Watching the Wheels  John Lennon

This is how the song appears on the box set and the Acoustic album. To get a jis
of the strumming pattern listen to the song a few times.
It's important to note that after the second verse he adds more chords to both
verse and chorus.
All in all this is a very simple song and quite fun to play.

[C]People say I'm crazy [Fmaj7]doing what I'm d[C]oing
[C]They give me all kings of warnings [Fmaj7]to save me from [C]ruin
[Fmaj7]When I say that [Dm]I'm OK well they look at me kind of strange
[Fmaj7]"Surely you're not [Dm]happy now you no [G]longer play the game?"
[C]People say I'm lazy [Fmaj7]dreaming my [C]life away
[C]Well they give me all kinds of advice [Fmaj7]designed to [C]enlighten me
Fmaj& Dm G
I tell them that I'm doing fine watching the shadows on the wall
[Fmaj7]"Don't you miss the [Dm]big time boy you're no [G]longer on the ball?"
[F]I'm just[G] sitting here making the [C]wheels go round and [Am]round
[F]I [Dm]love to watch them roll[F]
[G]No longer riding on the [Am]merry-go-rou[Am/G]nd
[F]I just[F7] had to let it go[C] [C/B] [C/A] [C/G] [Fmaj7]
[C]People asking questions, [Fmaj7]lost in conf[C]usion
Well I t[C]ell them there's no problem,[Fmaj7] only so[C]lutions
Well they s[Fmaj7]hake their heads and they [Dm]look at me as [G]if I've lost my mind
[F]I tell them there's no [Dm]hurry, I'm just [G]sitting here doing time
[F]I'm just [G]sitting here watching the [C]wheels go round and [Am]round
[F]I really [F/E]love to watch them [Dm]roll[Dm7]
[G]No longer [G7]riding on the [Am]merry-go-round[Am/G]
