Title:				OLD LOVE 		(E.Clapton, R. Cray)

		Am7     Dm7			G+  G
			I can feel your body
		Am7	F/Dm7			G+  G
			When I`m lying in bed
		Am7     Dm7                  G+  G
			There's too much confusion
		Am7     F/Dm7        G+             G
			Going around through my head

			F                        E7
			And it makes me so angry
			                             Am Am- Am7 D7
			To know that the flame still burns
			F                     E7
			Why can't I get over?
			                 F      E7 . . . .
			When will I ever learn

			    Am7 Dm7 G+ G           Am7 Dm7  G+ G
			Old love,         leave me alone
			    Am7 Dm7 G+ G        Am7 Dm7  G+ G
			Old love,         go on home

		Am7     Dm7                 G+  G
			I can see your face
		Am7     F/Dm7			     G+  G
			But I know that it's not real
		Am7     Dm7                  G+  G
			It's just an illusion
		Am7     F/Dm7                        G+  G
			Caused by how I used to feel

			F                        E7
			And it makes me so angry
			                                   Am AM- Am7 D7
			To know that the flame will always burn
			F                    E7
			I'll never get over
			                           F      E7 . . . .
			I know now that I'll never learn

			    Am7 Dm7 G+ G           Am7 Dm7  G+ G
			Old love,         leave me alone
			    Am7 Dm7 G+ G        Am7 Dm7  G+ G
			Old love,         go on home

Just a couple of things I see as errors (or possibly not, but different than the way I play it and different than the way I've seen EC play it as well).

The "G+" should actually be a G7 sus4. 3-5-3-5-3-3

Try it that way, going from the G7 sus4 to a Gmaj barre chord. I think you'll appreciate how nicely it sounds. I play all of these as barre chords with the exception of the E maj, and it sounds really good on acoustic this way.

The "Am-" chord is actually called an Am Maj7. (Really good as a passing chord between Am and Am7. Not sure I've ever seen anyone other than Clapton and George Harrison use it extensively. But I digress.

Other than that, it's a fantastic chord chart and saves me from having to type it up myself for my student wanting to learn this song. :)
