When lights close their tired eyes
I'll soon be with you, my love
To give you my dawn surprise

On the word "love," play below:

Then the second verse kicks in.  Repeat the rhythm figure indicated over the
verse, then the chorus rhythm figure as indicated.  Very self-explanatory.

After the second verse and chorus, this solo comes in.

Play the rest of the song accordingly (with correct rhythm figures and such;
once again, it is pretty self-explanatory... listen to the song).

About the artist behind Sunshine Of Your Love 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".
