Alright this amazing, beautiful song was originally released on Nathaniel's debut album
known as The Wheel - Desire and Dissolving Men, but since he no longer performs as such,
and still plays the song live, I'll put it here.

Artist: The Wheel
Song: Solomon
Album: Desire and Dissolving Men



Chords used:

Em7  [-0-]   Cadd9?  [-0-]  G? [-0--]
     [-3-]           [-3-]     [-3-----------------------------]
     [-0-]           [-0-]     [-0-----------------------------] I'm not sure of these 
chord names,
     [-2-]           [-2-]     [-0-----------------------------] but the shapes are correct.
     [-2-]           [-3-]     [-2-----------------------------]
     [-0-]           [-0-]     [-3-----------------------------]

This has a typical Nathaniel strum pattern.
Using the thumb, on the down strokes of the bass notes,
and lightly picking the upstroke with the index and ring finger.


   D D U  D UU D UU DD UU  D UU D UU
[------------------------------------]
[------3----3----3------3----3----3--]
[-------0----0----0------0----0----0-] This is pretty close for the verse
[---------------------2--------------] but I don't feel the strumming is as
[----2----2----2----3-3----3----3----] important, because the song is like
[--0-0----0----0----0------0----0----] 85% vocals.

 Em7               Cadd9

Verse 1: (not a 100% percent on lyrics)

 Em7                          Cadd9
I want to be the drum (drug?), that slows me down

 Em7                   Cadd9
I want to care to not, break through

 Em7                    Cadd9
I want to have no sense, or meaning

 Em7                      Cadd9
I want to start myself, anew (on you?)

Chorus: (strumming opens up a little more)

 G                Cadd9
Aint it hard luck living, a good life
 G                Cadd9
Aint it hard luck living, a good life
 G                Cadd9
Aint it hard luck living, a good life
 G                Cadd9
Aint it hard luck living, a good life

 Em7                Cadd9
A good life


Em7                 Cadd9

 Em7                         Cadd9
I want a piece that glimmers, to show them all

 Em7                   Cadd9
I want to be delivered, from you

 Em7                     Cadd9
I want to smile but got, no reason now

 Em7                Cadd9
I want way to bench, the truth


 G                 Cadd9
Aint it hard luck, living a good life
 G                 Cadd9
Aint it hard luck, living a good life
 G                 Cadd9
Aint it hard luck, living a good life
 G                 Cadd9
Aint it hard luck, living a good life
 Em7               Cadd9
A good life

 Em7               Cadd9

 Em7

That's it. Pretty close anyway,
the picking is a little more intricate than this,
but you get the jist anyway.
