Subject: CRD: Clapton's "Help Me Up"

An underappreciated gem off of the Rush soundtrack...


  HELP ME UP  by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings

Transcribed by Brian Davies (davies@ils.nwu.edu)

  [Em]  [G]  [Em]  [G]

(If that Em sounds a little too dark to you, try 022x00 (E5?))

[Em] Are you going to help me [G] or will you let me down?
[Em] I'm looking for a true love [G] but am I lost or found?
[Em] And will we cry in passion [G] or will we cry in pain?
[Em] And will our lonely teardrops [G] fill the world with rain?

  Help me [Em] up, [Bm] don't you let me [C] down. [Am]
  I'm gonna [G] wake up in [C] heaven, not the [Am] cold, cold [G] ground.

  [Em]  [G]  [Em]  [G]
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/eric_clapton/help_me_up_crd.html ]
[Em] Can't you hear the lovers [G] crying in the night?
[Em] They spend their whole lives trying; [G] still can't get it right.
[Em] I don't know where we're going [G] but I guess we'll start
[Em] And just to show that I mean it, [G] baby here's my heart.

  Chorus

(Walk it up hard on the bass: G G B B C C D D)

[D] Living on my [D#dim] feelings, [Em] feelings all I [G] know.
[C] Baby once we [D] touch it, we'll [C] never let it [G] go.

(I'm guessing on the D#dim -- he pulls something weird out of his hat,
and this sounds decent.)

  [Em]  [G]  [Em]  [G]
