Key: B major       Solo: B minor pentatonic with some major scale riffs

With swing: 

E  D  B7  A  G  E
E  D  B7  A  G  E

[Verse 1]
Caught up in a whirlwind, can't catch my breath.
Knee deep in hot water, broke out in cold sweat.
Can't catch a turtle, in this rat race.
                  G#m7  E9                E D B7 A G E (x2)
Feels like I'm losing, at a breakneck pace.

(same chords progression)

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.
Thank God it never found me, would have been the end.

            E9                          B9
Walkin' the tight rope, steppin on my friends
            E9                            B9
Walkin' the tight rope, was a shame and a sin.
             E9                            B9
Walkin' the tight rope, between wrong and right.
             A         E9
Walkin' the tight rope, both day and night.  (Solo)

[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

Lookin' back in front of me, in the mirror's grin.
Through eyes of love I see, I'm really lookin at a friend
We've had all our problems, that's the way life is.
My heart goes out to others, who are there to make amends.

(same as above)

(Walkin' the tightrope) Trying to make it right
Every day and every night
Bring it all around.
From the lost to found.
Streched around the world.
Save the boys and girls.
Let's make it right.
Do it, do it tonight.
Walkin the tightrope.

The G# over the last 'tightrope' in the chorus should be F7 I do believe. That would follow standard blues progression. I do appreciate these chords! Thanks for sharing!

It is a b#m. Look at Marty Swartz Tightrope on Youtube. He explains it all. There is an A chord missing also.
