Here are some of my comments in order to improve tab that I found
at nevada. I'd like to thank Chuck Dolese for contributing Tightrope-SRV
to the net. Please take time to improve this if you know the song..
My comments are labelled with "UJD" at the end...

The intro seems to be arpeggios off the chords...like
E D B & A G E. This is'nt reflected in the tab above though...UJD.

   B9         E9     A     G

Are A and G parts of the verse??  It seems to me the chords to the
verses were B9 (As above)  G#m E9  and the intro stuff following that. I've
written this against the lyrics I got from nevada.----UJD



B9
Caught up in a world wind cant catch my breath, knee deep in hot water

broke out in cold sweat, cant catch the turtle in this rat race feels like
     G#m7     E9                  E-D-B7  A-G-E
I'm losing time at breakneck pace.



The chorus is quite correct...(As Chuck Dolese wrote below..) except the A and
G below should (IMHO) be replaced by A and E9(?)......UJD.

Song::

  INTRO 2x

Verse 1:
                         B9
  Caught up in a world wind 
  Can't catch my breath, 
  Knee deep in hot water 
  Brake out in cold sweat
  Can't catch the turtle
  In this rat race 
                        Abm  E9
  Feels like I'm losing time 
  At breakneck pace.

  INTRO 2x

Verse 2:
                       B9
  Afraid of my own shadow
  In the face of grace
  Heart full of darkness
  Spotlight on my face
  There was love all around me
  But I was looking for revenge
                           Abm  E9
  Thank God it never found me
  Would've been the end

  MIDRO 2x

Chorus 1:
                     E9
  Walking the tightrope
                     B9
  Steppin on my friends
                     E9
  Walking the tightrope
                     B9
  Was a shame and a sin
                     E9
  Walking the tightrope
                     B9
  Between wrong and right
              A         E
  Walking the tightrope
               B
  Both day and night

  MINIRO 1x

Solo 1:
  (I don't have time yet to type it in.)
  (rhythm uses standard blues progression in B)
  B9 E9 ...

then solo ends ...

  INTRO 2x

Verse 3:
                          B9
  Lookin back in front of me
  In the mirror's a grin
  Through eyes of love I see
  I'm really lookin at a friend
  There's a whole lot of problems
  That's the way life is
                       Abm  E9
  My heart goes out to others
  Who are there to make amends

  MIDRO 2x

Chorus 2:
                     E9
  Walking the tightrope
                     B9
  Try to make it right
                     E9
  Walking the tightrope
                     B9
  Every day and every night
                     E9
  Walking the tightrope
                     B9
  Bring it all around (?)
              A         E
  Walking the tightrope
               B
  From the lost to found

  MIDRO 2x

Chorus 3:
                     E9
  Walking the tightrope
                     B9
  Stretchin round the world
                     E9
  Walking the tightrope
                     B9
  Save the boys and girls
                     E9
  Walking the tightrope
                     B9
  Let's make it right
                     E9
  Walking the tightrope
                     B9
  Do it do it tonight
                     E9
  Walking the tightrope
  
Solo 2:

  let it rip and fade out.
