[Verse] Both Guitars

C                E7           A/G
 I once lived the life of a millionaire
Dm             A7           Dm           Fig. I
 Spent all my money, didn't have any care
F             F#          C     Fig. II    A/G
 Took all my friends out for a mighty good time
D7           D7/F#       G7
 We bought bootleg liquor, champagne, and wine


C         E7         A/G
 Then I began to fall so low
Dm            A7              Dm           Fig. I   
 Lost all my good friends, had nowhere to go
F           F#     C  Fig. II  A/G
 I get my hands on a dollar again
D7         D7/F#       G7
 I'm gonna hang on to it till that eagle grins


[Chorus] Both Guitars

C     E7       A/G
 Cause nobody knows you
Dm           A7       Dm   Fig. I  
 When you're down and out
F        F#    C Fig. II  A/G
 In your pocket, not one penny
D7        D7/F#    G7
 And as for friends, you don't have any


[Verse] Both Guitars

C             E7          A/G
 When you get back up on your feet again
Dm         A7               Dm            Fig. I
 Everybody wants to be your long lost friend 
F      F#         C  Fig. II   A/G
 Said its strange without any doubt 
D7      D7/F#           G7
 Nobody knows you when you're down and out 


[Solo] Guitar II (Plays Verse Chord Progression twice)

[Chorus] Both Guitars


C     E7       A/G
 Cause nobody knows you
Dm           A7       Dm   Fig. I  
 When you're down and out
F        F#    C Fig. II  A/G
 In your pocket, not one penny
D7        D7/F#    G7
 And as for friends, you don't have any


[Verse] Both Guitars

C             E7         A/G
 When you get back up on your feet again
Dm         A7               Dm            Fig. I
 Everybody wants to be your long lost friend 
F      F#         C  Fig. II   A/G
 Said its strange without any doubt 
D7      D7/F#     Fig. I

F   F#            C  Fig II
 ...Nobody knows you

 Nobody knows you

 Nobody knows you 

 When you're down and out

instead of just C and A, clapton uses 7s. the solo is perfect and great job on everything else!

p.s. i think it sounds better if you play F#dim instead of just F#. it opens up a lot more possibilities for fooling around with the song because there are so many different ways to play an F#dim so you can play anywhere on the neck you want to.

im pretty sure clapton plays a D7 instead of the F# not sure though but i just watched a video on youtube and it was definately not an F#
