...written by David Wiffen, an Ottawa guy, one of the classic headed-for-stardom-then-crashed-and-burned figures of Canadian music. Thankfully he is doing alright now and still performing in a fairly low-key way, has been hosting an open stage in a local pub the past year or two.

DRIVING WHEEL*
Written by David Wiffen
As sung by Tom Rush on "Tom Rush" (1965)

1. I just came up on the midnight special. Hey, how about that?
My car broke down in Texas, stopped dead in her tracks.
I just called to tell you that I need you.
Just called to tell you how I feel.

CHORUS: I feel like some old engine, lost my driving wheel.
I feel like some old engine, lost my driving wheel.

2. They took my money on the night train; was a terrible fight.
I gave my promise I would be there with you by Saturday night.
I want to tell you that I need you.
I need to tell you how I feel.

3. You can't say much in a phone call, babe—you know how it is.
But I have to tell you one sure [or "short"?] thing. Won't you listen to this:
I want to tell you that I love you, babe.
I want to tell you just how I feel.


[* Title varies. On David Wiffen's self-titled album (1971), it was called DRIVING WHEEL. On his album "South of Somewhere" (1999), it was called LOST MY DRIVING WHEEL. On Tom Rush's 2nd self-titled album (1970) it was DRIVING WHEEL; on 3 later albums it was LOST MY DRIVING WHEEL. Greg Harris and Ray Wylie Hubbard recorded it as DRIVIN' WHEEL. Brothers of a Feather recorded it as DRIVING WHEEL. Cowboy Junkies, The Byrds, and Roger McGuinn recorded it as LOST MY DRIVING WHEEL.

There are other songs titled DRIVIN' WHEEL or DRIVING WHEEL.]
