    CREAM - BADGE (Clapton & Harrison) From GOODBYE CREAM
            album. Released in January, 1969.
   
    -----------------------------------------------------

    Tabbed by:PJVillanueva




    This song is full of muted rhythm chords, while others 
    are let ring very briefly. The ringing Amadd9 chord and
    the guitar riff are just bright. If you wonder why they 
    named it BADGE, some say that Ringo, who was helping with
    the number, casually read upside down a sheet of paper in
    which it was written "Bridge" & mispelled it for "Badge". 
    They liked it and gave it that name, but the word doesn't
    appear at all in the song. 


 



    Thinkin' 'bout the times you drove in my car.
    Thinkin' that I might have drove you too far.
    And I'm thinkin' 'bout the love that you laid on my table.

    I told you not to wander 'round in the dark.
    I told you 'bout the swans, that they live in the park.
    Then I told you 'bout our kid, now he's married to Mabel.

    Yes, I told you that the light goes up and down.
    Don't you notice how the wheel goes 'round?
    And you better pick yourself up from the ground
    Before they bring the curtain down,
    Yes, before they bring the curtain down.

    Talkin' 'bout a girl that looks quite like you.
    She didn't have the time to wait in the queue.
    She cried away her life since she fell off the cradle.

Doesn't sound bad, but it's not accurate. If you watch videos of Clapton playing this most of the chords are open chords, not barred chords. Also, the Esus2 should be an Emadd2 (024000), at least the way he plays it now.
