Capo 2

A D A x2

A           D    A               E
Sometimes I tell you to just sit still
         D              Bm      A
When you know that it's time to run
A           D    A             E
Sometimes I tell you it's all over
            D              Bm    A
When you're sure that it's just begun

Chorus:
    E                 D      A
The iron wheel slowly spins around
   E                                     D             A
It takes you from the cradle 'til you're six feet underground
    E                                   D                 F#m
You push and pull against it but you'll ride it 'til it's through
    A                  E                D               A           
And those who spin the wheel well those fuckers ride it too

A           D    A            E
Sometimes I tell you to move along
            D               Bm        A
When you're sure you should stand and fight
A           D    A                       E
Sometimes I tell you that you're a lucky man
        D            Bm           A
But the numbers they don't add up right

Chorus

    F#m                              D               A
The good wife rides the wheel as the years just slip away
     F#m                            D                  A
T.V. preacher rides the wheel as he leads the flock astray
     F#m                             D            A
Lady Justice rides the wheel but her balance is unsure
          F#m                               D               E
Cause the truth it lies in pieces scattered on the newsroom floor

A           D    A               E
Sometimes I tell you to just let go
            D               Bm      A
When you're sure you should hold on tight
A           D    A                          E
Sometimes I tell you you're time will never come
            D              Bm            A
When you're sure that your time's come tonight

Chorus

A E D A

About the lyrics: "sometimes they'll tell you" is better than "sometimes I tell you"... It makes more sense, I guess !!! ;-)
Thanks for posting, anyway !!!

And by the way, I might be wrong, but it sounds better to me when playing an E instead of Bm in the verses (???)

I think it sounds better with barre chords... Haven't seen it played so I dunno how tow does it, this is just how I think it sounds best
