Promises
Promises
Eric Clapton

*For this song, the more simple version of G with the B string open sounds better (320003)

*In the verses, walk up from the G to the C

*Also, every time you go from a D to G,  wrap your thumb around and play the F# on the 
low E string right before the G.

*I put the walk ups in parenthesis in the first verse to show that it's a single note
and not a chord.

G                              (A)  (B)
I don't care if you never come home
C                                
I don't mind if you just 
        G
keep on rowing away on a distant sea cause
D                              (F#)  G
I don't love you and you don't love me

G
You cause commotion when you come to town
C
Give 'em a smile and they melt
       G
Having lovers and friends is all good and fine
    D                                     G
But I don't like yours and you don't like mine

C      Bm7          D   *(play with Dsus4 and Dsus2 here)
La la     la la la la la
   C      Bm7          D   (F#)  G
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                   G
I've got a problem, can you relate
Am7               G
I've got a woman callin' love hate
C                    G  
We made a vow, We'd always be friends
Am7                         G
How could we know that the promises end

C      Bm7          D    
La la     la la la la la
   C      Bm7          D
La la     la la la la la

G
I tried 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
That I'd still love you if you'd just love me

C                   G
I've got a problem, can you relate
Am7               G
I've got a woman callin' love hate
C                    G  
We made a vow, We'd always be friends
Am7                         G
How could we know that the promises end

C      Bm7          D    
La la     la la la la la
   C      Bm7          D
La la     la la la la la

*Repeat as many times as you want and end on a G

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".
