    done.                                                      

I hit the city and I lost my band,                             
I watched the needle take another man,                         
Gone, gone, the damage done.                                   

MIDDLE 8

I sing the song because I love the man,                 
I know that some of you don't understand,               
Milk-blood to keep from running out.                    

I've seen the needle and the damage done,               
A little part of it in everyone,                        
But every junkie's like a setting sun.

David Katz' Comments:
For the following measure (the first one), I usually try to get
more of the bass notes notes in by playing essentially a muted
Esus7.  What's written is a partial form of this chord.  

Also, I believe this is the     
version from Harvest (second measure below), so we may want to
either add the other G-string run as an alternate, or just
mention that this is the Harvest version.  My point is that
some people who try to access the web site may only be
familiar with the Unplugged version.
