Dust to Dust

My father was a very good, sweet and loving man.  He kept his wits and wit about him to his very end at 101!  He inspired many songs over the years including this last one, written as the first anniversary of his passing approached.

 

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust

Everything that you know and trust

Down to the core and out beyond

It’s the universal chorus and we’re the song

So cast your shadow and keep moving along

Keep moving along

 

Change is the master and change is the way

Not a single lovin thing can stay the same

You gotta pick up your hand

And you play your game

You play your game

You play your game

 

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust

Everything that you know and trust

Down to the wire and out beyond

The universal fire goes burning on

So cast your shadow and keep moving along

Keep moving along

 

Change is the wheel and change is the test

Not a single lovin thing gets to stay in the nest

You gotta play the cards you’re given

And you gotta give it your best

Give it your best

Give it your best

 

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust

Everything that you know and trust

From the cradle down to the grave

It’s the universal current and we’re the wave

So cast your shadow and step off the stage

You step off the stage

You step off the stage

 

So bless the body and bless the soul

Bless the story this one life told

Bless the memories and

Bless the letting go

Bless the letting go

Bless the letting go

 

Ashes to ashes…
