No Wheels To Ride - Mott The Hoople.

This starts off as a fairly slow, sad song and then livens up with the solo before quietening down again.
One of Mott The Hoople's songs from their early years with Island Records. The basic chords are fairly 
to get the hang off, although you can experiment with picking and messing around over them to get an effect 
to that of the original song.


This is just an A chord which kind of drones for a bit, then:


G            D/F#
No wheels to ride

G            D
No wheels to travel

G            D/F#    Em    A
No tracks to take on down

G          D/F# G               D
The road I walk is getting heavy

G          D/F#     Em    A
But I must still go on

G          D/F#
And in the night

G          D
I hear the calling

G      D/F#       Em   A
As the train goes by

G         D/F#    G             D
Then all I hear is my footsteps falling

G        D/F#    Em   A
Upon the tears I cry

Chorus: (Picking over the chords seems to work well)

D         D/F#         G      A
If I could find a better way to get to you

    D        D/F#    G   A
You know that I would

D       D/F#             G
No money lines my pockets now

    A                 D           D/F#     G   A
But by the spring you know that it should

D                    D/F#               G
Well I just cant wait to catch that Greyhound bus

          A            D         D/F#     G   A
That will take me back right to your side

Post Chorus Bit:

Can't get enough

Can't get enough

Can't get enough

A                           D    D/F#   G   A
I can't get enough of your love


D   D/F#   G   A    Repeat this sequence as necessary.

Then there's a fill in bit that goes like:

D  G   D


G       D/F# G      D
So I'll go on making time

G          D/F#  Em   A
'Til I can see a way

G       D/F#  G            D
Maybe tomorrow I'll find a future

G    D/F#      Em   A
Baby all I can say


D        D/F#          G      A
If I can find a better way to get to you

    D   D/F#     G   A
You know that I will

D      D/F#             G
No money lines my pockets now

    A                 D            D/F#           G    A
But by the spring you know yes you know that it will

D           D/F#              G     A                      D        D/F#   G   A
And someday soon I'll see you there waiting at the station just for me

Post-Chorus Bit:

I just can't wait

I just can't wait

I just can't wait

For you to get back

D   D/F#   G   A       Until end.

Good song methinks.....
