Blue Eyes Blues

B    F#         G#m          E  
I thought that you'd been loving me  
B    F#         G#m          E  
In your eyes I thought I saw my heaven 
B    F#         G#m          E    B   F#     E 
But now my heavens gone away and I'm out in the cold 

But you were only playing 
 B         F#         E         F# 
You were only playing with my heart 
I was never waiting 
 B         F#             E        F#     
I was never waiting for the tears to start 

 Asus4       Em      F#m      D5 
It was you, who put the clouds around me 
 Asus4       E         F#m         D5 
It was you, who made the tears fall down 
 Asus4       E         F#m         D5 
Only you, who put these clouds around me 
 Asus4       E         F#m         D5 
It was you, It was you, who made my blue eyes blue 
 Asus4       E         F#m D  Asus4 
Oh oh, never should have trusted you 

I thought that I'd be all you need 
In your eyes I thought I saw forever 
And now forever's come and gone 
And I'm still here alone 

pre Chorus: 
You had me believing 
You had me believing in a life 
I could never see it 
I could never see it till I saw good bye 

It was you....etc 

This song has a pretty tricky fingerpicked rhythm, especially on the 
pre Chorus where you have to slide  
down the fretboard playing the chords in their barred C shapes in a 
fluid motion. 

For all the eric anoraks like myself, the rhythm is like that that he 
uses on Brokenhearted when played live (eg Music for Monserrat) 

For the authentic tone, go and buy a 000-28EC Martin Acoustic, 
according to Eric they are the best acoustic guitars ever made. I have 
one and I agree.
