ASHES TO ASHES (Steve Earle) (Steve Earle) Steve Earle Chorus Ashes to ashes, dust to dust Ashes to ashes, dust to dust A long time ago before the ice and the snow There were giants that walked this land And with each step they took, the mighty mountains shook And the trees took a knee and the seas rolled in Then one day they say the sky gave way And death rained down, it made a terrible sound There was fire everywhere and nothin' was spared That walked on the land or flew through the air And when it all was over The slate wiped clean with a touch There God stood and he saw it was good And He said "ashes to ashes and dust to dust" Chorus 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" Chorus 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 Chorus x 2 (Contributed by =Ae= - October 2013)
