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

And may you never lose your temper
            G                 C

   C                 F         C
