Chained To The Wheel Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: Annie's Song

This song appears on three albums, and was first released on the Different Directions album, and has also been released on The Gift You Are and The John Denver Collection - Annies Song albums.


Know what you really need
You cant get enough
Too many mouths to feed
Aint life enough
Call this survival
Dont pray for a sign

Know what you really want
You cant get it back
Down on the water front
Better watch out Jack
Nights on the mainline
Rust on the rail

Ive seen em swindle this town
Ive seen em tumble it down
Ive seen red rivers, fire and steel
Ive felt the thunder chained to the wheel

Know what you mean to me
Goes deeper than that
Cant fight your destiny
Dont know where its at
Dont look for lightn
Or pray for a sign

Ive heard the legends
Ive watched the skies
I feel the power
The flame in your eyes

Ive seen em swindle this town
Ive seen em tumble it down
Ive seen red rivers, fire and steel
Ive felt the thunder chained to the wheel
