"Layla"
Lyrics
"What'll you do when you get lonely?
And nobody's waiting by your side?
You've been running and hiding much too long.
You know it's just your foolish pride.

Layla,
You've got me on my knees, Layla.
I'm begging, darling please, Layla.
Darling won't you ease my worried mind.

I tried to give you consolation
When your old man had let you down.
Like a fool, I fell in love with you.
You've turned my whole world upside down.

Layla,
You've got me on my knees, Layla.
I'm begging, darling please, Layla.
Darling won't you ease my worried mind.

Let's make the best of the situation
Before I finally go insane.
Please don't say, we'll never find a way
And tell me all my love's in vain.

Layla,
You've got me on my knees, Layla.
I'm begging, darling please, Layla.
Darling won't you ease my worried mind.

Layla,
You've got me on my knees, Layla.
I'm begging, darling please, Layla.
Darling won't you ease my worried mind.

[Guitar solo]

Layla,
You've got me on my knees, Layla.
I'm begging, darling please, Layla.
Darling won't you ease my worried mind."

The song, Layla, also references two sad stories. One was about Middle East tale of princess Layla who was eternally sad because she was forced to marry a man she didn't love. Other was about how Clapton was in love with Pattie Boyd, Beatles' George Harrison's then wife, who later divorced him to marry Eric.

SGT (Join to see), Layla is one of the few popular songs (at least to me) that sounds just as good unplugged as the original rock version.
