In the Wilderness       Genesis        From Genesis to Revelations 1967

This is a clever little song written by early Genesis, probably Banks and Philips.
If you follow the album track with a metronome, you'll notice the tempo change.
Good song for piano and/or guitar.

Verse Key of F    tempo=98
Chorus Key of D   tempo=106

        F   C     Dm  A7
Intro: [1&2&3&4&][/ / / /] 2x's finger picking. 2nd time A7=A

F       C                Dm            A7
Leaving all the world to play they disappear
F       C                    Dm                A
And the leaves have gathered dust to run like deer
F       C               Dm                A7
Tearing pieces from our lives to feed the dawn
F     C                     Dm                 A3&4&
Mist surrounds the seagulls christened by the storm

[A /A7 /][C / / /][C1&a2&a]< building, tempo change - faster   


D         Dsus D  D2 D           Dsus D D2 G
Music, all I hear is music - guaranteed to please
       Em                 A
And I look for something else
D           Dsus   D    D2  D           Dsus D  D2  G
Rain drops pouring down the rooftops Flowing in the drains
       Bm                Em            Bm/D             A    D     C    
As the people run their lives As their lives are run by time[1  2  3  4]
                                                    transition^tempo-slower
         
Fighting enemies with weapons made to kill
Death is easy as a substitute for pride
Victors join together, happy in their bed
Leaving cold outside the children of the dead

(chorus)
Music, all I hear is music - guaranteed to please
And I look for something else
Rain drops pouring down the rooftops
Flowing in the drains
As the people run their lives
As their lives are run by time  D   C  
           
Same as intro, but then like coming out of verse into the chorus
[:F   /  C  / ][Dm   /   A7  / :] [A /  A7 /][C /  /  / ][C1&a2&a] 

repeat chorus 2x's

after 2nd chorus  D  C  F  C  D...end

The album ends with a fade on the third chorus. This ending should work well.
