You Were There
[Verse]
C          C/B          Bb            Am7
We made the distance, yeah, we made the day.
Ab         C/G          F#sus4        B
You made all the difference 'cause you found the way.

C          C/B          Bb            Am7
Without your wisdom, Lord, where would we be
Ab         C/G          F#sus4        B
Lost in the wilderness, somewhere out at sea.


[Chorus]
G             Am7
But you were there
Bm7b5         E7
Through the days of wine and madness,
Am7     G     Em     A7         Dmaj7   D7
When I'd always put you down.

G             Am7
You were there
Bm7b5         E7
Through my joys and my sadness
Am7     G     C      D
And you never let me down.


[Instrumental] = [Verse]


[Verse]
C          C/B          Bb            Am7
You found the meaning and helped me to see
Ab         C/G          F#sus4        B
Where I was going to all that I could be.

C          C/B          Bb            Am7
Without permission you turned the key.
Ab         C/G          F#sus4        B
You climbed the prison wall deep inside of me.


[Chorus]
G             Am7
But you were there
Bm7b5         E7
Through the days of wine and madness,
Am7     G     Em     A7         Dmaj7   D7
When I'd always put you down.

G             Am7
You were there
Bm7b5         E7
Through my joys and my sadness
Am7     G     C      D
And you never let me down.

About the artist behind You Were There:

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".
