SOMEONE LIKE YOU
Eric Clapton

Transcribed by Steve Garner ([email protected])

This song was released in 1975 as the B-side of
the "Knockin on Heaven's Door" single. It's now
available on the Crossroads box set. This is a
fairly mellow tune written by Arthur Louis.

[Intro] G  G  C  D  G

[Verse 1]
G                      Am
I got up this morning and fell out of bed
D                         G
Trying to make it to the door
                        Am
The wind was high, I didn't have much time
D                       G      D
Trying to find a man to score
Em                        Am
And then you came up on the other side
D                 G
To brighten up my day
        Am
I knew right away
D                      G    C   D
That this could be my day

[Chorus]
G             Am
Someone like you
D                         G   C   D
Could make me change my ways
G             Am
Someone like you
D                         G   C   D
Could turn my nights into days

[Verse 2]
G                 Am
There you were, standing
D               G
On a crowded street
                           Am
You looked so good, though the air was bad
D                   G    C    D
Walking through the fog

[Chorus]
G             Am
Someone like you
D                         G   C   D
Could make me change my ways
G             Am
Someone like you
D                         G   C   D
Could turn my nights into days

[Solo chords] G  Am  D  G  C  D  G  Am  D  G  D

[Verse 3]
Em                    C
I want to thank you, thank you now
D                               G    C   D
For getting me back on my feet again
G                       Am
I want to thank you, thank you now
D                               G    C   D
For getting me back on my feet again

[Chorus]
G             Am
Someone like you
D                         G   C   D
Could make me change my ways
G             Am
Someone like you
D                         G   C   D
Could turn my nights into days
G             Am
Someone like you
D                         G   C   D
Could make me change my ways
G             Am
Someone like you
D                         G   D   Em   C   D   C   Am   G
Could turn my nights into days

About the artist behind Someone Like You:

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".
