Wondering
Lyrics transcribed by: Brian Whitman
Music transcribed by: Kevin Watson
John Burns
On the album the song just starts, but live, Todd usually
kicks some bass skin then they climb into the tune as such:

Theme 1 (strumming with ecstasy):
  & 4 &   1   2  3  4    1  2  3 & 4 &
|-------|-----3-------|--3-------------|
|-------|-----3-------|--3-------------|
|-------|-----0-------|--0-------------|
|-------|-----0-------|--2-------------| simile for intro
|-------|-----2-------|--3-------------|
|-0-1-2-|--3--3-------|----------0-1-2-|
              G          C

Just before each stanza, Houser throws in this blues lick:
|----------|
|----------|
|-3/5-0-0--|
|-3/5-0-0--|
|----------|
|----------|

Theme 1:
I've been working
'neath The grey sky
And I'm wonderin'
Still, I'm wondering why
Must I lay low
In a room full of strangers?
Well, I'm thinking
Thinking makes the danger
My emotions they get all tangled up and
My heart has just turned 'round

Theme 2 (played in triplets):
   /  /  /  /  /    / / / /   / / / /

|------------2-3-|---2-----|-3-------|
|----------------|-1-3-----|---------|
                     strum

Theme 1:
Now I'm watching
Look into my t.v.
And I'm thinking
Wondering about the things I see
And I see your world
Worthless stranger
And I get thinking
Thinking starts and makes it bigger
All convictions they get all tangled up and
Our heart has just turned round, round, round again

(Theme 2)

A little rough but you get the idea.
Then back to that blues lick noted earlier.

Theme 1:
I've been driving
Thinking about you and me
And I'm thinking
Wonderin' 'bout the things I see
When you treat your heart
Hold you like a stranger
And I've been thinking
Little thinking makes the danger
Our intentions they get all tangled up and
Our hearts have just turned round, round, round again

(Theme 2) (x2)
