[Intro]

There is another guitar here that I haven't tabbed, but you can figure that one out.
I think these two parts are actually two different guitars, but I'm not sure.

   E       A     E                     E       A   E

This is the basic part behind the verse:

     If I could reach the stars          Pull one down for you
   E       A     E                     E       A   E
   +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +

      Shining on my heart                So you could see the truth
   E       A     E                     E       A   E
   +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +

     Then this love I have inside     is everything it seems

     But for now I find                  it's only in my dreams
   E       A     E                     E       A     G#
   +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +     +   +   +   +

Here's the chorus.  There isn't much guitar, so just strum this:

          F#m    G#     C#m
That I can    change the world
F#m           G#               C#m
I will be the sunlight in your universe
F#m               G#              C#m    Cm    Bm
You will think my love was really some - thing good
     A    E     G#m Gm F#m
Baby if I could cha - nge the world

Clapton does this after the chorus:

   E       A       E                 E              A              E
   +   +   +   +       +  +  +  +    +     +        +     +        +   +       +       +
e:-------------0-----|-------------|----------------------------|-----------------------------|
B:-------0-----------|-------------|----------------------------|-----------------------------|
G:---0h1---2-----2/4-|-------------|---2/4----4\2p0-2--0--------|-----------------------------|
D:---2-----2---------|-------------|----------------------2p0-2-|----------2---------------2--|
A:-------------------|-------------|----------------------------|------2h4-----0h2-0h2-0h2----|
E:-------------------|-------------|----------------------------|-----------------------------|


He continues into another verse, and plays the same as the last verse


Then a chorus, which has a bit added to the end:


That I can change the world
I will be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
     A    C#m   Bm Bbm A      E
Baby if I could cha - nge the world
     A    C#m   Bm Bbm A
Baby if I could cha - nge the world


Here's the solo:

LYRICS:


[Verse]
If I could reach the stars I'd pull one down for you
Shine it on my heart so you could see the truth
That this love I have inside is everything it seems
But for now I find it's only in my dreams


[Chorus]
That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world


[Verse]
If I could be king even for a day
I'd take you as my queen I'd have it no other way
And our love will rule in this kingdom we have made
Till then I'd be a fool wishin' for the day


[Chorus]
That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world
Baby if I could change the world


[Solo]


[Chorus]
That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world
Baby if I could change the world
Baby if I could change the world
