[E] Just a tour[A]ride, on [C#m] the run [B] 
[E] How did I [A] get here, what [C#m] have I done [B]
[E] When will [A] all my hopes [C#m] arise [B] 
[E] And how will I [A] know him, 
[C#m] when I look in [B] my father's eyes [E]

VERSE 2:

[B] Then the light begins [F#] to shine [B]
[C#m] And I hear those [C#m7] ancient [F#] lullabyes [B] 
[B] And as I [C#m7] watch the [F#] seedling grow, [B]
[C#m] I feel my heart [Bm7] start to [F#m] overflow [E] (Fill 2)

[E] Where do I [A] find [C#m] the words to say [B] 
[E] And how do I [A] teach him, what [C#m] do we play [B]
[E] Bit by [A] bit, [C#m] I realize [B] 
[E] That's when I [A] need them, 
[C#m] That's when I need [B] my father's eyes [E]

[E] Look into [A] my father's [C#m] eyes [B]
My father's eyes [E] [A] [C#m] That's when I need [B] my father's eyes[E]

VERSE 3:

[B] When the jagged edge [F#] appears [B]
[C#m] Through the [C#m7] distant [F#] clouds of tears [B] 
[B] And, I'm like a bridge [C#m7] that was [F#] washed away [B]
[C#m] My foundations were [Bm7] made of [F#m] clay [E] (Fill 2)

[E] And as my [A] soul [C#m] slides down to die [B] 
[E] How could I [A] lose him, what [C#m] did I try [B]
[E] Bit by [A] bit, [C#m] I realize [B] 
[E] That he was here [A] with me, 
[C#m] and I looked into [B] my father's eyes [E]

CHORUS:

[E] Look into [A] my father's [C#m] eyes [B]
My father's eyes [E] [A] [C#m] I looked into [B] my father's eyes[E]
[E]Look into [A] my father's [C#m] eyes [B]
My father's eyes [E] [A] [C#m] [B] my father's eyes
[E] Look into [A] my father's [C#m] eyes [B]
My father's eyes [E] [A] [C#m] I looked into [B] my father's eyes[E]*

*Fade out


I decided to post this tab, when I saw the other tab of 
"My fatherīs eyes". I hope youīll think this one is better.
It was hard to transcribe it, but if you think itīs hard to play,
follow my ordinary advice.
        "-If you got the cd, listen to the song, and play!"

Enjoy! John.H (Visit http://user.tninet.se/~jax696n/ for more clapton tabs)
