The Iron Wheel

Nightwatchman

 ADAE
 Sometimes I tell you to just sit still
 DBmA
When you know that it's time to run
 ADAE
 Sometimes I tell you it's all over
 DBmA
When you're sure that it's just begun

Chorus:
 EDA
The iron wheel slowly spins around
 EDA
It takes you from the cradle 'til you're six feet underground
 EDF#m
You push and pull against it but you'll ride it 'til it's through
 AEDA
And those who spin the wheel well those fuckers ride it too

 ADAE
 Sometimes I tell you to move along
 DBmA
When you're sure you should stand and fight
 ADAE
 Sometimes I tell you that you're a lucky man
 DBmA
But the numbers they don't add up right

Chorus

 F#mDA
The good wife rides the wheel as the years just slip away
 F#mDA
T.V. preacher rides the wheel as he leads the flock astray
 F#mDA
Lady Justice rides the wheel but her balance is unsure
 F#mDE
Cause the truth it lies in pieces scattered on the newsroom floor

 ADAE
 Sometimes I tell you to just let go
 DBmA
When you're sure you should hold on tight
 ADAE
 Sometimes I tell you you're time will never come
 DBmA
When you're sure that your time's come tonight

Chorus

 AEDA
