"Whirlwind" as written by and David Samuels....
A whirlwind came into my life
And it tried to rescue me
Will you come, will you go
Will you tell me seriously
Twistin', burnin', my thoughts turnin'
Back to you again
Sweet thing take me to the end

You better dig
And take a look inside yourself

So the story goes or so I've heard it said
That you left your land to trade for a place
So far away, so out of date
That only you could understand
And at the ceiling of my feeling
Backed up against the wall
Sweet thing you know I'd fall in line

You better dig
And take a look inside yourself

She wants to be free
And I want to know
That she wants to be free
And I want to know

    General Commenthey yall. i got the tab to this song.i'm not sure of the chord names though. the main riff goes like this:
    e-0--0--0
    B-5--3--2
    G-0--0--0 You can figure out how many times to strum
    D-5--4--2
    A-0--0--0
    E---------
    and the break goes like this:
    e-----------------2-2
    B-----------------3-3
    G-4-4-4-4-------2-2
    D-4-4-4-4-------0-0
    A-2-2-2-2-----------
    E---------------------

    you should use fingers 2 and 3 on the main riff for the first and third chords and then use 1 and 2 on the second chord, it's much easier that way. it may take a while to get the rhythm but overall its an easy song.

    i hope this tab helped yall out. this tab is based on the song when Dispatch played it at the FleetBoston Pavilion on 6/7/02. i havent heard any other versions. this is a great song i love it. Tell me what you think of the tab.
    see ya

    General Commentalso, on spatchpatch.com you can click on 'the music' at the top of the screen and then tabs on the left...that's another variation.

    General CommentI think this is a very metaphorical take on a break-up argument.

    General Comment-Yeah, OpinionHead, you're right!
    -The lyrics are kind of simple, and a BIT repetitive, but it's a very enjoyable song about him missing his girlfriend.... or something!
    -IDK! That's my simple interpretation anyway!

    Thnx

    General CommentSome have speculated this Dispatch has a hidden Christian message behind many of their tunes. From that perspective, I remember reading a manifesto from another website that mentioned an angel coming down in a whirlwind to rid the world Old Testament-style of those persecute God's chosen people. From that manifesto, I read that Dubya was quoted using the "angel in the whirlwind" reference when referring to the USA and it's military when it comes to enforcing the peace of the world. That may not have anything to do with this song, and yet it may have everything to do. This may not be about the war in Iraq, so much as the foreign policy of the USA since the end of World War II.

    General CommentI took the whirlwind to be this enigmatic woman that this guy just cannot get out of his head. He's in love with her and wants more out of her even though she could probably come or go. He would do anything if she would only be as devoted as he is.
