Here's a fairly easy song to play, verse verse chorus, verse verse chorus. I've tabbed a really basic picking pattern for this and I'm doing it without a guitar in hand so use it a as a rough guide and find a picking pattern that works for you. The only real emphasis is on the First Beat on the A String.
Chords:

Cadd9 – 030030
Em7 – 020030
Gm/Bb – 010030
D – 000232
F – 133211 or 003210 (if you don't want to use barre chords)
G – 355433 or 005430 (if you don't want to use barre chords)
A – 002220
Asus – 002230
Dsus – 000233
Em – 022000
F#m – 033000

CAN'T FIND MY WAY HOME
Blind Faith

Cadd9 Em7
Come down off your throne
Gm/Bb D
And leave your body alone
F G D
Somebody must change

Cadd9 Em7
You are the reason
Gm/Bb D
I've been waiting so long
F G D
Somebody holds the key

G A Asus D Dsus D
Well I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
Em G F#m Em D
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

Cadd9 Em7
Come down on your own
Gm/Bb D
And leave your body alone (at home; alternate verse)
F G D
Somebody must change

Cadd9 G
You are the reason
Gm/Bb D
I've been waiting all these years
F G D
Somebody holds the Key

G A Asus D Dsus D
Well I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
Em G F#m Em D
And I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home
But I can't find my way home
Still I can't find my way home
And I aint done nothing wrong
But I can't find my way home

Thanks a bunch! This is on my list of songs to learn. Now that you submitted this, I might have to bump up the priority of learning it.

Sorry MoGal, I only know this guitar voicing.

If anyone else that knows this song, maybe they can help out with the second guitar part.

Klim - cool song !!

However - a small typo in the tab above - seems like the F and G chords in the "basic picking for verse" have ended up one string too high ;-)

And Mogal

In case you haven't figured it out - here is a start - oh, the only version I have is from a live album - Eric Clapton live in the 70s - dunno which version you have in mind.

I noodled a little around - strangely* enough the song is in d minor. At the beginning the second guitar seems to be playing around with the d minor scale (in 1st position??)

Try something like this in between the lines for instance:


1 & 2 & 3 & 4
-----------------------
-----------------------
-----------------------
------0-0-3-0----0-------
--0h3---------3-------
----------------------

For the solo - I did some tabbing - this is not note for note - but it gives a general idea of the first part. Pretty sure about the position - again D minor scale, it starts about 2:34 on my recording of it:


2:34
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------10-10-
-----6-8-----------------------------------------------------------------------10-13-------
-7-7-----------------10-9-7----7----------------------------------10-12p10-----------------
----------------------------10---10-7-----------------------10-12----------h10-------------
--------------------------------------10-8---------8-10-s12--------------------------------
-------------------------------------------10---10-----------------------------------------

Ah and then vocals are terrific. Will have to try to figure out the two parts (Clapton and Winwood is it???) another night.

* For the modal thinkers here this is probably not strange at all. But for me - with that chord progression d minor would not have been my first choice. I just played around with the melody and realised I was playing in d.

...only thing I know how to do is to keep on keepin' on...

Hmm - played it yesterday - we're considering it for the band.

I think actually the chords may more accurately be

D7(dm7): x3023(1/x)
G7: x2003(1)
gm: x1003x
D: x00232

The important thing going on is the descending bass line and the D note at the top. Its hard to tell what the notes plucked in between are. The first D chord does not seem to have a explicit third at all, except sometimes when the second guitar starts off at a F# - making it a D

Would be happy to have another opinion tho' - using an open E at the top sounds very good too IMO - then its more like

"D9"
G6
gm6

Hey Lars,

Yes the descending bass line is that most recognizable part of the song.

As far as the rest for picking and such, I've just made it easier to pick for myself.

Funny during New Years Eve, I had a party at my house and we played that song and the other guitarist played it with open chords, no descending bass line or anything.

My philosophy is really a basic campfire playing, so I can try and sign along with the song.

But the more tips that will make the song more like the original all the better.

Thanks, Kenny

Just thought I'd chip in something on the vocal as well

(looked aroud for some software for writing SN - didn't find it)

These are notes to sing not the chords

D A G F# G
C C C B
Come down off your throne
D F F F G F D
B Bb Bb Bb A A
And leave your body alone
A G F D D
C B B B A
Somebody must change
