WATER ON THE GROUND
Eric Clapton

from the album "Crossroads 2: Live in the Seventies" (1996)

This song has only 2 main picking patterns. Listen to
the album to hear when you should play each one. The
first one is played throughout the majority of the song,
and the second one comes in around the third line of each
verse, or what you could call the "chorus". Play it once,
then go back to repeating the first one.

LYRICS:

Water on the ground, cloud on the sun
Moon on the rise, and the wind on the run
Cause you know it's only water
Water on the ground

Snow is falling, weather is cold
Maybe I'm just getting old
And I think it's only water
Water on the ground

Back to the rivers, back to the sea
Keeps on running, just like me
But you know it's only water
Water on the ground

About the artist behind Water On The Ground 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".
