Catherine Wheel  by Crowded House


     C7       Fm
No night to stay in
     C7       Fm
Bad moon is rising again
      C7  
Dice rolls 
      G#
And you burn
     C#      C7
Come down I fear
         F        A#m7
As that cold wheel turns
    C7       Fm
I know what I know
     C7            Fm
Sad clone's been sleeping around
     C7             G#
To stroke the right nerve
      C#           C7
Whose needs do I serve
      F               A#m7     C7
As Catherine's wheel turns
G#                 C#           Eb (sus4)Eb
She was always the first to say gone
G#            C#           Eb (sus4)Eb
She's got her catherine wheels on
G#        C#           C7
Always the first to say gone
    C7     Fm7      
Go kindly with him
        C7        Fm7 
To his blind apparition
       C7          Fm7
Whose face creases up
      C#        C7
With age gone grey
        F            A#m7
He'll back here one day
          G#       C#           Eb (sus4)Eb
She was always the first to say gone
G#                 C#           Eb (sus4)Eb
She's got her catherine wheels on
G#        C#           C7
Always the first to say gone
 G#        C#           C7
                         C7
She's got her catherine wheels on
  C7
Wheels on
G#     C#    Eb (sus4) Eb
Catherine wheels
G#     C#    Eb (sus4) Eb REPEAT 3 Times

D#sus2 Eb D#sus2 Eb D#sus2 Eb Ebsus4 Eb Repeat 4 Times

D#sus2 Eb D#sus2 Eb D#sus2 Eb Ebsus4 Eb
              She's gone Vanished in the night
D#sus2 Eb D#sus2 Eb D#sus2 Eb Ebsus4 Eb
Broke off the logic of light
D#sus2 Eb D#sus2 G# 
He woke Tore the covers back
                    D#sus2 Eb D#sus2 Eb D#sus2 Eb Ebsus4 Eb
(use same chord changes as before) 
Found he was empty inside
So they were told 
When the moon would rise
The best time to leave with your soul
She's gone
But towards the light

                          Eb
Watching her whole life unfold
Ebm           C#            G#
            Bruises come out dark

D#9sus4   A#11       D#9sus4   A#11   D#9sus4   A#11   
Repeat 5 times

D#sus2 Eb D#sus2   G#
 So strong was his hold on her
                         Eb Ebsus4 Eb
Regarded by some as his slave
                 G#
He spoke as in a stranger's tongue
                          Eb  Ebm
To spare us and drive you away
  C#              G7
Bruises come out dark

(dont be put off by the strange chord names...basically they are the A form you 
play at the first fret, barred futher up,and the little finger  you put on and 
off. up one fret and so on.11 th chords are basically just the top 5 strings all 
held on one (appropriate) fret.The song begins by singing G# (no)and then G 
(night).Thats probably the hardest bit.Just mail if you need to know more.

I have just noticed they play this a half tone deeper which makes playing it a whole lot easier with almost all chords in the first postion!I couldnt see how eo change my original, so just go to transpose and take it down a half tone.

last correction..the very last chord is wrong,it has to be a half tone higher..and not a seventh i dont think.so instead oy g7 in my original transpostion its f#, and if you transpose the whole thing a half tone down as i recommended above you play just G.Sorry about that.PS how do you chane an original posting??
