This Old Earth

From Mirrors And Changes

Music and lyrics © 1974 Bob Zentz

 

1.  Fragments of another sunset  (C-Dm)
Ashes of another dawn  (F-C)
Drowned in timeís immortal ocean   (Em-Am)
All too soon, we may be gone  (F-G)

 

     This old Earth has seen a lot of living  (Am-Em)

     This old Earth, the stories she could tell  (F-C)

     This old Earth is finished with the giving  (Dm-Am)

     This old Earth we knew so well  (G7-F)


2.  Now the playground stands deserted
In the yellow afternoon
And the cotton candy children
Have all gone home too soon

 

     And the tree of knowledge trembles

     For the fruit was ours before

     Will we be like Edenís lovers

     Driven from the gardenís door?

 

3.  So what can it take from nature

And what must it take from man

For the future generation

To save the sky, the sea, the land?

 

     This old Earth has seen a lot of living

     This old Earth, the stories she could tell

     This old Earth is finished with the giving

     This old Earth we used so well

 

4.  So ask your child what really matters

And ask your friend what he will do

And ask the leaders youíve elected

But the answer lies with you

 

     This old Earth has seen a lot of living

     This old Earth weíve used from end to end

     Now itís time for mankind to start giving

     This old Earth could use a friend
