"The Wheel" (Rosanne Cash)
>From the album _The_Wheel_

----------------------------------------------------------------
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                             A
E-----------5-----|-----------5---|-----------5---|-----------5---|

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.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/rosanne_cash/the_wheel_tab.html ]
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.
