C C/A C/G x8

C C/A C/G x4
Free as a driving wheel
Dm7                         C C/A C/G x2
Circling around your iron will
C C/A C/G x4
See only what you feel
Dm7                           C C/A C/G x2
Keeps you turning when you're standing still

G                           Dm7          F
You try to run from trouble when it comes
               C
You follow the drum
F                 C C/A C/G x4
Keeping time with everyone

C C/A C/G x4
High as the light of day
Dm7                     C C/A C/G x2
Falling down across your lost highway
C C/A C/G x4
Why does it hurt this way?
Dm7                            C C/A C/G x2
To come so far to find they've closed the gates

G                                              Dm7     F
You've lost your tongue when you fall from the pendulum
                C
Your heart is a drum
F                 C C/A C/G x2
Keeping time with everyone

     G                                Dm7  F
Everyone, hear the drum from the undertow
G                       Dm7                    F
I need to find someone to show me how to play it slow
                C C/A C/G x4
And just let it go

Eb6  [ch]Eb6/D[/ch]
C C/A C/G x2

C C/A C/G x4

G                                      Dm7        F
Your eyes get stung by the rays of the sinkin' sun
               C
You follow the drum
F                 C C/A C/G x2
Keeping time with everyone

      Eb6
Going beat, beat, beat
     [ch]Eb6/D[/ch]      C C/A C/G x2
It's beating me down
Eb6
Beat, beat, beat, beat
     [ch]Eb6/D[/ch]      C C/A C/G x2
It's beating me down
Eb6                [ch]Eb6/D[/ch]    C C/A C/G x2
Day after day it's turning around
Dm7                  G
Till all my days are drowning out

C C/A C/G...

-----

The original riff (or main theme) shifts between C and Csus4, but it's difficult to play 
in standard tuning, and it can't really be expressed with chords.
So I'll recommend an alternative strumming pattern for the riff:

    C    /A    /G
e|-------------------|
B|------1-----1------|
G|------0-----0------|
D|----2-----2-----2--|
A|--3-----0----------|
E|--------------3----|

If you want to play the original riff, you can use a capo on the third fret and 
transpose the chords (Beck plays the c-note an octave lower, though):

    Cadd4 /A    /G
g |-------------------|
D |-------------------|
Bb|-------------------|
F |------0-----0------|
C |----4-----4-----4--|
G |--5-----2-----0----|
