Change The World Tab
Title: "Change the World"
Artist: "Eric Clapton"

I got a request for this, so I decided I was up to the challenge.
I hope this sounds good.  Clapton seems to like the key of E.
Have fun, and good luck!

Lyrics

INTRO:

There is another guitar here that I haven't tabbed, but you can figure that one out.
I think these two parts are actually two different guitars, but I'm not sure.

   E       A     E                     E       A   E
   +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +

   E       A       E                     E               A          B
   +   +   +   +       +   +   +   +     +      +        +     +        +   +   +       +

A:-------------------|-----------------|---------------------------^2-|-------------2h4-----|
E:-------------------|-----------------|------------------------------|-------------------0-|

This is the basic part behind the verse:

     If I could reach the stars          Pull one down for you
   E       A     E                     E       A   E
   +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +
e:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|---0-----0-----0-|

D:---2-----2-----2-|-----------------|---2-----2---2---|-----------------|
A:---------0-------|-----------------|---------0-------|-----------------|
E:-0-------------0-|-----------------|---0---------0---|-----------------|


      Shining on my heart                So you could see the truth
   E       A     E                     E       A   E
   +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +

D:---2-----2-----2-|-----------------|---2-----2---2---|-----------------|
A:---------0-------|-----------------|---------0-------|-----------------|
E:-0-------------0-|-----------------|---0---------0---|-----------------|


     Then this love I have inside     is everything it seems
   A       D     E                       E     D     A
   +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +

A:-0---------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
E:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|



     But for now I find                  it's only in my dreams
   E       A     E                     E       A     G#
   +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +
e:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|---4---------4---|
B:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|---------4-8-----|
G:---0h1---2-----4-|---2---4-----2-4-|---4-----2-------|-------5---------|
D:---2-----2-----2-|-----------------|---2-----2-----6-|-----6-----------|
A:---------0-------|-----------------|---------0-----6-|-----------------|
E:-0-------------0-|-----------------|---0-----------4-|-----------------|

Here's the chorus.  There isn't much guitar, so just strum this:

          F#m    G#     C#m
That I can    change the world
F#m           G#               C#m
I will be the sunlight in your universe
F#m               G#              C#m    Cm    Bm
You will think my love was really some - thing good
     A    E     G#m Gm F#m
Baby if I could cha - nge the world

Clapton does this after the chorus:

   E       A       E                 E              A              E
   +   +   +   +       +  +  +  +    +     +        +     +        +   +       +       +
e:-------------0-----|-------------|----------------------------|-----------------------------|
B:-------0-----------|-------------|----------------------------|-----------------------------|
G:---0h1---2-----2/4-|-------------|---2/4----42p0-2--0--------|-----------------------------|
D:---2-----2---------|-------------|----------------------2p0-2-|----------2---------------2--|
A:-------------------|-------------|----------------------------|------2h4-----0h2-0h2-0h2----|
E:-------------------|-------------|----------------------------|-----------------------------|

He continues into another verse, and plays the same as the last verse

Then a chorus, which has a bit added to the end:

That I can change the world
I will be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
     A    C#m   Bm Bbm A      E
Baby if I could cha - nge the world
     A    C#m   Bm Bbm A
Baby if I could cha - nge the world

Here's the solo:

LYRICS:

If I could reach the stars I'd pull one down for you
Shine it on my heart so you could see the truth
That this love I have inside is everything it seems
But for now I find it's only in my dreams


CHORUS
That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world


If I could be king even for a day
I'd take you as my queen I'd have it no other way
And our love will rule in this kingdom we have made
Till then I'd be a fool wishin' for the day


CHORUS
That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world
Baby if I could change the world


GUITAR SOLO


CHORUS
That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world
Baby if I could change the world
Baby if I could change the world

About the artist behind Change The World Tab:

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".
