VERSE 1: 
D                                                          A 
Well you fight like the devil to just keep your head above water 
                                                     D 
Chained to whatever you've got that you can't throw away 
                                                                      A 
And you're shooting through space on that river of life that you're ridin 
                                            G    A    D 
And it's swirlin' and suckin' ya deeper on down everyday 
 
CHORUS 1: 
       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 
        D                                      D    G  Em 
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 
 
CHORUS 2: 
 
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
