/---------------------------------------------------------------------------\
|note: this is not the exact FILL RIFF. when listening to the track, i      |
|      could not discern any of the playing, so i came up with this. it is  |
|      somewhat similar, however not the real riff, and fits in very well   |
|      with whatever else is going on at the time. you want the real thing, |
|      do it yourself.                                                      |

every time she starts to love,   she brings eyesight to the blind

you know her daddy gave her magic, i can tell by the way she walks
you know her daddy gave her magic, i can tell by the way she walks
every time she starts to shake, the dumb begin to talk

she's got the power to heal you, never fear
she has got the power to heal you, never fear
just one word from her lips and the deaf can hear

she's got the power to heal you, never fear
she has got the power to heal you, never fear
just one word from her lips and the deaf can hear

About the artist behind Eyesight To The Blind:

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".
