Holy Mother, from Eric Clapton's "August".

My source for this is the video "The Cream of Eric Clapton" which has a live
performance of this song, so it might be in a different key than the album
version, and it might be simpler.

(By the by, the people who made this video somehow managed to turn gold
into sh*t, overall, but this one song makes it almost worth the price of
admission.  The playout solo is all closeup of EC's fingers on the fret-
board, so if you're a novice like me who isn't great at playing leads,
then this is a big help.)

The song is played with a capo on the 4th fret.

Intro  (This is basically the picking pattern for the whole song.)
  G                     C       G           Em              D/F#  G

G               C      G
Holy Mother, where are you
Em               D        G
Tonight I feel broken in two
G                         C        G
I've seen the stars fall from the sky
Em                  D          G
Holy Mother, can't keep from crying

C               G
Oh I need your help this time
Em                      D      G
To get me through this lonely night
C                     G
Tell me please which way to turn
D           G
By myself again


Holy Mother hear my prayer
Somehow I know you're still there       {chords as verse I}
Send me please some peace of mind
Take away this pain

         Bm            G          {I'm not really sure about}
I can't wait, I can't wait        {this part... but it sounds}
         C        D               {pretty close.}
I can't wait any longer
         Bm            G
I can't wait, I can't wait
         C        D
I can't wait for you.

Holy Mother, hear my cry
I've cursed your name a thousand times          {chords as verse I}
I've felt the anger running through my soul
All I need is a hand to hold

Oh I feel the end is coming
No longer my legs will run                      {chords as verse II}
You know how to wrap me
In your arms tonight

When my hands can no longer play
My voice is still a fade away                   {chords as verse I}
Holy Mother, then I'll be
lying in, safe within your arms.
