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.

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.

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 (?)
