Subject: CRD: Clapton's "Help Me Up"

An underappreciated gem off of the Rush soundtrack...


  HELP ME UP  by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings

Transcribed by Brian Davies ([email protected])

  [Em]  [G]  [Em]  [G]

(If that Em sounds a little too dark to you, try 022x00 (E5?))

[Em] Are you going to help me [G] or will you let me down?
[Em] I'm looking for a true love [G] but am I lost or found?
[Em] And will we cry in passion [G] or will we cry in pain?
[Em] And will our lonely teardrops [G] fill the world with rain?

  Help me [Em] up, [Bm] don't you let me [C] down. [Am]
  I'm gonna [G] wake up in [C] heaven, not the [Am] cold, cold [G] ground.

  [Em]  [G]  [Em]  [G]

[Em] Can't you hear the lovers [G] crying in the night?
[Em] They spend their whole lives trying; [G] still can't get it right.
[Em] I don't know where we're going [G] but I guess we'll start
[Em] And just to show that I mean it, [G] baby here's my heart.

  Chorus

(Walk it up hard on the bass: G G B B C C D D)

[D] Living on my [D#dim] feelings, [Em] feelings all I [G] know.
[C] Baby once we [D] touch it, we'll [C] never let it [G] go.

(I'm guessing on the D#dim -- he pulls something weird out of his hat,
and this sounds decent.)

  [Em]  [G]  [Em]  [G]

About the artist behind Help Me Up Chords:

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".
