PROMISES-Eric Clapton

From album: BACKLESS and TIMEPIECES

(At '*' play F# note to walk up to the G chord, it simultes the
         bass and it's the hook of the song, if you've heard it you will recognize it)

G
I don't care if you never come home
C                                G
I don't mind if you just keep on rolling away on a distant sea cause
D                              *    G
I don't love you and you don't love me.

G
The cause of commotion when you come to town
C
Give 'em a smile and they melt
        G
And the lovers and friends are all good and fine,
    D                                *    G
But I don't like yours and you don't like mine.

G  C      G           D
La la---- la la la la la

G  C      G           D
La la---- la la la la la

G
I don't care what you do at night and
C
I don't care how you get your delights,
     G
I'll leave you alone, I'll just let it be
D                              *    G
I don't love you and you don't love me.

C                   G6/B
I've got a problem, can you relate,
Am               G
I've got a woman callin' love hate
C              G6/B
Even in doubt, We'll aways be friends
Am                         G
How could we know that the promises end?

G  C      G           D
La la---- la la la la la
G  C      G           D
La la---- la la la la la

G
I try to love you for years upon years,
C
You refuse to take me for real
     G
It's time you saw what I want you to see
    D                              *    G
And I'd still love you if you just like me.

G  C      G           D
La la---- la la la la la
G  C      G           D
La la---- la la la la la
G  C      G           D
La la---- la la la la la
G  C      G           D
La la---- la la la la la

About the artist behind Promises:

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".
