
There was blood on their hands and a plague on the land 
They drew a line in the sand and made their last stand 
They said "God made us in his image 
And it's in God that we trust" 
When asked about the men that had died by their hands 
They said "ashes to ashes and dust to dust" 

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust 
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust 

Now, nobody lives forever 
Nothin' stands the test of time 
Oh, you heard 'em say "never say never" 
But it's always best to keep it in mind 
That every tower ever built tumbles 
No matter how strong, no  matter how tall 
Someday even great walls will crumble 
And every idol ever raised falls 
And someday even man's best laid plans 
Will lie twisted and covered in rust 
When we've done all that we can but it slipped through our hands 
And it's ashes to ashes and dust to dust 

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust 
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
