Shipwrecked In The Eighties

	  Taken from "Broken Freedom Song: Live From San Fransisco," so it might be a different  
version than on "Repossessed."   Corrections are welcome.  
Intro:  D  A G   D  A  D  
VERSE 1:  
D                                                          A  
Well you fight like the devil to just keep your head above water  
Chained to whatever you've got that you can't throw away  
And you're shooting through space on that river of life that you're ridin  
And it's swirlin' and suckin' ya deeper on down everyday  
       G                                                  D  
So you turn to your trusty old partner to share some old feelins  
        A                                                  D  
And you find to your shock that your faithful companion is gone (so long Tonto)  
        G                                                     D  
And the truth slowly dawns that you're lost and alone in deep water  
        A                                              Bm  
And you don't even know how much longer there is to go on  
solo (intro chords)  
VERSE 2:  
Like an old holy bible you've clung to for so many seasons  
With the rules of survival in words you could still understand  
When they proved something wrong you believed in so long you go crazy  
And you're so close to holdin the cards that you hold in your hand  
Singin holy toledo I can't see the light anymore  
All those horizons that I used to guide me are gone  
And the darkness is driving me farther away from the shore  
Throw me a rhyme or a reason to try to go on
