Duke Special - Freewheel

There’s 2 versions of this song as far as I’m aware, I think one is a 
radio version and the other an album version but I’m not sure. What I 
call the ‘album’ version is 3:55 long and the ‘radio’ version is 4:41 
long if that helps!

The ‘album’ version has the capo on the 3rd fret, the ‘radio’ version 
has the capo on the 2nd fret and doesn’t contain the Middle.

Anyway you should be able to figure it out. Great song. I’m fairly 
confident this is very right!

Intro:
D/F#    G    A        Bm    A    G
D/F#    G    A        Bm    A    G

Verse 1:
G                D/F#        Em             D/F#
Save me from the movies and someone else's dreams
       G                D/F#      Em             D/F#
While angels make their music and give my spirit wings
G            D/F#      Em             D/F#
I just concertina and wrap around the world
G                D/F#           Em            D/F#
Staying out 'til 6 o'clock and singing like a fool

PreChorus:
Bm         G        D          A
I've only got this morning to live
Bm               G      D           A
Look at all the colours at my fingertips

Chorus:
D/F#           G        A
I don't want to stand still
                     Bm
I just want to freewheel
                A        G
I don't want to lose this
D/F#           G        A
I don't want to stand still
                     Bm
I just want to freewheel
                A        G
I don't want to lose this

Verse 2
G                 D/F#              Em        D/F#
Save my feet from dancing with just anyone at all
G                     D/F#             Em            D/F#
Worn out shoes cause lotus blue keeps hanging in the hall
             G          D/F#       Em          D/F#
You're this face in the distance I hope to recognize but
           G                   D/F#             Em            D/F#
It's like running through deep water trying to look into your eyes

PreChorus

Chorus

Middle:
D/F#     G     A
                     Come on, come on, come on,
Bm       A     G
                     Come on, come on, come on,
D/F#     G     A
                     Come on, come on, come on,
Bm                A                 G
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on 
   D/F#     G     A          Bm    A    G
My Soul...

Chorus

About the artist behind Freewheel:

Duke Special, real name Peter Wilson, is a songwriter and performer based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. A piano-based songwriter with a romantic style and a warm, distinctly-accented voice, he has a distinctive look, with his long dreadlocks, eyeliner and outfits he describes as "hobo chic". His live performances have a theatrical style inspired by Vaudeville and music hall, and often incorporate 78s played on an old-fashioned gramophone, or sound effects from a transistor radio. He is most often accompanied by percussionist "Temperance Society" Chip Bailey, who plays cheese graters and egg whisks, a Stumpf fiddle and a Shirdi drone box, as well as the more typical drums and cymbals. Other musicians who perform with Wilson from time to time include Paul "Pilot" Wilkinson (guitar), Réa Curran (trumpet, backing vocals, accordion), Ben Castle (clarinet, saxophone), Ben Hales (bass guitar), "Professor" Ger Eaton (keyboards) and Serge Archibald III (saxophone, "ethereal background sounds", vibes).

He has released two albums, Adventures in Gramophone (2005) and Songs from the Deep Forest (2006), both of which were nominated for the Choice Music Prize. He is married to an artist and has three sons.
