So I've got a guitar. I know 8 or so chords, and can string together 2 or 3 to play Heart of Gold. But where do I go from here?

You might want to try Amazon and get a Neil Young Songbook. Most of his stuff is not too complicated and sounds great !
The Needle and the damage done is a great song to pick.
I could tab it out as a video lesson / tutorial if it would help. I cant sing it but I can do the guitar part !

Search for some tabs. Most pop songs only have 4 or 5 chords in the whole song!!!
You could start learning your scales, or learn more chords, the possibilities are endless.

Where do you want to go? What styles do you like? Bands?Favorite guitarist?

Anything by Gary Rossington (Skynyrd) or Neil Young would be great. I just need to learn to apply what I know in a way better than "strum this one for a minute, then change to that one."

Gary is a great guitarist, and even more impressive considering he started out as a drummer. It will take you a while to fully grasp his stuff. Neil will be a little easier.
Like Doc said - Amazon for the books (I'm about the same on the singing part too).
If you're on a budget, check out:
The blue scroll menu on the right lists all the songs/tabs for virtually all of Neil's stuff. Most of them are pretty good.
I always liked the line from Old Ways:
"Economy was gettin' so bad I had to lay myself off
but workin' was a habit I had so I kept showin' up anyway"
