KEY:  E

[Instrumental]
B   G#m7   C#m   Amaj7
B   G#m7   A     Amaj7

[Verse 1]
B     G#m7     C#m     Amaj7
When the wind blows down this hard,
B     G#m7     A       Amaj7
Many a bond is broken.
B     G#m7     C#m     Amaj7
See the water lie on the ground
B     G#m7     A       Amaj7
From where the heavens opened.

[Verse 2]
B     G#m7      C#m     Amaj7
Lord, how will you get through this night
B     G#m7      A       Amaj7
With your dreams departed?
B     G#m7      C#m     Amaj7
And who alone will comfort you?
B     G#m7      A       Amaj7
Only the broken hearted.

[Instrumental]
B   G#m7   C#m   Amaj7
B   G#m7   A     Amaj7

[Verse 3]
B     G#m7      C#m     Amaj7
So you've gone beyond your means,
B     G#m7      A       Amaj7
Every wound is open,
B     G#m7      C#m     Amaj7
Your best laid plans are out of reach,
B     G#m7      A       Amaj7
And all your fears unspoken.

[Verse 4]
B     G#m7      C#m     Amaj7
Lord, how will you get through this night
B     G#m7      A       Amaj7
With your dreams departed?
B     G#m7      C#m     Amaj7
And who alone will comfort you?
B     G#m7      A       Amaj7
Only the broken hearted.

[Instrumental]
B   G#m7   C#m   Amaj7
B   G#m7   A     Amaj7

[Bridge]
F#             G#m
Sweet revenge is spoken then;
A              C#m
In the twilight it is gone.
F#             B  B/A
To living lies with no escape,
G#m            A
Lord, I would rather be alone.

[Instrumental]
B   G#m7   C#m   Amaj7
B   G#m7   A     Amaj7

[Verse 5]
B     G#m7      C#m     Amaj7
I press my fingers to the wood
B     G#m7      A       Amaj7
To tell you of my dreaming,
B     G#m7      C#m     Amaj7
To sing you songs from olden times,
B     G#m7      A       Amaj7
To keep the love light gleaming.

[Verse 6]
B     G#m7      C#m     Amaj7
'Cause there's a place where we can go,
B     G#m7      A       Amaj7
Where we will not be parted.
B     G#m7      C#m     Amaj7
And who alone will enter there?
B     G#m7      A       Amaj7
Only the broken hearted.

About the artist behind Broken Hearted 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".
