Words & Music:

Eric Clapton & L'Angelo Misterioso (George Harrison)


This Cream hit got its name when Clapton couldn't read Harrison's handwriting and misread "Bridge" for "Badge".  Thanks to Thomas Heft for the chords.


Am  D  [2x]


Am                 D                      Em

Thinkin' 'bout the times your drove in my car.

Am              D                        Em(add9)    Em

Thinkin' that I might have drove you too far.

C                         Am                       Bm   Am(add9)

And I'm thinkin' bout the love that you laid on my table.


I told you not to wander 'round in the dark.

I told you 'bout the swans, that they live in the park.

Then I told you 'bout our kid, now he's married to Mabel.



D  CM7  G/B  G  [2x]

D      CM7           G/B       G    D

Yes, I told you that the light goes up and down.

Don't you notice how the wheel goes 'round?

And you better pick yourself up from the ground

Before they bring the curtain down.

     CM7                   G/B     G   D  C

Yes, before they bring the curtain down.



G/B    G    D    CM7  [6x - last time, end on D]


Talkin' 'bout a girl that looks quite like you.

She didn't have the time to wait in the queue.

C                  Am                          Bm     Am(add9)

She cried away her life since she fell off the cradle.
