    The Needle and the Damage Done

    Neil Young

     

    Instrumental Verse

     

    10                                           8

         I caught you knockin' at my cellar door

    7                                   6
      I love you, baby, can I have some more?

    8        1                      0          0
    Ooh, ooh, the damage done.

    10                             8
         I hit the city and I lost my band

    7                                           6
       I watched the needle take another man

    Gone, gone, the damage done.

         I sing the song because I love the man

       Milk. blood, to keep from running out.


    10                                             8
         I've seen the needle and the damage done

    7                             6
       A little part of it in everyone
