Watching The Wheels Chords (ver 5) - John Lennon


 
Watching The Wheels Chords
I did this by ear; hopefully it's correct.  If you want to play the version from 
his album, "Acoustic," put a capo on the second fret.

Possibly uncommon chord shapes (I only put F in there so you didn't use the bar chord).

G/D     F       Am/G     D7/F#     Fm7      C7/G   
e 3     e 1     e 0      e 2       e 1      e 0
b 3     b 1     b 1      b 1       b 4      b 1
g 4     g 2     g x      g 2       g 1      g 3
d 5     d 3     d 2      d 0       d 1      d 2
a 5     a x     a 0      a x       a 3      a x

Watching the Wheels

C/G                   Fmaj7/C       C/G
People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing
                                      Fmaj7/C           C/G
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin
Fmaj7/C         Dm                 G
When I say that I'm o.k. well they look at me kind of strange
Fmaj7/C           Dm               G
Surely you're not happy now you no longer play the game

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I'm doing fine watching shadows on the wall
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball

Fmaj7/C  G/D                       C                   Am
I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
Fmaj7/C  Dm                        F
I really love to watch them roll
G                       Am        Am/G   D7/F#   F
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
       Fm7              C/G  Fmaj7/C  C/G
I just had to let it go

Ah, people asking questions lost in confusion
Well I tell them there's no problem, only solutions
Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind
I tell them there's no hurry
I'm just sitting here doing time

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
                          C/G  D7/F#  F
I just had to let it go
       Fm7                C/G  D7/F#  F                   
I just had to let it go
       Fm7                C7/G
I just had to let it go

About the artist behind Watching The Wheels Chords:

John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE (born John Winston Lennon; 9 October 1940–8 December 1980) was an English rock musician, singer, songwriter, artist, and peace activist who gained worldwide fame as one of the founding members of The Beatles. As a member of the group, Lennon was one of the lead vocalists and co-wrote the majority of the band's songs with bassist Paul McCartney.

In his solo career, Lennon wrote and recorded songs such as "Give Peace a Chance" and "Imagine". Lennon revealed his rebellious nature and wit on television, in films such as A Hard Day's Night, in books such as In His Own Write, and in press conferences and interviews. He was controversial through his work as a peace activist, artist, and author.

Lennon had two sons: Julian Lennon, with his first wife Cynthia Lennon, and Sean Ono Lennon, with his second wife, avant-garde artist Yoko Ono. After a self-imposed retirement from 1976 to 1980, Lennon reemerged with a comeback album, but was murdered one month later in New York City on 8 December 1980. In 2002, respondents to a BBC poll on the 100 Greatest Britons voted Lennon into eighth place. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Lennon number 38 on its list of "The Immortals: The Fifty Greatest Artists of All Time" and ranked The Beatles at number one.
