Subject: CRD: Blues Anthem -- Page/Farlow
Date: 9 Aug 1995 23:55:02 +0200

Someone requested Blues Anthem by Jimmy Page and Chris Farlow.  You'll
find the song on Jimmy Page `Outrider' or Chris Farlow `Waiting In The
Wings'.  I love especially the a capella version on `Waiting In The
Wings'.  The lyrics maybe not right, because I'm not native speaking,
sorry for that.

Peace

Holger


Blues Anthem -- Words and Music by Page/Farlow

{Intro}
[E] [E] [A] [E] [E] [F#m B] [E] [E]

{Verse 1}
If I [E]cannot be so happy with [A]out you my [E]dear,
If I cannot hold you close evr'y [F#7]second that you're [B]here,
You must [A]know I can't go on.
[E] Ev'ry [A]time I sing my [E]song.
If I cannot have your love [F#7] I'll [B]sing the [E]blues.

{Verse 2}
Every time I'm feeling low and far away.
All the time I think of you, every second of the day.
And you know you hurt my pride,
Bud I'd rather be by your side.
If I cannot have your love I'll sing the blues.

{Chorus 1}
Sing the [B]blues all my life.  I got [A]trouble I got [E]strife.
How can a man expect to be so [B]free.
[Badd6] To [A]travel this so lonely road [E]and to [A]carry this heavy [E]load,
Is becoming far [E/C#] too much, [F#m]too much [B]for [E]me.

{Verse 3}
If I cannot be so happy then I'm gonna be on my way.
The many nights I needed your love it never worked out that way.
For I must have my babe,
For I'm feeling extremely sad.
If I cannot have your love I'm gonna play the blues.

{Solo}

{Chorus 2}
Sing the [B]blues all my life.  I got [A]trouble I got [E]strife.
How can a man expect to be so [B]free.
[Badd6] To [A]travel this so lonely road [E]and to [A]carry this heavy [E]load,
Is becoming far [E/C#] too much, [F#m]too much [B]for [E]me.
Yes I'd [E]rather have [E/C#]your love [F#m]than [B]singing then [E]blues.
Yes I'd [E]rather have [E/C#]your [A/F#]love baby than sing the [E]blues.
