Chorus

Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

Verse 1

EmA long time ago, before the ice and snow EmThere were giCants, that walked this land Em EmEach step they took, the mighty mountains shook And the Ctrees took a knee, and the Emseas rolled in EmThen one day, they say the sky gave way And Cdeath rained down, it made a Emterrible sound EmThere was fire everywhere, and nothin was spared That Cwalked on the land, or Emflew through the air DWhen it all was Emover, the Dslate wiped clean with a Ctouch EmThere God stood, and he saw it was good EmAnd he said, "AsChes to Ashes and EmDust to Dust"

Chorus

EmAshes to Ashes, Dust to Dust EmAshes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

Verse 2

EmThe sea gave birth, and it crawled up on the dirt And stooCd up, and took a look aroundEm EmSaid "I'm the next big thing, and the gift that I bring Emcomes dCirectly from God, this ain't no holdEmin me down" EmSo he crowned himself King, Now no one remembers his name EmBut the Cseed that he sowed, took the Emshow on the road EmThere was blood on their hands, and a plague on the land EmThey dCrew a line in the sand, and Emmade their last stand EmThey said "DGod made us in his Emimage, and it's Din God that we Ctrust EmWhen asked about the men, that had died by their hands EmThey said "CAshes to Ashes and EmDust to Dust"

Chorus

EmAshes to Ashes, Dust to Dust EmAshes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

Solo

Verse 3

EmNow, nobody lives forever CNothin stands, the test of Emtime EmOh, you heard'em say "Never say Never" EmAh but it's Calways best, to keep it in Emmind EmThat every tower, ever built tumbles EmNo matter Chow strong, no Emmatter how tall EmSome day, even great walls crumble EmAnd Cevery idol ever raised, Emfalls EmAnd Dsomeday, even man's Embest laid plans EmWill lie Dtwisted, and covered in Crust CWhen we've done aEmll that we can, but it slipped through our hands EmAnd it's "CAshes to Ashes and EmDust to Dust"

Chorus

EmAshes to Ashes, Dust to Dust EmAshes to Ashes, Dust to Dust
