Shipwrecked in the Eighties  Kris Kristofferson

Shipwrecked in the Eighties--Kris Kristofferson
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
[D]Well you fight like the devil to just keep your head above [A]water
Chained to whatever you've got that you can't throw a[D]way
And you're shooting through space on that river of life that you're ri[A]din
And it's swirlin' and suckin' ya deeper on d[G]own e[A]veryd[D]ay
So you [G]turn to your trusty old partner to share some old f[D]eelins
And you [A]find to your shock that your faithful companion is [D]gone (so long Tonto)
And the [G]truth slowly dawns that you're lost and alone in deep [D]water
And you [D]don't even know how much longer there i[D]s to [G]go [Em]on
solo (intro chords)
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
