"This Wheels On Fire"
set tempo
This song is from Dylan's 1975 album 'The Basement Tapes'. It's a pretty good song. I 
you should listen to it.

If your me mory serves you well
We were goin' to meet again and wait
So I'm go in to unpack all my things
  F Dm Am
And  sit before it  gets to o late
  C Am
No  man alive will c ome to you
  C Am
With a nother tale to t ell
  C Am
But you kn ow that we shall m eet again
  F Dm Am
If your me mory se rves you w ell

  Dm F C G G7
  This wheel's on f ire, rol ling down the r oad
  C G F C
Best n otif y my ne xt of k in
  F G A
T his wheel s hall exp lode!

If your memory serves you well
I was goin' to confiscate your lace
And wrap it up in a sailor's knot
F           Dm       Am
And hide it in your case

     C                          Am
If I knew for sure that it was yours
      C                  Am
But it was oh so hard to tell
              C                  Am
But you knew that we would meet again
    F          Dm         Am
If your memory serves you well ...CHORUS

If your memory serves you well
You'll remember you're the one
That called on me to call on them
   F       Dm           Am
To get you your favors done

     C                    Am
And after every plan had failed
     C                        Am
And there was nothing more to tell
      C                   Am
You knew that we would meet again
     F          Dm        Am
If your memory served you well ...CHORUS

The second line of the verse is on Dm rather than A
the Chorus I don't think has the F after the Dm and before the C,

and the end of the chorus is (rolling down the )Road is G G7/F Em G/D
Please notify to shall explode!
C G/B F/A C/G F G A major.

I've not listened to the other versions but this is how the Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger and the Trinity Version goes (their version is the basis of the Absolutely Fabulous TV theme tune voiced by Julie Driscoll and Ade Edmonson (Jennifer Saunder's Husband).

in the Basement Tapes version they're definitely playing a Bdim7 (B-D-F-Ab) in the second line of the verse :~)
