"The Wheel" (Rosanne Cash)
>From the album _The_Wheel_
Transcribed with no permission whatsoever by Marc Hirsh
----------------------------------------------------------------
Here's the title song to Rosanne Cash's brilliant latest album.
I'm not entirely sure what the intro riff is, but I think that
it's something along the lines of:

Dsus2 AE-----------5-----|-----------5---|-----------5---|-----------5---|B-------5-------5-|-------5-------|-------5-------|-------5-------|G---7-------------|---7-----------|---6-----------|---6-----------|D-7---7---7---7---|-7---7---7---7-|-7---7---7---7-|-7---7---7---7-|A-----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|E-----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|

but I'm not sure. Steuart Smith is very close to being God, and so I can't tell with a high level of certainty. Plus, the way I've tabbed it out, the riff is a bitch to play, but then, I'm not very good. Any corrections are totally welcome. Anyway, this may not matter that much if, like me, the key of D is just way to high for you to sing. I've transposed it to A, capoed up at the 2nd fret. I'll put my chords at the end. I also don't know the solo, but it shouldn't be too hard to either figure it out yourself or just fake it. That's what I do. D A How long was I alseep? D A When did we plan to meet? D A Bm Have you been waiting long for me? D A When did the sky turn black? D A Do you still want me back? D A Bm I'll pick it all up piece by piece. (I'm not sure - this next chord could be Em, but G is used for ever other chorus, so I'm putting it here) G A D And the wheel goes round and round. G A Bm And the flame in our souls will never burn out. G A D And the wheel, and the wheel goes round. D A I am a river with a voice. D A I came into your life by choice. D A Bm And none can judge just how that feels. D A You are a messenger from God. D A You are the angel I forgot. D A Bm And who's to say that it isn't real? G A D And the wheel goes round and round. G A Bm And the flame in our souls will never burn out. G A D And the wheel, and the wheel goes round. F#m G I'm not looking for the answers. F#m G Oh, darling don't you see F#m E That just to know the question G A Is good enough for me. (solo which is based on a rising D scale, that much I know) D A Take up the hearts you came to heal. D A Put down your dagger and your shield. D A Bm You need fear nothing now from me. D A I see the essence of the man. D A I stand before you as a friend. D A Bm The truth moves through us even when we sleep. G A D And the wheel goes round and round. G A Bm And the flame in our souls will never burn out. G A G A And the wheel, and the wheel goes round. (alternate between G and A a few times then back to D with riff) ================================================================ Still with me? Good. If you'd like the handy-dandy Marc Hirsh transposition into the key of A, follow along. Capo at the 2nd fret. Then, change the following chords: Chord in original key Chord FORM capoed at 2 --------------------- ---------------------- D G A D Bm Em G C F#m Bm E A That should do it. With a text editor, you should be able to change the chords in the main body of this file yourself. Not only does it make it easier on us baritone-types, but it also eliminates that pesky F#m chord, which can be a pain if your fingers aren't in the mood to barre chords. If you get some use out of this song, let me know, so I can be sure that I'm not just posting to see my own name on the .net. -- Marc Hirsh (marc@owlnet.rice.edu) \ / ^ --"I went to the funeral and Lord it made me happy..."
