"Wheels" as written by Christopher Hillman and Gram Parsons....
We've all got wheels
To take ourselves away
We've got the telephones to say
What we can't say
We've all gone higher
And higher every day
Come on wheels take this boy away
We're not afraid to ride
We're not afraid to die
So come on wheels take me home today
Come on wheels take this boy away

Now when I feel
My time is almost up
And destiny is in my right hand
I'll turn to him
Who made my faith so strong
Come on wheels make this boy a man
We're not afraid to ride
We're not afraid to die
Come on wheels take me home today
Come on wheels take this boy away
Come on wheels take this boy away

    General CommentGram Parsons wrecked his BSA motorcycle, causing a gash on his leg. The song was written about motorcycles, although they are not specifically mentioned. Parsons came up with the line "destiny is in my right hand" which is a sly reference to the throttle of the motorcycle.
