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.
