(Some Trust In) Chariots

From Beaucatcher Farewell

Music and lyrics © 1979 Bob Zentz



When the night is a curtain of velvet blue  (D-G)

And a falling star splits the sky in two  (A-D)

Orion smiles and Ezekiel knew  (D-G-Em)

That a chariot would carry him home  (A-D)


     Let the wheels in the sky go ‘round and ‘round

     Let the sun and the moon go up and down

     Let the singing stars be my glory crown

     And the chariot’s gonna carry me home


2.  On all the stars like grains of sand

On every world where life began

Where such a tiny thing as man

Dreams of chariots to carry him home  (chorus)


3.  Satellites fall, we need more room

Men make more and walk on the moon

If there’s anybody up there, hear my tune

And send a chariot to carry me home  (chorus)


Some trust in legends of old  (D-A)

Some trust in coins of gold  (A7-D)

Some try to save their souls  (D-G-Em)

Some trust in chariots  (Em-A)


4.  Some search for the glory throne  (A-D)

In a universe unknown  (D-A)

I trust we’re not alone  (G-G/F#-A)

I trust in chariots  (chorus)  (A7-D)


5.  Preachers and professors watching from below

Looking for answers they’ll never know

Why the fools will stay when the dreamers go

On the chariots that carry them home  (chorus)


Swing low, sweet chariot

Comin’ for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot

Comin’ for to carry me home
