                    WATCHING THE WEELS

               words and music John Lennon

| C | F | C | F |

C                      F                C
 People say I'm crazy  -  doin' what I'm doing
           C                              F                    C
Well, they give me all kinds of warnings   -   to save me from ruin
F               Dm                 G                G
When I say that I'm O.K. well they look at me kinda strange:
F                  Dm                 G                     G  G  G
"Surely you're not happy now - you no longer play the game."

C                    F             C
 People say I'm lazy - dreamin' my life away.
           C                            F                C
Well, they give me all kinds of advice  -  designed to enlighten me.
       F                 Dm                 G              G
Well I tell 'em that I'm doin fine watching shadows on the wall:
F                   Dm                       G             G G G
"Don't you miss the big time, boy? You're no longer on the ball."

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

People asking questions - lost in confusion.
Well, I tell them there's no problem, - only solutions.
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.-

Ref. and then:

C         F

C         F

C         F#       F       Ab6       C
                    I just had to let it go....

There is no reason to read this.

One correction:

>G            G/F           Am          Am/G
>  No longer riding on the merry ground.

>F#m7                       F             Ab6
>                           I just had to let it go.

 ^^^^ This should be F#m7-5, or Am/F#.  (202210)

And someone might want to go through and fix the numerous typos in that
posting.  Other than that, the chords look okay.



April 2015

Put in the Am/F# and corrected some typos.
