Here's another good'ne from Sponge! This may be hard to describe because it
is, like some of their other works, a rather linear song. I guess you'll just
have to know the song to know what I'm talking about.  Anyway.....let's get
started here.

After the bass intro, this is played on an acoustic guitar.

e:-2-----2----2-2-2-0-0-----0-0--|
B:-3-----3----3-3-3-3-3-----3-3--|
G:-2-----2----2-2-2-0-1-----1-1--|
D:-0-----0----0-0-0-0-2-----2-2--|
A:-------------------------------|
D:-------------------------------|

After four times you can hear another guitar play this with some effect that
makes it sound like a recorder or something (hell, it may BE a recorder!).

e:-10----------------------|
B:----------9b(10)(9)------|
G:-----7-------------------|
D:-------------------------|
A:-------------------------|
D:-------------------------|

After the verse where he says,"I dream" something like this is played:

e:--------------------------|------------------------|
B:--------------------------|------------------------|
G:---5--7-----7-----7--7--7-|------------------------|
D:---5--7--0--7-----7--7--7-|-5--5--5--5--5--5--7--7-|
A:---3--5--0--5-----5--5--5-|-5--5--5--5--5--5--7--7-|
D:---------0--0-----0--0--0-|-5--5--5--5--5--5--7--7-|

After this you hear this four times it goes:

e:----------4------|----------2-------|---------4------|
B:----------3------|----------3-------|---------3------|
G:----------2------|----------2-------|---------2------|
D:----------0------|----------0-------|---------0------|
A:----------0------|----------0-------|---------0------|
D:-0---------------|-0----------------|-0--------------|

Over this another guitar goes the following GRADUAL bends:

e:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
B:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
G:----------8b(10)-|----------6b(8)--|----------8b(10)-|
D:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
A:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
D:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

Then some version of this is played. (Or something similar with some effects.
I just play this.)

e:--------------------------|
B:--------------------------|
G:--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--|
D:--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
A:--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
D:--------------------------|

After he says,"I dream" you play this riff, which is mostly the same thing
that you played earlier. Also, the second guitar plays the same bends as it
did before.

e:--------4-----|--------2------|-------4-----|-5--------4-----2--4--2--|
B:--------3-----|--------3------|-------3-----|----3--------------------|
G:--------2-----|--------2------|-------2-----|-------2-----------------|
D:--------0-----|--------0------|-------0-----|-------------------------|
A:--------0-----|--------0------|-------0-----|-------------------------|
D:-0------------|-0-------------|-0-----------|-------------------------|

e:--------4-----|--------2------|-------4-----|--------------------------|
B:--------3-----|--------3------|-------3-----|--------------------------|
G:--------2-----|--------2------|-------2-----|--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--|
D:--------0-----|--------0------|-------0-----|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
A:--------0-----|--------0------|-------0-----|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
D:-0------------|-0-------------|-0-----------|--------------------------|

Now it goes into "Shiney copper crushing me...." The following riff is played
four times. I can't exactly tell, but there may be another guitar playing the
same notes as the vocals.

e:------------------------|---------------------------|
B:------------------------|---------------------------|
G:------------------------|---------------------------|
D:-5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5-|-5--5--5--5--5--6--6--6--6-|
A:-5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5-|-5--5--5--5--5--6--6--6--6-|
D:-5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5-|-5--5--5--5--5--6--6--6--6-|

e:------------------------|---------------|
B:------------------------|---------------|
G:-7-------7------7--7--7-|-6-------------|
D:-7----0--7------7--7--7-|-6------7------|
A:-5----0--5------5--5--5-|-4------7------|
D:------0-----------------|--------7------|

After that comes the pre-outro, which is the solo (some scales that I have no
clue to played with a wah-wah). The rhythm part of the solo is pretty fun
(and much easier) to play.

e:--------------------|------------------|-------------------|
B:--------------------|------------------|-------------------|
G:--------------------|------------------|-------------------|
D:--------------------|------------------|-------------------|
A:-7b(8)--5-----------|-------4b(5)------|-7b(8)--5----------|
D:------------7---\3--|-5--3-------------|-----------7---\3--|

e:-----------------|
B:-----------------|
G:-----------------|
D:-----------------|
A:-----------------|
D:-5--3-----0------|

For the outro, just play the intro riff four times.

LYRICS
======
You know what it feels like
To be naked, to be ground by
Giant Pennywheels
I dream

No one, yeah, there's no one
That can hear rollin' sounds like
Giant Pennywheels
I'm dyin', yeah yeah
I'm tryin', yeah
I dream

Shiney copper crushing me
I watch the wheel roll in your eye
Pick one up and think it's luck
I'm willing and I'm ready, I'll subscribe
I'm thinkin' and I'm thinkin' and I'm wasted

You know what it feels like
To be naked, to be ground.
