From the Emmylou Harris album, ÔElite HotelÕ
Written by Chris Hillman and Gram Parsons
Originally recorded in Ô75. A great live number, itÕs still
a favourite with Emmy on tour.
ItÕs in F but Emmy plays D shapes with the capo on the 3rd fret.
If you want to capo up, (or play in D) substitute D for F,
A for C, G for Bb and Bm for Dm.
C7 F F7 Bb F
WeÕve all got whee - eels, to take ourselves away
Dm C Bb C7
WeÕve cut the telephone, to say what we canÕt say
F F7 Bb F
We all get high - er and higher every day
Bb F C F
So come on wheels, take this boy away
Dm C F
WeÕre not afraid to ride
Dm C Bb
WeÕre not afraid to die
Bb F Bb F
So come on wheels, take me home today
Bb F C C7 F
Come on wheels, take this boy away
(same as first verse)
And when I feel my time has almost come
And destiny is in my right hand
I turn to him who made my face so strong
Come on wheels, make this boy a man.
