Lyrics:
What goes up  must come down           [cowbell enters]
        Spinnin' wheel got to go 'round        [full drum kit enters]
        Talkin' 'bout your troubles it's a cryin' sin
        D7 [N.C.]                      D7#9
        Ride a painted pony let the spinnin' wheel spin

Verse 2:

           E7#9    A13          D7#9    G
        You got no money and you got no home
        E7#9      A13  D7#9  G [no horns]
        Spinnin' wheel all alone
        E7#9               A13              D7#9   G
        Talkin' 'bout your troubles and you never learn
        D7 [N.C.]                      D7#9
        Ride a painted pony let the spinnin' wheel turn

        Did you find the directing sign on the
        Abadd2              Gadd2
        Straight and narrow highway
        Cadd2            Bbadd2
        Would you mind a reflecting sign
        Abadd2             G [bass]
        Just let it shine within your mind
        Ab/G              Bb              C
        And show you the colors that are real

Verse 3:

        Someone is waiting just for you
        E7#9      A13   D7#9      G [trombone: D-}E slide]
