Subject: TAB: Sinner's Prayer (Clapton)

Installment 5 of my From The Cradle tabs.  This one is pretty much a piano
piece, so there's not all that much here.

I've gotten pretty stuck on Reconsider Baby, so this may be it for a while...

Share and enjoy!

{"riff - &" means play the riff from the start until the line of ampersands}

[E] Lord have mercy, [A] Lord have mercy on me. [E]
[E] Lord have [A] mercy, Lord have mercy on me. [E] [riff - &]
Well if I've [B] done somebody wrong, [A] Lord, have mercy [E] if you
please. [riff]

[E] I used to have plenty of money, [A] the finest clothes in town,
[E] But bad luck and trouble overtaken me, bound to get me down.
Please have [A] mercy, Lord have mercy on me. [E] [riff - &]
Well if I've [B] done somebody wrong, [A] Lord, have mercy [E] if you
please. [riff]

[E] [A] Keep on working now, child.
[E] [A] Lord every morning.

Solo on [A] [E]
          [B] [A] [E]

{The solo starts out:
(e) |------------------------------------|
(B) |----8-10-11-----8-10-11-----8-10-11-|
(G) |--9-----------9-----------9---------|
After that, it turns into a flurry of notes, which is really hard to tab
out, and I didn't find it quite compelling enough to spend all the time.}

[E] Well if I've been a bad boy, baby, [A] I declare I'll change my ways.
[E] I don't want bad luck and trouble to follow me all my days.
Please have [A] mercy, Lord have mercy on me. [E] [riff - &]
Well if I've [B] done somebody wrong, [A] Lord, have mercy [E] if you please.

About the artist behind Sinners Prayer:

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".
