Dirt in the Ground


Verse 1:
 
Fm           Db      Fm
What does it matter, a dream of love
              Db
Or a dream of lies
      Eb                    Ab
We're all gonna be the same place
        C7
When we die
Fm                      Db
Your spirit don't leave knowing
Fm                Db
Your face or your name
        Eb
And the wind through your bones
   Ab       C7
Is all that remains
Fm                  Db   Eb  Fm
And we're all gonna be...
(4 times)
Fm (sung only)
Just dirt in the ground
 
 
Verse 2:
 
Fm               Db
The quill from a buzzard
Fm                   Db
The blood writes the word
          Eb            Ab
I want to know am I the sky
       C7
or the bird
       Fm      Db
'Cause hell is boiling over
Fm            Db
And heaven is full
      Eb
We're chained to the world
    Ab           C7
And we all gotta pull
Fm                  Db  Eb  Fm
And we're all gonna be...
(4 times)
Fm
...Just dirt in the ground
 
 
Verse 3:
 
        Fm         Db
Now the killer was smiling
     Fm             Db
With nerves made of stone
Eb
He climbed the stairs
        Ab      C7
And the gallows groaned
        Fm                   Db
And the people's hearts were pounding
          Fm                   Db
They were throbbing, they were red
      Eb
As he swung out over the crowd
            Ab      C7
I heard the hangman said
Fm              Db   Eb  Fm
We're all gonna be...
(4 times)
Fm
Just dirt in the ground
 
 
Verse 4:
 
    Fm        Db
Now Cain slew Abel
   Fm                Db
He killed him with a stone
    Eb
The sky cracked open
        Ab      C7
And the thunder groaned
Fm               Db
Along a river of flesh
Fm                  Db
Can these dry bones live?
      Eb
Ask a king or a beggar
        Ab             C7
And the answer they'll give
Fm                 Db  Eb  Fm
Is we're all gonna be...
(4 times)
Fm
We're all gonna be just

We're chained to the world and we all gotta pull
 
And we're all gonna be...
 
Now the killer was smiling with nerves made of stone
He climbed the stairs and the gallows groaned
And the people's hearts were pounding
They were throbbing, they were red
As he swung out over the crowd - I heard the hangman said
 
We're all gonna be...
 
Now Cain slew Abel
He killed him with a stone
The sky cracked open
And the thunder groaned
Along a river of flesh
Can these dry bones live?
Ask a king or a beggar
And the answer they'll give

And I've been so good
Except for drinking but he knew that I would
Well, I'm gonna leave this place better than the way I found it was

I know my Jesus gonna be here
Gonna be here soon
I know my Jesus gonna be here
Gonna be here soon

capo on 1st
 
D
          D                   G                  D
Where the Ice Man's mule...is parked outside the bar
        D                                   D         A
Where a man with missing fingers...plays a strange guitar
         D                              D         A
And the German dwarf...dances with the butcher's son
           D      G          D       A
Tonight a little rain never hurt no one
 
         D                             G                D
They're dancing on the roof...and the ceiling's coming down
        D                            D        A
And I sleep with my shovel...and my leather gloves
       D                         D         A
And a little trouble...makes it worth the going
           D      G          D       A
Tonight a little rain never hurt no one
 
        D                  G         D
Oh the world is round...so I'll go around
     D         G              G
You must risk something that matters
       D                           G        D
Oh my hands are strong...I'll take any man here
         D                      G         A
If it's worth the going...it's worth the ride
 
        D                       G              D
She was 15 years old...and she never seen the ocean
     D                           D   A
She climbed into a van...with a vagabond
         D                          D        A
And the last thing she said was "I love you mom."
           D      G          D       A
Tonight a little rain never hurt no one
       D      G          D       A

I can really drive a bed
I'm gonna change my name
To Hannibal or maybe
Just Rex
Change my name to Hannibal
Or maybe just Rex
 
I'm gonna drive all night
Take some speed
I'm gonna wait for the sun
To shine down on me
I cut a hole in my roof
In the shape of a heart
 
And I'm goin' out west
Where they'll appreciate me
Goin' out west
Goin' out west

Black Wings


        Bm             Bsus4
Take an eye for an eye
       Bm                Bsus4
Take a tooth for a tooth
      D                   F#     F#7
Just like they say in the Bible
Bm                  Bsus4 Bm               Bsus4
Never leave a trace       or forget a face
       D          F#    F#7        F#         Bm    Bsus4
Of any man at the table,    of any man at the table
         Em                      Bm     Bsus4
When the moon is a cold chiseled dagger
Em                   Bm                 Bsus4
sharp enough to draw blood from a stone
   Em
he rides through your dreams on a coach
    Bm     Bsus4          Em
and horses        and the fence posts
                          F#
in the midnight look like bones
 
Well they've stopped trying to hold him
with mortar, stone and chain
He broke out of every prison
Boots mount the staircase
The door is flung back open
He's not there for he has risen
He's not there for he has risen
 
Well he once killed a man with a guitar string
He's been seen at the table with kings
Well he once saved a baby from drowning
There are those who say beneath his coat there are wings
Some say they fear him
Others admire him
because he steals his promise
One look in his eye
everyone denies
ever having met him
ever having met him
 
He can turn himself into a stranger
well they broke a lot of canes on his hide
He was born away in a cornfield
A fever beats in his head like a drum inside
Some say they fear him
Others admire him
because he steals his promise
One look in his eye
everyone denies
ever having met him
ever having met him
(repeat till end)

Eb    Bb/D       Eb        Ab   Fm7        Bb           Eb
  I grew up here all of my life, I dreamed some day I'd go
Eb                  Bb/D           Eb     Ab            Fm7   Bb     Eb
Where the blue-eyed girls, and the red guitars, and the naked rivers flow
 
Ab
  Now I'm not all I thought I'd be
Eb
  I've always stayed around
     Ab
I've been as far as Mercy and Grand
Fm7           Bb
frozen to the ground
 
Eb            Bb/D          Eb            Ab
  But I can't stay here and I'm scared to leave
Fm7        Bb       Eb    Bb
So kiss me once and then
Eb         Bb/D     Eb       Ab
I'll go to hell - I might as well
Fm7          Bb       Eb
be whistlin' down the wind
 
Ab                Eb/G        Ab           Eb/G
The bus is at the corner, the clock on the wall
Ab          Eb/G            Bb               Eb
Broken down windmill, there ain't no wind at all
Ab     Eb/G                   Ab             Eb/G
  I yelled and I cursed, if I stay here I'll rust
        Ab           Eb                        F9        Bb
And I'm stuck like a shipwreck out here in the dust

Eb         Bb/D Eb                  Ab    Fm7             Bb          Eb   Bb
The sky is red, and the world is on fire, and the corn is taller than me
Eb             Bb/D      Eb       Ab            Fm7     Bb         Eb
And the dog is tied to a wagon of rain, and the road is wet as the sea
    Ab                               Eb          Bb7       Eb
And sometimes the music from a dance will carry across the plains
Ab                                  Fm7                   Bb/D - Cm/Eb-Bb/D
And the places that I'm dreaming of, do they dream only of me?
 
Eb               Bb/D       Eb    Ab     Fm7            Bb    Eb   Bb/D
There are places where they never sleep, and the circus never ends
   Eb     Bb/D     Eb          Ab    Fm7          Bb            Eb
So I will take the Marley Bone Coach, and be whistlin' down the wind
   Eb     Bb/D     Eb          Ab    Fm7          Bb            Eb
So I will take the Marley Bone Coach, and be whistlin' down the wind

That Feel


|A| - |A| - |D| - |E|
 
A                                 D           E
There's one thing you can't lose, it's that feel
     A                                  D          E
 Your pants, your shirt, your shoes, but not that feel
D                                    E
  You can throw it out in the rain - You can whip it like a dog
A                              A/E
  You can chop it down like an old dead tree
D                                   E
  You can always see it when you're coming into town
A                                      B7
  Once you hang it on the wall you can never take it down
 
But there's one thing you can't lose, and it's that feel
You can pawn your watch and chain, but not that feel
It always comes and finds you, it will always hear you cry
I cross my wooden leg and I swear on my glass eye
It will never leave you high and dry, never leave you lose
It's harder to get rid of than tattoos
 
But one thing you can't do, is lose that feel
But one thing you can't do, is lose that feel
You can throw it off a bridge, you can lose it in a fire
You can leave it at the altar, but it will make you out a liar
You can fall down in the street, you can leave it in the lurch
Well, you say that it's gospel, but I know that it's only church
