/ Eric Clapton / Slowhand (1977) / Cocaine guitar tab

From: davies@ils.nwu.edu (Brian Davies)
Subject: Cocaine by Eric Clapton (was REQ)


I can do chords and lyrics.  As far as tab goes, the solos are improvised
over the blues scale in E.


  COCAINE  by J. J. Cale

(the main riff is [E] [E] [D] [E], [E] [D] -- play that twice over each
line of the verses)

If you wanna hang out you've got to take her out, cocaine.
If you wanna get down, down on the ground, cocaine.

  She don't [E] lie, she don't [D] lie, she don't [C] lie [B]
  Cocaine!

If you got bad news, you wanna kick them blues, cocaine.
When your day is done and you wanna run, cocaine.

  Chorus

If your thing is gone and you wanna ride on, cocaine.
Don't forget this fact, you can't get it back, cocaine.

  Chorus

(long solo here?)
