WHEEL OF FORTUNE
Traditional, additional lyrics by Arthur Hinds
Arrangement Emerald Rose 2005

After morning comes the evening
And after evening comes another day
After one love there comes another
The wheel of fortune will have its way

When I'd money in every pocket
Every offer was made to me
But the blasted tower is my only home now
and the rubble of my life is all I can see

(chorus:)
So turn around you wheel of fortune
Turn around and rise for me
Life of man is most uncertain
No one can say what will be

Fortune's wheel is forever turning
It lays the highest...lays the highest by the hill
One moment you're the emperor the next you're the fool
The cards are drawn and fall where they will
(chorus)

After morning comes the evening
And after evening comes another day
After one life comes another
It's forever turning, the wheel and the way
(chorus)
