NOTES: This song is one of Eric's best ballads, but
       unfortunately it's not very well-known. It is
       from his 1983 album "Money and Cigarettes" and
       it features both acoustic and electric guitar
       work. An acoustic strums the chords indicated
       above each line of tab, while the electric plays
       the tab parts.

LYRICS:

Pretty girl, you are the light of my life
I mean my everything
You are the one I chose to make my wife
That?s why you wear my ring

And when I?m feeling down and out
You are the one who will bail me out
My love will always guide me home

Pretty girl, my pretty girl
Oh pretty girl, my pretty girl

Pretty girl, don?t ever say goodbye
Don?t ever let me be
If you do, you know that I would die
You mean that much to me

And when I?m feeling low and blue
You always know just what to do
My love will always guide me home

My pretty girl, oh pretty girl
My pretty girl, oh pretty girl

And when I?m feeling down and out
You?re the one who will bail me out
My love will always guide me home
My pretty girl

Pretty girl, hear what I have to say
It?s something you should know
You brought me sunshine on my darkest day
That?s why I love you so

And when my wandering day is through
I?ll always hurry back home to you
My love will always guide me home

My pretty girl, oh pretty girl
My pretty girl, oh pretty girl....

About the artist behind Pretty Girl Tab:

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".
