C#               A
All alone had to talk about it
B                         G#m
Like a two-edged sword, he touched you and he stabs me
C#                      A
All along I knew you were a phony girl.

Sit behind the mask where you control your world.

C#                   A
Yesterday he had you in his arms
B                               G#m
When I'm holding you I feel his bitter charms

I can't judge what you do to me.
B                                  G#m
Camouflage the truth, Indulge your fantasy.

There is nothing in your eyes; that's the way you cry.
Amaj7                          B
All is grand, all is bright. You're just studying my mind.
Amaj7                          B
There is nothing in your eyes; that's the way you cry.
Amaj7                          B                            Eb   D

Was I invited to your masquerade?
B                                 G#m                     
Well the party's over so now take off your face
C#                    A
You say love but it's hard to see
B                                G#m
When you're in his arms throwing rocks at me.

           C#          A
Who do you love? Is it me now?
      B                 G#m
Is it him babe? I don't know.

I walk around stuck within my gloom

When I come to you and sit in your room
C#                     A    
Truth is new , I have not a trace

About the artist behind Behind The Mask 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".
