Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton
Holy Mother (Guitar tab)

My source for this is the video "The Cream of Eric Clapton" which has a live
performance of this song, so it might be in a different key than the album
version, and it might be simpler.

(By the by, the people who made this video somehow managed to turn gold
into ***, overall, but this one song makes it almost worth the price of
admission. The playout solo is all closeup of EC's fingers on the fret-
board, so if you're a novice like me who isn't great at playing leads,
then this is a big help.)

The song is played with a capo on the 4th fret.

Intro (This is basically the picking pattern for the whole song.)
G C G Em D/F# G

Holy Mother, where are you
Em D G
Tonight I feel broken in two
I've seen the stars fall from the sky
Em D G
Holy Mother, can't keep from crying

Oh I need your help this time
Em D G
To get me through this lonely night
Tell me please which way to turn
By myself again

Holy Mother hear my prayer
Somehow I know you're still there {chords as verse I}
Send me please some peace of mind
Take away this pain

Bm G {I'm not really sure about}
I can't wait, I can't wait {this part... but it sounds}
C D {pretty close.}
I can't wait any longer
Bm G
I can't wait, I can't wait
I can't wait for you.

Holy Mother, hear my cry
I've cursed your name a thousand times {chords as verse I}
I've felt the anger running through my soul
All I need is a hand to hold

Oh I feel the end is coming
No longer my legs will run {chords as verse II}
You know how to wrap me
In your arms tonight

When my hands can no longer play
My voice is still a fade away {chords as verse I}
Holy Mother, then I'll be
lying in, safe within your arms.
