Capo I

Dirt In The Ground

Tom Waits, Kathleen Brennan / Tom Waits: Bone Machine (1992)

Em C Em C
What does it matter, a dream of love - Or a dream of lies?
D G B7
We're all gonna be the same place - When we die.
Em C Em C
Your spirit don't leave knowing - Your face or your name,
D G B7
And the wind through your bones - Is all that remains.
Em C D Em C D Em C D Em C D
And we're all gonna be ... be ... be ... be ...
Em
Just dirt in the ground!
 
Em C Em C
The quill from a buzzard - The blood writes the word.
D G B7
I want to know am I the sky - Or the bird.
Em C Em C
'Cause hell is boiling over - And heaven is full.
D G B7
We're chained to the world - And we all gotta pull.
Em C D Em C D Em C D Em C D
And we're all gonna be ... be ... be ... be ...
Em
Just dirt in the ground!
 
Em C Em C
Now the killer was smiling - With nerves made of stone.
D G B7
He climbed the stairs - And the gallows groaned,
Em C Em C
And the people's hearts were pounding - They were throbbing, they were red.
D G B7
As he swung out over the crowd - I heard the hangman said:
Em C D Em C D Em C D Em C D
And we're all gonna be ... be ... be ... be ...
Em
Just dirt in the ground!
 
Em C Em C
Now Cain slew Gel - He killed him with a stone.
D G B7
The sky cracked open - And the thunder groaned.
Em C Em C
Along a river of flesh - Can these dry bones live?
D G B7
Ask a king or a beggar - And the answer they'll give:
Em C D Em C D Em C D Em C D
And we're all gonna be ... be ... be ... be ...
Em
Just dirt in the ground!
