Man In Love
NOTES: This is a catchy little blues shuffle from
       Eric's "Money and Cigarettes" album which 
       was released in 1983. This song has three
       guitars playing - two doing the blues riff
       patterns and one playing the licks and fills.
       The chords and blues riff are tabbed here,
       but I haven't tabbed any of the licks.

Here are the different blues riffs in the song
(play them during the appropriate chords):

"E" Riff            "A" Riff           "B" Riff
|------------------|------------------|------------------|
|------------------|------------------|------------------|
|------------------|------------------|------------------|
|------------------|---2---4---2---4--|---4---6---4---6--|
|---2---4---2---4--|-0---0---0---0----|-2---2---2---2----|
|-0---0---0---0----|------------------|------------------|

* At each of the spots with an "A*" both guitars play 
  two quick A-chord stabs.



Intro: play "E" Riff alone 4x, then 2nd guitar
       joins in with chords.

Verse 1:

E                     A*  E                    A*
You're always in my hair, you keep me feeling fine

I celebrate each time I realize you're really mine

That I'm a man in love

Verse 2:

E                A*   E                     A*

E
And then you showed me something, baby I had never known

Chorus:

E         A
Oh I'm a man in love

E
You look so pretty baby, from your head down to your feet

Chorus:

E      A
I'm a man in love
          E
Yes I'm a man in love
          B
I tell it everywhere I go
           A
I want the whole world to know
           E
That I'm a man in love

Verse 4:

E                            A*    E                       A*
Well the minutes seem like hours, and the hours seem like days
E
And the days they seem like years every time you go away

Chorus:

E      A
I'm a man in love
           E
Yes I'm a man in love
          B
I tell it everywhere I go
           A
I want the whole world to know
           E
That I'm a man in love
E
Yes I'm a man in love....

About the artist behind Man In Love:

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".
