Layla

Lyrics: Eric Clapton, Jim Gordon
Music: Eric Clapton, Jim Gordon

Played by Phil Lesh and Friends in 2012.

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

Chorus
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
Turned my whole world upside down

[chorus]

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

[chorus]


[chorus]
