Peter Gabriel, Thomas Newman - Down to Earth

  Capo IV

Intro: Em  C  Em  Am    
       [ G      A  ] x4 

Verse 1:
         [  G      A(7)  ]    x4
Did you think that your feet had been bound
By what gravity brings to the ground?
         Em            C       
Did you feel you were tricked
         G (Em)        C (Am)
By the future you picked?
               G   A  G  A
Well, come on down
           Em          C
All those rules don't apply
           G (Em)      C (Am)
When you're high in the sky
             G      A       G
So, come on down
Come on down
[ Tab from: ]
Chorus 1:
       [ D           A ]   x2
We're coming down to the ground
There's no better place to go
           G (D)          A
We've got snow up on the mountains
           D           A     
We've got rivers down below
        [ D           A ] x2
We're coming down to the ground
We hear the birds sing in the trees
          G (D)            A
And the land will be looked after
             D               A
We send the seeds out in the breeze

[ G   A ] x2

Verse 2:
Did you think you'd escaped from routine
By changing the script and the scene?
Despite all you made of it
You're always afraid
Of the change
You've got a lot on your chest
Well, you can come as my guest
So come on down
Come on down

Chorus 1.

Bridge:  [ G 
Like the fish in the ocean
            A ]   x8
We felt at home in the sea
We learned to live off the good land
Learned to climb up a tree
Then we got up on two legs
But we wanted to fly
When we messed up our homeland
We set sail for the sky

Chorus 1.

Chorus 2: (just [ D     A ] x8)
We're coming down
Coming down to Earth
Like babies at birth
Coming down to Earth
We're gonna find new priorities
These are extraordinary qualities
(You find on Earth)
Down to Earth

Chorus 1.
Chorus 2.

[ D    A ] to fade
