About This Wheel's on Fire

"This Wheel's on Fire" is a song written by Bob Dylan and Rick Danko. It was originally recorded by Dylan and the Band during their 1967 sessions, portions of which (including this song) comprised the 1975 album, The Basement Tapes. The Band's own version appeared on their 1968 album, Music from Big Pink. Live versions by the Band appear on their 1972 live double album Rock of Ages, as well as the more complete four-CD-DVD version of that concert, Live at the Academy of Music 1971, and the 2002 Box Set of The Last Waltz (the song did not make it into the movie or the original soundtrack album).

If your memory serves you well, we're going to meet again and wait
So I'm going to unpack all my things and sit before it gets too late
No matter what, we'll come to you with another tale to tell
And you know that we shall meet again if your memory serves you well

[Chorus]
Wheel's on fire
Rolling down the road
Just notify my next of kin
The wheel shall explode

If your memory serves you well, I was going to confiscate your face
And wrap it up in a sailor's knot and hide it in your case
If I knew for sure that it was gone, and it was oh so hard to tell
And you know that we shall meet again if your memory serves you well

[Chorus]

If your memory serves you well, you'll remember that you're the one
Who called on them to call on me to get you your favors done
And after every plan had failed and there was nothing more to tell
And you know that we shall meet again if your memory serves you well

[Chorus]
