Peter Gabriel, Thomas Newman - Down to Earth

Capo 1
Bb = [113331], C* = [335553], G = [355433], F = [133211], C = [332010]

Bb C* x4  (slide your pinky to 6th fret and then back when strumming C*)

Verse 1:
          Bb             C*             Bb   C*
Did you think that your feet had been bound
          Bb       C*            Bb    C*
By what gravity brings to the ground?
         G            C*
Did you feel you were tricked
         G        C*
By the future you picked?
               Bb   C*  Bb  C
Well, come on down

           G         C*
All those rules don’t apply
            G          C*
When you’re high in the sky
             Bb      C*
So, come on down
Come on down

Chorus 1:
              F           C
We’re coming down to the ground
             F            C
There’s no better place to go
           Bb             C
We’ve got snow up on the mountains
           F           C
We’ve got rivers down below
              F          C
We’re coming down to the ground
             F                C
We hear the birds sing in the trees
          Bb               C
And the land will be looked after
             F               C
We send the seeds out in the breeze

Bb C* x2

Verse 2:
          Bb            C*          Bb    C*
Did you think you’d escaped from routine
    Bb            C*            Bb     C*
By changing the script and the scene?
G               C* 
Despite all you made of it
        G      C*   
You’re always afraid
        Bb   C*  Bb  C*
Of the change

              G         C*
You’ve got a lot on your chest
               G        C*
Well, you can come as my guest
             Bb      C*
So come on down
Come on down

Chorus 1.

Like the fish in the ocean
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:
              F    C
We’re coming down
                 F   C
Coming down to Earth
                F    C
Like babies at birth
                 F   C
Coming down to Earth
                    F       C
We’re gonna find new priorities
                   F       C
These are extraordinary qualities
F     C
F      C
Down to Earth

Chorus 1.
Chorus 2.

F    C to fade
