Golden Ring Tab - Eric Clapton






I like this ("Bob Dylan influenced") Clapton song!

From the album: Backless (1978)


G                C         G
He gave to you a golden ring;
D           Em       C         G
It made you happy, it made you sing.
And I played for you on my guitar;
It didn't last long, we didn't go far.


G              C          G
And though the times have changed,
D       Em
We're rearranged.
C        G         D               G
Will the ties that bind remain the same?

You came around after a while;
Everyone said that I made you smile.
It all went well, and suddenly then
You heard that he would marry again.

[Chorus]

Well I know that I have been here before;
I've trod on your wings, I've opened the door.
If I gave to you a golden ring
Would I make you happy, would I make you sing?

[Chorus 2x]

Play a little slide solo after the second refr. (in standard tunning)
