MAY YOU NEVER
Eric Clapton

from the album "Slowhand"

Transcribed by Steve Garner


This is a cover of a John Martyn song that Eric recorded for 
his 1977 album "Slowhand". It's pleasant little tune with
some simple acoustic strumming. This may not be the exact way
that Eric Clapton played it on the album, but it sounds close!


** Capo on the 4th fret! **



 G   F   C	       Am
May you never lay your head down 
G	           C
Without a hand to hold
         Am              G               C   F   C
May you never make your bed out in the cold


     G   F   C               Am
And may you never lose your temper 
            G                 C
If you get hit in a bar room fight
         Am              G           C   F   C
May you never lose your woman overnight


            G
Well you're just like a great strong sister to me
        C              F        C
And I know that your love is true
         G    
And you hold no blade for to stab me in my back
   C                 F         C
I know that there's some that do
   G
So please, won't you please, won't you bear it in mind
  N.C.			    F
Love is a lesson tonight in our time
 G					     C   F   C
Please, won't you please bear it in mind for me


     G   F   C	           Am
And may you never lay your head down 
G	           C
Without a hand to hold
         Am              G               C   F   C
May you never make your bed out in the cold


     G   F   C               Am
And may you never lose your temper 
            G                 C
If you get hit in a bar room fight

May you never lose your woman overnight

Well you're just like a great strong brother to me
        C              F        C
And I know that your love is true
         G    
And you never talk dirty behind my back
   C                 F         C
