C      G/B Am     Am/G
I close my eyes,
G           Dm7            Am          Am/G
Only for a moment and the moment's gone.
C   G/B  Am    Am/G
All my  dreams,
G               Dm7       Am       Am/G
Pass before my eyes a curiosity.
D/F# G6      Am   Am/G
Dust in the wind,
D/F#             G6         Am     Am/G
All they are is dust in the wind


Same old song,
Just a drop of water in an endless sea,
All we do,
Crumbles to the ground tho' we refuse to see.
Dust in the wind,
All they are is dust in the wind

Don't hang on,
Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky.
It slips away,
And all your money won't another minute buy.
Dust in the wind,
All they are is dust in the wind


Dust in the wind,
All they are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind,
All they are is dust in the wind


Outro:  Am, Asus2, Asus4, Am...  (fade out)

Note: I have learned many songs that I do not think I could have learned without the help of Tab. It seems that breaking the songs down into their various parts (intro, verse, chorus, bridge etc.) and writing the tab is part of my process of learning the songs and helps me remember them better.

Dust in the Wind - Kansas
Dust in the Wind

Dust in the Wind" is a song by American progressive rock band Kansas, first released on their 1977 album Point of Know Return.

The guitar line for the song was written by Kerry Livgren as a finger exercise for learning fingerpicking. His wife, Vicci, heard what he was doing, remarked that the melody was nice, and encouraged him to write lyrics for it. Livgren was unsure whether his fellow band members would like it, since it was a departure from their signature style. However he did offer it to them, and the song was accepted and then recorded.
