The Tallest Man On Earth - Like the Weel

version in standard tuning, close enough I think

Capo 6th
    C      C/B     Am    F   G       C 
e|---------------------------3----------0-------------|

C                   C/B                     Am
Oh I wish I was the sparrow in your kid's eye
F                 G                  C
Like a fly above is summer all day long
C                   C/B                Am
On an island in the heart he has to carry
F                       G             C
Past the many you have let into your song

F                 G          C         F
And I said oh my lord why am I not strong
F                    G          C              F
Like the wheel that keeps travelers traveling on
F                 G                  C
Like the wheel that will take you home

And in the forest someone is whispering to a tree now
This is all I am so please don't follow me
And it's your brother in the shaft that I'm swinging
Please let the kindness of forgetting set me free

And he said oh my lord why am I not strong
Like the wheel that keeps travelers traveling on
Like the wheel that will take you home

And on this Sunday someone's sitting down to wonder
Where the hell among these mountains will I be?
There's a cloud behind the cloud to which I'm yelling
I could hear you sneak around so easily

And I said oh my lord why am I not strong
Like the branch that keeps hangman hanging on
Like the branch that will take me home

The last line of the chorus should lead with a Dm (as opposed to an F). Otherwise, sounds great!
