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.

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.
