Spinnin wheel

Blood Sweat and Tears


        What goes up must come down
Spinning wheel got to go 'round
Talkin' 'bout your troubles it's a cryin' sin
        Ride a painted pony let the spinnin' wheel spin
You got no money and you got no home
Spinning wheel all alone
Talking 'bout your troubles and you never learn
Ride a painted pony let the spinning wheel turn
        Bridge: Did you find the directing sign
                On the straight and narrow highway
                Would you mind a reflecting sign
		     Ab           Ab/G <-------------- yes, really

Just let it shine within your mind
Ab Bb C D D7#9 D7#9(octave)
And show you the colors that are real

OK for the first verse, but on the subsequent verses the horns play
        x7678x 5x567x x5456x 3x345x

The Ab is played with an added Bb on top: xx6546

The D is actually DaddE for the first couple bars, then Am7/D. And
those horn chords aren't D7#9 at all; rather, they're built up in fourths
from F:
F4/7 (F-Bb-Eb) x888xx
F7#9sus4 (F-Bb-Eb-Ab) x8889x
The jazz break on the LP version is E7#9-A13-D7#9-G13 repeated several
times, then E7#9-Eb7#9-D7#9.
And then the chord progression at the end is
                                   where the (Eb) is a single note played on trombone.
