Bell Bottom Blues

Lyrics: Eric Clapton
Music: Eric Clapton

Sung by Anders Osborne with Phil Lesh and Friends in November 2013 as part of their (and American Jubilee's) cover of the album "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs".

Bell bottom blues, you made me cry
I don't wanna lose this feelin'
And if I could choose a place to die
It would be in your arms

Do you wanna see me crawl across the floor to you
Do you wanna hear me beg you to take me back
I'd gladly do it because

I don't wanna fade away
Give me one more day, please
I don't wanna fade away
In your heart I wanna stay

It's all wrong, but it's all right
The way that you treat me baby, ooh
Once I was strong but I lost the fight
You won't find a better loser

Do you wanna see me crawl across the floor to you
Do you wanna hear me beg you to take me back
I'd gladly do it because

I don't wanna fade away
Give me one more day, please
I don't wanna fade away
In your heart I wanna stay

Do you wanna see me crawl across the floor to you
Do you wanna hear me beg you to take me back
I'd gladly do it because

I don't wanna fade away
Give me one more day, please
I don't wanna fade away
In your heart I wanna stay

Bell bottom blues, don't say goodbye
I'm sure we're gonna meet again
And if we do, don't you be surprised
If you find me with another lover, oh

Do you wanna see me crawl across the floor to you
Do you wanna hear me beg you to take me back
I'd gladly do it because

I don't wanna fade away
Give me one more day, please
I don't wanna fade away
In your heart I wanna stay

I don't wanna fade away
Give me one more day, please
I don't wanna fade away
In your heart I wanna stay

I don't wanna fade away
Give me one more day, please
I don't wanna fade away
In your heart I wanna stay
