C                                          F
Bet you didn't think I knew how to rock 'n' roll
                                           C
Lord I got the boogie-woogie right down in my very soul
                                   D          G
There ain't no need for me to be a wallflower
                                   C
'Cause now I'm living on blues power

F  C  F  G

C                                          F
I knew all the time but now I'm gonna let you know
                           C
I'm gonna keep on rocking, no matter if it's fast or slow
                                      D       G
Ain't gonna stop until the twenty-fifth hour
                           C
'Cause now I'm living on blues power

D  F  D  G

C                                          F
Bet you didn't think I knew how to rock 'n' roll
                                           C
Lord I got the boogie-woogie right down in my very soul
                                   D          G
There ain't no need for me to be a wallflower
                                  C
'Cause now I'm living on blues power

(continue to fadeout, w/ad-lib):

I'm talkin' to you now
The boogie's gonna pull me through
Keep on, keep on, keep on keepin' on
Keep on keepin' on, keep on keepin' on....

About the artist behind Blues Power Chords:

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE (born 30 March 1945), is a English blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer. He is one of the most successful musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries,[1] garnering an unprecedented three inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (The Yardbirds, Cream, and solo). Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time[2], Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"[3] and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[4]

Although Clapton's musical style has varied throughout his career, it has always remained rooted in the blues. Clapton is credited as an innovator in several phases of his career, which have included blues-rock (with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds) and psychedelic rock (with Cream). Clapton has also achieved great chart success in genres ranging from Delta blues (Me and Mr. Johnson) to pop ("Change the World") and reggae (Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff"). Clapton also achieved fame with Derek and the Dominos through the hit song "Layla".
