Hard Times  Eric Clapton

My mother told [D9]me
[F#7]Before she passed away
Said [Bm]son when I'm [Bm7/Bb]gone
[D9]Don't for[D7]get to pray
'Cause there'll be [G]hard times[Abdim]
Lord, those[D] ha[C]rd[B7] times
[Bb7]Who knows [A]better than [D]I? [A7]


Well I soon found out
Just what she meant
When I had to pawn my clothes
Just to pay the rent
Talkin' 'bout hard times
Lord, those hard times
[Bb7]Who knows [A]better than [D]I? [A7]

(Sax solo/Guitar solo)

[Bb7]     [A7]    [D]   [E9]    [Eb9]                     
I had a woman
Who was always around
But when I lost my money
She put me down
Talkin' 'bout hard times
Hard times
Yeah, [Bb7]yeah, who [A7]knows better than [D]I? [F9]    [E9(2]       [D9]
Lord, [F#7]one of these days
There'll be no more sorrow
When I pass away
And no more hard times
No more hard times
Yeah, yeah, who knows better than I?

(play single notes: E Eb A Db D and end on D9)
