Run So Far Tab
RUN SO FAR
Eric Clapton

from the album "Journeyman"


Transcribed by Steve Garner ([email protected])


NOTES: This song was written by Eric's friend George Harrison,
       and it appears on Eric's 1989 "Journeyman" album. The song
       has several guitar parts, including a rhythm guitar playing
       the chords, a lead guitar playing the fills, and a slide
       guitar played by George Harrison. I have transcribed the
       rhythm guitar part and some of the leads/fills.

And I sigh, knowing the mess you're in

And you know that you can't get away

Fallin' down, under par

Can't get out, can only run so far
 C       G      C     G
Lonely days, heavy heart
 C      G                   C    G

About the artist behind Run So Far 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".
