"The Wheel" (Rosanne Cash)
Transcribed with no permission whatsoever by Marc Hirsh
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 
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.

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.
