Subject: Lyr Add: WHEEL OF FORTUNE
Hello Shii

I have a version of Wheel of Fortune is sung by the Wise Family Band and has a similar chorus to that which you mention, with the odd numbers first, however that have the "round and round" bit afterward. This is what I can make out from the recording.

For (?) over the hills there lives a lassie
And her name I do not know
Some fine day I'm going to see her
Whether she be rich or no

Chorus
19, 17, 15, 13, 11, 9, 7 and 5, 3, 1
20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, none
Round and round go the wheels of fortune
Round and round til they weary me
Young women's hearts are so uncertain
Sad experience teaches me

Well lassie I've got gold and silver
Lassie I've got horses and land
Lassie I've got ships on the ocean
All to come at your command
Chorus

I don't want your gold and silver
I don't want your horses and land
I don't want your ships on the ocean
All I want is a good young man
Chorus
