Subject: mean old world- eric clapton

MEAN OLD WORLD- Eric Clapton and Duane Allman

TUNING: E B E G# B E, capo 3rd fret

E(2)                    A                    E   RIFF
This city mean old world, try livin' by yourself
A                        A                   E   RIFF
This city mean old world, try livin' by yourself
B                          A                      E  RIFF
Can't get the one you love, have to use somebody else

I've got the blues, gonna pack my things and go
I've got the blues, gonna pack my things and go
Guess you don't love me, lovin' mister so and so

SOLO (TWO TIMES)

Sometimes I wonder why can your love be so cold
Sometimes I wonder why can your love be so cold
I guess you don't love me, gonna pack my things and go

SOLO (to end)

E  ------------0---------0-----0-|

G# -1/3----3-------3p1-------3---|

CHORDS:

G# -0--5--7---8---|

E  -0--5--7---0---|


NOTE:  This is VERY rough and simplified.  Think of it as the "fake book"
version.  I am sure it's played in Open E though.  There is a tab guitar
book covering all of the Crossroads box set (which I don't have) that I
know has this note for note.  If you want the real thing, buy the book.

Lame. This one is all over the web and is woefully incomplete.
