RUN SO FAR
Eric Clapton

from the album "Journeyman"


Transcribed by Steve Garner (s_garner@hotmail.com)


NOTES: This song was written by Eric's friend George Harrison,
       and it appears on Eric's 1989 "Journeyman" album. The song
       has several guitar parts, including a rhythm guitar playing
       the chords, a lead guitar playing the fills, and a slide
       guitar played by George Harrison. I have transcribed the
       rhythm guitar part and some of the leads/fills.

Verse 1:

C    G    C                      F
You fly out as your smile wears thin
   C   G    C                      F
And I sigh, knowing the mess you're in
                      G          C
And you know that you can't get away
                       G              C       (play fill #1)
And you know you can't hide it from yourself


Chorus 1: (play intro)

 C      G      C     G
Lonely days, heavy heart
 C      G                  C
No escape, can only run so far


Verse 2:

C  G     C                   F
I know something I ought to say
C      G      C               F     (play fill #2 after "here")
Stuck here, trying to find a way    (play fill #3 after "way")
                      G          C
And you know that you can't get away
                       G              C       (play fill #1)
And you know you can't hide it from yourself


Chorus 2: (play intro twice)

C       G       C      G
Lonely nights, blue guitar
C       G                    C    G
No way out, can only run so far
C        G      C      G
Lonesome tears at the bar
C        G                      C
One way street, can only run so far


Verse 3:

C     G      C             F
Oooh ooooh, oooohh ooooh oooh
C   G   C                      F          (play fill #2)
I pray that you might make it through
C         G      C                 F      (play fill #3)
Those teardrops they now seem a part of you
                      G          C
And you know that you can't get away
                        G            C          (play fill #1)
And you know you can't hide it from yourself


Chorus 3: (play intro three times)

 C       G      C    G
Fallin' down, under par
 C        G                     C    G
Can't get out, can only run so far
 C       G      C     G
Lonely days, heavy heart
 C      G                   C    G
No escape, can only run so far
 C          G    C     G
Lonesome tears at the bar
 C        G                      C
One way street, can only run so far


Ending:

C     G      C             F
Oooh ooooh, oooohh ooooh oooh
C     G      C             F
Oooh ooooh, oooohh ooooh oooh
